Too often Too little 3/5
Need better selection of details
Half the sites are paywalled 3/5
Quartz does notify you about some interesting stories, but many are paywalled. Is there a feature to select only sites you subscribe to? Of course it is sometimes nice to also see what is out there in case you would want to subscribe.
More of The Same 1/5
By Driver 172
Just another in a series of apps that claim to be the end-all in news coverage that does little more than tap into other news outlets. They even offer “FOX “News.” If I wanted to be misinformed I’d go directly to their website.
I don’t want an app with ads (I’ll pay to avoid this) and I don’t want a news app that is laced with videos. I don’t care what the CEO of a furniture empire looks like.
I just want to read unbiased news without input from the source.
Good stuff 5/5
Actually important stories
Good work 5/5
By my helloes
The Q app is really doing a good job with the news
Where are my other notifications? 1/5
By In central Minn
After installing this app, all my notifications except for this app stopped. I have deleted the app but no notifications. I have gone to settings/notifications and everything appears alright. This app should not have done this.
All articles cutting edge newness 5/5
By Vigilant viewer
Broad variety very informative with scholarly contributions
By scallywagger alex
Loved this app, for all newsworthyness. Needs a dark mode like on Newspicks
It’s fun 5/5
Come and have a fun with you idea
Community-centric with clean functionality 5/5
By Cali Skye
Quartz is a fantastic app which allows you to glean insight from CEOs & leaders in various industries, whilst curating your own “timeline” of saved articles & thoughts. Instantly easy to use.
Not representative of all news agencies 1/5
I downloaded the app and checked out all the news providers, every news supplier is very left of center, why is it that we can't get balanced news coverage.
UI design needs work 2/5
Overall the concept is good, having people comment and even post news.
But, I’m not a fan of the UI layout. I do like the Flipboard app UI.
All your news in one place 5/5
A phenomenal app to read the latest and most important stories. Although my favorite part is the community aspect - Not only do I get access to endless quality content, but I also get to read comments from business leaders and CEOs. This app is great to gain knowledge on different topics and learn perspectives from people all across the globe.
A scratchpad to store stories 5/5
I’m using the app just like how I use pocket—instead of saving online content to the pocket, I pick it on Quartz, which, in addition to features offered by Pocket, also allows me to leave a thought/note if I’ve read through the story, or just pick it and I can read it and add a comment later. I also get to see what others are commenting, another useful feature I’m not getting elsewhere.
News inside the update ? 1/5
Why is there news inside the update descriptions??
Let me cancel the membership!! 1/5
By letmego 111111111111
I emailed to you several times to cancel the membership after one month trial because got charged yearly subscription fee, not monthly one which was written as policy. There is simply no menu to instruct how to cancel the membership and you didn’t answer to my emails so that you just keep charging the fee to me.
This is very unappreciative of doing service and you need to give freedom to subscribers to cancel.
Great for younger people 5/5
Great app for the younger people I'm 20 with no interest in the news but this app is fully customizable to your liking
Phishing scam BS 1/5
This app immediately sends a phishing spam email to you. Beware!
No more newspapers 5/5
I’ve been an investment banker for many years, always reading the physical newspapers. Now, I’m just using Quartz, as I find the community aspect really appealing.
Still get the paper every morning, but I just don’t find it all that exciting.
Two things I need in the morning: coffee and Quartz 5/5
Quartz has become indispensable to my daily routine—was never a twitter user, but this fills my need for good news and good commentary.
It’s jolly good!
Liberal blather 1/5
By None needed123
Singing to the choir, focused on one political side only. If you want to filter out all other opinions this is for you
All Notifications are about Trump 1/5
I have opted in to receive notifications, there’s so much going on, but the only updates I get are about the president’s lawyer, or someone he hired, or someone he knew that went to jail. I enjoy hearing politics every now and then but this is every single notification. I’m switching to the SmartNews App.
Great news content 5/5
By The mad hatterette
I thought at first it was only Quartz news but it’s actually most of, if not all the major news publications. They do a great job posting breaking news. I love the social media aspect of it, and it’s nice to read expert input to understand the article from different point of views. It’s my new favorite app.
Awesome news app 5/5
Love the layout and I can read what I’m really interested in. I also love that I can share articles I feel are important and share my opinions!
Same Old stuff 1/5
CNN, New York Times and the whole gang of the same old stuff. Not balanced. I was hoping for a news outlet with out the left or right but no. I want to hear from goth sides i rear the Times AND the post and still
Have sort through the dubious claims of
Insight on both sides. I really need someone who will report the facts and let me decide what I think. I really don’t care what Fox or CNN think.
A Must Have! 5/5
Super user friendly app with lots and lots of interesting content. Highly recommended!
Great news app 5/5
I’ve been using the quartz daily brief app for a while and I really like it but i think this one is even better. So far the comments have been thoughtful and informative and the featured articles have been good. Would (do) recommend.
You forgot to consider the visual impaired when u developed his app. 1/5
And there are a lot of us out there. I use an iPad for that very reason. Your concept however is good. Rather than remove the app, I will wait and see if you care enough to respond and consider making changes to accommodate us.
Best app everrrr! 5/5
Love how I can find all the news in this user friendly app - totally recommend. Super fan!
Uninstall Reinstall 1/5
By Tim Oberholzee
I was a NewsPicks user who has come over in the merger these past few days. I have had issues logging into the Quartz app. Two days in a row I have received a connection error message and have had to uninstall to get past it. Third time better be the charm or I am done.
Twitter without everything you hate about Twitter 5/5
Fantastic news app for smart people who want real conversation without the name-calling and nonsense that fills up other alternatives.
News with knowledge 5/5
By Lan V.
I used to use lots of news apps everyday, switching between them trying to find the best stories. Tiresome.
I’ve been a huge quartz fan for a long time, and they gave me just what I wanted. Curated news, expert commentary, and a great community!
Good app from a good org 5/5
Quartz is one of my favorite news companies and it brings me joy that they’re expanding. This app is a standard but strong entrance into the foray. Mazels!
The future of media 5/5
This is what real “community” looks like. Real people actively engaging about topics that matter. The social media companies should take notice...
Quartz has done it again 5/5
By Lexie Ernst
I’ve been a fan of Quartz since its founding days... but this is my favorite move they have made yet. All of their great content available in my pocket.. and I love the weekly specific education piece
A better way to discuss the news 5/5
Love the commenting and sharing functionality in the app. Great way to discuss breaking news with smart people, and provide context on the stories that I want more insight into.
Great app, heavy subscription 5/5
$15 a month is more than I pay the NYT
