Your news feeds are biased in one direction 1/5
By Bo Daddy 54
I signed up to get local information from my hometown of Roswell. Had no idea your national news feeds would be so slanted towards the Democratic Party. Just scrolled through all your news feeds, and I’m only seeing one side of the story. So I’m out...
Starting to show bias news only 1/5
If this app continues to show bias, propaganda, and false narratives from Cnn or msnbc I’ll delete the app!! I’ve seen enough snippets!! This app won’t stop with bias news “DELETED”
I feel informed 5/5
I really appreciate SmartNews. The depth and variety- I can choose what I’m interested in and get well researched information. I am not just informed, I’m educated.
Virus 19 5/5
By kk !!
I really like all the major issues you provide
Not trustworthy 2/5
I guess this would be ok if you want your news source to be skewed by their personal political beliefs. The first article I read was about a news show I personally watched on television this morning where the journalist implied meaning and left out important segments that conveyed a totally opposite message. I had to delete app immediately
Review for Smart News 5/5
I like to get the alerts so I am not watching so much news which is depressing! They are short and not so lengthy to view, too. Thank you for having them available.
It great with the latest news and with accurate information. I’m thinking of canceling my newspaper.

Best News Updates 5/5
This is my first GoTo News App! Follows my Moms town as well as my own and The World!
Don’t bother 1/5
I downloaded this app to have local news about the Coronavirus pandemic. However, this is just another means of bashing the Trump administration and finding fault wherever possible. Don’t bother, you can find your news without this needless biased aggregator. Thumbs down!
Bias - extreme left wing views. Your bias is sometimes fake news. 1/5
By middle of the road person
Decent but could be improved 3/5
The only reason I use this app is for local news. I'd like the ability to put the local tab first, but it seems that's impossible as top news is used for ad promotion and embedded ad articles and clickbait material for ad revenue.
Not so great 1/5
Promised very local coronavirus news. Was there first day, county level. Now it’s gone. I’m sure you’ll tell me I should have done this or that. Shouldn’t be hard to find.
Not happy 1/5
I don’t appreciate that liberal article about immigration.
By china chinita
I love it , it keeps up on everything , I would recommend it to everyone one ... just try it you will not regret it 👍
Fake news 1/5
Very one sided politically. I’d like to cancel it. Also banners.
Too much trash Trump during a crisis. Will delete app as I thought this would be more neutral. Too bad!!!!
Too much speculative sensationalism and pro - Trumpian 1/5
Bias pro Trump and tricky ads which are undesirable. Misleading and risky.
Thought I was getting actual News. Turns out I’m seeing a lot of FAKE NEWS! Left leaning for sure! Deleting this app. 👎🏼
Visit this news feed regularly 5/5
I enjoy reading current events. This is one of my favorite new feeds. Thank you for the news worthy content.
Biased Much? 1/5
I kept this app for 10 days just in case I was being over sensitive.... but when I see an article complaining that the President hasn't taken a certain action THEN see another article complaining when he takes the action he was exhorted to take I gotta find my news elsewhere.

You claim this app is balanced but upon initial install the feed is FULL of liberal BS - without me clicking on a single story. If it were unbiased and balanced I would expect to see a roughly equal number of liberal and conservative view points - but that is not the case.
AVOID THIS APP UNLESS YOU LIKE READING LIBERAL LIES.
Clickbait Aggregator 2/5
By No Cartels
If you like Twitter on steroids, read SmartNews.
Update: I received a response from SmartNews explaining what they do...news aggregator of “what’s trending on the web.” The lack of self-awareness is mind boggling. Twitter on steroids.
Late News 5/5
Keeps me up timely on the latest news in my area as well as nationally!
Having trouble opening the app on my iPad 3/5
I have had this app on my iPhone for a while and it works well. I installed it on my iPad and it does not open. I click on the icon and it starts to open then goes back to An unopened icon??? It never completely opens. I have tried deleting and reinstalling the app a few times - and I still have this problem?. Please help
Your smart news is wonderful,love it 5/5
Smart News is awesome,love it❤️
Too much 3/5
Your newsfeed is a bit too much at times and too much like Access Hollywood or extra extra. A bit overwhelming.
Where’s the balance (lacks true journalism) should be called Smart(?) Opinion 1/5
By Sammy S T
Title says it all
Some false/spin leaking through now 3/5
Some of the “balance“ is letting in slanted & untrue stories now.
I like reading the local news but I don’t like “You Won!” pop ups that aren’t legit
Old news!!!! 2/5
By louse news
Give us current news and delete old news.
I downloaded this app! I love getting the updates, Please can you post how many people have survived the COVID-19. There has been so much bad news. Spread some good news please.

I’m enjoying smart news especially where my local news is concerned
Great source of news. 5/5
By so ute paddler
Love smart news. Timely and believable.
By ny liberal
Smart news attempts to identify ALL major distributors so that the reader can discern. Compare sane story from 3 perspectives
Doesn’t work 1/5
I think I might like it, but it doesn’t show the articles.
Need balance 1/5
There is no balance in your news sources. If your going to pull in The Daily Beast, then pull in Breitbart news. I see Politico, but not The Hill. No Daily Caller. Because news is seldom without a leaning left or right, so a responsible consumer needs to read both sides. Your app is representing almost exclusively left leaning news producers.
By Jan Phone
Simple and to the point.
Very happy. Tks
Great News Ap 5/5
Instant news updates! Love it!!
A lot of news in a short amount of time 5/5
By I C L
Great news source 5/5
Love it, it has everything
How about putting your stories in English 1/5
Not everyone in Kissimmee is Spanish. I understand you want to get your articles across to the Spanish community but not everyone speaks Spanish !!
I really thought this was a good app for information, I guess I was wrong !!
The news is all reading no video to listen too I’m sure I’m not only one that needs to hear audio
My opinion 1/5
You are way too liberal😶
Most dependable news app 5/5
I use SmartNews to get the most accurate and up to date information around our country.
Up to date news 5/5
Live this app. Always provides breaking news, local, state and worldwide.
I want unbiased news. I thought this was supposed to do that. 1/5
By DKG 80249
I was told when I agreed to add this app it would be unbiased news. You know non-political.
After reading the article about Harry and Meghan I learned that indeed this site allows biased articles.
I do not need an app that is just like Facebook.
Clean it up.
I thought this was a free app as I was “finishing” saw thanks for payment went so fast I could not read it. Please cancel!!
