In the past few months, my mom and I’ve switched to get my news through Newsbreak. Its entire news feed revolves around our personal interests. I like the way they present the “Following” tab as well as “For You” tab, both delivering personalized news feed. I am also impressed by the numerous good-quality sources they have, which seems to be the key metrics for a good news app right now. The full coverage of local news is the reason my mom love this app and choose it, as my family can get the latest news from our county and the news around the world. I do not get swamped with push notifications that much. .. the notifications I do receive are nice and gentle reminders of good stories that are available to read, which also reminds me that I have the application (which is nice! ). The only glitch is that sometimes they get me the old news stories in the notification, which confused me a little bit. I am looking forward to a way to report this error to the team so that they can do something about it. General speaking, Newsbreak is my favorite news app among several for now!

Finally a company creates and excellent News app with a great and comfortable experience!!! News Break app I just want to give a shout out to your company and team. Normally I don’t care about news reporting agencies. However, the news break app is so far the best service I’ve ever used to date. It perfectly blends local news with national news. Also, yes like everyone else I can’t stand advertisements or advertising, but I know its necessary for revenue. News Break app beautiful balances this too! They do it in a way we’re advertisements are not, “IN YOUR FACE” excessive and overwhelming! Kudos News Break App for truly displaying news I can truly use of interest. I love how you take me directly to the news articles without any caked on advertising fluff! Simply beautiful!!!!! I’ll put this review on Twitter for you too!!!

News break is the best app I’ve tried for getting local news. I’ve tried many, but for most of the others, that means news from the nearest large cities. I live in a rural town and finding truly small town local news news online is difficult. Yes, you can go to your newspaper’s site, but that’s just what they cover. News break grabs all three of the very small towns in my community and spoon feeds it to me. That includes special events! There’s one large issue. If you share a story, people have to download the app to read it. Sight unseen, none of my friends has, so I no longer share because they resent being sent an article they have to download an app for. I wouldn’t download it either. Most news sites allow one to go to a link on the web rather than demanding a download. Seems like a much better way to get new subscribers.

This was a terrific app at first. I particularly loved the ability to see local news stories. But the app gives the headlines, and a sentence or two, and then has a READ MORE, and you click that to read the entire article. The articles themselves open from a separate news source, a newspaper etc. The problem is that after 2 weeks of using this app, most of the time when I click the READ MORE link to read an article, most of the news sources it takes me to tell me I’ve maxed out on my number of free articles, and want me to subscribe to read anymore. And we’re not talking about free subscriptions, you have to pay to subscribe. So, though it’s not the fault of the app itself, the app is no longer useful to me since the news source they’re linking to for a given article will no longer let me read their articles. So sadly, I’ll have to delete this app, since all it’s capable of in my case now is teasing me with headlines from articles I can’t read.

I kept seeing this pop up on IG & while I thoroughly enjoy keeping up with my local news & some major stories world wide, I’m a bit disappointed in this app only because when I finally decided to download it after much deliberation & reading reviews, I can no longer continue using it. I selected my location & favorite topics to follow yet I get wayyyyy too many notifications & some are from states that I care nothing about & topics I didn’t choose. I mean I’ve never seen so many notifications. So I decided to get on & decipher through my notifications in case I messed it up or even just to change them but for the life of me I can’t find that option. I find this unfortunate because I rather enjoyed the receiving what I asked to but this is too much. I don’t even have notifications set on social media so to be bombarded with topics I didn’t ask for on this on this outlet is disappointing. Trust me. It’s A LOT! Wow
