One of the very best news apps. I prefer reading the news to watching it--this app allows both, and does both well. The widget provides constantly updating headlines when other apps, like the New York Times, have totally abandoned their iOS headline widgets. You can read top stories, including excellent coverage of issues of specific importance to LGBTQ and ethnic minority communities, watch video clips or the entire NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt. Richard Engel's coverage of international news, especially Syria and Ukraine, is unparalleled. There are ads, but they're not intrusive at all, unlike so many other news sites and apps that have become unusable, and there's no paywall. In this era of fake news and alternative facts, this app is a bastion of quality journalism.
If you’re on the fence about this app, look at how consistent the developers are at responding to each of our technical complaints. They addressed my issue. As far as ads go, it’s a free app offered by commercial network channel. Someone has to pay for it. I’d rather read, listen to, or watch ads while on the app than sacrifice my personal device’s autonomy when I’m off the app. Here’s my previous review: Was among my favorite news apps until today. They now force users to accept notifications. That’s ridiculous. Hate to see it go but it’s deleted now. I’ll revisit in the future - hoping they see the light. Because I will miss it. But not enough to accept nonsensical notifications.
