Awesome App

I'm a news junkie and this app is the greatest. Can tailor the news stories and subjects you are most interested in. Highly recommend, works flawlessly on nook HD

The app is a great idea with some rather critical flaws. It ideally, after a week or two of daily use, presents users with a customized set of news articles and blog entries. These articles are organized by topic keywords. This would all be great if it worked well, but the available set of topics frequently isn't broad enough (i.e. "virology" isn't an available topic but every major celebrity's name is). The news feed itself frequently contains totally irrelevant stories from personal blogs or hyperlocal news sites. There's a "Local News" option but it doesn't solve these problems; its local news coverage area appears to be roughly 200 square miles. Overall, News360 either needs many more customization options or far fewer before it can offer a truly streamlined news-reading experience.

    Conservative drivel parading as news mixed in

    The format is attractive but there is an alarming number of conservative blogs and obscure "newspapers" mixed in expressing the loony teabagger worldview. Serious looking app but an aganda that only a southern survivalist could love.

    Great news app.  Brings lots of news sources from around the world, not just US stories.  It would be even better if it did not spontaneously relaunch so frequently.
