I've tried a few other news apps on my Nook Tablet, and after only a few days of using this one, I can honestly say I've never used a more logical, elegant, and intuitive news app. Not only does it offer information based on personal preferences, but provides access to hundreds of related articles to optimize many points of view. And to top it all off, the display is absolutely beautiful. This app is top notch, and definitely recommended to anyone who loves news and information from just about every source...all in one place.

The second problem, the screen layout does not appear to be design for Nook Color. Everything is to large.

I thinkI will stay with Pulse or try something differt.

    Not impressed so far

    Really has one of the worst interfaces I've seen, you have to slide past each story you don't want to read. Even just one story per line would be better than this.

    I much prefer the Pulse News Reader, even though it's very limeted in the number of newsfeeds you can enter into it.

    Not great.

    Loved the idea. Unfortunately mine didn't want to work easily. The only way to customize the article feed is by reading articles. I like the feature that reading something on a topic brings more of that topic, but I Do Not like the inability to just add my topics of interest off a list or something. It means it takes longer to get articles you'd have interest in as you have to actually find articles to read in the topic.

    Also. I added my facebook info and it did not register my having read anything so no personalized topics showed up for me. Even after reading articles within the app for two hours, I still had not one personalized topic.

    I have had Taptu on my Nook since I got it as well as my phone and find that this app brings only one benefit unavailable on Taptu. That being the ability to save an article for offline reading. I do hope Taptu gets that feature. I would say the personalized topics is also a unique feature here, except that feature didn't work for me.

    I am sticking with Taptu which is more customizable.

    Good App but News Hog is better

    Does a good job of delivering "Headline News"

    There really isn't much to say, its a news aggregator. But, I think "News Hog" and "Pulse News" do a better job.

    Nice alternative to CNN and NBC but cludgey interface

    This is a nice app that gathers news from many sources and provides a quick rad for most. But the interface is not user friendly. The swipe to change pages must be completed at the top of the picture or you find yourself in the story.
