All the papers mags and journals I read, or would like to say that I read, or at least read the headlines...easy to arrange the ones you want. I have smithsonian, natl geo, time, npr,the nation,discover, nytimes, international news, bbc...Even found my local paper . Had no problem getting "the complete story" to load. It just took a full second and a half to do so. Big deal! Its loading a full newstory from a different online source and formatting it to your screen! Beautiful graphics, easy to understand format, free!

Great format, poor content selection

I don't understand their selection algorithms. You're as likely to get political diatribes as actual news or analysis in the "Top 25" selections, even in science and tech feeds. Overwhelming extreme liberal bias in the selected "news" stories. This is a great service...

Overwhelming extreme liberal bias in the selected "news" stories. This is a great service if you're a raging fan of Nancy Pelosi or Janeane Garafalo but horrible if you have more than 2 functional brain cells.

    A Little Thin on Intuitiveness

    Seems pretty descent so far, but it's a little difficult to figure out some of the clock features.

    It'd be nice to be able to select different alarm sounds; I may not have figured that out yet.

    Enjoyed

    Love the news feeds and the multiple options. My only real complaint is that some of the news sources have been filed under odd headings such as food, making it difficult to keep track of them. I'd like that glitch to be fixed.

    Awesome App

    I REALLY LOVE THIS APP. All of my favorite news sources right at my finger tips! The only problem is I do not know if all if the news sources are free.
