Calling out all the news Ninjas out there!

If there is any example of technological advancement, this is it. It gathers the news from all the possible sources. I can go through the news in a super-fast way, and when I am tired, which I am more than what you would think, it can read the news to me. I mean this is awesome, it does everything for me as for as news are concerned. I am just waiting for the day when it will also do grocery for me. So that I don't have to do it for my wife.
But jokes aside this is a fine app I have it on my android captivate mobile phone, galaxy phone and nook. Look and feel of this app is great. It runs smoothly on all the devices. Ability to share the news, read the news, let it read the news to me, save the news for later read in one place a real bonus.

Great Job developer, one more reason for me to make Nook a part of my everyday life.

Best newsreader for Nook so far, but needs work. Refresh button doesn't refresh all tabs, it waits to refresh when you select the tab. It doesn't refresh immediately, but refreshes when you are reading headlines and looses your place. Kills my battery even when refresh is set to 12 hours. Can't link to your Google news topics.

    T

    I don' t understand. I know I use my nook alot during weekends and when I'm sick or on a holiday break, but I have 48% battery left and it goes all the way down to 20%?!!! (That is not meant to be a cuss word, by the way.) I saw the reviews,abd a few people said it eats up their battery life! I'm getting quite suspicious, seeing about every 5 minutes that a little pig with glasses THAT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE THE NEWSHOG LOGO pop up saying new articles found! By the way, 3.25 stars.

    Good, quick peek @ the headlines

    But, come on, how hard is it to have embedded photos that actually have something to do with the story, or even to include enough of the text to determine what the actual story is about?
    These small errors just reflect a lack of commitment to giving 100% of the attention to the product. It's a shame when 85% is delivered, when the remaining 15% would be fairly straightforward...

    Better than nothing.

    Slow to update. News not always current. Have not had an update in four days. No really good aggregators for the Nook Color. Newshog is okay, just.

    So so.

    Mostly liberal slanted news. For well balanced exposure you'll still need to read other sources.

    Not a bad little app!

    I use this app occasionally, not daily. It has some interesting categories, but can be a bit overwhelming. Not bad overall!
