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.

    Pretty good

    I got this because Taptu has not been working. I am still getting used to it. But, it is a great app. Finds news and gives it to you.

    Gr8

    I normally can't stand the news but with this FREE app I get to pick and choose which subjects I want to read about... therefore it sifts through all the stuff I am not interested in. I personally have not been able to get the "read to me" feature to work but I may just be doing something wrong.

    Must buy

    Great app. Constant updates with the latest news. Stories are organized well into many catergories. Great way to hear about some more off-the-wall, or "back page" news stories you wouldn't hear about through traditional news oulets. Just wish they had a section for local news, or even state news......

    Fun way to get the news

    Skim the categories, pick what you want, read or have it read to you (great when tired). Good choices, good stories, great way to get the "creme de la creme"of the news. And I love the little hog alert when news is updated.

    Well configured and operates well on the Nook Color, which is not the case with many apps.

    Like it!

    Easy to navigate and select the content you want. Wish they would pull more stories from Reuters/AP. Also still trying to figure out how to get local content to show. Otherwise an excellent news service & I hope I can get it on the new nook hd+.

    Great way to grab the news!

    I really like how you can update your categories and read them later w/o wifi. Extra plus for those of us sworn off cable and satellite tv.
