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.

    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.

    New to news apps but I'm in love

    This app is killer. The only slight inconvenience I see is it doesn't have a google plus share button on the app. I think you can share stories but have to leave the app and go to the full site. You have to have an internet connection for that. Its great not needing the internet to get news stories. And these news articles are straight from Zueses lightening bolt. They are fresh off the international press. The stories they find are really the hottest of the hot. You would be hard pressed to find such good news content anywhere else. They have tons of topics. I just stick with technology, business, science and popular.

    Ridiculous photos

    News items appear with adjacent phtos that often have nothing to do with the story, or are absurd like the photo of a duck next to a story about a person. This version now has advertising at the bottom. Get the Drudge report if you want more text in the summary page and accurate photos in the selected body of the story.

    No X-rated Filter

    I do like this app. It keeps me in the know. I wish I could filter local news to get just my state. Unfortunately, yesterday one of the margin pics was of a naked female showing her lower female anatomy in its full glory. Hence, I am no longer able to recommend this app, especially for Christian homes or homes where children might access the app. Too bad!

    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.

    Great News App

    Concise, capsulized, and non-biased news reporting. I can scan all pertinent categories and articles in minutes, and be up to date or drill down for details.

    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......
