    The app is a great idea with some rather critical flaws. It idea

    The app is a great idea with some rather critical flaws. It ideally, after a week or two of daily use, presents users with a customized set of news articles and blog entries. These articles are organized by topic keywords. This would all be great if it worked well, but the available set of topics frequently isn't broad enough (i.e. "virology" isn't an available topic but every major celebrity's name is). The news feed itself frequently contains totally irrelevant stories from personal blogs or hyperlocal news sites. There's a "Local News" option but it doesn't solve these problems; its local news coverage area appears to be roughly 200 square miles. Overall, News360 either needs many more customization options or far fewer before it can offer a truly streamlined news-reading experience.

    Great Internet News App

    I am enjoying the News360 App every morning with my coffee. I can catch up on news around the world in a few minutes and no newspapers to put in the recycle bin. I like the set-up of the news tiles so you can see a bit of the story and click on it to expand. Great NOOK App

    Conservative drivel parading as news mixed in

    The format is attractive but there is an alarming number of conservative blogs and obscure "newspapers" mixed in expressing the loony teabagger worldview. Serious looking app but an aganda that only a southern survivalist could love.

    Excellent news source for the price

    Considering that it's a free app, this is an excellent news source. You can set it up to prioritize the news topics you're interested in. It's not very strong in sports news, but you'll get the headlines in politics, the economy, etc.

    Good app and idea

    This is definitely worth having on your nook. Whether you are a news junkie or want to look occasionally between books & games. The method of setting up the categories requires a bit of playing around but overall this is a very good app.
