  1. guest-avatar

    It used to be great but not any more. Now it's useless.

  2. guest-avatar

    Good news app. Easy to navigate, search and add categories to.

  3. guest-avatar

    Looks like it's been shut down. Not sure why it's still available for download.

  4. guest-avatar

    Simply is simply the best news aggragating app I've found & I tried several. Thanks, devs!

  5. guest-avatar

    Nice app add other countries.... also add India (BHARATH) and more countries.. update can opt more countries at one tap..

  6. guest-avatar

    App has no content. Must have been shut down.

  7. guest-avatar

    App does not work. Uninstalled. Waste of time.

  8. guest-avatar

    Very limited, further reading often not related to article

  9. guest-avatar

    Saturated: most top ranked articles are NYT which is a pay site. Uninstalling.

  10. guest-avatar

    every other article is a pay site, wont let you opt out

  11. guest-avatar

    clear and concise

  12. guest-avatar

    it will take time to get use to this unusal presentation

  13. guest-avatar

    to many fee-based articles from NYT

  14. guest-avatar

    Good app while it lasted. Now dead. Original review: Been looking for a news app that lets me browse headlines quickly like the Yahoo news app, but doesn't load articles into an external browser. This one almost meets my needs. I must page through headlines but this deficiency is offset by a useful article summary on each page, which helps to decide to read more. My only gripe concerns categories. Only 2 of them interest me. Update: saved searches can work in lieu of categories.

  15. guest-avatar

    I like the app better than many other similar ones that I have tried. But just as many others have said, what is the point of using it if most news sources require a paid subscription after opening a few articles and you can't exclude then from the feed?

  16. guest-avatar

    This app used to be okay but has really gone downhill. Lots of Guardian, HuffPost, Evening Standard (which isn't formatted correctly). Just another tedious left-wing propaganda outlet. Has said 'Simply Server offline' for 2 days so I've finally deleted the app.

  17. guest-avatar

    Horrible. Biased. Any news app that consistently shows articles from Pop Sugar under its Politics category isn't serious. Also presents all the usual biased media outlets articles and provides no way to adjust sources.

  18. guest-avatar

    Like this news app but have to take a star away with it's latest update because it forces an ad for it's own Notify app at the top of my list of categories with no option to move it or remove it. Lame.

  19. guest-avatar

    I like the unique concept of a stack of sources for the same story. However, after using Simply for quite a while now, I have come to dislike this app despite the novel interface. There just isn't enough content (5-8 articles per section) and almost all articles are from the same few sources. If you are looking for straight news and aren't actively seeking those sources' ideological agenda echo chamber, you are going to be turned off by the constant stream of attack-style headlines. If there were a better mix of sources and more stories to choose from, maybe this wouldn't be quite as disqualifying.

  20. guest-avatar

    Comprehensive News. Most of the major news outlets will not let you read full article even with annoying recurring message to swipe down to read full article. Please get rid of the annoying swipe down time when getting app is enough. Thank you.

  21. guest-avatar

    StormySky Stalker


    Great app hands down one of best news apps out there i get both my local news and national news. Please add a alert for breaking news and a health section to categories.

  22. guest-avatar

    I installed it several times but the app is totally empty now without any content. Is it still maintained at all?

  23. guest-avatar

    Syed Mohammad Kazim


    Excellent. one of the best app. Not seen better than this. But please add some asian news papers. And also from middle eastern source.thanks

  24. guest-avatar

    It's so so. Some stories are interesting, others I couldn't care less. When looking for stories in certain cities, I get stories from other cities that have nothing to do with the one I want.

  25. guest-avatar

    Alastair Richards


    US centric! Appears fine if you just want US News, but what about the rest of the world?

  26. guest-avatar's a simple way to have news brief. customizable and doesn't take all the screen. great !

  27. guest-avatar

    Sometimes the meaning of the source text gets lost by the platforms shorting mechanism.

  28. guest-avatar

    Very clean format with an interesting mix of news articles. This app works great on my small screen Jelly Pro!

  29. guest-avatar

    Only been using this app for about 2 weeks. So far so good. I like the variety of the news presented.

  30. guest-avatar

    Really sad that this app has been discontinued, it was one of the best ☹️

  31. guest-avatar

    it isn't all that great hardly ever use it now

  32. guest-avatar

    Each article get straight to the point. I know what's going on in the world with just a quick glance.

  33. guest-avatar

    I was looking for a replacement for the Yahoo News Digest and this is the one! The UK version is excellent.

  34. guest-avatar

    My favorite news app, I wish the widget had an option to change transparency

  35. guest-avatar

    Too many popups! Crashes.

  36. guest-avatar

    Fantastic news app easy to use and understand we'll done to the maker's.

  37. guest-avatar

    Seems to work pretty well, decent selection of news, with sources from the UK.

  38. guest-avatar

    Best news app I found on the Play Store, hands doywn...

  39. guest-avatar

    Just started using it..the layout n style seems pretty good

  40. guest-avatar

    Way too many ads

  41. guest-avatar

    Better than most news apps. Great format.

  42. guest-avatar

    Trying it for the first time.

    Abreast with the time with a grasp to the news. Excellent!

  44. guest-avatar

    Best news briefing app available.

  46. guest-avatar

    Daniel Leon Sr.


    Good news..lll

  48. guest-avatar

    good summary

  49. guest-avatar


  50. guest-avatar

    I like my news. I like a well rounded offering of news in an organized fashion. This app gives me most of that, except with a twist that's a pain in the neck. Holding down a finger on the story so I can get an icon which allows me to read all of it.

  51. guest-avatar

    Downloaded this news app because Yahoo pulled the plug on their News Digest app (after they were bought by Verizon). This is as good as that one and maybe better. Best for people who are looking for a finite number of news.

  52. guest-avatar

    High quality photo journalism with HD level images and an array of news subcategories. The range of planning , development and design​ innovation to create this app is clearly demonstrated. All features are easy to access. The information contained in news events is constantly updated for each category listed. This app is an ideal choice for fast, accurate digital news

  53. guest-avatar

    This App does exactly what I want, except you end up needing to subscribe to news publications. Most of the "alternative sources" are pay sources, and if they're not, many times the alternayr source stories aren't the same story and only tamngentially related to the main article. The app itself has lots of adds, which is fine. But there should be a way for the developer to offer an upgrade at a $$ they can use to pay the sources (i.e. all Time publications, the Post etc.)

  54. guest-avatar

    Looks Pretty; Terrible Functionality = Big Time-waster. This app tries to be another Flipboard with its animated page flips etc. But UX design here is Simply Terrible. A story says "1 of 10 pages"--- but try to get to page 2. You can't. Slide and you go to Next Story. Tap -- and page flips back to app-home. Double tap and go nowhere. Long press and get icons. App shows multiple sources-- a good thing. But try to get to any other source. Just try it. The app notes tells you so eloquently about how they use technology, but it's in the background to make news front & center. Wrong: Most impt thing to this team is "cool animated flips". Which are waaaaaaay too slow and become quickly irritating. No "settings" to control that speed. Summary: An app that looked great, but doesnt understand information design.

  55. guest-avatar

    A very slick interface combines with great news sources. Things I'd like to see in future releases would be the ability to arrange categories, and a web link to the full article or videos.

  56. guest-avatar

    Very cool app! I would only like to have the option to choose more than one country simultaneously.

  57. guest-avatar

    Non-intrusive, no spam & you can also enter keywords to search. Most news seems non-biased except for NYT.

  58. guest-avatar

    Not bad, could be better. Didn't give more stars as when I searched for articles on Manchester city, none came up, only Manchester united, so I deleted.

  59. guest-avatar

    So far nicely done could use text resizing and some red feeds should be able to accept

  60. guest-avatar

    I find this app extremely useful, informative and interesting. I like how you can go into details and retrieve more information. I recommend this to anyone.

  61. guest-avatar

    Lawrence Steinheuer-Turner


    Good app. Could do with a few more categories, specifically technology. Like that it condenses pages for basic info but can expand out to full news article

  62. guest-avatar

    Get rid of the L.A. Times articles. Their ad Hijacks content when clicked.

  63. guest-avatar

    Abdoulaye THIAM


    Very careful selection of breaking news. Very good analyses of events.

  64. guest-avatar

    la raza is ignorance


    Not enough selection of honest facts

  65. guest-avatar

    I find it to be loaded with liberal media. I use it to see who lies the most.

  66. guest-avatar

    Good but ads can be annoying when trying to read news story

  67. guest-avatar

    Jeanette Alexander


    Can't get the reading of the stupid thing ,just goes back up top!

  68. guest-avatar

    Very good. Clear, concise and easy to navigate. Choose your own topics is a plus for me😊😊😊😊😊

  69. guest-avatar

    Non editable source, only category options

  70. guest-avatar

    It's interface is very innovative and pleasing.

  71. guest-avatar

    Just installed. Would be nice to have a dark theme

  72. guest-avatar

    Best news app I have ever used.

  75. guest-avatar

    Easy to use. Nice big print. I like it.

  76. guest-avatar

    Easy to access summaries tailored to the reader's interests

  77. guest-avatar

  90. guest-avatar

    Fun to play with

  91. guest-avatar

    Great app

  92. guest-avatar


  93. guest-avatar

    I use this app every day. It's an easy way to get the gist of what's going on in the world around you. It's nice that you have the ability to either dive into a news item if that's what you're looking for or just skim the front page if that's all that time and/or inclination you have.

  94. guest-avatar

    Another news app that won't allow top stories to be removed. Listen devs... What is top news to you isn't top news to everyone else. Allow users to remove top news and define their own. The search for a fully customisable news app continues. Uninstall.

  95. guest-avatar

    Needs more work and more categories.

  96. guest-avatar

    Entered place for local news. Get loads of stories about the smaller city 45 miles away and nothing from the city I selected where I live!

  97. guest-avatar

    On first loading this up, it so far seems to be a very elegantly designed, simple to use news app, with the default settings already showing me a lot of what I want to see.

  98. guest-avatar

    Headlines arranged by category set up the way you wish. Each gives access to original news source.

  99. guest-avatar

    Still great to see no limits on what to follow though,instead of being limited on topics.

  100. guest-avatar

    Interface is flawless for me and you can make your own categories. I can read the news I want and only the news I want. The layout is the best I've seen.
