Quartz's new app puts the entire global economy in your pocket.

It's an ongoing conversation about the news, sort of like texting. We'll send you messages, photos, GIFs, and links, and you can decide when you're interested in reading more. Each session lasts just a few minutes, so it's perfect for the train, elevator, grocery store line, or wherever you have a spare moment.

And here's the secret about our little news bot: It's written by humans! Smart journalists who want to keep you informed and entertained.

It's pretty simple. Here are some other features:

• Notifications that are relevant and fun. You decide which alerts to receive, and we won't buzz your phone unless it's really, really important.

• No more news? Relax. We'll give you a quiz or something else to do.

This app is a new way to read the news that's really made for your phone. We hope you like it. Let us know what you think at hi@qz.com. Thanks!

Reviews

This "texting" method of presenting news is slow and cumbersome. If you have lots and lots of time to waste and don't mind being treated like a 10 year old, though, this app might be ideal for you.


Instead of being able to scroll through the news at your own pace like a normal app, you now have to stare at stupid 'text typing' bubbles while the app decides for you what you should look at. #Epic fail


Intriguing experiment. I want to like it more. A true AI would make it better, obviously, e.g., being able to ask specific questions about the news and get meaningful answers instead of only being able to say "anything else?" and a few other canned responses. Also, when multiple text bubbles come they start to scroll off my screen before I can read the top one.


It's like a friend reading you the best parts of a newspaper. You can get further information very easily. It's fun and quick.


I used to give 5 stars but the app no longer works properly (notifications are broken), and it seems to have been dropped by Quartz in favor of 2 other apps, without any deprecation warning nor clear information about what upgrade path the user is meant to follow.


I am always looking for informative news sources. This is not one. I want to choose what I want to read, not be fed what you want me to see and read. Afrer the first minute I was ready to uninstall it.


Not a fan of the new interactive version


I like the chat style delivery.


Well perfect news app for those who are living life fast and loves GIF.....


Absolute love this app. Makes reading the news easy and a lot more fun.


I love it !!!


Love it


Maybe it's not for everyone, but I absolutely love it given my short attention span. I'm 21 but I still feel like a teenager when it comes to wanting to read the newspaper or anything that may seem remotely... Boring.. Even if it's important. This keeps me engaged and they explain everything quickly in about 3 small paragraphs so you are up to date on important current events. I've been looking for an app like this for ages. I also just love the attention to detail even in their emojis 😂 this is a very cute app. I'm surprised it's so free. Thank you!!!!


Really annoying interface that demands constant interaction. No sections or topics, no search, just a text-message-like interface presenting one item at a time. Please let me just browse; I like Quartz, I do NOT like this gimmick. Uninstalling and going back to the web version. (But, thanks for not demanding heaps of permissions. I did notice that and did appreciate it.)


From the first time I tried this app, I knew that it will be very helpful for someone like me who wants to keep updated with the political and business news around the globe but to lazy to find out. Really appreciate the creative idea to get people engage with (imo) boring but important news.


I love this news app. I tend to find staying up on major news stressful but the messenger-style newsfeed is fantastic. I think you're onto an ingenious method of consuming news but don't get too attached to the messenger format (/r/fellowkids). I would love to see more personalization so I can get more stories about Africa.


Surprised me too. If you get kinda stressed by the news this is a good way to read and digest it. My biggest concern is how the articles are picked. No clue! Could be manipulated by money or something. Makes the app seem a little dangerous. For now, it's a helpful way to stay updated.


Tbh, the app surprised me. The conversational format beats so many other news chat bots in the market. A total skeptic at first, I am so sold now. The app is great. I would love enhancements, but without disturbing the app the way it is now.


I just installed it and read many of the reviews, pro and con. News feeds are always useful to me, but the "texting" simulation isn't for me. [I have ZERO social media accounts. I text to people to whom i need to talk.] I'll delete this app and continue to read my main ones: Reuters first, BBC second, pocket* just in case, Accuradio for bebop. Love Reuters, the app and the site. Hard to believe it's free. Economist is excellent for in-depth. Their Espresso app contains not much more than teasers but alerts me to what's good when I go to the local library for the paper issue. [Remember paper? Remember libraries?] I notice your India edition draws complaints. You should work on that. If you're digital, you do NOT want to upset South Asians. :-) I wish you well. *pocket comes with Firefox mobile these days, below the work area. List of stories from news and comment sites, about a quarter of which are worth a look.


Pretty good app Only complaint is there is an annoying delay between clicks...I wish it was more instantaneous. I mean you can click a button and then it would pretend to be like someone is texting you but I really dislike that delay... To get around it I just hit the home button to exit the app and then hit return to app and the article will be posted...saves me a few seconds... I wish there was a setting to disable the delay....
