Reviews From google play store

This is a refreshingly wonderful useful app that I have been enjoying almost every day since I found it. Other similar apps like this as well as other browser news feeds either are chock full of obtrusive ads or they don't update their news articles, showing a huge number of articles that are more than 8 months old. This one is the best in my opinion.

this is a good app to have especially when you are on the go. I myself am not a news reader per say but this app saves me on money on a subscription to the post and currier, however I feel that there should be a local section, and a metro too in case that you want to catch up with the news in your area

Smart News: good news feed, up to date, easy to navigate. UPDATE: Since the latest app revision, unfortunately, they appear to have less channels/categories, dropping some of my favorites including The Hill. A shame, really. SMART NEWS, in settings, you need to offer ALL the categories. Right now, significantly less than i used to have before my Smart News app crashed and I had to reinstall. When it came back up, much less of a robust app. Lowered my rating from 5 to 3.

The commercials say they want news from both sides, yet there are no conservative news outlets at all. gave it a second try...still filled with be biased news. Can only get conservative views if you actively add it... otherwise the app runs Vanity Fair and CNN 😂😂😂 (fake news) at top of your feed.

I downloaded this app since it is advertised as balanced and fair news. Nothing could be further from the truth. The algorithm that pulls the stories should pull automatically from both left and right wing media, not this one! Why are all media outlets left wing agenda driven? Truly scary. The same totally biased left wing media we get everywhere. I am deleting the app, don't be duped by this fake biased news!!!

I love it! Despite the moronic commercial, if you're already a reading or news junkee, you can flip through the best topics and add your favorite websites to the tabs. The interface is really easy. This makes research, quotes, and the latest breaking news really easy to access. Highly recommend! Fast, not buggy. No lag - "smart" or "web" option on every article. 5 Stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

SmartNews consistely publishes timely reports of the most current news. US politics articles includes far left and right views even if there is little real evidence to support the author's views. The topics tabs are a nice feature of this app.

I recently got a new phone. smartnews was already installed. I read the articles when they pop up. I'm far from being a liberal. I'm a full blown conservative, however, I do listen to both sides of all kinds of arguments and then come to my own conclusion. I can't honestly say that I've read any article that has upset me so much that I would never read anything here again. It was actually quite refreshing. I just want the news, not partial news, not opinion news and not biased news. Good job!

Still totally left leaning bias, and lots of fake news. (my response to your response) The fact that I have to choose news feeds with Conservative views and all other popular viewpoints automatically propegate to home page, proves my point.

So far I'm liking this news app's format much better than Flipboard. I'd give it 5 stars if there was a way to eliminate the provided news feeds that I dont care about. Edit 4/20/19: Upgraded to 5 stars because of your response and concern. I do like hearing all sides of a discussion, but there are some topics I'd like to skip entirely. Waste of my limited time and all that. Oh, well.

i particulary like your speed; how DO you put an article on my screen faster than the source would? i also like your selecting articles from many sources but please let me block sources that i never want to see. i don't want to wade through pure propaganda and phony exposè pieces in search of real news.

Pretty good app, haven't tried others, but I haven't felt the need to. Opens to tabbed categories, Top, World, U.S., and you can add more predefined, with each providing an aggregate of articles from a large variety of sources. That might be upsetting sometimes, but I like to see every perspective. It doesn't filter any sources(maybe just the worst) so you get from all sides of the divide. But you can add tabs for most sites, like WIRED, Futurism, even MIT review, whatever your interest.

"Breaking News" seems deceptive when you end up with a bunch of articles about things you can find on Amazon? And those aren't the ads either. I gave up FlipBoard for this. Might still be in the market for a decent news aggregator that remains more independent on sampling actual news articles.

I really wish it was unbiased news source. I like to read the news from the left and the right and can draw my conclusions based on the competing narratives for each story who is actually reporting that story and who is fudging the facts a bit. This app gives left sided news. They include a Fox news article sometimes to claim unbiased but it's usually just a non story. The news is usually left which is ok, just dont claim unbiasedness. Smartnews for left slant, Drudge for my right slant.

Very liberal articles, a lot of opinionated news. Sports articles are decent. it would be more relevant if users could rate misleading headlines and untrue stories. But I seem to think, any way of of responsible reporting, with readers input as gone to the wayside. and force feeding agendas are the new norms for a brainwashing minds.

Clickbait Extraordinaire So called "Top News" is about 60% clickbait articles from random websites with catchy headlines and really worthless content. Then there is real news... okay. But a lot of it is stale and out of date. It is much better to keep up with real journalism... BBC, NYT, WaPo, Guardian, etc.

Today the Mueller Report was released. You claim to be politically unbiased, yet I could not find one article under Politics that was unbiased against the President! Nothing but how the Trump haters were now going to "get" him... the spin was so pathetic it was laughable! Since you (Smart News) don't "write" the news, I figure you're supposed to present both sides from a neutral position... you don't! In your defense, perhaps, it must be hard to find anything but biased "fake news" to post!

I installed this app because it claims in its ads it is neutral. After few days of reading, I realized it is neutral as long as you are left. I don't know why voicing the other half of population is so hard. Uninstaller now.

I enjoyed most stories but it's very slanted to the left. I'm not. Sifting through the bs got tiresome. I'd like it more if there was some political balance here. We're all people with different beliefs. Respect each other! Since this app caters to only one political belief I'm deleting. I did enjoy the dog stories. 🐶

VERY informative, breaking news is Timely and most times ahead of the wave, it also has a wide variety of topics. I use it frequently during the day, and have no qualms whatsoever about giving it a 5-star rating!
