    Get a good laugh at your left sided political views. Still think its entertaining that a human mind could think this way. But is entertaining.

    News are to my taste. The refreshing effect (when the user slide down to refresh) looks disgusting, horrible, unfriendly to trypophobia people. Like suddenly a great many thickly dotted spots bestrewing the screen and dazzling your eyes. Hope to see it improved.

    You always head to the LEFT even when the FACTS do not agree with you. You seem to leave out certain points if they don’t agree with your narrative. Typical MSM!!

    70% of the reported news are from Tehran Washington post and New York Times, most of them unreliable and opinionated news. Too few solid data , e.g. based on The Wall Street Journal. Also omissions on relevant new such as filtering sites in YouTube and google, who just reports facts.
  • Good app!

    When I wake up before I start my day and when I end my day before I shut my eyes, I get my news here! This has been my daily routine for years!
  • Can’t choose local news sources

    When looking at my local news, 90% of the articles are from one very politically biased outlet. A little bit of every perspective is nice, but now I see how parts of the country become fervent supporters of views that are wide on the spectrum - they are inundated with only one perspective. I just want the news, the facts, etc. I wish I could toggle them down somehow...

    The Bing News app on Windows Phone devices was perfect. It was clean, easy, and put reading first, and all the bells and whistles of sharing and social network stuff second. Now it's rebranded or revive-branded to MSN, and available on iOS. 5 stars. UPDATEx1:. Constantly crashes. Not sure why Microsoft broke the app in an update. 1 star review. UPDATEx2: Microsoft pushed out a new update. This was first a 5 star review, then 1 star after a update caused it to crash after viewing a news article. Now it's 4 stars after they fixed it. 4 stars because it took them months to fix it. UPDATEx3:. The crashes are back in Feb 2018. Rating it a 1 again. I cannot read more than 2 news articles before it crashes. UPDATEx4:. Still crashing. However I've found that if I connect my phone to a VPN the crashes stop and I can read article after article. UPDATEx5:. They fixed the crashing issue. Thank you. All is well again. I can read multiple articles again. I like that when I pick one article to read it also prefetches/caches the article before and after that. I utilize that feature for the point in my commute where I enter a tunnel and have no service, but the app gives me 3 articles to read without any cell service. UPDATEx6:. The latest update that came out around July 1, 2018, now includes "sponsored" articles. It's clearly stated but also unwanted. Give me ads instead, or accept purchased ad removal. It also removed the full screen reading view which was one of the most compelling feature over all the other news apps. UPDATE x7: I still haven't updated to the July redisgn. But I did upgrade iOS to 12 and now the full screen reading view for articles (old original app without the fake news ads) is no longer full screen. It has a search bar at the top. Not sure if it's a API the app was using that Apple removed. Still 0 stars review. Bring back what made the original app so great on iOS and originally on Windows Phone.

    Except for the links that click while scrolling, this is a great way to get your news. Would love a paid version!
