Got this for the push notifications, 5 days later and nothing. Uninstall.
No way to pick a topic..or keywords
Requires additional app downlaod. Thumbnails onlyV must open browser for full text.
Too bad that push notifications don't work. Desire 2.2
Every single breaking news of the world , only a click away! Excellent overview! Needs an Improved UI, and integration of news opening direct in app
Localized for USA with NO config options to change anything, this app is next to worthless unless you live in the States. Very disapointing.
An excellent compilation of headlines from many sources. Very useful.
Breaking News? Looks more like kids playing on twitter. No direct links to news item.
