Aspire News


Aspire News is a free application which contains summaries of top stories in world, sports, and entertainment news, from the When Georgia Smiled: Robin McGraw Foundation (and powered by Yahoo!).

Additionally, if someone you know is in an abusive relationship—or if that someone is you—the Help Section of the application contains complete resources for victims of domestic violence, as well as a way to get help when you need it.

This app does not serve as a replacement for emergency services—in any situation where you feel that you may be at risk, please dial 911 or your local emergency number.

No recorder Could you tell me where or how to use/find the recording? I need to know this really bad. you have lots of people asking. you should do everyone a favor and elaborate. You don't realize by advertising this, and not telling where or how to use it that you could be the reason for life or death..

Carol James I was in an abusive marriage for 17 years i had no one to help me and i so wish this app had been out then when i needed help. Nobody knows what you go thru ,how hard it is to get out.You have no money no where to go and you don't want to tell anyone about what is going on as it is quiet embarrassing .My Abuse was mental and physical and yes i did get out but it took to long to do it .

Rated as an offset Downloaded just to rate, offsetting the 1 stars for ppl saying they cant find it or that it just has news articles, that's the point. Ppl that say the X should close it, no; if my abuser were coming I can QUICKLY pretend Im just reading world news. I think it also needs to be promoted to teens for child abuse as Im a survivor of SEVERE child abuse & if there were smart phones then, this would have been priceless! I agree the title & icon should be changeable by the user as this can EASILY be figured out
