Nice... Does what it says, kinda. It doesn't keep my news options intact. I get stories that I've opted out of every now and then. Other than that it's pretty good.

The best app for selected breaking news alerts. I really like the way this app allows you to get selective breaking news alerts for topics that interest you. Just what you need and not what you don't. The Whoa! feature is also quite interesting. The interface is smooth and beautiful. Nailed it!

Needs improvement Notifications work fine but when you click on the notification, it never takes you directly to the story. Pity, really.
