Zoom I haven't used the app much. So far, the variety of topic and source is great. I can't, however, zoom in on the articles. Please make it so that I can zoom in to better see the text.

Straightforward; unbiased All the other news apps out their are beholden to their masters or at the very least, keeping our eyes on their content. TV station apps, TV network apps, etc. have terrible, clunky UI or focus heavily on ads/sponsors or clickbait. Breaking News is owned by NBC, but you wouldn't know it at all judging by the news sources. It's very unbiased about where what's breaking is coming from. It has become my "go to" voluntary news source as it's typically more context aware than even Google.
