User reviews of NewsHog: News & Weather
Works very well with the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight (hacked to tablet). This app is scary good and highly recommended.

Meh. Ok as another news source but not as user friendly, intuitive or customizable as I'd like. Widget is a waste of time. News alerts are totally random topics & not actually breaking news.

One boatload of ugly Some of the publications I've seen are written with bad English like a "me too" Muslim Stinkypoo Times (do we need those? ) , ADVERTISEMENTS seem to keep smacking you in the head like a prize fighter boxer, and godamn SUMMARY FOLLOWED BY SUMMARY junkola gibberish that say almost none of the real content of many of the articles,and with bad grammar. Now you monetizers should never get more than 10 cents for the paid app from any of us for your robot written articles repeating all day so far. End the bs.

Mad I'm unhappy with you. Your news is great. Your adds stink. I just had an add pop up and tell me that my phone had a virus. I know better as I have software to deal with such things. You want me to put my review back up to where it should be. Drop the add!
