Only news app I use. I deleted all my other news apps because this has the same news sources in one place.

Best but lacks local contents! Arguably the best news app yet. Zero loading feature actually works and is must for India where EDGE service is offered in the name of 3G. It'll be great if country specific content could be offered which right now only available for US and Japan. Hope you add India soon.

Terrylyn Android Note 4 I enjoy reading "Smart News" due alot too the writers of the stories. Why? Because, the wording is put into context of an everyday person who graduated college 30 yrs ago. Not, as if I graduated from an Ivy League College a year ago. •• The stories may be 1st hand coverage with a trifle bit of info, but the story always will continue with full coverage at some later point. •• I also enjoy how I have important, 1st hand/ immediate news pop up on my screen in a tiny box. I have the choice too read or dismiss.
