Just what I was looking for!!! Perfect concept but buggy execution. I use this on an HP Slate 21 in my kitchen and I just want something that streams news like the tv the Slate replaced. There are some bugs that keep me from giving it 5 stars, but all in all, this is a great app. Auto-play can be flaky. It often quits playing and forces me to press play on each clip. Closing the app and relaunching usually fixes this, but not always. This is important to me, so I hope they will fix this. Also it would be nice if there could be a consistent volume in clips. I know this is difficult with all the different providers, but some are barely audible even with the volume turned all the way up and then some are blaring. edit: The auto-play bug has been fixed. Yay!! They have even fixed the volume issues! There is now a consistent volume from each clip making it much easier to watch. No more fiddling with it, just watch it like a regular news broadcast. I love that I get a broad spectrum of news all in one place. I've raised my rating to 4 stars, though I think it is more like 4 1/2 for me. I will definitely give it a 5 star when they add local stations for Wichita, KS and Colorado Springs, CO.

Can't move to SD card and poor content selection I am locked out of moving this to the SD card. That alone is a reason for me to uninstall. The lack of channels makes it not very appealing. I was looking for a replacement for Flipboard, since it is not usable offline. I didn't have an opportunity to see if it works offline.

Watchup: your daily Ad Delivery service Commercial every two or three clips. Often the same one. Just awful.
