BEST APP SINCE THE CREATION OF TIME AND SPACE! I love this app. I dream about this app. It's the app I surf while chillen during my daily bowel movements!... This app has kept me so informed on current events that I am able to hold conversations about any and everything at the office water cooler while shooting the breeze with coworkers. If I were a superhero id be called Newsman and the source of my powers would be this app as the latern is the source of Green Laterns ring. Excuse me as I go reopen the app and charge up my powers. *flies away*

interviews, I had to laugh. If you lean to the extreme right you will love the line up of stations. I was hoping to find a news app with different point views, this is not. I remember when the news outlets had a much higher standard. I don't belong to any political party. I just want the news. Maybe in the future, that will change. It may not, so right now - I will find another source for the news. *Other topics were good CNET ect. Yes I'm aware of line up.
