Stumbled upon SmartNews over a year ago - have tried multiple news conglomerate apps (Apple, Google, AP, Reuter’s, etc...) and really really like SmartNews. Despite other reviews proclaiming SmartNews satisfying their particular political leaning news sources, I’ve found a well curated mixture of news from all political points of view from domestic and international sources. Absolutely my #1 most used app. Highly recommend.

The most recent update forces a full screen ad which cannot be canceled for many seconds. At first I thought there was something wrong with my phone and rebooted. I enjoyed this app for many years but I am now looking to replace it because of this issue.

The commercials they ran made it appear as if they were 50/50, rather they just reflect the same Liberal bias in the MSM. They run 90% anti-Trump articles and their algorithm is out of control Leftist as a result. Too bad.

1. You should expose a suggestion link in app where users can log suggestions. 2. When app first starts up there’s a moment when I see a fantastic headline. I hadn’t read it before but then it’s blown away all of sudden as feeds refresh. There’s a couple of ways to handle this - perhaps simplest in ux is to show the blue drop down forcing user to press the button. There’s pros and cons. You could have a switch to enable auto refresh.... Or have a timer rotate ticking down saying auto refresh in 5-4-3-2-1 and have ability to cancel. Or show a link to older /cached previous news - (use metrics to track how many ppl click.) This is only applicable to when app first starts up. or more complicated way - introduce a way to time machine back in timeline / dates. This could be fun to explore. Eg. Like go to last weeks news.
