Fox News is propaganda and The Province is a trash tabloid that doesn’t report facts. This is NOT smart news.

4 star

What’s great: -Smart View allows much faster loading -Lots of variety and personalized choices Not great: -Recent change returns you to the feed, not the article you were reading after you switch apps (even briefly). Would be 5 stars if returned. -No keyword search, but that’s not critical for browsing.

This is the best app available for news from Japan both in Japanese and English. Just select Japan as your region and customize it as you wish. Very easy to use!

This app is very biased. If I read another fake news article it’s deleted.

Turned it off in settings, but it still plays and is messy.

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.
