Only thing good is being able to put in your own topic. This is the only reason I still have it. Also the news sources are not very good

I previously had an iphone and I have been waiting to be able to get this on my evo. Interface is simple and the content is excellent!

Every few days, it erases everything I am following and I have to re enter all my searches. I hope they fix this bug.

Would be 5 stars if it didn't delete every single 1 of my "follow" stories...

A few kinks in making my personal stay in apps memory after reboot, but this could also be user error

Widget doesn't work, but otherwise good app. Wish there was a customizable headline feed, not just the Featured feed. -Devour

Use it on android and iPad to keep up to date on key topics. Works well on both platforms to give me insights into the 8 most important areas for me.
