  • Lots of Potential - Not ready yet Dec 18, 2020

    By MrAnalogue
    There is a lot of potential for this app and I love their concept but it just feels like Beta right now. Many things don’t work. I’ve experienced several crashes. Lots of spinning balls waiting for content to load. Sometimes it doesn’t load and you have to force quit and start again. iPad is vertical only which is annoying. Favorites category doesn’t work, just spins forever on iPhone and iPad even with 1.01 bug fix update. I also really don’t appreciate they make you sign up with email address AND phone number to actually use the app. Without signing up it’s not really useful at all. There’s no technical reason you would need to sign up, they just want to collect our info. Is that for a future sale of our personal info? They aren’t clear and they do leave that open to possibility on their website. I really cannot recommend this app until they make a lot of updates.
  • Excellent!! A Game changer!! Dec 20, 2020

    By JDE2007
    Gawq is truly the future; it is a gift to humanity; people deserve It!! For too long, we have been victims of major news networks attempting to control our thinking. They have told us what to think, how to vote, what is truth and what is false; pushing their agendas and biased views on us. However, Gawq offers people the necessary tools to fight back and challenge fake and bias news (on both sides of the aisle). With the many Gawq features (filters, and fact checks, and ratings, and reviews), an individual has the tools not only to challenge news channels but actual journalists writing these false or biased articles. Truth is power, and Gawq gives us the tools and resources to seek and find that TRUTH!! Thank you, Gawq!!
  • Finally, algorithm free news. Dec 21, 2020

    By Valiant_Victors
    I love that this app lets you view stories by “most covered.” Rather than relying on an algorithm that serves up news you want to see, Gawq lets me read the news that’s actually happening in the world, even if I don’t agree with it. I’ve been really struggling to find a news app that I can use daily and trust to give me the full picture. I love that Gawq lets you read news with a reader mode too, so I’m not always jumping in and out of the app. Also being able to sort out paid news sources is great so I’m not always getting blocked by paywalls. Really great experience - super excited to see where everything goes!
  • I needed this - thank you! Jan 30, 2021

    By His word is true
    Finally, a news app that gives me access to all the news I want. In my business, I need accurate and timely news from all sorts of perspectives. In this age of carefully curated news offerings that are designed to divide and sensationalize rather than inform or unite we need an app like this. I am getting a more holistic view from a greater variety of sources than ever before. And I love being able to rate headlines that are misleading. So much better than any of my other news apps or trying to get my news from social media. I can’t wait to see what you add next.
  • Amazing App!!! Dec 20, 2020

    By Melissa R. E.
    This app is a dream come true!!! Watching or following a specific news source can be dangerous and make you misinformed and biased. Trying to toggle between even just two news sources can be overwhelming and exhausting. Therefore, Gawq is truly a dream come true!!! I have been searching for a way to GET TO THE FACTS, and Gawq is the engine that drives me right there!!! Even in it’s genesis, it is fantastic!!! I am expecting great things from this app!!!
  • Maybe but not yet Feb 15, 2021

    Another news app that collaborates multiple sources into one tidy place. I need this app (or another like it) to work, but it’s not there yet. I’ve used similar apps (News Break) that were full of junk like promotional links every other headline. This one does a good job of filtering out the junk, but it has some issues... You can’t mute topics (even though there is a muted topics section under “content controls”). You can only mute sources. I don’t want to mute everything from Newsweek (although maybe I should) but I do want to mute everything about Lindsay Lohan. Local or regional news is absent. The “My Activity” section can’t be altered. In a privacy obsessed world, this seems like a major oversight. Still, I’m holding onto hope with this one. I anticipate that after a few improvement updates it will become my go to news app. Oh, did I forget to mention the good? Give it a try; I think you’ll think it was worth it.
  • Excellent Intentions, Great Execution Dec 20, 2020

    By kferg81
    I really respect the ideals of Gawq as they’ve outlined in their manifesto. Integrity in journalism, while by no means a new concept, has been greatly warped and ignored in the interest of preaching to the choir and generating clickbait. I also utilize their filters quite a bit, and I look forward to leaving thoughts and reviews on what I’ve read. Definitely a breath of fresh air!
  • Great app for News Lovers. Jan 17, 2021

    By kristarose95
    I enjoy being able to sort and filter the headlines (i.e. no opinion pieces, no pop culture). The interface is very minimalistic-in a good way. No distracting fluff, no pointless notifications (but notifications for big Breaking News are included on Gawk). This app is excellent. I will continue to use it daily!
  • Great app!! Dec 22, 2020

    By jwinters2020
    I love the interface of this app it is so simple and easy to use. Being able to compare so many various sources side by side would take forever before this app. It is great to be able to fact check for yourself and to know the content isn’t being manipulated!!
  • This is awesome! Dec 22, 2020

    By cigarguy512
    I absolutely love Gawq! This app is easy to navigate and I really value the ability to customize and filter out the news I don’t wish to read. It’s been difficult to find a platform that provides unbiased news updates. Glad I downloaded GAWQ.

  • Good app May 1, 2021

    By Nisha😏
    UPDATE 5/1: The app is completely useless since new update 😭… I really like this app! On my headlines tab it is repeating the articles over. UPDATE when you’re on the following tab and click on 1 of the subjects it crashes the app and take by back to my Home Screen
  • Update May 5, 2021

    By CaylinMC
    Let a review saying that the app was crashing. Installed the update meant to fix it and now I can’t access the app at all. It always says I’m offline. Can’t even see the headlines let alone read the articles. Please update again!

    I like the app but it keeps kicking me off when I try to look at any of my ‘Following’ subjects. As soon as I click on any one of them, the app closes. Okay, the app kicked me off when I clicked on a story I wanted to read. Deleted it.

  • Just what I needed Dec 22, 2020

    By Texanboots
    As a news junkie I wake up in the middle of the night and go from app to app in shock. This is a junkies dream. Hats off. Now I know it’s legit I’m thinking about erasing them all and being an official Gawker. I might keep one or two as it’s only been a week but almost sold.
  • Found my new source for news Feb 22, 2021

    By m2gris
    Since quitting twitter had been looking for a site that just gives me the facts and no slant based on what I’d looked at before. Absolutely love the site. Love the variety of sources and the way I can filter (or not) what interests me.

  • Updating review! Feb 21, 2021

    By Jeff4234
    App said I was offline and does not show any news, but has been corrected. I love the idea of unfiltered news with no sales articles or tough to avoid news+. Wish I could filter for words, like , never show any articles with certain words. So far so good.
  • Almost at 5. May 13, 2021

    By dtbrouillette
    The reason why I gave it a 4 out of 5 is because I would love to have Gawq available on a laptop or an iPas. That is how much I love this app. It’s the only news source I use.
