  • US version is a Heavy liberal/democratic slant of news, HOWEVER the International version is not Apr 15, 2020

    By Redsilas
    I hated the US version. When I found out I could choose International version the ‘news’ went from 90% negative overall and downright nasty Trump articles to honest regular World news. Seriously they had negative Trump articles under the ‘Entertainment’ and ‘World’ tabs. It was ‘Trump is bad’ for almost every single tab and most of the articles featured. After switching to International - Finally decent reporting. At first I blamed SmartNews for picking biased news and then I realized the issue was the US news aggregators instead. The International version draws in British, Irish, European, and mainly Australian sources. The only biased US news is from The Guardian (expected) but otherwise good reporting/articles. When I open the World tab it truly is World reporting. This is my review of the US version and I originally gave this app 2 stars: About 90% of the ‘news’ choices are left leaning or heavily liberal news outlets. This should be renamed the ‘I hate Donald Trump’ news app because hats what it is. The world news is a joke too. I expected news from France24 or reports on Brexit or about the Hong Kong protests. But nope, they manage to find anti-Trump news and throw it in world news too. Much is from Buzzfeed and Vox too.

  • Smart News is really smart May 30, 2018

    By ediemillerangelo
    I was apparently one of the first regular user of the app and shared articles on Twitter constantly. 3 or 4 of the developers asked me for an interview via Skype and what Interested ME, was that they were all very young and what interested THEM was WHY I was so interested in the news. An earlier reviewer cited being fed too much liberal news and she should be happy with the addition of NEWSMAX which is definitely right leaning. Early on the developers said the algorithms choose the articles in your feed by the articles you actually read and your interest profile is just algorithms doing what they do but you have the option to choose a tab and read any article from any of the magazine you have added. I asked them to please keep it that was and not to start choosing ( as Facebook does ) articles to put forth an agenda, especially not a political agenda. So far I don’t see it happening. I have pretty eclectic interests and really enjoy the variety I have to choose from. This app also gives you the ability to swipe over to Reader View and read the articles without the annoying advertisements. All in all I hardly use any of my other news apps. I am afraid to count how many tabs I have on my home page! Love it!!

  • Love!!! Aug 28, 2020

    By ColeyDets
    I love reading the news - but I hate news with an agenda. Before SmartNews, I had my local Fox News app, which is about as non-bipartisan as you can get. The reason I love SmartNews is because it gives me ALL the news...all sides, from literally all media outlets. I can go to the local tab (includes everything from the local Fox plus much more) or see what’s happening in our government, or the world, or to look at funny memes and animal pic compilations. I love how it’s not all doom-and-gloom news, they include the feel-good news, too! It’s amazing!!! I would highly recommend this app to anyone, 10-stars, big thumbs up 👍👍👍👍👍👍 P.S. I LOVE the recently read feature!!! 👏👏👏 Edit: I looked over some other reviewers and I’m completely floored that people would say this app has an agenda!! Every article is from its original source, so it’s clear where the article came from. If you get triggered by one side or the other, then go into your settings and adjust the scale so that you get what you want 🙂👍

  • A couple bugs and a suggestion Sep 20, 2020

    By tmanokc
    I recently reset my iPad’s settings and content, and upon reinstalling SmartNews, the app’s notifications won’t push anymore. It misses the scheduled update notification times and doesn’t display breaking news notifications. Stories aren’t even being put in the inbox. Also, for a long time, some stories featured on the app are unable to display the full article text in “smart mode”, either omitting paragraphs or not being parsed at all or correctly to display the complete text featured in the original source page. Oddly, the notifications were still working properly when I upgraded my iPad from iPadOS 13.7 to 14.0 after the latter OS was released, with the most recent SmartNews update installed. Also, I’d like to suggest changes to the weather page to include a summary of the current weather observations (adding dew point, wind, barometric pressure, “feels like” temperature, visibility and humidity, along with sky conditions and air temperature). The current format of putting just the current temperature and sky conditions in the hourly forecast panel just doesn’t make sense, given that the weather page provides more detailed information on the forecast while only providing the bare minimum when it comes to current conditions.

    News is great, but what's killed this app for me is full page ad that refuse to close down. I understand the need for ads, but when you take over my phone that's a deal breaker. 10/20/2020--it seems better so far but only time will tell. 10/22/20--Today all was going well until ads for candy crush popped up and refused to clear. Had to shut down app. Only fix is to uninstall app.

    This app is a "news aggregator". They don't report or edit the news but they aggregate mostly left-wing news media websites. There are some token conservative sites. I have added them all but they are vastly outnumbered. That's why my top page is still always filled with stories from left-wing sites trashing Donald Trump and the GOP. SmartNews is worse than dishonest, they're deceptive, as you can see from Nate's response below. Their bias is really ramping up before the election. Beware.

  • Ad popping Sep 29, 2020

    By Don't even think about it1988
    This app is now randomly throwing up full screen ads with hidden dismiss buttons. It’s amazing how something can go from good to junk apps with one greed based change. Ditching it, you should too. However, this review won’t make it anywhere near the top of reviews for obvious reasons. I’ve found great replacement that doesn’t force feed ads and in comparison to this app, they get me the news I want to read, while still allowing me to find what I want that’s outside my immediate interest. Importantly, without then flooding me with garbage because I read one article. You can say what you don’t like, and that stuff isn’t forced down your throat either. It’s not hard to find something much better, you should look. The developer is asking for suggestions. The suggestion is do not pop up full screen ads that are difficult to close and require user input, or worse killing the app. Simple. The inline ads were (are) plentiful without this. The fact that people don’t click them except accidentally is not a cue to make them full screen and hard to close. That motivation is about $ and advertisers, which has nothing to do with delivering the news. Not the product spots masquerading as articles, the actual news. Either you are a news app or an advertising outlet. Smart news seems to have made that choice. That’s why I, and many others are abandoning the app. It’s not a hard calculus.

    Duh! I had a subscription till you adopted the new intrusive ad versions without notice. To say you'll consider subscriptions is idiotically poor marketing management. I'VE REMOVED THE APP. If you reinstate subscriptions at 3x orig price - motive revealed! It's now become an Ad provider rather then just providing news. The took awsy subscriptions and made it unusable. Even worse, the ads are intrusive to one's privacy. Can't disable personal web browsing data. Looking to replace it soon.

  • App should be named MSNBC2 Oct 30, 2018

    By GiveItARestAlready
    Being fed up with pretty much all media outlets having a noticeable political bias and wanting to JUST k ow what happened, not someone’s analysis of it, I’ve been looking for an app that just gives the news. Let me figure out what it means. an app that I can open up, see what happened in the world today and close it. I gave this app about 4 months. Every time I opened it it seemed to get worse. If there was a Trump/Republican bashing article anywhere on the net, you’ll find it on the front page here. You don’t even have to read the articles to see that everything on this site is for liberals. The titles are hilariously liberal. Don’t think I’ve seen a single article pertaining to the US government or the White House or republican that wasn’t a negative liberal opinion piece. I scrolled through about 5 minutes ago and it was ridiculous. Finally decided to delete it. This isn’t a news site. If you really just want to know what happened in the world today, this is not the site for you. Update: Based on the developers feedback, it’s obvious that anyone who points out that this is a liberal leaning site is told to try Fox News for your conservative views. I’m not even a conservative. Just someone looking for unbiased news and this poser is telling everyone that points out their obvious bias that they’re a conservative and need to look elsewhere for their conservative views. This won’t be around long.

    Downloaded because I like these types of apps to read all the news soon as I opened it I could clearly see whoever does this has a hand in the liberal agenda to destroy America it’s way obvious then I read one of their cringe worthy articles and realize they really are scared most the new generation along with older hipsters and all the career students that racked up debt on pointless wemon study degrees etc. are so afraid they’re everyone else will pay for my bills and generally lazy lifestyle don’t fear trump doesn’t even need to campaign watch and see the deplorable will show up faster than you liberals can create voters bus them in from Mexico Canada it’s not even a possible outcome to loose I been over this whole country the last year just count bumper stickers from even the last election most elections even the winners voters take them off but they’re all still on even the Hillary jail ones and I’m pretty sure she has died already or went back to her hole she came from

  • Smart, direct, honest Sep 22, 2018

    By beishaolin
    This is one of only 2 apps that I use for news. I prefer news that is just that: news. The feeds come from a variety of sources and one can choose what one reads. In our unhealthy news climate, there is a present danger of buckling to the insanity of fringe news from actual non-news sites that cater to a select type wishing to reinforce their agenda. This app keeps the news as it is and unfiltered. For those who only want to read their own talking points back and forth in a limited circle squeezing each other off, they can probably tweak their choices to arrive at that too, but how sad. The news is about fair coverage as it is given by long established and sincere journalists. I appreciate such a well written app and the plethora of offerings from news of all types. Please keep up the good work. Do not succumb to those tiny voices who wish to change the very definition of news.

  • Would give 5 but... Nov 21, 2019

    By Upsetusernumber99
    First off, to anyone complaining about it being “left leaning,” use your head for more than five seconds and control your emotions. I mean that seriously. The app is customizable to allow you to choose the exact news sources you want to see, provided they are in the app. Even if (not saying it is), the app is “left leaning”, do what I do. Just read from sources you trust, just add the right leaning channels. Or, get a bit of balance and have both sides presented before you when you open the app.. which is kinda the point of the app if you’ve seen the commercials. Anyways, I would give 5 stars if there’s a bit more customization. Customization on notifications, frequency of notifications, notifications for new stories from specific channels, etc. And, I would love a “Save for Later” feature. I often find myself opening the app, scrolling through, and seeing several headlines that sound interesting but I don’t have the time or just don’t want to read them at the time. Atm I’m just saving the link to those articles in Notes. I’d much rather be able to tap a button or two that saves it within Smart News itself in a “Save for Later” tab.

  • Solid, simple and customizable Jan 28, 2020

    By airguitarbandit
    I really like the simplicity of this app, especially the smart view of articles that strips away all the ads and such (though it does take images with it sometimes, it’s tricky). I also like that I can set a location and get local stuff mixed in. I would love a history feature where I can see a list of articles I’ve viewed, even the last like 25 would do. I often will want to share good stuff with someone when the topic comes up later in the day or I’ve even locked my phone halfway through an article, then get a notification for another interesting story and click it, only to remember I still had that other article finish which is now gone. Just a suggestion. Overall, really dig the app. Update: starting to see what others are saying about the spam-y articles seemingly being added to the “top” feed. I’ve unsubscribed to all the general channels and only follow publications now, but my top feed still has CNN and Buzzfeed mixed in. I assumed top feed was the aggregate of what I follow and nothing else. Would much prefer that.

  • Oh Please Jan 31, 2020

    By blishblash
    So many comments from conservative folks about the “fairness” of the news on here. News is only supposed to be factual. It’s just supposed to be the reporting of events and what folks said. So when the news reports on that terrible thing Donald Trump said or did and you can’t believe that - even though there may be video right in front of you of DT doing or saying these things - maybe you need to get help to realize what is actual reality and what is Donald Trump’s reality. I’m in fact on the opposite end. Seeing “news” from Pluralist, FoxNews, TheBlaze when the reality of these outlets is outright lying and propaganda designed to only help Trump - it makes me want to delete SmartNews. That crap isn’t news. I wish the developers of this app well as they are in a tough position. Hopefully one day the Fairness Doctrine can be implemented again. Although I have a feeling conservatives would label the Doctrine some sort of liberal conspiracy. Or whatever crazy thing Trump drills in their heads.

  • Becoming more social and celebrity news source Sep 15, 2019

    By Exmon11
    When I first saw the app - was pleasantly surprised on the scope of of the feeds - seemed to collect from all sources. Now it seem too many - perhaps based on trends of what people are clicking on the most from each of the “news sources”. My observation : Looking at the “Top” stories tab it appears to me 50% of the stories are not what I consider news but how some socialite lost their spouse, who is sleeping with who, how a Instagram star was refused service because they were being obnoxious... I generally do not see the value of the stories on that section which is disappointing. To me those types of stories are interesting but it is not news. I know they are eye catching but feels more like buying a family size bag of tortilla chips only finding it 1/4 full of chips and 3/4 air because the product is sold by weight and not volume... I did not want the air - I wanted to chips... HOWEVER the app does most other do not - pull from sources you don’t see on others like Google News, Apple News...etc. I like SmartNews and will continue to use it as my top news aggregator but will generally avoid Top tab.

    Good app if you just want to scroll through some headlines. It seems to push an agenda sometimes which is very aggravating. I've haven't seen a lot of the adaptive learning. If I understand correctly it is supposed to start suggesting content based on your reading. Most of mine will continue to be trivial because I look to fact based content when researching important issues and will not get it from this app most likely.

  • Smart News, Bias Notifications Dec 1, 2017

    By Purplepunch12321
    I downloaded this app because I heard good things about it. Let’s face the facts here MSN is dominated and ruled by liberal bias. You can scream and shout and say otherwise but don’t let that cognitive dissonance get in the way, it is. Conservative/Republican MSM is Fox News and A.M. radio. Thats it. I have to admit, when I first downloaded this app, The homepage was almost split with different news sources. I’d say 40-60 split with liberal news still dominate. But fair. I really enjoy the food and wine pages and some of the entertainment. It’s good to see the contrast for political stories as well. The issue is with the push notifications. Why am I constantly getting news sources pushed to me that are anti-GOP, anti-Trump, and bias news favoring the left? I mean Jesus Christ...I got a couple notifications from sources like Huffington post...they’re nothing more than a glorified blog with bias points of views and zero fact. I like the notifications on my iPhone and watch. But I’m turning them off. I’ve never seen one pro conservative news story pushed to me. There is still a bias here and it’s obvious.

  • Too soon to judge, but..... Jan 11, 2019

    By Otto from WNY
    I’m giving 3 stars because I just downloaded and opened and have not yet explored enough to give it 1 or 5 but wanted to address a common thread in the reviews and review responses I saw before downloading: many users complaining of left-leaning bias and developers responding with a canned response stating the app is optimized for balanced news and to just go add FoxNews or NY Post or Blaze. That’s all fine and good, but it should be balanced from the start and then tweakable. The first thing I saw upon opening was a barrage of “top stories”, 90% of which from left sources. That is inherent bias from the start. The default state of the app should reflect its claim of balance. Basically, if you’re liberal, you’re already set up. If you’re conservative, you have to work at it. Now I will customize and see if it delivers and will update my review accordingly. My recommendation to developers would be to eliminate the bias from the start. In its default state it is a big turnoff to half of your potential users.

  • Broad array of news Jun 13, 2019

    By Breviary1983
    Overall, this app is pretty good. It does provide a broad array of news, political news, sports, sciences, and such. Overall, I can’t complain. It is a bit difficult to find more conservative leanings, but is provided if you do some research and digging on your part. I wish and hope there would be more faith based or religious news being reported, but there is some. Just more of faith though. Definitely worth getting and having. I’m looking at this app merely from the point of view of getting the news, no matter how biased it may be, or its leanings, but merely to get the news and let myself decide from there. I’m not particularly happy with it’s left/liberal leanings, but that’s ok. I want to hear their side, but offer more right/conservative leanings though, so all voices have a chance to be heard and presented. A wonderful and good app though.

    I used to love smartnews. I've been a several-times-a-day user for several years. The new update was a double whammy of disappointment. My biggest complaint: new auto-refresh. I read an article and go back to THE TOP of a scrambled list that filled up with new articles. Deal-breaker! A manual refresh would be great. My second complaint is how aggressive the ads have become. Please fix the auto refresh! I know I'll get a canned response, but I'm not alone here!

The ad itself isn't the issue, but that when I close out of the ad, it takes me to the home page, and not to the article that I clicked on. And then I either don't have time to look for the article, or can't find it and have to Google the bits of the headline I remember reading. Like I said, I don't mind the ads, but can you make it where it doesn't go back to the homepage please?

    Used to work well, allowing you to read articles, comeback to your spot, continue scrolling and get deeper as long as you'd like. Now, after reading an article, it bounces you back to the top, refreshes, and you need to start scrolling through all the articles you've read/passed. This is a deal breaker. I can live with the ads, but they are intrusive. Bring the memory back to the main feed!

Let me figure out what it means. an app that I can open up, see what happened in the world today and close it. I gave this app about 4 months. Every time I opened it it seemed to get worse. If there was a Trump/Republican bashing article anywhere on the net, you’ll find it on the front page here. You don’t even have to read the articles to see that everything on this site is for liberals. The titles are hilariously liberal. Don’t think I’ve seen a single article pertaining to the US government or the White House or republican that wasn’t a negative liberal opinion piece. I scrolled through about 5 minutes ago and it was ridiculous. Finally decided to delete it. This isn’t a news site. If you really just want to know what happened in the world today, this is not the site for you. Update: Based on the developers feedback, it’s obvious that anyone who points out that this is a liberal leaning site is told to try Fox News for your conservative views. I’m not even a conservative. Just someone looking for unbiased news and this poser is telling everyone that points out their obvious bias that they’re a conservative and need to look elsewhere for their conservative views. This won’t be around long.

    Freezes up on a regular basis. The stories are frequently not up to date. A news story that is 5 or more days old is not breaking news. Many times when you click on a story, there is no story. And just reading the reviews, frequently there will be a 'response' from Nate or Nathan saying the exact same thing as the previous review or the next review. Tabloid "news" from Great Britain is not news.
