People who trash this idea have no clue! I get time for snippets of news on TV or bits of internet news, I barely listen to radio. If I want 'other news' or information I have to seach, or buy a range of magazines. TV news is such a shadow of news - pretty boy or girl presenters who rudely interrupt their 'guests' and they cut them off to go to a commercial break, or the next segment when they are really starting to say something interesting. Fast pace, go go go itty bitty news is rubbish. I'd prefer someone to spend a moment thinking about what to write, and offer me something that will encourage me to read more. Apps like this will develop I'm sure with more and more content so that most of the interesting stuff is in one place. The price is a bargain as well.
