Possibly the best news source

Easy to build and monitor interests, plus measure news impact.

Excellent app, have had absolutely no problems with it. The picture galleries are gorgeous! Would like to be able to post /share those pics via social networks just like one can with articles, but other than that, it's very well executed!

I love the app, but whenever I share something or switch out of the app then come back, it always loses track of which article I was reading and goes straight to the start page of the app. Very annoying and severely limits sharing potential. Fix it!

Great app, clean and beautiful, just what Microsoft probably envisioned for windows phone .

A good service. App needs some more basic additions and performance fixes. 1. Add a night mode. That is quintessential. 2. Crashes most of the time when opened through notifications. 3. UI can have some refinements.

I had this app on my previous phone (Android), and loved it. On the windows phone, the app seems to be a little more rough around the edges. There are fewer settings, which I found to be disappointing. Regardless of this, I still greatly appreciate the content and the app overall is still solid. Just a few alterations from being a 4/5 star app.

Mainstream to the Extreme.

I'm seeing more and more headlines advancing homosexuality of late, so this is clearly the emphasis of the maintainers of this app. This app works OK, but its feed management is clearly agenda-driven (what else is new ;^). My primary concerns with most news outlets these days is the complete ignorance of history. News Republic gathers all these sources together, providing the reassuring head-pat for those without historical discernment.

News Republic stops erratically

When reading this publication, the app will just stop and disappear - when it wants to. It could be the 4th article or the 40th, it doesn't matter when or where, it just disappears.
