  • Inspired news

    By PricilaValdez
    I love the effort taken by each blogger/authority/individual on NewsPicks. It makes me feel like I’m reading a piece of culture.
  • Beyoncé?

    By Ricky in Cali
    Downloaded the app this morning, just received a notification about a hit song from Beyoncé. Obviously this is not the news service I’ve been looking for. The search continues.
  • A relief from Apple News

    By The Lou Berger
    Nice to be able to curate news rather than being force fed the shallow compost plaguing Apple news.
  • Meh...

    By Richorlin
    Can’t compare to the depth and breadth of Flipboard. Deleted from my iPad.
  • Perfect Layout for News

    By LightDollar
    Gives the lead-in, you select more if you want more detail. It may end up replacing FB News Feed by just clicking on the icon.
  • Liberal Rag

    By Rough Riders!
    Not very good.
  • Good, definitely some what one sided.

    By Jrfignewton
    There is a definite bias which I dont think could be attributed to the creators per se, but the rating system of commenters kind of allows a majority rule over the app. It is good they have allowed to block certain commenters, however. I dont think its very productive to not allow replies in that it does not allow any discussion or debate over certain view points and just allows the most popular comments to be shown with no rebuttals.
  • Disappointed

    By Alan451
    Not really news. Just a left wing propaganda app.
  • A remarkable community is emerging

    By Arindam Nag
    This is my first week on NewsPicks and I am already addicted. It is the thoughtful comments from my peers on reported events that I find interesting and worth reading. NewsPicks is going to be my frequent 5-minute crack for some time.
  • Very relevant

    By 1234abcbla
    The app seems to know what news I want to read. Simply awesome.
