    "I like to stay up to date on important news, but lately there is just too much to keep track of and I have been loosing touch. I love Google New & Weather because it gives me everything I need to know in one place. I can specify what I am or am not interested in and it does a great job learning my preferences. This is now my one stop shop for all my news needs."

    "SmartNews is an app that needs a lot of work. It offers daily news, as it says it does, but often pushes content that readers have no interest in. The ads that are pushed through make the entire app slow and laggy, and the popup notifications get really annoying really fast. It needs a lot of work."

    "I love to be current on various topics, but who has the time to go to multiple sites to get all the latest information. I found and started using Flipboard to make my own personal magazine that only has topics that interest me and keep me updates. It is the sophisticated and personal experience that I was looking for."
