    "I am going to visit India next month and wanted to get an Indian news app to check out all the latest Indian news. I found The Hindu on the Google Play store and downloaded it to my phone. This is a great app for finding out about everything going on in India. I love all the in-depth coverage. The app works great and I've had no issues with it. Everything is well-organized and looks great. I highly recommend this app."
