    "I want to be informed about the world so my friends and co workers will think I'm smart. But I feel like so much is happening in the world that it's impossible to keep up. Using Inshorts has helped me get on top of things. I don't read every article, but the short summaries help me figure out what I want to read and give me a good general idea of what is happening in the world. Overall it's good, I just wish there was more customization available."

    "While attempting to find apps that focus on technology, I came across the app for Cult of the Mac Magazine, but its interface was clunky and it did not compile much meaningful information. I found that the app simply couldn't compare to news outlets, or reddit for gathering large amounts of interesting tech information. "

    "This app, though states it is for getting back files and pictures on your phone, doesn't appear to do so well. Though it requires rooting, and some people may not be knowledgable about rooting, it still doesn't appear to do so well."
