I really wanna like this app..


Looks great but its inaccurate as hell...I flip through fb posts and half the time when I click one it goes to a post that isn't even close to the one I picked!! Very annoying!

Makes it useless but it looks great.

After about a day's use, i love it. I'm used to Pulse so it was weird to only see one article per page, but after "ignoring" the "Pulse way of doing things", it's freaking awesome. Love it.

Btw, make sure to make an account so you can add many many more sources

Great little app. Not interested in the Facebook and the Twitter integration, I have third party apps for that. Really aesthetically pleasing though, and is beautifully smooth on the Note

After using all day, the only issue is even after selecting the uk as my area its still chucking up loads of US news, which to be fair I couldn't care a less about (no offence meant), but suppose I'm learning something. All in all i love it and I actually think the facebook integration is pretty good.

Edit: just discovered the mute option to mute certain authors and also a news (uk edition)

Edit 2: I do seem to get force closes on some news items from particular authors when trying to view a story. Telegraph uk is one

It's a little annoying that it doesn't save your place if you hit the back button.

A few times I've hit back by mistake and then when you go back into a magazine you have to scroll all the way to where you were before.

Having more pictures is nice for some types of magazines, but for news and tech articles I'd rather just have more info and less gloss.

Just swipe back instead of pressing the back button.

I been playing with it for about 30 minutes now. I couldn't leave it once I started exploring. This is exactly what I needed as social media ,news and rss are all in one place in a comfortable and conventional style. I am convinced to uninstall pulse, feedly, google reader and all those news apps. Thank you so much for making this possible. Is this a Samsung app originally?

I hope you can port all those apps one by one from Sg3. Graditudes

To anyone having trouble with this app, check that you do not have forced GPU acceleration in developer options. It caused a lot of issues for me but is now running perfectly now I've disabled it.
