  • Another one sided new app

    I like the idea of the app and it’s design, unfortunately there is a definite bias, promoting the liberal point of view. The news sites that support this view figure prominently, this appears to come from the editors and supported by the viewers. A suggestion to fix this is allow us to block stories, individual commentators, or even particular editors. If this is instituted I will try the app again. Simply allowing us to design a news feed of thing we like is not enough.
  • My take on NewsPicks So Far As A New User

    By Porter Versfelt III
    1) I like the concept of exposing people to more diverse ideas and people. 2) The size of the text in the app needs to be larger, or give users a choice of sizes to choose from. 3) More subject areas need to be offered. NewsPicks is off to a good start. Porter Versfelt III Atlanta, Georgia USA
