    Great balance between local and global news, very well designed and polished interface, the map view


    none so far

    I really really like the map view. I follow soccer and with ground I can zoom in on Manchester, Munich, Madrid, Barcelona, etc. to follow different matches and see what is happening

  • Pros: 

    Great local news coverage, it distills the need to know info


    none so far . . .

    I posted a story about an auto accident closing lanes of traffic yesterday and received immediate response from other users that my post helped their commute. New is from many sources and verified as not being FAKE news.

@manny_orduna It's the electrical ground symbol, so no surprise there's more than one company using it.

Congrats on the Launch! Where do you see Ground going in the next 6-12 months, Harleen? More crowdsourced news? More AI? More editorial? Looks great so far!
