    Pros: 

    Simple design. Really fast. Fun, new features. Felicity is a stroke of genius. Hard to believe this app was developed by a 17 year old!

    Cons: 

    Not available on Android but the developer has said below that he’s working on a website.

    TLDR: The fact that a high schooler has developed a news app worthy of competing against high startups and companies shows the tenacity and vision he has and is automatically a guarantee that this app will only get much, much better.

    So I’ve been using this app since early June when it was featured in the iOS App Store’s New Apps We Love. At first, I was hesitant: “Another news app?” But that all changed the moment I downloaded it. First, the app only shows you the top headlines so unlike other news apps, it doesn’t present you with a large stream of information. Behind the scenes, everything works smooth and really fast. You can expect news at any time of the day.

    There are also a lot of innovative features which make the app really stand out. Trending Polls is a great way to communicate with users and see what other have to say about the Trending Story. Felicity is simple out of this world. Sure, there are better smart assistants, but never one that has been specifically honed in for news. While it does only search for people, places, and organizations, the developer has said that he is developing his own machine learning algorithm to improve it.

    Overall, it’s hard to imagine that a 17 year old developed this app which is much better than Apple News! The fact that it’s only one person shows that there is no agenda. He’s also pretty active on Twitter listening to your feedback so you know the app will always be improving. Anyways, that’s my $0.02.

  • Pros: 

    This app has a beautiful design and a great feed for your morning briefings. It covers all the top stories covering all your interests

    Cons: 

    There are still some features that are not out yet, but soon they will be

    This app is my new go to app for my morning briefings on the news. I always get the news I need from Views and the design of it makes it simple and easy to use. It’s a playful yet elegant app that lets users explore news in a radically new way, especially with the help of Felicity!

  • Pros: 

    Very clean UI, very fast, reliable

    Cons: 

    None through the experience I had!

    This app has been my daily driver out of all other news apps. I love Views News, and when I found out it was created by a high school student, I was very proud of what he had created and the enormous potential this app has! Very great app!
