Your latest update now allows video ads to auto-play even when the option is turned off. Please fix it . Also, still waiting for the option to filter news sources. Mostly good, but I would give it 5 stars if the authors provided a way to filter specific news outlets from the feed. Some news outlets are so biased I never click on the link and simply scroll past.

We’ve built SmartNews to emphasize discovery over personalization. We think there’s value in seeing what “the other side” has to say from time to time. Blacklisting is currently not an available feature, but I will pass your request along to our product team. If you want to see more from certain publishers, you can add them on the Discover page.

Original post: Liberal news. Updated post: Thanks for correcting me. I was able to add more conservative news sources to get a balanced view. Rating adjusted accordingly. I like the app, I will give 5 stars once the predefined "Top" channel includes more of the top news organization. I mean Fox News is the top cable news network and they are not even listed even once in the pre-fabbed Top channel option. That seems out of balance to me.

Articles in the Top channel are refreshed regularly, so at any given time you might see more liberal or more conservative news, but ultimately our algorithms are made to provide a balanced perspective. You can add Fox News, The Blaze or other conservative sites by going to Discover (last tab on the right), using the search bar, and adding channels.

Severely biased by default. Nate says the machine is optimized to provide the best relevant news but relevant to who?? I have yet to see any balance- All the news and notifications I've seen has a noticeable and severe lean to the left. Having said that I think the display and 3 story notification layout is fantastic and technically made very well. I don't like when opinion pieces are displayed in a headline and presented as factual. Please remember the other half of the country...
SmartNews, Inc. July 24, 2019
SmartNews is optimized to provide news from both sides. If you'd like more of a conservative perspective on the news, you can add Fox News or Washington Examiner tabs on our Discover page. The "For You" section on the Top channel will also change to better reflect your interests & help you discover stories based on your reading preferences. - Nate
