The app has no native way to disable notifications. Otherwise it's a pundits Twitter. Coll idea, but annoying when it beeps.
The app is great, but I wish discussions could focus on events outside the US.
It just feels like something is missing in this app. I don't really understand how to navigate through it or find topics that are important or interesting to me.
This isn't actually that groundbreaking, just boring watercooler chatter from the people who wear their influences on their sleeves that pretend to be impartiality minded when reporting the news. It's a cheer leading app for Hillary.
This is my favorite political news app since, unlike most other news sources, there is absolutely no fluff, spam or gossip, it shows only high quality posts from reputable sources... plus its beautifully designed and runs perfectly on my oldish phone.
There is no such thing as an expert in the realm of political commentary. News? Yes there are experts such as good reporters but political commentary is one idiots opinion vs anothers.', Armchair QBs gunslinging with bravado for all the missed glory of their own fate.
Sidewire is a great example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. What sidewire is doing isn't new, (political news), but it's simple, constrained format makes it exactly what so much of us want, our news summarized quickly with the option to dive deep.
Great app but is it just American politics?
Well designed and with great performance
Adding in other news would be nice unless I just haven't found it yet. I like the interface a lot.
I really appreciate bio's are included so you who is giving the information. It allows me to decide if it's credible or not. Great job!
Good effort and nice looking app but you should really make it clear that this is a US Politics app. The Play Store is an international market after all! **EDIT** Extra couple of stars for the reply. Cheers Guys!
Nicely done, this is a great app to keep up on the daily politics of the US.
Love this app. It keeps me up to the minute with the news
This is literally the same talking points, same people, same partisan crap. If i wanted to listen to fox and cnn show hosts, i would watch fox or cnn. This is brainwashing overkill. Thought i would be able chat as well, but instead its just the same crap...
This app makes reading the news fast and easy--rather than scrolling to find analysis about the news on my crowded twitter feed, its all organized in one place. I also appreciate that multiple parties and political affiliations are represented
Never get lost in the political world again
This is now my primary news app.
Great concept, executed perfectly. I was once in the lobby of a hotel in New Hampshire on the Saturday before the primary - lots of great political conversations everywhere. This is like that. Except here I can move closer to listen in on Jake Tapper without him calling security.
Really enjoyed following along Senator Graham on here. Great app!
It's so interesting seeing what smart people have to say about current issues. Hope to see more and more content
App is nice looking, runs smoothly .. But there seems to be a lack of content. Many parts are simply 1 sentence quotes.. that can be taken out of context, so those are useless. Then there are other bits that link to articles which is fine except I've read most already (nothing new here). .. Not a bad app.. Just lacking content and the content they do have I get other places
