Description

For anyone fighting against the rise of misinformation, sensationalism, and biased news, Ground News Pro will help you easily compare how a story is being covered by thousands of sources from across the political spectrum and from around the world. If you are like the many people who feel overwhelmed and under-informed as they piece together patchwork information from social media and conflicting news sources, Ground News Pro will empower you with an array of visualization and comparison tools that makes it simple to analyze, understand, and draw your own conclusions about a developing news story. Unlike traditional news aggregators, which utilize crowd-sourcing and algorithms that reward clickbait and reinforce pre-existing bias, Ground News Pro helps users understand the news objectively based on media bias, geographic location, and time. Launching two weeks before the first votes are cast in the U.S. presidential race, Ground News Pro is the world’s first news comparison platform that will help voters make better informed decisions, drawing from more than 40,000 news sources worldwide and featuring an average of 30,000 news stories per day. Ground News Pro is not only where you want to get your news and where you want your neighbor to get their news.

Right wing propaganda machine

All the tRump cult faves all in one place. They are the first to be suggested to me in nearly every category. Beitbart, faux news, Washington times, daily caller and all the others

Bias ratings require PRO

1
Without the bias ratings sort, the whole reason I downloaded this app, this is just another news aggregator.

The idea behind this app is brilliant.

The idea is amazing but the app itself is a little clunky. Some of the articles seem like they do not belong under their topics. Scrolling can be a little choppy. I am enjoying this app quite a bit. Waiting patiently for some optimizations and this app will be 5 of 5 stars.

Be real on your news outlets.

Don’t rate the left leaning news outlets as they would those on the right. For example CNN is rated as leaning left. That is absurd. If Fox News is right ( that’s fair ) then CNN is definitely left not ‘ left leaning’ . I really like the variety of news and the stories and this would have probably been a five star review if the were more unbiased on how they classify news outlets. Grounded actually seems left leaning.

Good idea, bad execution

3
This app is a great idea, as a lot of news sources cannot be trusted due to them being biased, but this app is very laggy and finicky to use. Just scrolling down the top stories page is laggy, and the app interface is just poorly organized. I also feel like this app should just be able to take news stories from apps like Apple News and see if they are true, rather than having to go directly into the Ground News app and see what top stories they have picked; especially since the top stories in this app are worldwide instead of national. National news is all that matters to me. This app definitely needs refinement.

Novel Concept but Broken

Novel concept, however I am receiving a “The certificate for this server is invalid.” upon signing up/using as guest. Will revise review when issue is resolved.

Ground breaking news app

Love how the data is presented and how it makes easy to detect bias. This is what the world needs right now

Use Your Own Critical Thinking Skills

All the other newsfeed apps deliver you content via algorithms created by guys in hoodies in Silicon Valley. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want some faceless dude telling me what I should (or shouldn’t) be reading. This app delivers me a wide range of content for each news event and lets me decide how to digest the topic by allowing me to objectively review the news item by source, bias rating, location, etc. I have been using this app for some time and it has helped me be a better consumer of news.

Need a couple of more react emojis

4
I’m liking what I am seeing so far. With the exception of a couple of things... Some "center" publications clearly "lean left" and most "lean left" are clearly "left" . Right publications are labeled well. Need to add a laughing emoji most definitely.

Took away landscape mode

Put it back. Don’t do this to iPad users. Otherwise it’s a deal breaker on a 12.9” screen. UPDATE: they have fixed this. I bumped it back up to 5 stars.
