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.

Best news app

5
If you are looking for an unbiased news app, I can not recommend this enough. They sort news by topic and you can see who is talking about and their bias. So the article might be bias, but you can read multiple to see different sides. Also, this app really has no ads. They don’t spam you, create pop ups, to impact the visibility of their site.

Indispensable

I don’t know of another aggregator that even comes close. I don’t use the mobile app a lot but the service behind it is invaluable.

Great… but also terrible

1
This is not a 1 star news app. This is a 5 star news app. I love the way stories are compiled from various sources and given a bias rating. It truly is a great idea well executed. If you are just a small 10-11 person team, hats off to your skill and product. So why 1 star? Because apparently this is the only way to grab developer attention. Your brilliant app has become a breading ground for misinformation, racism, anti-science and threats of violence. Not from any of the news sources, but from the ability to comment. Glance at any story that’s slightly political. You’ll find a collection of repeat commenters who regularly talk about wanting an armed overthrow of the government, use racist language, spread covid & election misinformation, or in the case of a recent story, defend the use of Swastikas to “protest” a Jewish politician’s decision. It’s clear these people aren’t reading the actual articles, of if they are, they’re not using the app as intended and are only reading those that confirm their biases. There’s no reason to have comments on this app. And if you insist on having a forum for “discussion”, you need to moderate it. If you can’t moderate it, you should remove it until you can. What you’re essentially looking at here is an app where extremists views are amplified in some sick echo chamber, plus some news. Simply suggesting a person turn the comments off is ridiculous. You seem to want to ignore the vile community that’s been breading within your app. Please, fix the issue. Don’t bury your head in the sand.

Scrolling glitch

1
There’s clearly a major issue with the scrolling. Try to scroll up and down quickly and you’ll see it sticks. Super clunky

Good

Mostly good, but too many external sources require logins. Not this app’s fault, but too much for now.

Excellent News Aggregator

5
I’ve had Ground News Pro approximately two years and have seen the developers greatly improve their product over that time. It is one of the best news aggregators out there and the excellent coverage bias analyses make it a must have news app. I highly recommend it.

Get rid of the comments

1
IMO the comments are unnecessary, it’s like being on Parler or some other crazy, right wing propaganda site. Other than that the app is pretty good. I know you can shut them comments off but they shouldn’t be there at all if your whole point is to show news that isn’t biased.

Questionable

Was reading a story from left to center to right. Every story was written by the same journalist except for one. Maybe it was just that particular story or maybe something else… be advised.
