    I'm loving the new News app! It's awesome having everything in one feed and stripped of all the pop up ads and such. No more having to visit for me. :confused:

    I must have bad timing, because I thought I'd check Apple News out and got this:

    I am!

    It could improve with a sort toggle (from oldest to newest and vice-versa) and more sources for the general interests (I used to follow 'Film' on Flipboard and it had very good sources such as Flickering Myth and HeyUGuys, none of which are available on the Movies section. Other than that, loving it.

    I am. It's the best place to read news from big news source like CNN, Times, Reuter or publishers like National Geographic or Wired for example.

    I'd be happier if all Apple blogs would be published in Apple News format rather than RSS. It just doesn't look as good compared to big publishers above.

    Count me in, the Apple News app is pretty awesome. Although I try to stick with Flipboard, and give business to a stellar third-party, multi-platform company.

    I just hope that Apple News isn't the gateway that Apple or publishers use to force us under a paywall for content.

    I enjoy it. Its a close alternative to Flipboard. I feel as if over time, it'll only get better and I will use Flipboard less.

    I really like it. Flipboard felt cluttered to me. I think improvements can be made but so far the News app has been a welcome update.

    Yes I think it makes better use of screen space than Flipboard on iPhone, on Flipboard the text is often far larger than it needs to be, they really aren't taking advantage of the larger iPhones. Flipboard has a big advantage by letting you mute sources however.

    The News app still does not rotate videos to landscape mode for videos embedded in news articles. I gave them feedback on this while in public beta and they still didn't fix it.
