I'm curious how you are using the News app. I started off with the handful of suggested channels. I also added a few larger publications, but I soon realized that following a popular channel is too overwhelming. They post new stories every few minutes. Instead, I got rid of all those big names and started following topics. Following individuals is manageable (like Gruber or Marco), but following Slate or Wired would make my entire feed feel like spam. I occasionally heart stories too so I'm hoping it starts showing me only things I want to see. As of now, it's still sort of a mystery. I suppose I just have to trust what it shows me.
