Pros and cons of Info Junkie app for iPhone and iPad

Info Junkie app good for

I am a librarian and to have all my fave web sites all in one place is very pleasing. User friendly - easy to navigate
If you want news and news and news this is the app for you. You wont ever run out of news! Good app.
Its an app that I use every morning and every night, it lets me view many different media sources which gives a choice to analyze the same news topics with bias opinions in order for me to better formulate my own opinion. I recommend highly to the open minded reader.
Its very handy to have all the different news outlets in one place.
I review several news sources and topics at the end of each day with this handy app.
I get more news on this app than all the rest. I love The Drudge Report to start my day!

Some bad moments

It only provides links to news apps that are free. Save your money and just download the free news apps
This APP is worth four stars after it refunds your money and the five stars rating after your account is credited!! Totally not worth the price......:(
Should we bid Info Junky a farewell ? This app is all but dead on our iPad 2. What could the mater be, HELP!
Every time I delete a news source the app crashes. Annoying!!! I want my money back!
I donwloaded this app based on other reviews. Every time I tried to delete a source I got bounced out.
Freezes. Click a news source and nothing happens. Youre not sure if its loading or just not working. Youll wish youd skipped this one.
