Comments and Ratings for News Explorer

Nice news reader (1.1)
06/09/2016 21:21:00 4/5 By Geofffrey Burnett
Decided to give this app a try as I kike the idea of being able to sync using iCloud rather than a third party service. I had a problem with the initial version, but the developer was very fast at responding and fixing the issue. Happy customer.

From this dev.
