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.

Reviews

  • Agree with all other reviews: allowed ad blockers

    I agree with most reviews, the premise and execution of this app is great. Allows me to read articles from different sources and understand other perspectives but only when I’m able to read the articles! Allow for the system browser to run its content blocker. I’m really trying to read an article but there are just WAY WAY to many ads.
  • Great Idea with tons of pop-up ads

    The pop ups will take the entire screen at times and they can’t always be closed. I have the paid version.
  • Not another one...

    I liked this app until the recent push for election. I’m neither a republican nor democrat so don’t think I am leaning one way or another but when you have literal political ads for either side and they are labeled as “center” you’ve sold out. Obviously the political ads will be bias towards whatever candidate is approving them. I’ve noticed increasingly that the “left, right, center” labels have been skewed. I don’t know who you have making those decisions but they need to be checked!
  • Good app

    Good app, unfortunately something is causing the upgrade to hang when trying to go to pro version.
  • Best App for really knowing the News

    I have been using this app for a few months now and I really love it! More than any other news source or aggregator, this one provides so many features to compare and understand how the news is reported differently by region, political leanings, or even just how the story changes over time. It features blindspot reports, alerts, links to sources. I love flipping through the headlines to see the subtle word choices as you move from left to right or US based to world based news. I have over 75 news sources linked in my browser, fact checkers, sites on media rankings, and yet I feel I have learned more just being able to see the stories play out in real-time.
  • Bias is everywhere

    This app is amazing for showing bias with different new sources left/center/right. I also appreciate that is shows blindspots on topics that some platforms may not be covering. A great app that’s organized so you can find out all the information and then form your own opinion on the topic.
  • US politics, not much else

    Unless you pay to play your going to see the same most mainstream lame topics everyday
  • Interesting. Be careful.

    I’ve noticed that certain stories don’t appear on the app at all. Despite them being bipartisan. And major news. Which is weird. Keep your eyes open. But it’s a good idea. And decently executed from what I can tell.
  • Good when it works

    I like being able to see how / how much news is being covered by various media outlets. Where the app fails is often it will not load any articles. I’ll open it - nothing. Hit the refresh button - nothing. Quit the app and reopen it - nothing. Trying to use the app as a guest throws a 403 error. Trying to Sign In with Apple doesn’t work either. Same 403 error. Cannot view your profile when signed in. Cannot click the “review” button. But like I said... when it works I like it
  • Great way to get out of echo chamber

    The app does a great job of providing ready access to reporting from across the political spectrum. I often disagree with what I end up reading on here, which to me is entirely the point as I would otherwise keep to my echo chamber
