Software Reviews and Criticism

    The world DOES need this... From an app that isn't broken.

    I'm gonna make this short and sweet. You guys have 10 people on the team and it looks like 9 of you need to give most of your wages to the poor guy or girl that wrote this application on his their own. I get what you're trying to do and I support it completely. However, as an engineer I cannot support this app because, well, basically, it's broken. I wasn't even able to finish my initial testing because I couldn't get passed the very odd window sizing and resizing, and eventually it locked up my system and I now I can gladly say I can recreate the problem quite easily. That's a serious bug, I would go so far as to say that your app probably needs an overhaul from an experienced programmer. If you're interested in some free (for a time) consulting, send me an email. With that saidl.. NEWS ALERT - Your program isn't ready. Fix it and give people what you really want, not this less-than-acceptable excuse for software.

    Cannot Resize Window

    Cool app and appeciate its vision. However, I cannot vertically resize the window. That makes it unusable for me since I am not going to change my Windows desktop layout and how I work (i.e. hide the dock) to see the bottom of the window. Three stars represents the average of 5 for vision/functionality and 1 for UI implementation.

    Cute, but not useful

    For a short while, it might be entertaining to see the political leaning of the sources that cover the news, Ground is not a very good news reader. This app would be better if it was created as a "news reader that gauges political leaning of the source," rather than a "gauge of the polical leaning of media sources which highlights some articles."

    A tool for seeing both sides

    I have been using this as my primary news source for over a year. I value the ability to see multiple sides of a story including photos and videos relevant t the topic. I am still getting used to the new update. It definitely feels less clunky and much smoother to navigate, however, it is a real shame to see that the comments section has been removed in the new update. It was a largely unmoderated place (save a strict filter for inappropriate words) where people could speak their mind on topics. I greatly value the ability to see and discuss different perspectives . With that comes some toxicity, but that is anywhere people speak and people were free to turn it off or mute if they didn’t like it. It was so popular that many topics seemed to be exceeding the amount of space GN allotted for comments. I am very sad to see that instead of expanding it, they chose to shut it down. America is suppose to be a place where free speech is protected yet corporations continue to impede that ability more and more. There are so few venues to discus perspectives and challenge ideas because corporations continue to strangle out discussions and information that they do not like. I am not happy that Ground News chose to destroy their free speech platform (however small it was) which closed down one more venue that allowed the discussion of current events and perspectives.

    Version 4.0.1 redesign was a mistake

    Just got Ground a few weeks ago and started paying for the highest tier the same day. I was very glad to find an aggregate of important news composed of different sources from across the political spectrum, and was transparent on where it’s sources lied on the spectrum. That hasn’t changed with this update, but man does the app look gross now, and it makes things look more confusing. In the previous update it was simple: flat color background (it was black to me but that could just be because I have dark mode on for my phone) with red for conservative, gray for center, and blue for liberal sources. Clean and easy to see. Now it’s a weird light colored gray for the background and a beige highlight. The color for the biases are the same, but now they feel the need to add a gradient to the colors so it just looks like a giant gray bar with some red mixed on the right and some blue mixed on the left. I get that the point is to show an intensity in bias, like the more solid the color the stronger the bias is. However it looks ugly, and I much prefer the old view to the new one. I appreciate what they were going for, but wish they had kept it simple. Please fix, or at least give us the option to switch back to the old color pallet if we want to.
