This is a fast-paced, easy-to-use way to sort through news of the day quickly. What makes Swiipe: News That Knows You particularly great in our news-saturated, fast-paced world is that users briefly view the headlines and photos of all stories on their feed before swiping left or right. That means users see a little about lot of news and only need to deep-dive into the stories they want, when they have time to read them. It would be a nice addition if stories could also be aggregated by keyword or other broad topics beyond the current seven offered. For now, it's a good, simple app that teens (and adults) can use to sort through the news, even with limited time and attention.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
