Truth Network iPhone/iPad App Review

GiveMeApps Rating: 4.5 out of 5
Pros:
  • Takes the initiative of hand-selecting fact based news pieces
  • Includes several categories and video
Cons:
  • At the moment dominated by certain news outlets per category
  • Could use some more news categories

There was a time when many believed that the most shocking and horrifying events ever to occur on a grand scale are all now relegated to History textbooks. With the last election cycle, recent political and ideological conflicts as well as weather and geological phenomena, there is no shortage of news to keep us on our toes. The question is, with the proliferation of online news organizations and corporate sponsorship of traditional outlets, which news is "real news"? "Fake News" was popularized by President Trump's comments toward criticism from CNN and has plagued news organizations as whole ever since.

The Truth Network has a news app which aims to bring you real news all of the time. They hand pick fact-based and unbiased news articles from reputable media outlets and respected journalists. If you've ever browsed any news site or used any news app, The Truth Network is super-easy to navigate.

Truth Network aims to bring unbiased, fact-based news

 

While membership isn't required, signing up lets you like and comment. Using the app as a visitor gives you access to all content which includes several key categories. Those include Religion, Education, Technology, Medical, Government, Environment and Investigative among others. 

We found that many of stories in certain categories are dominated by certain media outlets at the moment. NPR and Puppet Masters are the first few that come to mind. This is a notable observation as the developer claims hand-picked. This either means that there are very few trustable sources or a leaning toward cetain outlets. We will go with the former. We know off the cuff that a lot of people follow NPR because they cover stories that many others ignore. Still however, this leaves you wondering.

We are under the opinion that every organizaton will lean one way or another. What matters is how far they lean and how much they stick to the facts and evidence. The Truth Network is entering an arena which its users will expect it to live up to its promise. So far it seems to be doing just that. If you are looking for "real news", at least the Truth Network is heeding the call.
