(5★) Beautiful flow that should age well: App design is blow. UX team should be giving props on simplistic yet beautiful design. Pronunciation could get better but I feel
like it will learn in time. This app is one-of-kind and worth having on

(4★) Questionable Swaggy (?): I love this app, but the ability to choose specific sports or what ever to follow is slightly disappointing.

(4★) Just got Winston: I just downloaded Winston and I am pleasantly surprised. I agree with other reviewers that some of the words are jumbled together
and the British accent is annoying(for me). If there was a way to use

Feb 23, 2014
(4★) Nice!: Great browsing app! Love to listen to the headlines. Winston sounds a little bit like Michael Caine. Looking forward to more
software updates.
(4★) Brilliant but Needs Custom Search Terms: Needs the following:1) major news outlets I multiple categories - eg why foxnews in world only and not politics2) custom keyword
(as in google news search) would make this one of the most useful apps

Feb 18, 2014
(4★) Wonderful App!: I love not having to stare at my device to be updated in events, my only issue, and the reason for only 4 stars, is as Winston
says his goodbye, the piano in the background abruptly cuts off, which le

(4★) If only Winston could mate with Siri.: This would be the perfect app if I could talk to it like siri and have it read my texts, mail, make phone calls for me, launch
apps, do web searches then read me the results. Hopefully one day this wi

Nov 23, 2013
(5★) MY #1 source for my news!: Winston for iPhone is the only app I use for news. Get the headlines read to me on my way to work and before bed. I can focus on
my social network feeds also when or if I want them read. Just wish the

(5★) Works even better now, awesome app!: Love the interface, it works the way you think it will, and great news/topics to choose from. I get my news in the morning without
having to lock my tired eyes on a bright screen.
Nov 06, 2013
(3★) The voice needs work.: The app is good, but the voice needs work.
Oct 31, 2013
(4★) Almost Perfect.: The end of certain phrases is abrupt, almost jarring (which is noticeable considering how smooth everything else is). Beyond that,
Winston is my new go-to app for news updates and more.
Oct 14, 2013
(4★) Much improved from prior versions: Very cool and polished app. The briefing feature rocks. The narrators speech is much better than older app versions but still
has some room for improvement. App crashes when trying to log into Face
Oct 13, 2013
(2★) App stuck: The app did not update the newsfeed and would keep informing me of old information.
Oct 01, 2013
(2★) No longer updates automatically: The news briefing no longer updates automatically. I noticed that the weather report and news stories were the same for three days
in a row. You now have to force a refresh before starting the briefin
Sep 27, 2013
(4★) Very cool but voice needs work: Love this app and what it does but the voice needs work, specifically with its pronunciation. It often sounds far to
robotic/unnatural, and detracts from this mostly pleasant experience.
Sep 20, 2013
(5★) Brilliant: I literally never take the time to write reviews. But Winston has been a very pleasant addition to my iPhone and overall routine.
I love the proper polish of the delivery.

(5★) Seriously dude?!?: This app is Fantabumazing! The voise is so smooth and I love how it gives you an overview of everything! Good job!

(3★) Excellent. almost: No Twitter sharing?! AddTwitter and Winston will be my best friend!
Sep 07, 2013
(5★) Great for catching up on news: This app is extremely useful for catching up on news without having to sit down and read through stories one by one. I used to
subscribe to newsfeeds on Twitter but now I use Winston more often.
Sep 05, 2013
(4★) Almost There: Integrating an alarm feature, where the briefing is launched at a specified time, would make this app so useful, as of now it is
well executed but feels gimmicky.My ability to wake up in the morning,

(5★) Perfection: Magnificent! The updates are great. Everything is perfect.

(3★) Bug, But Otherwise Good: I like how in the latest update, it can call you by your name. However, a bug arises that every time I listen to a newscast and it
finishes, the app crashes. I will give this a better rating after it
Jun 27, 2013
(5★) Impressed: I feel like Robert Downy Jr in iron man getting my automated personal briefing. I also like the design and subtle movement
incorporated into photos. N the Facebook birthday reminder is a nice touch.

(4★) I love the app!: Winston for the iPhone is cool. I really love the app.
May 08, 2013
(5★) Magical: The app takes about 2 mins to get itself set up, no small task I imagine, but the real magic, and I do mean magic, happens when
you have logged in and start using it. The app greets you by name and of
