App Store Description

Telescope is a news reader app where you can follow news sources, video channels and RSS you love.

- Say NO to personalization bubbles!
- Say NO to the fake news!

Get top stories *only* from the news you follow.

You can subscribe to trusted news sources such as New York Times, NPR, Bloomberg, The Verge and thousands more. You can simply search for your favorite news sources and subscribe to them or you can add their RSS feeds. Telescope also lets you subscribe to your favorite Youtube channels.

Once you subscribe to sources you like, Telescope will show you aggregated 'Home Feed' with latest articles and videos only from your subscribed channels. By default, they are sorted by their 'hotness' calculated based on the upvotes received across the Telescope community. Additionally, you can choose to sort your feed by time, 'top of the day' or 'top of the week'.
