5-0 radio vs. Scanner 911

5-0 Radio is better than Scanner 911 when it comes to feeds. Just having the ability to add additional feeds is already a plus. There's a whole directory of 33,000 feeds from ShoutCast and other places that you can add to 5-0 Radio that you cannot add to Scanner 911.

Also, with 5-0 Radio, you can email yourself and your friends the feeds. Then, you can listen to the feeds from your desktop computer or laptop. Scanner 911 does not have this feature.

Adding your favorite sites to News Feed

Someone asked me how to add their local news site. So for everyone's reference, this is how to do it (using newsok.com as the example):

First go to www.newsok.com in our app by using the address bar. If there is no address bar, tap on the bottom-right to bring up the toolbars. Once you are at the website, tap the "+" symbol and tap "Save Bookmark". Now tap on the home button on the top left. You should see a Bookmarks category on the very bottom of the main screen. Tap on the corresponding bookmark number (probably 1), and it will bring you www.newsok.com.

Thanks for making us the #1 news app. We're working hard on version 4.0 as you read this.

News Addict Vs. News Feed

News Addict
- can't save articles to be read offline.
- has broken links including Huffington Post.
- hasn't been updated since July 09. We update our app every 2-3 weeks.
- can't share links by email.
- lacks a home button, so you have to press back a lot of times.
- can't search on all news sources.
- doesn't contain tech/sports/business/entertainment/other sources.
- only has about 35 working sources.
- doesn't allow you to sort/delete/add your own sources.

News Feed can do all of the above, and has 145 working sources.
