Simply is the highest rated news app globally

Simply reaches goal of top user acceptance


January 8, 2014 – On the way to its goal to become the most used news app internationally, Simply reached an important milestone: the app is now the highest rated news app globally.

App users can leave ratings in the iTunes appstore (iOS) and at Google Play (Android), ranging from one to five stars. With values between 4.6 and 4.8, Simply has reached the top value among all news apps globally, independent of platform and country. Currently, over 4,000 ratings for Simply were entered by users.   

The rating comments emphasize the outstanding simplicity, great user experience and the satisfying news offering by Simply.

„The key challenge for new apps is to win the appreciation of users. Until this point is reached, nothing else matters. Wir are happy that we have reached our product/market fit already in our first 6 months after launch“, says Franz Buchenberger, CEO of Pylba. „Now we can pursue our next objectives with confidence.“
