Awesome - save time

Nice and satisfying, I check my email daily, to give ample time to catch up on all the latest on topics of interest.

Pros

What I like most about this program is the time it takes to collect all the posts on a topic (of interest to me).

Cons

The accuracy of the results is not as it should be, as sometimes the results are far from (the designated topic).

Cumple con lo que promete

Pros

Lo que más me gusta es poner alertas sobre palabras clave o temas de mi interes y recibir un mail con un resumen de las noticias relacionadas con ese tema con la periodicidad elegida. Muy interesante

Cons

Hay veces que los temas de las notificaciones se repiten, por lo demás, cumple con lo que promete.
