This app does what is says, is simple, effective and easy to use. If only all apps were as friendly as this one. Besides news, we use to promote tips of the day.

Simple, Easy and is an excellent space saver on a page

This App works as advertised and fills the gap between microfeeds and article/blog posts. I especially like the fact that the App-part 'auto-sizes' horizontally and doesn't take up to much of vertical space on a page. There is some additional configuration needed to get it to work on custom lists, instructions for this are added tot the detailed description.
Excellent work here!
Note: as the App-part uses an iframe to present its content, you can use jquery for your custom styling needs

After placing the app the user only needs to add items into the list provided by the app. The items will then be displayed inside the app-part.
Configuring the app is simple and requires only little technical background from the user.
Would be nice to see the composed look of SharePoint being applied to the NewsTicker.

This simple app works just fine. It's nice that you can switch through different styles and the size fills dynamically to your web page.
The configuration of the "New Ticker List" field is a Little tricky. You have to know, what to fill in there. Sadly there is no list picker of some sort. That's the reason I give only 4 of 5 stars.

Added the app to my page but it did not display any news items even after adding a link to the announcements list in the web part properties.

Trying to use this on an SP2013 Foundation website (shared hosting). Didn't work with either the installed announcements list and didn't work with my custom announcements list (no items ever ticked by). Tried every possible combination in the "New Ticker List" field (from just the name of the list to the full URL of the list)...didn't work.
