Much refined app
AP Mobile has gone a long way in its user interface. Now it has some universal gestures to help navigate, customisable category layout, and interface to spread news in major social media including Google+. (They fixed intermittent problems with Facebook posting, although it is still odd to open FB app only on the home page - most of the time, instead of going directly into posting. You have to do it a second time.) It also has contained graphic pollution that initially plagued the screen when they initially began to make the home pages graphic centric.
The real question is: If App Store says I "reviewed this application on Mar 04, 2015,” why doesn’t it save my review? Not only has my review box been wiped blank when this Write a Review screen popped, I can’t even see it in App Store when I browsed back to that date.
Like not love
I really like this app. But there are two problems that make it really frustrating for me. 1 when viewing pictures from the article pop up ads frequently cover up the text with no obvious way of dismissing them. In the articles themselves the pop ups don't cover up any of the text. 2 when using my iPad and using my thumb to scroll, it is often interpreted as I want to open some article which is not what I want. Very frustrating. clean this up and I could give it a 5 star.
Decent app excluding the ads
The ads are what drive me crazy. You think you are clicking on an image, but it is a video. Therefore you have to wait through an ad (which is longer than the video itself). Also, most of the time the ad crashes at the end and just sits there. There is no way to exit the ad except closing the app and getting your news on Google. Therefore, don't click on images or videos. Just read the articles.
