What's New in Version 6.8.2
Go to news app
This is my go to News app. I'm quite a News junkie and yet no matter how many new News apps I get, no matter how aesthetically appealing and deep they go or how hard they chase down truths... None really compare to the AP app for getting the big news of the day fast and concise. They have many stories as a wire service that outlets like aj or (rhymes with rice) just don't have the time to cover.
Whether you want a quick glance at what's going on or like me need to dive deep, you'll love this app for the price of free.
Having said that, ads at times annoy me, they're no bigger than other competitors but I wish AP would allow me to pay for an ad free experience. (I'd gladly shell out $5-$12 a year or half-year for the privilege).
Pointless Tiled-Photo Interface
The iPhone interface will not let you quickly scan headlines to find stories that interest you. Instead, you have to click on a photo to see even a subset of headlines. To make matters worse, the photos don't really help you navigate. Some give you no clue about their story.
The writing also leaves a little bit to be desired. Sometimes articles have a very long-winded introduction before they get to the real meat of the article. This is uninteresting in addition to being frustrating.
Best news app to date
The app is great, as it features many desirable options not available on other app like Reuters TV. You can stay up to date with the latest news from around the world usually with multimedia. The writing is superb, straight to the point, and highly descriptive. Get it now!
