What's New in Version 6.7
Bug fixes and performance improvements
I'm not going to waste everyone's time telling about how the app works, you can already see that from their description. What I will say is news is updated every time you open the app, unlike some other reviewers saying it only updates every few days, and it brings you the news you would expect from the AP. my only complaint about this app is that the video feature on it unfortunately does not work, videos will play but they do not have sound at all, and occasionally when trying to play videos the app will crash. If they fix the videos on this app it will be much better.
Best news source I've found!
AP is by far the best organized, easiest to use, most thorough and most comprehensive mobile news source I've used on my phone. Intuitive categories from World News to US News to State News to my local town news -- all in one place! Quick loading. Includes photos. Changeable font size for easy reading. Plus it's "real news" -- not liberal or conservative or opinionated in any way -- just the facts! Like news USED to be reported. By REAL journalists. Darn near perfect!
Video feature frustrating
I like this app with the exception of the video feature. Previously, stories would contain only pictures; they now also contain videos. But the app doesn't give you the ability to choose between looking at one or the other. That wouldn't be an issue, but if you click on a thumbnail to gain access to the pictures, you may be directed to a video instead in which case a 30 second ad will play automatically. There's no way apparent way to skip the video or its ads, so you're forced to sit through an ad for a video you didn't even want to see. No good.
