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.
Pop up ads have begun
Good news source but pop up ads after every 4 or 5 stories. Now the ads want access to my Location and lock up the app occasionally when I refuse. Also video stories with preceding video ads lock up after the ad: Great- I have to watch the ad but still don't get the story. AP needs serious work on restricting ads to ones that actually work.
I find I can get all the news, both local and national, that I need. I am getting the news before it shows up in my newspaper the next day. Now I can save money and not renew the paper.
