Loved the OLD app- Why change it?


Everything that I liked about the old app was taken away.... Why??! I agree with most of the recent negative reviews - My feedback - 1) where is the ability to have a dark background for reading at night? 2) I loved having news separated into categories (I don’t need entertainment “news” mixed in with science, world etc) Similar to a newspaper divided into sections, I used to know where I would likely find a news item I was looking for 3) there is too much wasted space between news items, even when I request “fewer pictures” 4) I used to be able to add my local newspaper info and get local alerts. 5) I see little difference between “Top News” and “My News”.. same stuff put in whatever random order AP selects. PLEASE understand that the reason I am unhappy with the new app is that it is getting in the way of accessing the incredible reporting and timely news that I have come to count on the AP for! There are so many important, breaking news items that I have read about first in my AP is the first place I look to see what is happening around the world. Please bring back the features we all loved in the old app, and keep the top-notch reporting. OK? Thanks.

The App Functions Great


This review is not about the content. All news is written from one world view or another and AP writes from their liberal slanting world view. The most important thing about any app is that it delivers content. I have tried tons of news apps and most of the others don’t deliver content without being cluttered by a multitude of advertisements. AP has ads, but they are positioned in less annoying positions and they do not have pop ups like CNN who pushes their own content via ads. CNN pushes their programming in ads; that's annoying. The second thing very noticeable at the AP app is the headlines of articles. They have far fewer tantalizing and sexually immodest headlines. On Fox News app for example, they tease with sexual innuendo in the headlines. We don’t need that when striving to practice personal holiness. I gave the AP app 5 stars because is delivers news and stays out of the way with ads, while aiming to keep the headlines, articles and photos modest.

Great New AP App

Douglas the II

This is a great new AP app. Think this one will be better than the old one. 5 Stars! And to anyone who says this is a new News site, you may be too young or just have been living under a rock! The AP has and always will be the regular source that your local news CNN FOX ABC NBC CBS news affiliates and partners and again your local news get all their news from the AP news wire. And yes they are well known for pictures and video that’s also where your local news get its news from. So don’t bash the Associated Press for the one who wrote such a horrible review about the APP no one made you download it and if you hate it so bad then delete it and just wait for your regular news site to bring you the same news that you can get 20 times faster than your local news does. This is a great app and for anyone in the news business knows that this is where the AP wire comes from and maybe speak up and let’s all support the AP!
