Customer Reviews

Roll back latest update ASAP

I'm sorry, but the latest update is just absolutely atrocious. One of the primary reasons I use the app on a daily basis is because it's good at retrieving articles from specific sources I opt for, and always displays the source. Instead, the latest update has removed the news org logos entirely, and writes the source in low contrast gray font. Furthermore, I can't even find in the settings an option to choose my sources anymore. All the articles being shown to me now are all absolute drivel or tabloid click bait, and feature sources I explicitly elected not to be shown. After a minute's worth of scrolling in "Top News", I find nothing from outlets like Reuters, AFP, or the Associated Press; instead it's content from random blogs with headlines like "the results of this new research will change your life". Is this what the update notes call removal of "rarely used features"?

The news feed widget is also equally useless now. It used to be a list of news articles with sources, now it's just entirely an image with a headline and you need to tap next or previous, only to go through the same inane content as in the main app.

If this is the direction this app is headed, count me out, and I urge others to do the same.

Downright abysmal update

I'm a long time user. Nearly every good feature has been wiped clean with the latest update. The new layout is hard to read and navigate. Ads pop up everywhere. News now comes from all sources instead of just those selected. You are redirected to the sites to read news instead of within the app so it no longer feels seamless. The app is now much slower with more ads. Ratings are gone. Not sure who's bright idea it was to break everything!

What did you do? Horrible update!

Why? Why why why???? Your latest update redesign has made the app completely different... in a bad way! All my news tiles are gone... replaced with your "stock" ones that can't be moved. Refreshing the news feed bumps, reshuffles, and removes articles that I was reading. I get horrible ads now. you just went from being the best news app around to an unsubscribe option for me. Please bring back your old ap style - or I will no longer use your app.
