Deserves the Fifth Star
Typical of the high standards of reporting for which the Associated Press has always been known, its notifications are timely and excellent! However, on some occasions, when one of notifications is selected, and the screen switches over to the app itself, there is no story connected with the link (...although it may subsequently show up). I suspect the reason for the delay may be that the particular item is so new, the related article is still in the process of being written, uploaded, etc.
While I could have given the app four stars as opposed to five because of such relatively-infrequent situations, its overall superior quality warrants the fifth star.
Like it but?
I have this on my iPad-Pro, & my iPhone6+.. Love it so much, but am having problems getting daily news up-dates on my iPad-Pro News up-dates only happen every other day or so? My iPhone6+ seems to up-date hourly. I've been using this app for more than a year with no problem. Just a few weeks ago, I traded in my old iPad-2 for this new IPad-Pro. the Apple store transferred all my data over to my new iPad-Pro thats when my problems started with the AP-News app.. I uninstalled your app & reinstalled it. Still no daily or hourly up dates??? Apple store can't find any reason for this?? It would be nice to get this resolved!
Really Want to Give 5 Stars, But...
Speaking here specifically about the app functionality, and setting aside the fantastic, unbiased, world-wide coverage we've come to know and expect from such a great institution... (I'd give the journalism 5 out of 5, but that's not the question here).
The notifications are infuriating! Every other news app, from the NY Times to our pitiful Columbus Dispatch, links to the story when clicking on the notification. The AP app just takes you to the AP home page, which often either doesn't have the story available at all, or has it listed under a completely different headline. It's so frustrating that I've stopped clicking on the notifications - I'll just wait for the NY Times to shoot me one that I can click through to read.
This is a simple fix, and when you make it I promise you will dramatically increase your Daily Active User count and average time users spend in the app.
Good luck, and thank you!! Please keep up the good journalism.
