AP ruined the News!!
This is new agency is worse than CNN and I'm being bias. Photos take up more than the actual news article in the layout. The "My News" is junk which I don't care for it & then The news sections is gone unlike the mobile version where I only want to see top news, us news, & oddities. Who cares about entertainment, lifestyles or sports, that's not news. With this app you have to scroll down forever to even find a funny article or something that's really important. Not with this new version.
The night mode is gone too, I like being able to view in night mode 24hrs a day, it makes it easier on my eyes. The ads are extremely aggressive, if I wanted to see ads I'd turn on the tv and watch the 6 o'clock news. It's not customizable like the AP Mobile and it crashes constantly. Currently using iOS 10.1.1
Unlike the AP Mobile app which now seems to be not updating anymore news articles was much better than this piece of junk app. AP Mobile was my only news source to get the news & fact checks. I deleted this app because it's time to go back to the 1800's to fetch a newspaper, oh wait I can't do that because of news agency like you & social media have ruined it. I've had AP Mobile from day one and now that it's gone you lost another user, thanks for nothing AP!!
Awful -original is much better
Too bad they will be doing away with a MUCH friendlier app than this replacement. The new app does not present the stories as well organized as the previous app. It's like someone said: "Gee, it's time to update the app"- and totally blew it. Where I expect a written story, I get videos. Where is the news? Lots of junk. There is no way to have white letters on a black background so that you can read the news easier at night. This is a complete dud. I thought it was a joke, but I keep getting messages that the old mobile app will be going away soon. Did anyone even beta test this with a broad spectrum of people? Seems like the techies/marketing people got together and decided "Gee, people don't really want to read the news in an efficient way; guess we will dream up how they want to read/view the news without consulting them." I have a LOT of respect for the AP reporters; apparently the developers of this app do not. Nor do they have respect for AP News readers. Disgusting. I will NOT be using such an unfriendly app. If I could give zero stars, that's what it would get. As they say:"If it ain't broke, don't 'fix' it."
No categories, no customization
Ironically, the old AP Mobile app is still better than every new version of this app. The news is no longer presented as easy to choose categories like the old version, instead, the user is forced to scroll through a long useless list of unorganized articles. *(the categories list is hidden in a tiny button in upper right part of screen, the old version actually presented the news as easy to navigate categories, not hide them). I love the Associated Press, but I prefer to be the person in control of what I choose to read, not what an algorithm chooses. I tried to use this newer app, but I find the old AP Mobile app is easier to use and navigate. The AP is my #1 source for news I trust and their new app still delivers that news, albeit in a very clumsy and unorganized way, rather than the much more polished presentation of the older AP Mobile app. *Update* The advertisements are larger now, my news feature still doesn't work (doesn't matter what I choose in edit mode, it never displays my choices). Still not easy to navigate between categories.
