AP ruined the News!!

Wyoming Goldprospector

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!!

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.

Headline pictures are still too large, too few headlines


I just checked out the new app again, and it is still worse than the old app. It does not make sense to me that as we get bigger phones, app makers like AP seem to think they need to make the pictures even bigger. The whole idea of a bigger screen is to see more content, not just bigger content. They somehow think that more is to “enlarge” they pictures.
As I have pointed out before, simply put, you can browse 7 headlines with images in the old app, but the new app only allows 2 to 3 headlines, below a 1/5th of the screen top header line count of articles. (Not to mention the new humongous advertisement as the 4th one; I would gladly accept an ad in the old 7 header format).
Even with the images off (which I do not want to do), the new app only shows 4-5 headlines.
I am glad the old app is still populating. I have noticed delays recently though when I rarely open the pictures that go with an article. So I wonder how much linger they will keep it running. They did stop posting the warning that the app is going away soon. So maybe there is hope AP realizes the new app stinks and will keep the old interface.
