From 5 star app to deleted.


Buzzfeed News started out as a clean app with straightforward headlines and nice summaries, but now it is a little too biased. I prefer news stories to be more centered and objective rather than a predictable lean in one direction or the other.

I deleted the app because my Apple Watch kept giving me updates even after I had turned them off. Then I deleted the app and I received another notification, which seemed impossible! I finally figured out the mystery, I think that BuzzFeed News had automatically liked itself on Apple News. If you're having issues with unwanted notifications, search for BuzzFeed News in your Apple News and click the heart icon at the top.

Needs text size adjustment!!!!


I am impressed by buzzfeed news and like to read your articles. However reading with this app on my iPhone is impossible because the font size is just too tiny. The solution is a font size slider for the text of articles or something in the settings that lets you change that. Lots of text heavy apps have this option. I also tried to click email us feedback but it gave me an error that said I need to have my mail client configured. I can email from other apps no problem.
Please add a text size adjustment because I want to use this app!!!

Very buzzfeed, very good.


The articles are written by buzzfeed, there’s no way around that. But the app is beautifully set up, customize-able, very user friendly and the alerts are useful. I appreciate that I can be notified of things I’m watching out for and get a snippet of what’s going on all around the world. If anything, this app is an indication that buzzfeed might be the next big news media outlet to replace baby boomer era media. Once buzzfeed staffers improve on their writing and investigative techniques, this could be the perfect news source.
