What's New in Version 2.7.0
Sticky Ad Trap
App isn't terrible - the content is a bit dumbed down and the editorials can be shrill and irritating like the comments under any news story on Facebook. The app is a brain and battery drain- you won't be growing new neurons to read the content nor will your phone enjoy it. The app is very heavy on ads and fighting through them to read any story is not smooth.I used the app for over a year- and then , like cigarettes and swearing, I. Just. Stopped. I will never have the time back I burned on the app and its jungle gym of ads to get to any story or the time I spent thinking there are nine year olds with brighter minds who can reason better than what I am reading in this USA Today app.
Very good app
I have been a USA Today reader since the paper first came out. I use this app every day. It's informative and easy to navigate. I agree with the other reviewers about too many ads in the body of the story, but also understand that they need to make money, and I really appreciate that this app is free. I do wish there was some way to keep from clicking on these ads so often though. Also would be nice to improve the offline reading experience.
Well just looking around at all the other news media out there I can't help but saying USA Today beats them all hands down., from reading the articles, pictures, video clips, to letting you know how the weather is going to be full video sometimes on breaking news, I don't clutter mi phone with just any news APP I haven't done it yet and I've no reason to start now. I got what works on my hands., Great Work USA TODAY.,!
