Not really sure what happened

Not really sure what happened (as described below), but I haven’t hardly used the app since the update. It seems kind of ok, but I’ve started to get my news from other sources, and when I open USA Today, there is nothing I haven’t already read! Am taking it off the system for that reason, and for the lack of support.

I had been reading USA Today for years. A while back I noticed the news was not changed, in USA Today. I figured it was me. It has not updated in quite a while. When I started looking into the issue, I saw the Apple store didn’t think I had the app! I went into USA Today, and found an address to request support from. Support NEVER responded. Since there is no support for this once fine product, I got a new copy of it. New version seems to work. SUPPORT might get a lesson from that. I gave the stars I did as an average of how great the product was, and the fact that I was never asked to upgrade the app. And SUPPORT seems non-existent for the app. Will keep the new version long enough, at least, to see if it works, and works well. I have never had an experience like this. And I will bet Support never did either, since there is NO SUPPORT for this product.

You’re liberally bias, I have no issue with bias if you state it. Stop acting objective

I’m independent and like objective news sources. That’s increasingly hard to find these days, other outlets I appreciate because they state their leanings. I wish the news didn’t lean a certain way, but at least they put the proper disclaimer on it. Like a movie properly rating itself so you understand what you are about to view. You and other news outlets should strongly consider this course of action. It’s disingenuous and misleading to act objective while simultaneously pushing an obviously liberal/progressive agenda. Your editorial board and contributors are liberal leaning at the very least. I’ve seen you post opposing opinions, but overwhelmingly the opinions expressed here are liberal and it doesn’t take a conservative or trump supporter to see that, of which I am neither. I personally feel we all have a bias of some sort, but some are more willing to address and correct it than others. I personally actively try to dismantle my own arguments regularly to see if they can withstand basic scrutiny. Perhaps your network should consider doing the same, or simply state your bias. That would be a good first step toward better serving the people who consume your content.

Good app, irresponsible journalism

I've used the USA Today app as my primary, and often only news app on my phone since about 2012. Overall it's a good news app, the front page has good variety and I think you can customize that, although I never have.

However, in the last few years, their coverage of mass shooters has been completely wreckless and irresponsible. They focus so much on the shooter, quasi-glorifying/justifying their actions usually based on one or more clichés seemingly picked from a hat: bullied in high school, played violent video games, had depression, parents were divorced, all things that millions of people across the country deal with and don't kill people in the process.

I have unfortunately now replaced the USA Today app on my phone because of this type of coverage. I say unfortunately because when they aren't reporting on the next mass shooting, it's a good app. But the above reasons have finally turned me off too far. I hope enough people raise this concern to them so they will stop bringing so much attention to the shooter instead of the victims. We already know that glorifying these people in the media only encourages more copy cats.
