Lack of presidential support.


Pro trump or anti trump it doesn’t matter. He is our president elected by the people of this nation and he deserves respect for the role we put him in. Obama never had criticism every day of his term. Never. That would have been unheard of. However trump cannot do right. Ever.
Would love to see more peaceful and supportive news regarding our president. Good with the bad.
And can we have just one picture of mr trump that is respectful and shows him as our great nations leader? It seems this site goes out if its way to post the most ludicrous photos it can find to make sure the headline shows absolutely no respect for our leader. Believe it or not there are trump supporters in America who would like to read positive news about our president and see him respected And when Obama was president republicans weren’t chomping at the bit waiting to read about his next screwup. Because they were never reported!!!!! I’m sure he was not perfect but nothing negative was ever said about him!!!!! Yet we judge mr trump so quickly. He has been given no chance by the media to succeed yet he has done great things even amidst the resistance he has had to face daily.

Come on USA Today. Start showing support for our president and printing positive stories too. They seem to be outnumbered.

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.

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.
