What's New in Version 5.0.1
• Stability Enhancements
This app can be better
I love the stories and news feed, it nearly the best way to get updated on all the events from sports, news, entertainment, etc. but I have so many issues with this app.
1. There's a button where you can choose to show less stories about this topic (ex. The kardashians, I could care less if they bought a new mansion, I don't want to see those stories) so I press that button, the next day, I'll get more kardashian stories. I've pressed that button for other irrelevant topics but that button never works.
2. The timeline is always weird, it constantly switches the stories around. For instance, it showed at the top that "Lebron still hasn't made the decision yet" then two stories below it, it shows "Lebron is returning to Cleveland" it's not in chronological order. I still have stories showing from last week!
Comments section disabled
Yahoo used to be my number choice for news for two reasons. Aside from the good selection of stories I always found the comments section to be equally entertaining because it put a news event in "full perspective". However, this app doesn't allow a user to view the yahoo comments section of an article. In fact, none of the links in the app do. This makes their news boring. In fact, as of 2014 I've found many yahoo articles viewed from a mobile browser now disable the comments section entirely. Desktop computers are the only place where I can still view the comments section. It would be great if Yahoo brought this function back. Can't stand the censorship
This app makes my day
I luv reading news articles on this app everyday, several times a day. It keeps me informed about the important things going on in the world. The more I use it the more it presents me with articles that are of interest to me. I recommend this app as very newsworthy and up to date.
I would like to add that the latest update is awesome. It's so convenient to read an article in its entirety that is all in one place. Keep up the good work, Yahoo!
