App Reviews

  • Needs dark mode

    By senseiTX
    Blinding white, needs dark mode setting the old one has.
  • Load time is too long

    By Rion22
    I agree with some other reviewers here. I love the app, but the wait times to load an article is unbearable sometimes! I literally go to google and search the headlines I’m interested in to skip the 30 second load time. This is on an iPhone X on WiFi of 120mbps... I’m guessing it’s an app issue. Maybe an Apple issue... I dunno, but I wish it would get fixed!
  • Slow and too large pictures

    By CharlieS212
    Very slow in responding and the pictures shown with the articles are huge. No longer can you view a list of news articles but now you must scroll through large images to view what news is available. I prefer the old app or the website for news and cannot use this app. IMHO a news app should list the news with small or no images until an article is selected.
  • Bold & beautiful, but...

    By DavidtheWriter
    ...the new Google News doesn’t allow you to scan headlines or stories as quickly as the old version. So I keep both versions on my phone now.
  • The video is stupid!

    By yarzer
    I really liked the old app WITHOUT the video. At rhe very least, provide an option to disable it in the preview list. If I want to watch video, I'Il make the decision to do so. Enabling video by default requires a higher end device to display it well.
  • unusable

    By Nygvuser
    the new version of the app with its big photos and large print is all but unusable - very little info is surfaced, a lot more clicking is required etc. I used the old app and I’m about to uninstall this one - stopped using completely

  • more frustrating than Apple News

    By bostnlegalfan
    Slow. Doesn’t update. Personal news feed with week old stories. It’s gone. I’ll check back later, but it’s more frustrating than Apple News right now.
