  • Horrible for reading magazines

    I loved this app until I tried downloading a magazine. Magazines are very slow to load. Each page takes between 10-20 seconds to load. I spoke with a Google rep who explained this is because the magazines do not actually download to your device. They are cached. I have read magazines on the KIndle and ZInio apps and never experienced this long of a load time.
  • Adapts to the news you like

    This app is amazing, I've been using it for two days now and it has already adapted to the kinds of news I like to read and will only show me articles that it thinks I'll like. This should be your number one news app.
  • It's okay

    PROS: You get the full story, links and pix as in the original publication without having to click on links or 'globes' as in other news apps. Cons: Stories remain in the list regardless of having read it or not. At the least it should dim the article so you know it's been read. This also leaves your reading list painfully and needlessly long. It is irritating enough that I'm going to stop using this otherwise nice app.

    It's really great how you can combine your interests (no matter how esoteric they may be!) and the top news stories seamlessly.

    Why can't it be smart enough to not show articles that I have no subscriptions?!? Annoying each time I go to Washington post that I need to subscribe.
