  • Fairly worthless without article sharing

    Used to love this app but since article sharing was broken it’s not worth using. Please fix!
  • Buggy and unattractive

    The UI doesn’t seem to respond well to being resized when in split-view on an iPad. I’ve found that I have to manually refresh each view (pull to refresh) to get images to load or to get the story cards to resize. From a news design perspective, the headline and “interested in...” lines on the Local screen should not be close to the same size because they aren’t equally important. Overall, I find the visual design to be not very news-like at all. It’s quite bland, which can be fine if the content is allowed to be the “star” of the UI but this app keeps headlines and images so small that nothing stands out.
  • Article sharing is STILL broken

    A few releases ago, you broke article sharing - the little arrow in the top right corner when reading any article. When you press the button, NOTHING happens. Still you have failed to address it. How bad is quality assurance and testing that this release was published with the article sharing feature completely inoperable? Was this even tested before release?!? Additionally, to my great disappointment, there is still no text-only mode like in Microsoft's excellent Bing app. Please attempt to close the huge gap between this app and the competition and add this one feature - it makes reading so much more pleasant when you can set font size and colors to your taste. Even the Safari and Firefox mobile browsers offer this feature. After all this time, It is still not possible to read many articles dues to pop-up overlays that are impossible to close - PC Magazine is a perfect example. Please fix this!
  • Unusually bad Google app

    Messy and poorly organized. Ads are often obstructive and difficult to get away from. Sometimes,have to crash out to back out. Google, why did you make it like this?
  • Horrible update

    The "Headlines" section is a waste, it's just a single page containing all the stories broken down in the other sections. Share link exists in this version but no longer functions. It appears the app was updated again today. Share button is still not operational.
  • Share option must be fixed!

    I am now bring this app down to 1 star. There is NO excuse for not fixing the share feature so we can read articles later, share, etc. I cannot use this app in IOS until it’s fixed. While I have been using this app daily for about two years, a few things are problematic, especially in latest updates: 1. You can't share or save articles anymore - this needs to be fixed ASAP! 2. The new tabs at top are ok (not great, but livable) but then adding tabs bottom, it cuts down viewing space too much. It goes away when you go into a section, but when viewing summary page, really annoying. 3. The app needs to support subscriptions so there is no paywall for sites we already pay for. My fix in the past has been to click on "share" and open it in browser, but that ability is currently broken. 4. The sources seem to be shrinking. What I loved about this app was easy way to see multiple sources on same news story. The diverse sources of the past are getting too narrow. I want to see links to conservative and liberal (and in between) for more stories. 5. The format seems to be broken on a lot of sites. It is really hard to read some of them, and again, the share option is broken, so can't just use it to open in browser. 6. Overall, this can be a great news app and as I said, I am devoted to it because it is still better than most news aggregators but it is slipping and needs to get back on track. The format and share issues are getting to the point where I can't use it anymore. FIX IT ALREADY! IT HAS BEEN BROKEN FOR A FEW WEEKS!
  • Decent app - crazy amount of data usage

    This app serves up good news from good sources and handles specific topics I’m interested in well. However the app uses an absurd amount of data for what it is. It’s just news articles and it’s using almost 1GB a month over my LTE. This is a lot considering I use WiFi at work and Home.
  • Good News Feed

    The app is visually clean and so far the reporting is balanced. Just got the app but it looks and reads well.
  • My hourly news fix

    The original title was my daily news fix, but I just realized I use it a lot during the day. The news alerts are the best thing since sliced bread.
  • It's okay, but

    Really prefer to Google news in Safari. App is mediocre and lacks personalization I prefer. Sports is not news to me.
