Dec '17: Cannot delete added sections, instead it duplicates or even triplicates 'em. Weird - this is how Google releases its app without testing. Hence the downgrade to 3 stars. Sept '16: Never thought I would like this but its become quite a handy & quick option to get news from several sources in & out of India, at least.
Provides many links to sites where I can't see the article without paying! And it won't let me blacklist sources to prevent them from being shown over and over. Completely ruins the user experience. Google could easily fix this but I'm sure they don't because they are getting kickbacks. Making money is fine but not when it's done in such a gratuitous way that ruins the user experience. Shame on you Google.
Love the app. Daily user since 2016; however, lately some articles are not loading when clicked. The link will route to a separate page, but the page is blank. If I click "see more" to see related articles and open a related article the webpage loads as normal. It's been happening for the past week or so. There is no common denominator (i.e., a common source, such as only AP articles won't load) between the news articles that aren't opening up. The issue is happening across various news sources, so I'm not sure what the deal is. Any help for this issue is greatly appreciated. The app really deserves a 5 star rating, but until the issue is fixed....2 stars it is.
Nice and dark! I love apps with dark themes because the usual bright white of Google hurts my eyes. This app works great overall. Two limitations: it seems impossible to altogether eliminate sources that you hate (e.g. Huff Post). If I remember correctly, I was able to reduce it but not eliminate it. Secondly, it could use a more customizable widget, so I can make it much larger. At least the widget is also dark capable.
This has been my favorite news app for a long time, but I'm really getting tired of having the layout change every few months with no way to modify it in the settings. I love different layouts, but let me choose the one that works best for my device. It also seems like a bunch of sites don't load after this last update. It would be nice to have a settings option to automatically load articles in the browser by default.
Keep deleting titles but they keep returning. Keeps freezing because of unnecessary show news option at bottom. Still no option to remove headlines, I'll need anti depressants soon if they don't allows us to remove or customise it. Absolutely disgusting that google are ramming rubbish down are throats. Still seeing articles that require a login/ subscription. No option to filter out. Zenfone 2 cm13.
