This app just takes you thru google chrome when you click on an article. It would be better if they were to stay within the app. What is the point of an app with just a bunch of links to other news websites? I give it 2 stars. 1 because it is free and 1 for making suckers out of me and so many other people. Ha!
Good app but content providers suck. I had really high expectations of this app. my expectations started to dwindle when I noticed that most of the content providers want you to sign up on their site to be able to view the news articles. this is a no go for me. The providers are turning this into a pop-up machine. Google, please find better news providers, preferably ones that do not want your location and to sign up to read content. thank you!
I'm disappointed I love Google News, it's part of my entire day. But I really dislike the auto-refresh that seems to just randomly refresh the entire news lineup. It makes me dislike the app because I like to read throughout the day, I scan over different articles, chose one I want to read over another but still plan to come back later and read that other one... But when I come back, the app refreshes and that other headline is gone... Tried submitting feedback through the app, but it just got an error...
Stopped updating on my Nexus 7.... no new stories. Have tried to clear cache and data, and reinstalled app. Problem is with sync... all my other Google sync apps work fine. I've had this problem for over a week now and cannot fix it!
A godsend for driving in La, Ca I got annoyed at the seemingly endless demands for updates, hence my 4 stars, but functionality-wise it gets 5. It works well! I use it daily if not many times a day as I drive from home in Hollywood to grad school at CSUN. The realtime traffic situations are crucial. That "faster route available" option has saved me a lotta time. I just wish they'd go back to how they used to show alternate routes in grey.
Didn't know this app existed... great app! Never knew this app existed, until today when it appeared pre-installed on Cyanogen OS 12S. Never got into a habit of checking "Play Magazines" as UI was a bit wasteful, but this one is right for me. Considering Flipboard massacred the best news app - Zite, this can potentially be a replacement for me. Will spend some more time with this app and see if my opinion changes in a week or two.
