Very liberal This app shoves left wing crap like a snow blower! This is why media is trash. I'm an American, I have many many guns. I stand for liberty, not division! We're the human race not races... And FYI, it was black people selling blacks to the whites in Africa! History lesson!!
Cannot remove sources google forces on you The app has a highlights section, which is great at first. It uses an algorithm to determine what you want to read based on a library you setup and what you click. Lately I have been getting terrible sources in the mix though and there is NO way to mute or remove these sources. I do not want Zero Hedge and Vox and all of that other garbage to show up. My library has defined New York Time, Forbes, wall Street Journal, etc.. but more than half of the articles in the mix are these terrible click bait sites.
Widget provides old news This used to be my go-to news app after after Google replaced Currents. Now the widget updates are abysmal, and sources seemed to have narrowed of their own volition. I agree with others who have mentioned that are too many pay-wall news sources. I'll be looking for a replacement such as Feedly.
Buggy Newsstand works ok most of the time. However it encountered an error on my tablet and will not work. I cannot even read magazines offline that I specially downloaded to read offline. Seems it is due to using the wifi connection on the train, because I had the same issue on my phone. However newsstand then worked when I switched wifi off. Rubbish. The new version is still rubbish - continually crashes and forgets it has downloaded my magazines so I cannot read them offline (the whole idea of downloading them) when it detects a wifi signal it thinks it can connect to. Deserving of no stars, but I have to give it at least one.
Biased Liberal "News" If you are a liberal then this is up your alley but if not then it will turn you off with just a few article titles into it. If it was un-biased it would be a great app but sadly it is not. There is no such thing in news anymore as being un-biased and objective of the subject being talked about.
Annoying This app makes it insanely difficult to read real news and I find myself blowing over all the suggest news stories. Google seems to collect data on what I find entertaining and feed me back that news on my entertainment interests, but it is not what I want to read. What I want to read is relevant world and US news as well as articles from the list of journals saved in my library. I now find myself having to open the app and navigate to each journal for stories, rendering the widget absolutely useless.
