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.
Please update the system notification bar I use this app regularly, but what I dislike about it is that the system notification bar is still black. This makes the app look old and outdated, and for such an otherwise amazing looking app, it just drags the whole experience down. Please update the app so it changes the system notification bar to be transparent, similar to how it looks when you first open the Google Play Store.
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.
Good, but not great. If you complain about unwanted content, just handpick your sources and then use only My Library. Easy! / Night mode would be great. Also pictures in articles are often just thumbnails so impossible to view properly.
Magazines lag on all my devices Reading a digital magazine should be a smooth fluid experience. Sadly that is not the case. If it was just my tablet then I would blame it on having an older device. There is no reason I should be waiting for the next page of a downloaded magazine to load on my S7. Of other providers can offer a smooth reading experience on my devices then surely Google can as well.
Freezes Be reading an article, then it freezes up and get a error message. Have a nexus 5x, should be able to handle it without a problem.
