Love the update (and finally a web version!), however would be nice if we can remove news because (1) we're not interested, (2) we're done reading or (3) the article is just too old (I'm seeing articles from 2013!). Right now, the only option we have is to "hide" articles from a specific provider (e.g. CNN/BBC) or "hide" an article regarding a specific topic. Would also love it if the news can be read to us (very useful as an alarm, or when we are driving...)
Too much clutter. Simple design has been the Hallmark of Google's design ethos, untill now. Unlike the book app where I can get instant access to my library here I have to wade through layers of stuff I don't care about. Please let us set the experience we are wanting. I'd be happier if it would always open to my library of magazines.
Vastly improved with last update This app used to freeze often, but the latest update seems to have fixed that. The aesthetic improvements are excellent. The app is fast and responsive, well organized, and a great interface. I use this app daily. The app finally provides the long overdue option to block stories from the highly biased sources that the app editors seem to prefer. I was beginning to think that a better name for this app would be "Commentary Stand" rather than Newsstand.
OK GOOGLE...Why did u disappoint us w/ ur latest update? The previous UI was terrific. I was pleasantly pleased with daily use. Now, the latest update is clean but it seems you've cleaned away the user experience. This update does not seem to be as easy on the eyes as previous versions. Please quickly fix this... pretty please. Ty!
Don't fix it if it ain't broke. Wtf Google! Your ui designs are always awesome. Until now... Being able to swipe right to switch category made Newsstand so easy to use, now if I want to choose a category I have to tap library and then tap what category or news company to choose from then scroll through, or alternatively I can just through the main page called "highlights" which is poorly organised, often putting the things I'm most interested in at the bottom... *sigh* C'mon Google, you can do better, change the ui back.
Electronic magazines, who's idea was that? There are several features missing. Option to zoom or change how much of an article can be viewed at a time, new article/unread counter on subscription overview, custom adding links, integration with Google Now, better widget, compressed images for faster GSM/UMTS article download, more subscription sites, favourites list, dark theme and text size change option. Much better overview needed, and faster refresh rate. Also unending ads. And the new UI is terrible.
