Getting there. Too many ads. Should have more control over your content and the ability to add blogs etc. Not enough user settings. Should offer better alerts. More layout options needed. If Google worked on this a bit more and made it more user friendly, I would even pay a small amount a month for this service. As it is it's very biased towards MSM articles and doesn't allow you to add your own news sources. Add this option and it's a five star app.
It's liberally biased by default, but it allows you to tweak the sources. I like how it gives you a summary of the important topics. You can tell there's some kind of smart algorithm going on to learn what you want to see. It currently offers no option for commenting on articles. If it had a robust comment system, it would be 5 stars.
The new design is waste of time. Go back to the old design where all the topics tabs were scrollable at the top. Also I don't care about the weather, I have a dedicated app for that, remove it because it just gets in the way. In conclusion, I am not a fan of this design when every thing was a swipe away in the old design, this new stuff just makes everything more complicated than it should be. Don't fix what ain't broke!
Fine news app. Google's best. Great for quick daily news updates. Problems: Full of ads! Also full of terrible news sources (but now finally has ability to remove these sources of click-bait & fake news). Can be improved. Apps with custom feeds (Feedly, Palabre, etc) are much better for serious news reading, and contain far fewer ads.
Add greater filters for clickbait/more granular control of topics. "This couple proves you can buy property and pay off $200,000 of student loan debt in 3 years" is not what I would consider to be US Education. Need to be able to report ads as offensive or misleading. Down from 3
Seriously, if this app jumps to the top while I'm scrolling through headlines one more time I'm going to loose it. Also if I have this set to download only on WiFi then why is it the biggest mobile data hog on my device? Otherwise I love this app. I've been using it for a while now and other than those two issues I think it's great. Fix it up and I'll update my review.
- Support for App Launcher Shortcuts, enabling quicker access to key tabs in the app
