About 60% useless. Frequently fails to load articles. Eager to load views I have no use for. I miss Currents. That actually worked.
Was good until it keeps shutting down itself! I'm reading then the unfortunately Google play has stopped sign. Happened multiple times already so for now 2 stars is all it gets.
It would great if they provide podcasts.
It just ruined a perfectly good app. I had my library as the main screen. Now it's buried down in an inconvenient place. The new navigation makes no sense. The navigation with the bottom bar is horrible. I was able to go left and right between topics. Now I need to do 4 taps to switch between topics. If Google wants us to just read the "for you" feed, it can remove the bottom bar and all the complicated settings of this app.
Extremely biased as far as politics go. Regardless of your stance on politics I believe we should support our government. This app leans strongly on the side of opposing the Republican party, which in my opinion only divides our country. But if you're into hearing the New York Times and cnn bash on the President then this app is for you. I've never even seen an article from a Republican supportive news affiliate like fox on here.
I like how the app lets me quickly browse through headlines. However, the way how it manages recommendations needs improvement. We should be able to tell the recommendations specifically what we like and dislike instead of marking individual stories and hoping we see less of the topic; for example, if I don't want to see political news as much, I should be able to just type "politics" in a "dislike" category. Other than that, the app is great.
– Improved support for slide shows in articles
– Bug fixes and performance improvements
