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 This makes the app look old and outdated, and for such an otherwise amazing looking app, it just drags the whole experience down.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.
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.
Fail to access Time subscription Ask to verify Time subscription but always fail while on ipad my magazines access and work great..and I'm even not able to read previous mags..what's going on...extremely upset
Duplication of functions I like Newsstand, it helps me keep up with what's important to me. But with this, Currents AND News and Weather ALL fulfilling the same function. Too many Google apps that do the same job. Time to simplify and merge!
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.
