I want to read "der Spiegel" and other german news. I want to read in english and german. Preferably Russian too. You sure will have to give us more options; one specific option I'd like is this; ban news by the name of the writer. I hate how the newsworld is completely biased against Trump and obviously I dont want to only read Pro Trump articles, but unbiased news. The ugly, the bad and the good. But I want to decide for my self and not let someone decide what i have to think!
Another example of Google's inability to execute properly. The 4:3 screen aspect ratio for reading magazine is just outright stupid. Google if you don't know how to make a proper magazine reader, just try to copy Zinio. Besides, magazines are more expensive then other platforms.
As always with Google, this is a spectacularly well-designed app, beautiful to look at and use. But the "My News" section is awful. It feeds up reams of junk that I don't care about, and can't get rid of. Frankly, I don't want Google to be "suggesting" to me what I should read, and using up my data to feed me stuff I don't want. Very limited ability Worse, to edit the content. Finally, I can't get it to recognise subscriptions that I have purchased elsewhere (Washington Post, the Economist). For me, that makes the app unusable. Fix these flaws and the app gets 5 stars, hands down.
THIS IS THE WORST APP I HAVE EVER BEEN FORCED TO USE. App does not recognize subscriptions from other sources or subscriptions associated with non Gmail accounts! I cannot download the magazine stand alone apps because Google is forcing them all through this newstand and they do not work. I even called Google play customer service and she said she could not help because I do not have subscriptions. DUH! That is what I called about. I can only download one previous issue and it is not even the most current! No way to get previous issues. Worse still, I added the magazine to my "library" but when I click on the icon for it, I get newsfeeds for all these articles and not the one old issue it downloaded. Please go back to letting us access our subscriptions via the magazine's app. This should at least be an option until you fix the other subscription issues. WORST SERVICE EVER
Update: Recommendations/ preferences started working. I'm not sure but the issue with them not working might've been that I had 2 Google accounts on the phone. I removed my secondary account a few days back and noticed today that all those pesky news sources I had failed in blocking were not showing up. Went into Preferences and, lo, all of them were listed. For context, it used to be blank.
I don't care about football! I swear Google are tying to indoctrinate me for some reason. Football is in my blocked list, I never search Google for it, I say "recommend less stories like this" to every story, yet I still get "so and so is transfering to such and such a club" - "we think you might be interested in this story". I am not and never will be!! Will be moving on soon if it doesn't get better. Shame cos the app is decent.
