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.
Stop trying to shove things at me And let me read my magazine subscriptions like the New Yorker without navigating three menus every time I open the app. The magazine rendering is much less usable and more ugly than on iOS.
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!
Very liberal This app shoves left wing crap like a snow blower! This is why media is trash. I'm an American, I have many many guns. I stand for liberty, not division! We're the human race not races... And FYI, it was black people selling blacks to the whites in Africa! History lesson!!
Buggy version 3.5.3 This has worked well for me on many different phones for years. But now latest version 3.5.3 crashes constantly on Huawei Mate 7. I'm going back to 'News Republic' again.
