I have to agree with some of the other reviewers, the new UX is not an improvement. I like Google Newsstand and use it quite a bit but it was the UX of news 360 that got me to use it as my primary news reader and the widget that I use on my home screen. And now it looks like you're just going to make me choose between Google Newsstand or Google Newsstand 2. I honestly would have given it a five-star rating had you not started messing with the originality of your UX. The horizontal swipe allowed you to focus more on a couple of Articles at a time rather than a vertical stream of endless articles. So I am making another plea for you to please stay with your original UX because it is just that...original. I must give praise however of the content that your algorithm compiles and offers, I think it is better than other news aggregates. The Articles seem more fascinating with your app.
Best news app, but widget needs more options. News 360...download 3.60 MB. How did you manage that. 😂 Guess I did not get lucky with the new Home screen UX though. Still only one widget available? Vertical flip is lagging and really not a great way to flip through stories. Wonderful news agregator. Seems to always have the articles I'm interested in. Layout of app, Navigation is superb. Again minus stars because of the widget. Should have more than one option. The flip card approach is clunky and has to be made full size huge. How about a swipe left to right for stories?
Found this app by accident and is now an equal tie with Flip board S's my news portal. Super quick at loading articles with a killer screen reader feature, my only negative is you cannot choose a specific news feed. If it had that it would be a clear winner.
As of 12/30/17. New layout. Terrible. Looks like Google News Mobile. If I wanted Google News, I have that. Why do you keep trying to ruin a great app? Leave it as it was.
I used to love this app, with big beautiful photos that flipped from right to left and allowed your drill down into the story. Now its a vertical feed that look like Google News and is much harder to navigate. Please go back to the old format!
Lots of choices but keeps putting in opinion pieces and conspiracy news from right leaning news I have never heard of. One "news" article said Obamas birth certificate was a forgery which is a lie. App needs to do better at weeding out intentionally false news.
