Everything works, but barely. My search function is entirely in Japanese and I can't tap on any articles in the "top news" section (the name of which I had to Google translate from a screenshot). The sign-in process is often buggy, having already had to reinstall and re sign-in about three times now. There was also no onboarding process whatsoever, and combined these things make for a pretty poor user experience. The app icon is cool, though.

Thank you for your review and we apologize for the inconvenience. NewsPicks app is currently designed to read Japanese news articles. If you want to read English articles, you could try Quartz ( or Quartz app (iOS) which is recently rebranded from NewsPicks English version.

Worked better than the new Quartz app, until they shut down the English version. Before that I was able to follow news sources one by one. The new Quartz app forces you to "create your feed" by picking 5 commenters. If you don't do that it won't remember any individual source you try to follow. Why would I want to get my news from 5 people I don't know instead of picking recognizable news publishers? Dark mode is also gone in the new Quartz. Too much haste for the sake of branding, bad user experience.

I couldn’t read even a single article before a popup comes up to propose a premium service. There web-bas3d service is great. So, it is a shame that the app does not provide the same service.
