Very great app. One thing to fix. Every time I open breaking news alerts it goes to a story from 2011. The other day it was a breaking news alert about Speaker Boehner I opened it and it was a news story about Scott Walkers recall. Others have included Mitt Romney accepting his party's nomination and Tim Geithner staying on a Treasury Sec through election.
I would rate it lower if I could All I want is fair news. The facts and nothing else but every article feels like it written by a paid member of the Democratic party. I've had the app for 4 days and I've seen 3 articles about the problems with Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Chris Christie. The other articles are about how great Elizabeth Warren is. How can I trust Politico news based on the stories they publish? Pathetic.
Updates never work Whenever I recieve notifications about updates, the link always brings me to a different story and I am unable to find the original article that I was interested in. This is becoming a problem and I will soon be looking for new political sources if this is not fixed. Fine app for keeping up quickly with political events that are not covered by most news sources. Should be used as a source, not THE source because there is bias as is to be expexted.
Great app for a great site This is the app to get. Politico, if you are reading this, get that "tablet" app out of google play. This one is great. Four stars because the ads could be done less intrusively. Really like it on my nexus 10
Awful I have never loved this app, but I enjoyed reading the left wing perspective from time to time. For the last 6 months, the app loads new stories, but when I click to read, they never load. Ever. I once waited 10 minutes just to see. Nothing. The screen stayed white. Its annoying. So I am giving up on this P.O.S. app and deleting it, finally. Half a year of not loading basically tells me that someone in the Politico IT department ought to lose their job. Terrible.
Too biased Very biased, too many euphemisms to protect the democrats. Antagonistic towards conservativism, this is not the best option for people looking for unbiased news. For instance, in an article published today by By Burgess Everett & Jennifer Haberkorn, I read, "... after a series of controversial videos have shown Planned Parenthood employees discussing the donation of fetal tissue." It's not a donation if you don't know you're giving it, that's called stealing. It's also not a donation if you're being paid.
