Limited Functionality If you don't live in the US, Canada or the UK, you have no use of this app. Period. I use Aviate Launcher, which is excellent, and also had a good experience with Yahoo News' web app, so I decided to give it a go. Actually, I gave it a go twice. Terribly disappointed. I live in Greece and I find most news stories irrelevant, using the international version. Beautifully designed though. Excellent UI. Uninstalled nevertheless. Hope for more.
Circa replacement When Circa announced that it stops its own news aggregation, I installed this app to replace it. So far it's good, but there is a huge feature missing: Breaking news notifications. I want to receive all my news from this app and not install a separate one for up-to-the-minute breaking news. Also, why can't we choose the notification hours in the international version, but only in the US one?
A Fantastic & Simple App Five stars, after fixing the old orientation issue.
Does Not Send Notifications I used to love this app. Not any more. It just stopped sending notifications a few months ago. If I remember to open it and read the news it will send a notification the next day. Then it stops again. If Yahoo can fix this, then this app becomes one of the best out there. Please fix it!
Very good with one annoyance. I really like this app with one exception: when scrolling through the stories it likes to jump to the ring at the bottom telling me how many I have read. I'm keenly aware of how many I've read since I'm the one doing the reading. This annoyance comes up every time I engage with the app so 100% of the time there is something distracting me from the content.
Good news summary Overall a well designed app with good news and follow up information for a deeper understanding of the issues. Needs some offline capability (ie at least current articles and headlines should be available whether online or offline) to make it near perfect.
