Not customizable I really gave this app a fair shot, and looked for ways to try to adjust the settings but I really don't like that there is no way to adjust the categories of news. I'm trying to stay informed about world/us news , and I couldn't care less about sports. I would much rather receive multiple news stories rather than basketball scores twice a day. Every other news app allows you to adjust what stories you'd like to read, this should too. I'll be uninstalling. I do think that it is otherwise a good app.
Great idea and design, not so good interpretation This could be Yahoo's saving grace, as it functions better than just about any other news viewer on Google Play. The idea of shortened, detailed information instead of huge articles on our phones is really appealing. The problem here rests in the fact that it can't really be customized. It encompasses whatever it deems 'Digestible' and some topics may not be of interest. If they could allow users to chose specific topics it would be five stars.
The fastest way to read the news Honestly just a brilliant app and a really easy and fun way to read the news. I especially like that they encourage you to read all the articles in order to get the Fact of the Day. Plus if you look around, there's an Easter egg hidden in the app! The only thing I could complain about is that its summaries occasionally have a left-leaning bias.
Poor writing Whoever is feeding this app stories they're not doing their job well enough - stories are often with spelling errors and typos including in headlines. For twenty or so stories offered in a day that's just unacceptable. Also your recent political stories are overwhelmingly pro-Brexit - please try to offer balanced views.
TOO BIASED I like the lay out but the news on the app, is not transparent. Europe gets most coverage. As a person residing outside Europe, I find this FAR too limiting and biased. For those with a similar problem, Al Jazeera is your friend
Short & Precise Articles The articles are not long and drawn out. They are short and to the point. This is much appreciated since it's really not necessary to repeat a paragraph that has been previously written. ☺ The only problem is often it won't allow me into the news site. 😕
Better video player.
