With increasing frequency, the news is out-of-date or won't appear at all. There's often a mess of errors and a complete lack of clarity due to editing stories for length. I dislike the overuse of tabloid-esque headlines, which are often inappropriate due to the gravity of the story, and again lack clarity. Like others, I would enjoy some customization; and also the ability to save stories.
List of stories scrolls one way. When you start reading a story, hang on as the app auto refreshes and pops you to the top. Don't remember where you were? No problem just start scrolling through the entire lusty again, and again. Learn to write decent CODE, or actually use your own app!
I've tried numerous news apps over the years, but this one is the best. News twice a day, plus a bunch of little extras to check out if you want to find out more about the topic. I don't miss out cuz I can still see breaking news notifications on my watch and cell.
The app's news curators have been increasingly partisan with the way stories are angled. Ruining the app. Even the fun fact at the end of a digest is now slanted a certain way, sometimes.
I love the app, HOWEVER, for whatever reason, my digests are not being updated automatically like they should be. So I have to do it manually. It's very frustrating. I've made sure that I have my digests set to update correctly, yet they're not updating at the times I specified. Usually, they're not updating at ALL. Please fix this! UPDATE: It's been over a year since that last complaint, yet NOTHING has been done and nothing has changed, so I changed my rating to reflect this. NO ONE from Yahoo cared to address this problem. I'm still receiving all of my digests one day late.
It's a good way to keep up with news stories, BUT, all the news stories are liberal views from liberal news sources and are all biased. It's as obvious as just reading the title of each story.
