I'm one of those viewers who misses the Yahoo Digest format. Twice a day you presented the top trending news stories in an easy to read manner. Now you are exactly like Flipboard in your format but not as organized. I have to wade through news ' categories' hoping to find the most relevant and not everyone has that sort of time. If bottom line profit or some other reason has caused your format change, PLEASE at least add the old top ten stories category back in. Otherwise I am not interested in this app.
Digest was my fav news app cause it gave me the feed that I want to know most in the most simplest way possible so that I can read it quickly during my office lunch breaks daily. In fact it was so easy and simple I downloaded it for my mum as well. This newsroom is absolute rubbish and doesn't catch my eye at all. Uninstalling it right after this review on both our phones and tablets
I prefer the previous Yahoo Digest by far. I had always had the option to access "Newsroom" but was so unhappy with the layout, sensationalized stories forced into my feed, outdated, repetitive content, I always regretted having accidentally opening it in the first place. I'm so sorry I will be losing Yahoo Digest. It was one of my routine daily, morning and evening news sources.
Dont ask for peoples phone numbers to signup. I don't wanna get advertisements shoved down my throat all day long just for signing up for news... Your news reports and whole site is already packed with ads everywhere. Even most of your "NEWS" stories are just paid advertisements. Fake news to make you buy something or signup for something i just wanna comment on stories.
I check it constantly, and rely on it for my news source I come from the newspaper and magazines generation, I'm fact I subscribed to Newsweek and others for more than 25 years. Now I love it that I can take my news wherever and whenever. The only complaint is that I think the app offers too much of what it thinks I want. Some days I like certain things and some not Especially world news seems to be in shot supply.
The only reason I dl this lousy app was because yahoo makes it difficult for Web browsers like me to comment. This app is lousy cos it doesn't even track your comments intelligently. Plus I don't need another app for ransomware pirates to wriggle into my phone.
The Newsroom app is the best way to stay up to date on news that matters to you and the conversation it starts. We update it on a regular basis to make sure you're always up to speed.
