Seems to be a lot of old news.
Would rate high if ...if I were after entertainment. It has a kind of glossy-enquirer appeal (without the embarrassment of putting the pulp rag amongst your checkout stuff at the non-virtual register). Minimal depth and maximum sleaze inside. Removing it now, lest at some unguarded future moment I have nothing better to do than wade in there.
Crap/Gossip - Not News This app may have a few current events here and there, maybe some sports reporting, however the amount of really terrible non news articles is gross. Many articles will have "watch" in the title and they are not accompanied by a video bait and switch. Others will have a detailed title, and once you click on the article it basically restated the title and does not go into any detail. Lastly many articles direct you to another site to read other website news. This app is junk. Get a real news app like NPR.
Intrusive Can't control the intrusiveness of this app. For example, click the Close All Apps button and sure enough there's the Yahoo app icon sitting at the bottom of the border with no obvious way to remove it.
Very biased The columns written are from a lot of liberals. They tend to focus world news around how they would like, when it comes to certain countries, or presidential candidates. It upsets me, because its things like this that cause wars, and riots. Its just not proper news.
