The latest update ruined this app for me. Pick an article to read and then scroll up or down to close to the left or right of your screen and up pops the next or previous story. Pick an article to read that includes a video and you will only be able to watch the video. If you try to read the text below the video, it will not scroll. Uninstalling. Will find something else that actually works. So disappointing.
Be prepared to scroll... With the huge photos and gimondous fonts you'll see 5 ads and 2 stories every 30 swipes or so. I'm weaning off this app, moving to more serious news apps. Too much PopSugar and clicks to get to stories. Thanks anyway.
They finally just started using GIFs as stories instead of actually printing words. They are now these weird videos and a one sentence headline. I don't know if I should be mad at Yahoo for being so lazy or for the dumb asses who think this is a good thing... I understand it isn't necessarily a news site and forgave them when they started more advertising that was made to look like stories but I'm done. Google News it is, I guess....
Used to be excellent but they keep trying to fix something that was never broken in the first place. Now it's more like a children's pop-up book. Give the users a little credit. We know how to read without all the fluff.
With the new "remodeling" of the app this is now the worst news app of all, whereas I would say it was easily one of the best aroud prior to this horribly misguided change that they just made. Instead of ruining their app completely , what they should have done is fixed some of the more glaring functionality flaws, such as not being able to edit posts, or not having a system in place to easily revisit posts. I mean there were some pretty big problems already, but even in spite of these it was stilk one of the best news apps, but to complete remove the ability to read the articles, i can imagine how that isnt self sabotage or more like self destruction. Very disappointing, not sure what ill move on to now..
Bring back the old app. Don't care for the large fonts and too many ads and videos when l just want to read the article. Allow editing of comments.
