Review from PTSD
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..
I loves Yahoo until they just updated it. What is going on!? I just want my news stories. Every time I click on one of the top news stories now it takes me to a screen that looks extremely similar to a annoying Snapchat news story and a couple sentences about the story. It was awesome when you could click on the picture and BAM there's the whole news story for me to read. I come here to read the news this sucks now
With grammar and spelling my 7 year old would be ashamed of, and the most infuriating interface I've seen in a long time, I can't imagine why you'd use this app. Most 'articles' are a single paragraph long, or just one sentence. A good portion require you to watch a video to get details, which is aggravating. There's no journalism to speak of to be found in this app. Using this app is a mistake second only to shaving your groin, and will lead to equal frustration and suffering.
With this latest upgrade to the app I can't seem to read any of the stories. I select the story I'm interested in, the first page comes up with the pictures oh, about five or six of them, and the first paragraph of the article. From that point on I cannot read the rest of the article. In previous versions of the Yahoo newsstand app I was able to read the article the comments set it as a favorite, everything that was supposed to be available for the article. This new version of the app is very, very frustrating.
ATTENTION: DEVELOPERS!! DO YOU PEOPLE EVEN TEST THE APP? DO YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE THE NEW FORMAT IS BETTER ND MORE USER FRIENDLY? THE NEW APP SUCKS. REVERT BACK TO THE OLD FORMAT. UNTIL THEN, I'LL FIND MY NEWS ELSEWHERE.
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.
Totally disjointed. That's all I can say about this app. It's hard to set up and the stories are all over the place. It's just a mess! There are repeat stories which I don't get and major news that doesn't appear here for some reason. Too many ads that look like stories and that is deception. The breaking news section has stories that are days old. That's not breaking news. Come on yahoo.
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.
Follow the news you choose. Read breaking stories from the world’s best sources.
