My News App--We See It First!!!
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.
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.
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.
