Review from Alicia Johnson
I really love❤😘 it
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.
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.
Update is horrible, had problems with refreshing after backing out of articles that was annoying before amd not being able to view pictures in articles, nothing compared to how bad it is now, now the whole app sucks. Probably will stop reading the news because it just causes anxiety anyways. Wikipedia here I come
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.
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.
