I rely on AP news. This is the most authentic , unbiased and upto date news. The App has improved vastly over the last couple of years although a little more polish to the UI can be a welcome change. Having said that I am really happy with this App. The only breaking news I have enabled on my phone is AP. Over the years I have realized that no source beats AP in providing the latest news.
Content loads much faster now with the latest update! AP has a great reputation for accuracy and objectivity. I used to read Yahoo News (most of which were AP stories anyway), but got fed up with mean/ignorant user comments. This is a wonderful app: quick access to quality news stories and photos in intuitive categories, rapid updates, etc. Fast, clean navigation between stories.
I'm a new convert to AP. The content is great: more apparent facts and fewer biased opinions than other outlets. But the app is terrible. Please enable offline mode, prevent news stories from disappearing within minutes, and improve the order of news items, especially when updating. Thank you.
Update 5/28/17: I had hoped this update would fix issues with Galaxy S8 but alas, it still states that the news server can't be reached and blames MY network. Yeah, sorry AP News App Developers - this is your issue, not mine. Won't open on Galaxy S8+. Network issues? None here. Had to uninstall.
The bookmark function does not work and there is no way to contact to let them know. So I am rating low until they fix BOTH issues. Fix so I can save and read stories later AND provide a link OR contact info for app issues, and I will gladly rate 5 stars.
Would give it a 5 star review if I could actually read the articles that the app breaks. Basically news breaks first in the AP app but I have to go to NY Times or WaPo or NY Post to actually read the article with the details of what happened. Must fix that. I can't find the breaking news in the app when I click on it.
