Terrific App Easy to use. Very well written and balanced reporting. Keeps you up to date. Fast updates. My go to app for news.
Almost perfect AP has always been where the worlds news media gets its news. I know that to be true from my broadcasting background. But the app has one big problem for me. The doggone sound for alerts does not make a sound. I get a vibrate occasionally, and once in a great while an actual sound. (And the sound is so cool...really a classy sound). Nevertheless, I like the app.sound or no sound. Any suggestions?
Strange request but good app anyway Asked me to rate it a 5 right off the bat. Good collection and presentation of news topics. The slide-out tab is nice but I would like to be able to do some filtering. Even better, to enter my key words for news topics.
Politically biased, but it's okay. Been using for about 3 years & it works well. Updates frequently. Would give more stars if their "Fact Checkers" weren't so obviously pushing politica agendas. Too many true journalists doing their jobs around the globe, and the AP cheapens their work by publishing opinions as the news. I still have to read multiple outlets to be accurately informed which limits the convenience of the app. 3 Stars.
Simple to use, easy to view, doesn't try to be too fancy. I want solid, up to date news that I can rely on and this app provides. Scroll through the stories, choose what you want to see, and receive notifications on top events, what more do you need from a news app. I am glad that over time they have kept the simple design, white layout, with headline and pic. Too many others try to be fancy and over done. I want the news, well reported, with facts, and reliability. Anything more is compensation.
Removed offline reading destroys usability I travel all the time in areas that don't have good service. I really enjoyed the old version that saved the articles when you had service so you could read them later when you had no service. It would be a 5 star app if I could read articles while offline
