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.
Update: as of June 2017, latest update has added many intrusive ads which constantly pop up & cover the bottom half of the screen. If this isn't fixed within the next couple weeks, I'll be uninstalling the app & giving negative reviews on social media. Please fix this, I want news, not commercials.
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.
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.
Too many ads and threats telling me to rate it 5 stars (or it will no longer be free). Well, there are other news apps so now that I have given them their rating they wanted, I'll uninstall this and use another.
