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.
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
All the Breaking News apps are severely lacking - including this one: When you click "Open" as opposed to "Dismiss" in the Alerts popup, it just opens the app instead of going to the alerted story. In fact, sometimes the alerted story is nowhere to be found. Frustrating. Breaking news sound is not changeable, barely audible and usually doesn't work. Older stories interspersed with breaking news and are hard to distinguish and are repetative. Needs to be more customizable. 2 out 3 "Local" sources wouldn't open any articles.
