clean, direct, "just works"! you just get the stories, in categories, and the breaking news alerts. news is simply and conveniently presented, and very up to date. all the settings you'd expect to be there are there. everything works well, no weird bugs, except one time I had to restart it in order to get the latest stories when I'd been disconnected from the internet for a while and tried to refresh multiple times. other than that, a lovely little app, and exactly what i wanted to help me stay informed.
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?
Great stories I was blown away by the first in-depth story I found here (about the plight of slave fishers in Asia) and I'm a fan since. I couldn't save the article inside the app then, so I checked if I could find it now, searching for terms like Thailand, fishing, slaves, etc, but neither of these searches yielded anything. However, a quick Google search found: "AP wins Pulitzer Prize for 'Seafood from Slaves' investigation". So, definitely great reads here, even if the search and save functions could be improved.
Great to Read Here I always love the way Associated Press present their news and that's why i read a lot of story from them. When i first downloaded the AP app, i was in doubt about the layout and user interface of the app. But i found it extremely helpful and enjoyable to read the news stories here. It is very well organized and well maintained. So its a thumbs up for AP app...!.
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.
