Overall it's a great app but behind the scenes, over the last couple of weeks, someone decided to start sending push notifications for every single story. Baseball, category 1 hurricanes, usually 10+ for any larger event. Probably reinstalling because it won't let me leave my phone alone for more than fifteen minutes before I get pinged again.
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.
Functional, but sluggish. It's okay. Design is nice, could be better, smoother. Feels a little barebones, like it was put together in a few days. Content-wise, it's as good as you can get if you care about non-biased articles that don't cater towards left/right politics.
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.
I really dislike this app. First of all, almost every time a notification comes up for an article, the article disappears or has a different title. Also, when I click on an article notification and the dialogue box comes up, most of the time I can only dismiss them and can't actually open the article. So, I end up searching the news on Google and go to a different website. I'm going to delete and download another app.
