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.
Gives me updates without being annoying, works well. Appreciate it. Like that it seems less slanted than regular news outlets. I often just want the facts, and this does that.
Stale news remains on top, forcing us to scroll through old stories to find new ones. Ads getting more intrusive, especially the spam for yucky Snickers that repeatedly pops up from the bottom when trying to read articles.
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.
I'm a new convert to AP. The content is great: more apparent facts and fewer biased opinions than other outlets. But the app is terrible. Please enable offline mode, prevent news stories from disappearing within minutes, and improve the order of news items, especially when updating. Thank you.
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.
