  • Awesome

  • Not fake but so slanted and opinionated

    By vsfcxert
    I get tired of all the news outlets giving opinions rather than news. So one sided, so slanted.
  • New GN app is pretty cool

    By waltfish
    Just trying it out, but it seems pretty great
  • Evil, Yes indeed!

    Now that this requires login... No thanks! I'm not Google's commodity. Apple News works just as well without me being their B.
  • Shows you what Google wants you to see

    By DJS1017
    This could be a decent app, if Google wasn’t so arrogant. While they offer options for you to “See fewer stories like this” or “Hide all” from a source, they basically ignore your choices and keep showing you stories you’re not interested in (remember, you aren’t Google’s customer—you are the product being sold to advertisers. They need to keep advertisers happy. You, not so much). I even complained to them about this on Twitter and was ignored (big shock LOL). I may check back in six months to see if they’ve improved but for now this app is deleted.
  • Spyware

    This app requires sign into Google, and notifies you it will sign in all other google apps plus safari, and share your personal data with other websites. No thanks, just the news please.
  • Less info in more space

    By uppitycakes
    I need the option to get rid of the pictures. Just give me the effing headlines, I’m not a child. I hate this update.
  • Can’t block anything

    By A_software_developer
    Blocking doesn’t work. Floods the reader with obscure news sources. No way to delete topics. Images slide greasily across the screen with no way to make them stop. Thinks Social media is a news source but won’t let me block it. How did this get past user acceptance testing? How can I give this zero stars?
  • The new news app is horrible

    By DavidMFlorida
    Warning, this app takes away many of the benefits of the old app, you can not define your own headline sections or locations in the local section. Google has severely screwed up this time.
  • Just show me the news

    By treaves
    The recent update to show images moving, going automatically to video, just distract. I deleted this worthless application after using it twice.
