  • Poor layout.

    By jayslittlesister
    I love google news but I hate the large pictures. It was nice to have a small picture with a synopsis, and the ability to see more than one news story before scrolling down. Plus the white background is too bright.
  • No ability to filter keywords, only sources

    By Halfdeafmusic
    I spent all my time trying to get sports and celebrity news out of my feed. Literally I spent days “hiding” sources, scores of them. I won’t use this app until there’s an option to either filter keywords out, or say “no sports news in my feed”. You guys can do better.

  • Glad I didn’t delete the old app

    I know a lot of people have blazing fast WiFi and huge mobile screens, but there are also a lot of us that don’t. The huge images drown everything else out on my screen. I want to be able to quickly skim headlines for news, which means this app is fairly useless to me. Sticking with the older one unless they give this a redesign.
  • Great, But I Want to Block Fox News

    By amywastaken
    I love the variety and quality, but I don’t like getting stuck with Faux propaganda level garbage in my feed. And for whatever reason I get tons of news articles related to gaming that I’d also love to weed out. So more customization please!
  • Can’t get to subscriptions

    By Qpqpddd
    I have a subscription to the Washington Post (WP), but I can’t login from Google News. It wants me to manage my subscriptions through my Google Play account, which I don’t have and don’t want on my iPhone. On my Android tablet, I can’t reach the login page for the WP, continually looping around the the page that says login is required. I’m looking for another news app that doesn’t insert itself between me and my information sources.
  • Works good

    Found everything. works well. Still biased toward cnn.
  • Do not download, keep your old news app

    By subpar news app
    I wish I hadn’t downloaded this app. The format puts way too much emphasis on the images associated with news stories, rather than the actual news headline/description. I lost the condensed list view and groupings all on one page that I loved in the google news & weather app. Lastly, I can’t change the background to black, which causes me eye strain since I usually read the news in bed. I loathe this app. I’m actively searching Apple apps right now for an alternative news app. Google, you are usually better than this.... what happened?
  • Great info!

    Easy access. Need to enhance titles and subheadings.
