    The app now locks up constantly, has not been updated for the screen of the x, and when you can get to the articles it fails to load them, or sends you to fake news with constant page forwards and pop ups that can’t be closed.

    Mostly highlights articles from Wash Post and NYT that when opened just try to get you to subscribe. Didn’t use to do this. Download if you like reading pitches to sell you to subscribe to mediocre news outlets...
  • Demote subscription only articles

    So tired of clicking through to articles like on Washington Post (which is 30-40% of results BTW) and getting paywall. If it’s not readable, bounce it please!

  • ANTI-SCIENCE, falsehoods, charlatans promotes in the Science section

    Today’s examples on 11/18/2017 from the science section: - “Numerologist says rogue planet could bring end of days this weekend” - “Conspiracy theorists flock to first flat earth conference in North Carolina” - “Stunning proof that moon landing was faked” Need I say more? What the hell? This is not science news. This is ANTI-SCIENCE news. What a hypocrisy coming out of a company based on science and technology. - previous review below - Washington Post links now work just fine. Thank you. More mainstream news coverage than before. Great news app overall. - previous review below - Two main problems 1) About a third of the links are to Washington Post; however, none of those links works. It shows Washington Post banner on top, an empty page below, and an ad at the bottom (ad = mission accomplished) It also breaks the link back to the main page, forcing user to close the app and restart. Clunky and annoying to deal with. 2) Several links to weird, biased, fluff, or fake news websites, like Christian Science Monitor. - previous review below - Just linking to news articles on other websites. Google's involvement is minimal. Upon clicking on links I see "entire page" covered in an ad or simply blank ad space. Many links are bogus and do not lead to news articles, only ads. They source news from reputable and irreputable sources alike. There is Reuters, but also Christian Science Monitor.
  • Sharing button STILL broken...

    Can't save or share articles on the latest iPad Pro version. Please fix! It’s been months now. You can share on iPhone but the iPad app article sharing button in the upper right corner of the app does not function. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app.... STILL nothing. Sad that Google puts their name on a broken app.

    I love the app but with the iphone x the app doesnt fill the screen. I am sure the develpers are aware of this issue. Please fix this issue, I am now using the pre-installed news app in the meantime. Will update my rating to 4-5 when updated. Still no updates. Thanks Google.

    New policy? My news feed is now full of subscription sources. Truly useless to me. If it requires a subscription, get it out of my news feed......

    The new Google news app is GREAT? The only problem is it will not let you Email a story.
  • News? How about Ads instead!

    I spend so much time clicking or swiping away and around the ads that I give up. Deleting this app. If google cannot afford to offer up sources of news then they need to move on from apps such as this that claim to do so. The news is there but hidden among, what are at times, 3/4 of a page of ad material. Worse is the fact that it all loads from different sources and thus at deferent times so, just when you think it's done and you can actually read the article, the page skips around on you and you get to hunt for your place again. More than 10 times on some I've seen. Why?
