  • Like different categories

    Like different categories. Don’t like that some sources only let you read 3 articles then want payment. Not as bad as Apple but...
  • Google

    Use for info and reference only. The mIn content is inundated with liberal bias
  • The best

    By Rvfiddle
    I have several news apps, but google is the best for me. It beats apple, USA Today and others for my content I like.
  • One place to go for all your news

  • Made for dummies

    By HBakiIz
    The app is now made for dummies. Full of pics force you to skip the headlines. Font sizes for readability is limited. I am deleting it again.
  • News brought by Google

    By RonJon3:16
    I mean it’s easy to navigate
  • Much worse than APP on PC

    By Aron3911
    Poorly done app for iPhone. Not intuitive. Not clear how to go back when a wrong story is selected. Search is not always obvious.
  • My most-used app, but I have a wish list

    By Rkj0053
    Google News is far better than Apple’s news app. First and foremost, Google’s has a more natural scrolling feel (like Safari or other browsers), while Apple’s is overly sensitive in comparison (a slight scroll sends me halfway down an article). I also like Google’s rate of updates throughout the day and the customizability their app provides (not as good as it used to be however). I’m able to block news providers as a whole on Google (like when random British tabloids of ill repute kept showing up, I was easily able to block their content). Wish Google supported comments within the app like it used to (now have to navigate into the browser to view/reply). Also, the ability within the app to choose to view articles in Safari is now more limited. I now have to copy paste the articles into Safari instead of just clicking “open in Safari.”
  • Overall great news source!

    Clear, concise and easy to read. Up to date news source at its best!
  • Falls short for Local News

    By Jims Barn
    All I really wanted was an alternative local news source! But getting there was like pulling teeth. When I downloaded the app it had a local news tab but that was gone in my app! It is not very intuitive so it is a bit of a puzzle to configure. Fortunately removing apps is easily done. Anyone can give you the National news but local news is a bit tougher.
