Just love it! 5/5
Better than fox or yahoo
News Rating 3/5
AP is way to BIAS.
Tired of all the half truths and lies.
Excellent app & Excellent fast breaking news 5/5
I have many news apps. I am a news aficionado. Consistently, AP News app delivers the news faster than any other app, faster than TV, faster than a speeding bullet, taller than high buildings... Wait, that's Superwoman.
The app is reliable and does not use resources heavily. The content is fast and straightforward without bias. Just the news ma'am and make it now.
That's the deal with AP.
Horrific new ad server 1/5
I fully understand that I am receiving free news in exchange for ads. I accept that every time I open the AP app. But AP’s new tactic of forcing open a video right in the middle of reading a critical news story about a school shooting or any other very sensitive news has gone way too far. The same video (in this case a Puppy for Purina dog food) over and over and over again, opening every 20-30 seconds??? Great way to turn someone against your advertisers, also drove me to immediately delete the app. Cmon AP, you’re so much better than that.
By Kathy and Gale
The AP is the only news source that approaches reality, in my opinion at present. The actual video of President Trump talking about the school shooting shows his caring and sensitivity to the people involved. Also, and I don’t know where else you would even find this, he quotes from the Scriptures and says that God’s Word says, “I have heard your prayers. I have seen your tears. I will heal you.“ No wonder that so much distortion accompanies media reports. However, God’s Word wins.
Does not work at all! 1/5
By Fred Greco
After downloading this, it does not work at all. Will not let you set up an account or even skip that. Will not connect at all. Completely useless.
Trolls and reviews. 5/5
First off, this is a fantastic app and anyone seriously interested in in depth reporting and in keeping up with breaking news should have this app.
The AP is a superb news organization which supplies much of the news reporting to local news outlets. Having this app allows one to see the news hours before the major news organizations have it.
However this app seems to have attracted more than its share of trollers. Try it first before believing some of the trolls writing reviews.
Just enough quick news 5/5
I don’t understand the bad review that this app got. This is a good app for somebody who doesn’t have a lot of time and who wants to see more about something that they saw on the television in the lobby at work. I don’t have a lot of time to spend with news and this app gives me what I need. Generally the first article is exactly what’s going on at the moment.
By Teach Em Up
Best news service in the business, delivered free (with ads). Great app
Trusted Source 5/5
I know I can count of the AP to present accurate, unbiased news. This app is great at delivering the news as it happens. The alerts are a wonderful way for me to know what’s going on wherever I am. Thanks, AP!
Stay current 5/5
AP remains an excellent source of reliable and balanced news.
App works well, too. Good oversight. You can find things quickly, yet there is enough info to flesh out the stories of the day.
And if you’re on a tight budget, that it’s free doesn’t hurt either.
By Spindly weez
One of the best!
New app is terrible 1/5
The old app was much more news focused and less ad focused. The new ads everywhere with scrolling banners and full page ads is just horrible. Not to mention when not even touching the screen the ad at the bottom pops out to cover the screen after 10 seconds causing oh to have to exit out of the ad. I used to enjoy the news on my iPhone / iPad but I’m uninstalling this app as it is nothing more than an ad site now.
Wish I could give 5, but POP UP ADS!!! 3/5
Its a shame that an app with so much good content and articles would RUIN itself, SELL its credibility, and TRASH its own integrity as a news source by making ads pop up over the news articles every other minute. I used this app every day and now it is DELETED!
Incomplete settings 3/5
The following 2 settings are missing in this "new" AP News:
1 - Black background option and
2 - Zero images option. Fewer images is not a replacement for ZERO images.
Please, note that the above 2 settings were always present in the "old" AP app, which was an excellent news app. I still have it and I continue to use it. The "old" AP news app is my preferred 5 star app . I hope you do listen because this is not a new request. In fact, it is as old as the "new" AP app!
Favorite news app 5/5
By lost in the 50s
I subscribe to three news sites but always comeback to the AP site for its straight-forward news and information.
Great coverage!!!! 5/5
It nice to get a wide coverage of independent news.!
By Al O C
Love Ap 5 star
Not a fan of new UI 1/5
The 2017 update to the interface missed the mark. I like the condensed headlines to see more news at a glance. The new UI requires more scrolling and it has fewer ways to customize the look. I’m not going to delete the old app version on my phone until the AP News product team comes to its senses and brings back UI/UX functionality its app used to have.
Very informative! Quick and easy to use!
Turning off until after the Olympics 1/5
By 333 748 576
How about a spoiler alert! I’m watching the event then the result pops up before I get to watch it. Argh.
Stop the Olympic spoilers!!! 2/5
So long AP 2/5
By Dr. Paulie
What for many years has been my go-to daily news read has morphed into a slog through that I may be able to tolerate once every few weeks. I haven’t yet deleted it, but am closing on that decision.
Also, I have interests in several states and like to follow their news. Can’t do it any more. Just the news in the state I happen to be in, whether I am interested or not!
What was wrong with the old app? Don’t fix what ain’t broken!
My standby for news! 4/5
Always up to date.
New version still crashes on launch 1/5
The new update still has the problem that it immediately crashes on every launch, on two different devices, with two different device types (iPhone/iPad), on two completely different releases of iOS (iOS 11, iOS 10). It appears this is self-inflicted: the app is calling abort().
You can't politely let AP know about the problem, because the Report a Problem link just goes to the AP home page, which doesn't have a place to Report a Problem.
My Go-To News app 5/5
This app is my first choice of the many that I have. Quite often I read something here and then a day or two later it is covered on cable news. I don’t care so much about the layout and other picky issues that some reviews complain about; for me the CONTENT and coverage is most important.
AP News 5/5
This app has more news articles than any other. Between this app and the LA Times, I am well-informed.
Useful among other news sources 5/5
It's the associated press! Real news 5/5
Only wish posting on Facebook was a little more elegant rather than the logo.
But it's free and it's real news rather than the other stuff.
Forget the know-nothings 5/5
I worked with The AP wire for years on various newspapers, and this app does a fine job of delivering the news in that manner to the general public. News pros appreciate the AP for what it is: a vital player in maintaining a well-informed public.
I love the app 5/5
By The Red Nismo
The updated app is great!!!!! Keep it up!!!!
Great overview of news 5/5
This looks at all AP news and gives a great overview. Seems unbiased. Worth reading.
This had been my go-to news app for years. Today I opened two articles which each had a pop up video ad come up as I was scrolling to read. Consecutively, my thumb hit the screen to scroll as the pop ups appeared. Bye, AP. Hope you grab that money! 🤑🤮
Best news app available 5/5
By Expeditions Alaska
I read it every day. It's a great source for well-written and researched news. The UI is easy enough to figure.
I agree with the other person who said the teal color is pretty lame. It does tend to give the app a "news lite" feel, but that's just personal preference I guess. The content itself is solid.
Just terrible 1/5
By Thors pinky
Anti Trump and anti America propaganda.
Well-vetted resources that are trustworthy and dependable. 5/5
The Associate Press is NOT “new” as a negative review stated.
There is a great deal to be said for thorough vetting of sources and reporting in a neutral voice that maintains an important balance in presenting the news. A free and fair press is fundamental to our basic freedoms. AP was the original free press used by many news outlets since its inception. Quality writing, thoughtful fair editing, vetted sources is the high standard that AP consistently maintains.
Great for actual news 5/5
This app gives you great updates on the latest developments. It is not for those who are looking for biased news, whether left or right. And it is definitely not for those who rely on one TV cable news network for their news…
It’s AP news ... from the AP ... uh, on the AP app 5/5
If you like AP news and have an iPhone which uses apps, then this is the AP news app for you. The search is over. It’s the AP, bringing together the power of being informed by AP news and the relevance of app technology, and best of all, it works, most of the time. Just be aware that sometimes it gets updated ... because apps sometimes update. And I don’t think they’re selling my information to anyone, but who knows? Any drawbacks are easily overshadowed by the convenient scrolling and tap-to-choose selection features, which use technology you may not know is already built into your Apple device. Not only are you enjoying AP news on your AP news app, but you are maximizing some of your iPhone’s most basic functions. Avoid fake news and get the AP news app, it’s just like Associated Press news, but in an app.
Please fix iPhone X 3/5
I have always read AP. I love that I now have better access rather than only seeing the local filtered news paper.
I would really like you to fix the navigation bar and lower it out of the camera. Also, can you move the home button to the bottom instead of the side?
The AP News App is Excellent! 5/5
I realize this is increasingly difficult at a time when opinion often serves as news but The
Associated Press’s commitment to fairness and old fashioned gum shoe reporting is more important than ever. Our Democratic Republic depends on the AP!
iPhone 8 latest OS app won’t even open. Fix and I will update review.
What the hell were they thinking??? 1/5
They ruined a great news app! The in ability to choose a dark mode is a big deal for me. I don’t like the layout and find it hard to read! They also don’t respond to feedback.
Great Detail 5/5
By Stan from Michigan
I find the articles are informative and go into depth to inform readers about the details and background on news.
It is a perfect USA companion to other sources such as BBC, DW, and The Guardian.
Good mobile news app 5/5
Have been using this app a few months and really like it. In these divisive times I only trust a few news sources and AP is one of those.
The app isn’t splashy but the content is worth it
Variety of news! 5/5
I very much enjoy the variety of news on the AP site!
Greatest News App 5/5
Real news now! It’s my go to news source. I even quote the articles from time to time. I do miss the radio but I guess I’m one of two in that regard. Oh, and it could not be simpler to navigate.
Left wing fake news 1/5
By Deborah's Iphone
I previously had AP mobile. Hoping it would be more balanced. Not!!! The ding you hear is me using the X to delete your app!!!
Easy to use 5/5
By Luke Spence
Quick browse to find article of interest from many sources is my favorite feature.
Crashes constantly 1/5
This is the buggiest version of this app I’ve ever used. It locks every time I use it and must be restarted. I’m very disappointed in this version.
GREAT🤗🤗🤗🤗 No Complaints 5/5
Does a great job on making the corrections when needed. Pictures tell a story despite that it fills the page. Still a great app, new is received faster then other apps.
