Liberal biased news 1/5
Definitely a left wing is putting the news reports together in this app.
By Mike Honcho 2000
A great app
I count on Google News. 5/5
Every day I make a point to start off by checking the news to learn of recent world events, and for breaking news that affects my family. I count on Google to give me a quick overview, and allow a deeper analysis of stories, in which I have a particular interest.
Keep up the Good work!!!
Great Google product like always 5/5
Best news app 5/5
By Super Poena
The app tracks my location and give me news related to my location and preferences. It also has no bias, unlike other local media houses. Love it. Thanks!!
Doesn't leave out unwanted categoies - wastes my time 2/5
I thought I chose not to receive sports news, yet my feed is usually including at least one sports story and has had as many as three in one screen. There are other aggregators out there and I am exploring them them.
It is hard to get the app to deliver the kind of international news I'm looking for. I wish I could figure out how to get the app to be less localized and to deliver news in multiple languages. Disappointing at best! The limitation on number of topics I can follow is frustrating.
Great news app 5/5
Timely news updates. I use it daily or more to keep up with news.
Excellent source of news 4/5
Excellent source of news for folks tired of fake stuff!
Liberal bias 3/5
Great news source, it is just biased.
Best way and best app 5/5
The best way to get your news today is a news aggregator - this way you avoid single sources with a bias. Of the aggregators this one is the best.
Awesome App! 5/5
Good but buggy 4/5
By Gerry (UK)
When it works it's really good, but too often pages start rendering blank and one has to force-quit the app and then reopen for the pages to show. It's been like this for ages, sadly. Otherwise, I'd give it 5 stars.
Great interface! 5/5
I love the way the weather is displayed
Very balanced news source 5/5
Very balanced news source. Good selection of articles
Works well 5/5
I have been using this only for a short time but I have liked it. I am yet to personalize the content but I am happy with what it provides.
Excellent application 5/5
By Quest Lab
I love this application I can read the news, application is very stable and easy to launch
Has Become More And More Just Fake News 1/5
It seems all the new stories are mostly now all far left leaning, hateful, disingenuous, and just dishonest. I'm looking to news feeds now like CBN, Fox and others for more honest reporting and presentation.
I like it! 5/5
My favorite on iOS.
Nice summary of daily news.
Stupid f'ing app doesn't work 1/5
By Happy TX reader
I keep trying it, but when you click on the stories--Nada. Just blank screens. Pathetic attempt at an app.
This is a decent app 5/5
App has minimal features but gets the essentials right
Uninstalling-Tired of Liberal Slant 1/5
Had this app on my phone for several years but the top headlines and stories have become so obvious liberal, I have no use for it anymore. Just report the facts. Some of us are intelligent enough to draw our own conclusions and form our own opinions. We don't need the liberal media to shove some bs down our throats. Uninstalling. ✌🏼
Very promising 2/5
Nite mode rocks
UI details exist but counterintuitive visually
It should just work. But using it, sources are deprecated to ghost scrip and randomized. Confusion reigns as more stories complicated when all you want is to check your Fav reads
Poor selection of news sources 1/5
Need to allow user to avoid the biased news services versus funneling only those sources into the app
Little more than one-sided opinion articles 1/5
Sad lack of diversity in article sources.
Good app, not great. 4/5
I wish the sources were more diverse but it's a good app.
My fav app but 3/5
This is my to go app for news. If I have this one on my phone I don't really need any other app. But would love if the widget shows the updated news every time. As of now one has to open the app and then the news in the widget gets updated.
As with everything Google. It works perfectly.
Good news summary but Paid subscription login and limits & dead ends must go 2/5
When I see an item I want to read - or just have to tap to see the full headline (click bait?) - it all to often leads to WSJ, NYT, WAPO, etc. that requires a paid subscription login and/or has a limit on articles I can read. In those cases as well as many other news providers there are popups, popovers and logins together with dead ends where I can't read the article for the clutter and I can't get past them and also cannot get back to the home screen without exiting and restarting the app.
Needs work and standards for feed providers and sources of articles.
Propaganda :-( 1/5
Breitbart popped into my feed today. I want news, not propaganda. Please cull your sources immediately. You're about to lose a faithful user who has recommended this app to others. Give us news, not lies.
Small problem 4/5
The opening page with the headlines on a horizontal plane is not as easy to read/navigate as the vertical plane
To many adds, broken links, adds disguised as news 2/5
It is almost impossible to view the news with so many adds! And links to adds disguised as news. Links to blank pages or content that needs a subscription... not a good user experience.
Crashes and limited 2/5
With one week of use, finding the screen gets locked frequently while reading articles requiring restart of app.
Dislike that "see more" is so few linked articles now. Preferred "see all 654 articles" so I could review multiple sources at one glance.
Poor and getting worse 1/5
Pages don't load
App does not load
Used to. Just got bad in last month.
It would be great if it worked 1/5
I could understand that google might have a content problem...but half the time it just doesn't work...didn't google kind of start this stuff?
Need ability to choose and set news sources 2/5
This app should have a means to exclude specific sources of information. Buzzfeed, Variety and individual blogs are not standard news sources. It seems as though a teenager or hyper-focused adult is uploading the Trending content.
Liberal feeds dominate 2/5
It's a fun and engaging news format, but I can't filter out sites like Washington Post that by-and-large provide highly skewed and unreliable reports. It's sad that google seems to have sold out and gone political instead of providing unfiltered content.
Great Google App 5/5
It does not have any angry sites like Brietbart or the like. Nor does it have any Orange Kool-Aid drinking sites. Awesome!!
Decent breadth of news sources. 4/5
Decent breadth of news sources.
No news 1/5
This app gets consistently worse with each update. There is less "news" and much more opinion. The Executive Orders section is a bit much. The slant on your so-called "news" is frustrating. I will no longer use this app.
Decent app but lacks features 1/5
I'm a big fan of Googles apps on iOS but there is definitely room for improvement across the board. My biggest complaint is the lack of widgets and some features. For example, Google Maps has 3 separate widgets that include travel times, nearby traffic info, and local public transportation information. The widget for Google Keep is decent as well as I have the option for a voice memo, making a list or even taking a photo note.
For this app, Google News, there's a widget but it only includes news and you as the user have no control over the articles presented to you. For starters there should be a separate widget for the weather. The widget should display your weather based on your location and then give you the option to see other locations you've set within the app. For the news widget you should have the option of setting what kinds of articles are presented to you or what outlets you'd like to receive news from.
Other than those issues I think Google News is a well thought out app and has potential to be on par with other news apps, but the issue with widgets keeps it from reaching that point. I'll change my review with a future update that includes those changes or similar to what I've presentated but until that time I give it one star.
Too many ads! 1/5
I can't believe it that google allow a huge quantity of ads.
One-sided liberal biased 1/5
Enjoyed the technology news pieces but quickly grew tired of liberal slant. Basically a one stop shop app for Washington Post and NYT political hatchet pieces.
Way too many adds 1/5
This has increasingly become a problem such that I am looking for an alternative now. Great for PC but on iPhone too many ads. I would pay for an ad free version but not offered. If you are ok with ads and don't mind being in the middle of reading something and being constantly interrupted. Rather pay the cash for a better app myself
Biased Newsfeed 2/5
Very unbalanced, left wing oriented feed.
Slow to load; Slow to play video 2/5
Much less convenient to use than viewing Google News in Chrome or Safari. Loading the app takes more than 10-15 seconds and about the same for video news story. Using a browser takes 1-2 seconds max.
Doesn't work well on IOS 2/5
I like the variety of the news on this app but it consistently fails to load on my iPhone resulting in a reboot. Not worth the hassle.
Ok app, buggy sources 3/5
So many sources for this app either fail to load or overwhelm the user with pop up ads. Yes pop ups, not in place ads. The default behavior for any pop up seems to be to replace the current window with the pop up so you can't even close it to get back to the news. Please filter your sources.
Liberal garbage, pushed to the extreme... 1/5
This app gets worse and worse. Nearly every headline article from WSP, CNN, or NYT. No way to stop or filter out this biased news groups either. Buzzfeed headlined article on what pill trump takes for hair growth pushed me to deleting this app. Was a long time user of this app until recently, please allow filters for liberal left new sources, they are often not accurate and very misleading!!! Good job google at getting the masses ill-informed and brainwashed by these garbage biased selections. Until filters are added, I'm done having no choice but to read these liberal left sources.
