Too slow to open 2/5
Takes too long to open. Usually just give up
Clear and concise 4/5
Really like the app, has weather and news in one place, clever.
Rate app 5/5
This app is great, I enjoy the variety of news we get to read.
Very useful. Much more than the web version and instantly accurate!
By Sandman in E! N! C!
Exactly what I need. A little but of everything including local news.
Only news that I want to read, whenever I want and can do it.
Nice, but like the rest, could improve ... 3/5
I write this review in hopes that the developers actually read them rather than a review to help others, but I am sure it will do that too.
I would give this app 5 stars if it did the one thing that I look for in most news app and don't find, and that is the ability to not only choose a topic category, but to also add/block specific sources. In this day of controversial "alternative" news, it would be nice to be able to see specific sources we like and block out those that are just ... Irritatingly biased.
Sure wish news could go back to the time when bias would cost them their jobs. They just can't report the facts without opinion these days and that's what I would like to have more control over.
Having said that it is a good app for gathering the various news sources all in one place. I do enjoy it, just could enjoy it more with a bit more source control. Thanks'
New Formate 1/5
From the first moment I opened the latest update of Google News I have not been impressed. I do not like the layout, the narrowness of its coverage and the overall appearance of the application. I much preferred the look of the previous version as I felt I had more choices of what I wanted to look at. Now I can't find various views on any given subject. Seems all the supporting reports to the main article are just reinforcing it's view. Bad journalism, very bad journalism.
Not using this anymore 1/5
By Darth Revan81
Google I'm done using your app and other products. You have pushed a bias agenda too long and I've had enough. App deleted and I'm switching to bing.
By Don in Ocala
There is, apparently, no effort to screen vulgar and stupid articles.
Google news review 3/5
Like the app when it works. Last 2-3 months it loads a blank page. Stopped using this app
Great for a longtime Android user 5/5
You'll love it, especially if you like Android.
3 Stars For Now 3/5
By EB Roy
It's good so far, not great, but good. A few bugs and quarks that need ironed out but nothing too major.
Slow to load and won't load articles 1/5
Recently stopped working the majority of the time. Avid user for years and I'm going to uninstall now.
Google News 5/5
By 7 R B
تطبيق جيد وعملي
نرحوا متابعة التحديث والتطوير
Thanks Google 👌🏻
Not Balanced 1/5
By Anny Rokks
It's obvious how unbalanced the google news is when 5 of the 7 headlines bash the president, from how he talks, walks and even shakes people's hands. These are the most important news articles of the day?? Wish they would be politically neutral and objective.
The dreaded blank pages 2/5
I give up. Content and design are great-- if the app would work. But having to reinstall the app or shut down my phone and restart every other day got to be such a drag. Permanently uninstalled. You would think google would be able to fix this. Apparently not.
It's good 5/5
I rely on this app every day to catch up on the news. It's the best news app because it's exactly like the website.
I like Google 4/5
I like the news app. I wish the UI was a little more to my taste. Thanks Google
Simple, comprehensive, and effective 5/5
Another great Google product that edges out Apple's own app. The ability to customize while keeping the UI simple is a strong point.
Pages frequently don't load, too many paid sources 1/5
Too many news sources have view limits that require payment. News pages frequently don't load and require you to shut the app down and restart. I find this app drains power if left running in the background. I'm surprised Google can't get a simple news app correct. Perhaps a new dev team is needed.
Cut the Kardashian crap 1/5
By A real business analyst
Seriously. Why the hell cant I block that insipid family from 'news' ?
Google News is great 5/5
I love this app because it lets me see the weather for the next few days and news right under.
Cannot read Washington post 5/5
By /\/\/\ ALP /\/\/\
Washington Post links now work just fine. Thank you.
More mainstream news coverage than before.
Great news app overall.
- previous reviews 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 reviews 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.
Needs Work 4/5
A number of liitle bugs/odd behaviors. Not at the level of most other Google products.
Google haberler 5/5
Beğeniyorum Kırıkkale haberlerini yenilemenizi Rice'ın ediyorum.
Simply News and weather 5/5
I've been using this app for several years. It is customizable and so easy to use. Add topics you want to follow, accept the default suggested categories, turn off the ones you don't want. Easy peasy.
AMP articles rarely work 1/5
I love this app but the frustration level with articles not loading gives it a one star. Far to often the amp articles don't load. Fix it google.
Google News 4/5
The news that I want to see.
Google news 4/5
When it is loading correctly on my iPhone 7 I'm happy with Google News. I like reading multiple viewpoints on a topic
Nice easy to use 3/5
Information and news when you need it
Untimely jumps 3/5
By Greta Greencheese
The app keeps refreshing or something as I'm scrolling through the articles, then jumping back to the beginning. Very annoying.
Can't sign in to newest version. Terrible update. Zero stars.
Goggle news 5/5
Great news app 5/5
One of my favorite news apps. I have used this on Android for years and it is great. Allows you to pick your interests and then sends news related to them. The weather is OK but I do not use it very much.
When it works its a good app 3/5
I like the app, but I find that after a while navigating into an article stops working. You click on it and you see a blank white screen, nothing loads. Haven't tested it but it may be after you switch to a different network. I'll repost if I can verify this.
Excellent fit on iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Very smooth and fluid. Great news Customization.
New layout is awkward 2/5
Can't get the top stories in the list format where they were easier to read.. also can't remove the "local" section... so now have to do a bunch if scrolling to see what I want.
Lots of Ads 4/5
You have to navigate through the clutter to read. Also ads open up all by themselves. This may be the product of individual websites, but I don't see Adblock capability. I'm probably just spoiled........you also can't minimize the weather, which, after you glance at it, takes up space for no purpose
It's ok 3/5
By Freds Stuff
I have several news apps and the Google one is ok. It's simple in its layout. Not a lot of graphics which is nice at times. I want to read headlines and when I open the article, then the graphics can come up.
White screen drops my rating 2/5
By BRPW 2003
I have used this app for a long time and it was my go to news app. No longer. I'm getting white screens and can't get out or I click on a story and it will not launch. If these things can be fixed I would used it daily and rate it highly. I'm running in iPhone 7 up to date IOS.
Lots of bugs, not a good reading experience anymore 2/5
By .The Man.
This app is riddled with issues. Sometimes an article will not load after clicking it, and other times it will freeze when I leave an article and return to the main news screen.
Sometimes it works smoothly but most of the time it is sluggish
I used to love the old format of google news which gave different source options for viewing the same story especially since I do not have subscriptions to NY times or Washington post and therefore want to "save" my free articles for truly important news stories. No such luck here.
Also once you click on a story you're left with a blank page at least 40% of the time.
I'll have to stick with my NPR or CNN apps until google can fix this issue
Useful and Easy to Use 4/5
By Super Dave 7532
Useful and Easy to Use
Good and bad 2/5
This app is great for national as well as local news, however....the thumbnail pics are usually incorrect and often are linked to an add and not the news story.
Slow, kludge, ugly. Worst problem: it appears to ignore the settings I have used with GoogleNews in the past. Specifically, it does not limit stories from sources I do not wish to view. And, there does not appear to be any means to limit sources in the app.
Lack of Sources, Can't Edit Local Section 1/5
I have no desire to check my local news, and this app gives no way to edit or remove that section. I'll be using other aggregators that have a larger variety of sources and don't cram local news down my throat.
Very good 5/5
Like it very much
