When it works it is good 3/5
Much of the time the Google News and Weather app works well. At least once every day it two, however, it looses its ability to link from headlines to actual stories. A blank page comes up and even if left for a time to recover, it does not. I must re-boot my iPhone or delete and reinstall the Google News app to get it running again.
Enjoy the app 4/5
It allows me to aggregate stories I enjoy reading and keep up on from all over the world.
Good news aggregator 4/5
Google News is a content aggregator. It works very well for what it is and allows some customization. One drawback is that many major newspapers require subscriptions and Google has no way to filter those out of the summary feed. Otherwise it is a five star aggregator.
Top notch 5/5
Great news app.
Visually Awkward, Needs Refreshing 3/5
It's 2017 Google, time for a facelift. Looks and behaves like a 5 yr old App.
Fake news! Sad!

Nice app 5/5

Good, But Needs Improvement 3/5
I enjoy the app, but wish I could turn off the National "news" segment which appears at the top of the page. I enjoy the sections which I have selected, but hate seeing the national news headlines from NYT and Washington Post blaring every time I open the app
Great app! 4/5
Not bad at all. Wish it would update the weather on its own. Right now you have to pull down in order to get it to update. News are pretty good!
Love love love this app 5/5
I really wish reporting typos & grammatical errors was a quick and convenient feature. I'm thinking similar to the brilliant "look up" feature for words, maybe a "typo alert" after highlighting certain text that gets transmitted to google for screening then to the publisher/ editor?
very good,I need it. 5/5
very good,I need it.
Google Advertising not news 1/5
The Washington Post is the worst paper in the country. It is full of opinions, not facts.
Lovely app 5/5

It's a sampler 3/5
This app does have news headlines, but when tapped the story is from another subscription service. The user is apparently allowed a limited number of stories per outside news source, then, after selecting a headline, the story won't load. Instead the reader is offered a chance to pay for a subscription of that news source. I suppose it's nice to have a way to sample a wide variety of news sources before paying for a subscription, but I think the app's description should CLEARLY indicate that this is what it is. I saw "in app purchases" but I guess I'm not savvy enough to have read between the lines.

Locked Screen Notification does not update 3/5
By Tere Mere Dreams
Good source of News. However, the locked Screen Notification does not update. Can stay the same for days..... Please rectify.....
Full of fake news 1/5
Why can't you make it like web version where people can select news sources? You keep on displaying far left news sources that are known for lousy and irresponsible journalism such as Washington Post. I'm deleting you today.
Google Loyal 4/5
Even with my iPhones I prefer Google News and Weather (and browser) it's just so much more visually simpler to use and it's not overly annoying with notifications. Also easy to move from story to story unlike Fox News apps.
Hit and miss! 2/5
A hit with science business and technology, but the liberal spin on politics is a total mess. Since 2016 it has been declining in quality objective realistic reporting on national issues.
Best News App 5/5
The best news app by far.
Google news 2/5
By Cj Che Cj
Great format, but content has an extreme liberal bias.
Google News 5/5
Excellent App. Everyone with IOS or Andriod should have it.
I enjoy the fact that you can customize to what is important to you. A MUST have!

Best e news out there
Good news source 4/5
I have been looking for another news source to read each day over the obviously biased USA Today. Although I would like to see better graphics (a bit more "excitement") in the page presentation, I do like the readability of the news page. I like being able to see local weather on the same page also.
Will discontinue 1/5
Ads flaring up is not what I wanted or expected
Time to do away with it and search for something I
Do not have to watch before news items!
This app should be SO much better than it is...keep waiting for Google to see its problems.
Like it better than CNN 4/5
Preferred news service
Can't adjust sources 3/5
Please enable iPhone users to adjust sources, as we can when signed in to the website.
Runs sub par 2/5
Has a lot of glitches on iOS. Blank sites, not loading.
Not the same as a browser topic search 1/5
I did a comparison between setting up a search in this app and safari using google's search engine and found differences in the results. Not all of the articles showed up. Learning that news sources have to join some sort of membership to show up in this app. Going back to my browser to get my news.
Liked the old Google News better. 3/5
Love this app lots of news 5/5
Great news in my city love this app
Love it 5/5
By Rick Breault Sr.
Quick, easy place to get local, and worldwide news.
Hardly Objective 1/5
I guess I'm trapped. I'm looking for a mobile news feed that is sophisticated enough to reach past the agenda laden, blatantly one-sided politically motivated platform of liberal bias. How can you justify not offering a realistic balance of news stream providers. Americans are no longer naive enough to stay tuned in for shallow, weak minded press. Just offering CNN, WP, NYT, LAT, USAT...Hey GOOGLE NEWS, please broaden your horizons.
super crappy performance. please improve
By midwest review
Seems like a lot of your news sources are left leaning,CNN,Huffington Post ,Etc. Doesn't seem very balanced.
News and more 5/5
Just a great and easy to use interface. The way news app's should be. 👍🏻👌🏻
Good news aggregation 4/5
OK but not great 2/5
By Nonatus 1888
The app lacks the variety of the PC version. I use it only when I can't get to my laptop. You also have to be careful as it contains alt-news like stories from Breitbart. The AP news app is much better and authentic.
I really enjoy this app.
Great source 5/5
Like it. No issues, variety of sources to be informed from. You are able to customize for regions and news you are interested.
Great App!!!! 5/5
Love the google news and weather app!
Best app for news 5/5
Includes local news 5/5
By Proud pop
Something Apple News does not inckude
Format is marginal 3/5
Compared to other news aggregators, this format / UI is just clunky and a bit awkward.
One of my top news apps 4/5
And I'm critical and been through many. I like the way you can move around and the different choices in presentation.
