Still trying to get used to the new format 4/5
I loved, really enjoyed the old digest. Can't really understand why change a good thing
News Digest was orders of magnitude superior to this almost random and near-useless news app. Not a good corporate decision, folks. I hardly touch it now whereas News Digest was an organized twice a day must read. The customizable vibe idea is theoretically good, but in practice leaves much to be desired...your algorithm needs a bump in its AI.
Miss the old yahoo news 3/5
Some fun stories, but I miss the old format and focus
Horrible App 1/5
By I GOT TAKEN!!!!!
Can't even post on hear!! Best fix those Bugs VERIZON WIRELESS! AND I HOPE YOU KEEP OUR CRAP SECURE FROM UNKNOWN HANDS!!! YEP VERIZON PURCHASED YAHOO!! LETS PRAY THERE VERIZON EMPLOYEES ARE NOT LIARS AND THIEVES!!
They love to censor you! 1/5
They censor people way too much while other people can use an opposing view with tons of vulgarities within the posts.
Let's hope Verizon can drain the Yahoo swamp and keep your accounts safe. A lot of people are experiencing this now. They've had too many security breaches already. Good luck Verizon! This has been going on for over a year now. I've actually seen them remove your comments or thumbs up or down literally as you are still logged on to the article's comments section.
It works 4/5
Works as advertised and meet all expectations.
Yahoo Weather 5/5
Very informative and useful App.
Great News Source 5/5
Newsroom review 4/5
Enjoy the app. Updates pretty frequently as news occurs. Posts give additional opinions. Would like it more if stories didn't repeat. Like that it refers reader to related articles.
Easy to use 5/5
I find this app an easy way to browse current events.
It skips pages when going thru a list.
Great app for latest news 4/5
Yah it's good, no complaints from me
News app 3/5
Have to agree with others about missing news digest. It was concise and clean. This new app has way too many fluff stories. I also think it's awkward maneuvering the 5 headline stories. Still wondering why it was changed.
Why is it so hard to post? 2/5
Whether a review or feedback on a news item, it it not obvious or intuitive as to how to post a simple commentary on your thoughts after reading an article? Do you just not want feedback or do you have to have the ap to do that? I don't want more aps sucking the battery life from my phone! Think about the user please!!
I hate this app 1/5
Every time I want to write a comment to a news story it's nearly impossible. So frustrating.

Bring back yahoo news digest 1/5
Why in the world did you guys get rid of Yahoo News Digest? It was one of the very very few Yahoo products that actually created unique value and could not be replaced elsewhere. No wonder Yahoo got sold for pennies because they continuously fail to really understand user needs and how to create products with unique values.l. Completely ridiculous, how can you call this confusing cluttered piece of junk Newsroom a replacement for YND?! YND was my only way to stay up to date with the rest of the world, just spend 15 min reading day and night and I would've known more about the world than 90% of my friends. And now I have to open these ridiculous overloaded apps and hunt the most recent trending news myself. Way to really take a step backwards Yahoo. So disappointed and angry. Bring back YND! You might as well have the newsroom team do YND instead. I'm sure retention is a lot more sticky for YND. Only other unique thing about Yahoo is its fantasy league so please don't get rid of that either. SO ANGRY!
Not a replacement for yahoo news digest. 2/5
Too much click bait and vapid celebrity stories. But if that is what you want then I guess it's fine. Also, I couldn't care less of what other people think of the news stories. I just want the important and interesting news that yahoo news digest provided, that's it.
• Not useful. 1/5
By Time Squire-in-Training
Was: "Not useful as a Yahoo News Digest replacement."
Now: "Not useful."
I was really missing the now-defunct Yahoo News Digest app today, and wanted to use an aggregation sourse other than Apple's News, which I've been using almost exclusively since Yahoo News Digest went bye-bye. So, I tried the newly updated version of the Yahoo Newsroom app. I don't know why I bothered. (Unfounded optimism?) Even ignoring the fact that at one point the app completely locked up for a couple minutes before finally crashing out to the springboard and relaunching... Even ignoring the ads masquarding as articles in the feed... Even ignoring all the low-quality articles included in the feed... This app still actively inspires me to want to avoid it. Back to Apple's News app.
Locks iPhone up 1/5
After update iPhone latest iOS freezes while in app. Have to hard reboot to get it to work.
Great App 5/5
By BigD, TX
Newsroom has ALL the news in one place! So much of interest I just keep reading! Great job! Great app! Great improvements!
Newsroom is great! 5/5
By tommy r.
I enjoy Yahoo!'s newsroom the best. It's not slanted either way. It's more factual and let's you make your own judgements. Thumbs up here.
Great app 5/5

The Best way to get what is happening and to the point! 5/5
Love the applicability and accuracy of their reports and sources-balanced and fair!
The best news ever. If you have not tried it, you are missing something special.
Is this the new inquirer? 1/5
Is this app showing news or looking for clicks? Some news are hiding amongst tons of irrelevant and senseless stories. And this was the replacement for the yahoo news app? I can't see how.
Best "up to the minute" mobile news app!! Wish Apple could make a news app for my Mac OS too. 5/5

Worthless news app - 0 stars 1/5
Newsroom app from Yahoo is very poor replacement for the former Yahoo app, which had been my goto news app for years.
Not bad 4/5
No issues so far!
Great app 5/5
Fast current news! 5/5
Very poor replacement - bring back yahoo news
Where's Yahoo News Digest??? This is incomparable 1/5
This app is poor compared to Yahoo News Digest which was replaced by it without warning or notice... Merely an "oops" error message. At least explain to us loyal YND users...
It has no real substance, many tabloid-like tales. It is certainly not as well done, informative nor as elegant as Yahoo news digest. I will be deleting it promptly.
Hardly a replacement for news digest 1/5
By Charista Killian
This is a terrible watered down version of my favourite app-News Digest. I don't want to learn about fashion and celebrities and read all the twitter feeds of fans. This is a massive miss Yahoo- I dont know what you were thinking, but I will not be starting my day with this app anymore
Excellent app 5/5
Quick info on interesting news 5/5

It's ok. 3/5
By Frustrated N+OTES USER!!!!!
I don't get a chance to watch much news on tv so this gives me some news, whether it's real or fake I don't know.....
It's just not Ok 1/5
Liked the previous format much better. Why fix something that isn't broken? Please explain.
Great updates 4/5
All I need to say great updates. ☝️
Excellent App 4/5
Great source for news! I thoroughly enjoy it!
I miss Yahoo News 4/5
This is ok but I miss your replaced app Yahoo News.
Clickbait at it's best... 1/5
This is a terrible app, no replacement. If you came here because of News Digest, run the other way.
Good news source 4/5
Has a wide range of issues and provides enough information to be interesting. Would be better if the tabloid type story was covered less
First amendment rights pushed to limit 3/5
Too much celebrity silliness. Too many hate-filled trolls. When does the healing begin, not by anonymous trolling. Some great stories and some really sad ones. Be well readers.
Nowhere near as good as News Digest. Terrible replacement 1/5
In 8 years of owning an iPhone my favorite app of all time was Yahoo!'s News Digest. They (yahoo/Verizon) quit supporting that app and suggested this one. Bad move. This is really sub par. It's inconsistent in its content, it puts weird click-bait stories right next to important stories, it recycles content, the banner headlines scroll too fast, the writing is very inconsistent. Also, I don't need huge comment sections.
Please bring News Digest back. It was elegant and well written.
It was a mistake to shift resources to develop this app when News Digest was such a good product.
