Got worse with last update! 2/5
Yahoo updated the app last week and now my I phone shows 75 notifications that used to disappear when you opened the app and read the stories! Fix this please! I don't need to be looking at this little red for all if the time showing 75 notifications when there aren't any there!
Terrible update 1/5
Ever since the recent update this app is awful. It makes you turn the screen upright rather than being able to leave it sideways. But then it still cuts off half the screen the first time you click an article. Then every time you choose another article it keeps getting smaller and smaller. I don’t understand how you can screw it up so bad. I also don’t know what “improvements” were made. Only difference I see is crap. Change it back or fix your issue
New Version Is A Step Back, Maybe Three 2/5
When I open a news story I like to read a story. I don’t want what amounts to an Instagram story. Furthermore, I cannot stomach the constant announcements telling me I’ve won an iPhone or some other such prize, especially when I cannot cancel the announcement and continue to the story. I had not used Apple smart news much, but find myself using it more and more because of the new Yahoo format. It’s a shame because I loved Yahoo news and the way it filtered stories to my tastes. Go back to what worked.
Hate the Update 1/5
Is there a way to get more than the blurb you get now when you open a story? Unless I’m missing something, I hate this update. Also dislike that you have to X out to go back instead of swiping back. Time for a new news app for me.
Can we have less drama? 3/5
No matter how much effort made to make the content to be more visually appealing, the content/story itself is of tiny attractiveness for me.
Please get and promote some good stories. Tired of the dramas here.
What happened to this app. 1/5
By Base news critic
When you go into a story the screen turns sideways and stays there also you can not read the entire story because half of it is blocked. When going out of the story the app doesn’t correct itself. I tried reinstalling the app but that did not fix the problem.
Terrible! I can’t center the page to read it. Right sides cut off! Think I’ll do that to this app. Cut it off!
Latest update 2/5
I read the news on my iPad Air and after the update..you barely can see the comments, let alone comment about a story..it also automatically rotaries, making it so difficult to get back and fort..WORST UPDATE SO FAR.. It’s broken..I’ll give it a week, if it’s not fix...I’m done with this!
Crappy update 1/5
This new update is pure junk, why does Yahoo keep changing something that used to work great?
Worst app ever 1/5
The new format with the slow-movie video headlines is a stupid and ridiculous waste of time. What a joke. Deleted.
Used to be ok 2/5
The last update ruined this app. On my iPad, everything goes the long ways and I never read vertically on my iPad. The only time I read vertically is on my phone. Fix this issue or it’s uninstalled
New Version Is A Step Backwards 2/5
I recently download version 9.0.0 that came out around Nov 16. I feel it is a step in the wrong direction. My issues are:
• Dislike the “video news” format now used for top stories. The amount of information given on a particular topic is very scant. Would like to be able to turn off the video news feature.
• When you comment on an article the message history shows it being posted against some other unrelated article.
• Most articles have a definite liberal / left wing bias to them.
• Many articles are tabloid material.
This new version is a definite downgrade.
Not able to play news videos within 1/5
No more landscape mode? Forget it..
Update : Again after update no more landscape mode
Big Disappointment 1/5
This app is just another liberal spun fake news piece of crap. Guess tgat they’re trying to compete with CNN to prove how un-American news feeds can actually become.
Everything is now a video and every other post is a “sponsored content” ad. There used to be spelling errors in 80% of the articles, I’d take that over the stupid videos. Let me read again yahoo!
I hate the new format 1/5
I want to read an article. I do not to wait as you scroll through 5 pictures with a little text. No substance anymore. And when you actually give me an article it has a link to another site which half the time does not work. Just more ads or click bait. If it stays like this I'm done.
Terrible update 1/5
The app used to be semi good, to much fake news however but now you have to hunt for everything and it seems to have even more fake junk news.
Undue update 1/5
What ever you did in the latest update, undue it. When ever I go to read a story the screen rotates and part of the page can’t be read.Not happy with it
Who Does These Updates? 1/5
Yesterday the app updated, and now it is nearly useless. How is it those providing these updates failed to notice that the "new" app is not working correctly? It is getting to the point that I am reluctant to update an app that is working to my satisfaction because the update usually does not work until several "bug fixes."
Latest up date does not work with latest iOS 11.1.2 ? Older version did well with 11.1.1
New update on 11/17 1/5
What did you guys do?? Is this Snapchat news or yahoo news??? This new layout change is bad
New version is annoying 1/5
There was nothing wrong with functionality of the old version. This update has made stories not load. It's also slow, choppy and unreliable. The main page doesn't seem to work very well.
Poor update 1/5
The new update for the iPad is no good. Yahoo just got worse by the minute. I didn’t want to post any reviews til the new update. Yahoo should call it quits
Just updated this morning and will delete the app now. Can’t read any of the stories anymore. Only get half a screen of content. Don’t know what happened, but I will try a new update if you put one out
Mostly fake 1/5
By Maria lynn kostas
Never downloaded this
Don’t want it!
Need iPhone X support ! 2/5
Need IPhone X screen support. Need to see what time it is and battery level while in app
iPhone X UPDATE!!! 1/5
By A - Wizzle
The iPhone X has been out for weeks and the app still doesn’t support the new format. Give me an update and I’ll give you 5-stars
Please Optimize App for the iPhone X screen 2/5
Yahoo is everything that is wrong with the media today. They take money from advertisers so they can disguise advertisements and dress them up as informative articles. It's one of the biggest bait and switches on the Internet today. Then the content... Yahoo will literally let anyone print anything they want to. Nobody at Yahoo verifies any information that their affiliates post. And a lot of the times you get these re-posted articles that apologize for completely lying to you. The other day they started posting article after article about some “message to white people” show on Netflix. They went off about how popular it was and how it shows that America is really racist and they need to realize they’re being racist. And if they think that what they are doing is not racist than they are most definitely racist! Yahoo blue this show up like it was the best thing that came on television… Multiple five star reviews from their affiliate site… Look at rotten tomatoes, it’s one of the worst review shows on the Internet. Google it… There becomes a problem when corporations like Yahoo and Netflix are willing to forgo profit and create stories and movies That have been widely debunked and make absolutely no profit whatsoever… Just so they can release something about diversity. It’s almost like paying for advertisements for these people… I don’t like to be manipulated! Until Yahoo and all of their affiliates can change their suggestive propaganda towards Americans, I don’t want to read a single thing on this app
Enjoying the information 5/5
I like thus app bc it gives a quick insight to various areas of the news.
Only for people with yahoo emails 1/5
By Sunflower Faraldo
You can’t create an account or make a profile unless you have a yahoo email, if you don’t have a yahoo email you have to create one. How many emails do you think I need? If it wasn’t for this I would’ve kept the app but I deleted it.
Loud auto play ads 1/5
In a recent update, Yahoo added auto play video ads that just start while you are reading articles. For some reason the volume is louder than I even knew volume on my phone would go. Don’t know how to disable these so I’m deleting this app.
This app also has mostly video articles now. If I wanted to watch the news I would turn on tv.
Needs at least some moderation 1/5
It's fun to think you can read your news then give your opinion in the comment section. But it’s dominated by bigotry I.e. a news story about minorities will be full of racist comments, story about lgbt will be filled with homophobia. Non existent moderation.
Great offbeat news site 5/5
By VA Jack
Gives another view of main stories plus tosses in some unusual ones. Doesn't appear to be biased politically.
Informative but annoying 3/5
I enjoy the news stories, but I'm tired of the "rate us". So I'm rating you. Ask once maybe twice about a review and then let the reader rate you when they can.
Remove the comments section permanently 1/5
By and it is written
It is pretty vile and repulsive coming mostly from the far right. It’s a mixture of stupidity and ignorance.
Fix it 1/5
Had to delete this off my phone and tablet. Every time I open it, I get an “oops” message.
App hangs and freezes constantly.
Please bring Yahoo News Digest Back. This one is just bad.
No more KardASSians 3/5
By Rio Gojo Lane
Appreciate the app. Would appreciate more if app was able to filter out articles linked with viruses and anything to do with Kardashians. They're repulsive narcissist that readers do not value and are sick of their over exposure.
Great app 5/5
By Seedy Kunta
Great app. Helps me catch-up on a 90 minute train ride each way
Great app 5/5
Easy to read always up to date read everyday the best!!
Newsworthy notifications 4/5
By Patrica williamsburg
I do appreciate the pop up notifications about the latest news, both national & global, since I don't often have time to turn in the news or read paper.
Good news app 4/5
By Butter spider
Use this alot. Some stories are good. Some are very weak with useless information. Click bait. Also seems to use a lot of cellular data.
Very informative and updated!
Great app. 4/5

Good overall… And a big relief from the propaganda of FOXNews!
Good app 4/5
Quick and easy information. Good for quick update on what's going on
The Best / 1 5/5
Fake news stories 1/5
By Strat amp
They make news instead of reporting. Meaningless stories.
