Real News 5/5
I’ve relied on this app and AP for concise news reporting.
Associated Press app 5/5
No frills, just the news,
If you want totally biased news that slanted way to the left, then this is the app for you.
AP News app on my iPhone 5/5
By Nurse Jo
IT’S GREAT!! I love it. It’s one of the best news apps out there. You can quickly find and read all the news you’re interested in. The writing is wonderful — clear and concise. It also has great photos to illustrate the stories. GET THIS ONE!!
Support great journalism by using the AP app. 5/5
By Jeff Butnside
Total 5 Stars. Thanks for being society’s watchdog. And you’re not-for-profit Member-owned.
All notifications disappear when I open 2/5
I use an iPhone. I don’t usually get a chance to check my app as the news unfolds. So near the end of the day I see a number of interesting headlines in my lock screen. But if I open just one of these, ALL my notifications disappear. This is less than ideal because I then forget which news stories I want to check out.
You shouldn’t make all the notifications disappear when I open the app.
Nice app 4/5
By Jo Detroit
I like this app, it has a good range of news stories and is all in one place so I don’t have to go to numerous sites to scan the days headlines.
By Memes utopia
I updated the app and now it won’t work. I have the most recent ios. It worked fine today until I updated. Now it goes to the main screen and immediately closes. Same thing if I click on app support in the app store. Blah!!!
The SoS was let go today... 1/5
But you wouldn’t know that if you relied on the AP News app for your on-the-go news, doesn’t send notifications.
THE BEST NEWS APP 5/5
By Mark Marietta
The AP app is far superior to all others. Straight, balanced, accurate news. The breaking news is faster than all others. I depend on it.
Real, Balanced, Objective News 5/5
The Associated Press provides readers with objective reporting. It is fair, balanced, and filled with facts!
Reuters and AP 5/5
These are two of my favorite sources of news and they have never disappointed me. They seem the most objective and least biased of the news media.
Unbelievably Biased 1/5
I downloaded this app and then realized how Anti-Trump the AP is. You really need an option for less than one star. You think too highly of yourself. That being said it’s time to say goodbye.
Love it 5/5
Simple App, Good Info 5/5
Quality bipartisan and unbiased info. The app isn't the best looking, and it isn't without its bugs. But for a non-profit news agency what do you expect? If you want quality journalism, AP is the way to go for sure.
Best news app available in the App Store 5/5
By Yukon Charlie
The AP news app works smoothly, allows one to scan the news of the day to find items of interest and then read them in full detail.
THE BEST NEWS SOURCE!! 5/5
If you are looking for unbiased news, this it the App!! AP is one of the worlds most respected and syndicated new sources.
New version is terrible! 1/5
Until now, I have been a big fan of the AP news app on both IOS and Android. In fact, it has been my first source for news until now. The previous versions utilized tiles for areas of news which was ergonomically efficient and useful. What nitwit did AP hire to RUIN the app? It’s now tedious to navigate and not worth the effort. I will now have to search for a more user friendly news app. Bye-bye AP News. You will be missed.
Love this App 5/5
Easy to get all the news in whatever category I select.
The best of thhe 4/5
This app does perfectly... and tons of selection to choose from!
Jimmy Olsen 4/5
Great synopsis of news that keeps me current with the mess we’re in these days.
Review from Mississippi 5/5
By Doug in Miss.
I enjoy the Top Ten articles post each day. Also, I enjoy the fact-based articles where I can read and form my own opinion.
I also have given up watching any TV news because of opinions biased. I’d rather hear it in AP News.
Keep up the great work.
Doug from Gulfport, Miss.
I love my AP News 5/5
By Gal on the go
I’m happy to have the app and the notifications that pop up and keep me up to date with what is going on in the world.
Timely and Solid News Source 5/5
Easily my favorite app for breaking news with no political slant. Also an excellent source of in depth investigative journalism to get past the headlines and really understand what is happening in the world.
By just wanna pass gov
i had to download this app for my AP gov class and i loved it. but now every time i click the app the screen turns black and the app closes. please fix it??
Is the AP app still a battery killer? 1/5
The last time I used this app it drained my battery daily. Sad. Is this fixed? Thanks!
Incomplete settings 3/5
The following 2 settings are missing in this "new" AP News:
1 - Black background option and
2 - Zero images option. Fewer images is not a replacement for ZERO images.
Please, note that the above 2 settings were always present in the "old" AP app, which was an excellent news app. I still have it and I continue to use it. The "old" AP news app is my preferred 5 star app because of the above mentioned settings. I hope you do listen because this is not a new request. In fact, it is as old as the "new" AP app!
Best, Best News App 5/5
This is by far the best news app. Stories, articles and coverage in the way they are covered, explained is very precise and professional. Excellent journalism.
My favorite source but... 3/5
Pro- I can access news wires in states I have connections to.
Con- Story content on wires is limited and sometimes connected to websites that require me to visit a news organization’s website within the app (for example The Boston Herald)and sometimes you can’t access this content at all without a paid subscription
Pro- Top stories section has a variety of content that I want to read first, and a good range of topics
Con- sometimes the most recent stories do not filter to the top so old content from yesterday might be ahead of something from today
Pro- Breaking news alerts are quicker than anyone else
Con- No stories or even just a brief description of the news alert is ever provided. You get a “story is too new” type message and it tells you to check back later-later could be over an hour where as other news organization apps will have already posted a story
I love this app and it is my trusted news source. I am however getting frustrated with it freezing, crashing and still being frozen when I exit and renter it after several attempts. A lot of the stories you’ll be reading, you scroll down and it just completely freezes. Please fix this or I am going to delete you again. Your old app was much better in terms of content, navigation and stability (2 yrs ago).
Lastest update still crashes on launch 2/5
The new update still has the problem that it immediately crashes on every launch, on two different devices, with two different device types (iPhone/iPad), on two completely different releases of iOS (iOS 11, iOS 10). It appears this is self-inflicted: the app is calling abort().
You can't politely let AP know about the problem, because the Report a Problem and App Support links just go to the AP home page, which doesn't have a place to Report a Problem or get App Support.
My/Our most trusted news source & reviewed as such by trusted journalist editors! 5/5
When editors and journalists give top reviews (AP rated # 1) and the accolades and awards just keep coming.
Democracy does go dark without such freedoms and trusted sources.
I stay informed 5/5
By Legal Lily
I appreciate receiving news alerts. The content is incisive & thorough. I’m glad I got this app. It keeps me informed of generally what’s going on in our world.
Excellent app 5/5
Well-organized, app functions well.
Works well for me 5/5
This is my go-to for news these days — comprehensive reporting with a serious effort to achieve some modicum of objectivity. That’s what the AP stands for, and not many other organizations even try for it. The proofreading is sometimes shabbier than I expect from them, but the 24 hour news cycle and budget pressures have taken a toll on everyone on that score.
Most trustworthy news 5/5
By Wireman Bill
If the AP doesn’t report it, it’s not news. I have a deep trust in the process that brings news into the AP system.
Easy to stay up to date 5/5
Easy access to AP news in on convenient - and free - app.
Love the update 5/5
I love the update and the app ease of finding the latest stories. I like the personalization of what I want to read. Much more user friendly than the last version.
A go-to news App 5/5
The AP is a top flight news organization from which most local papers and outlets get their news.
Without this app I wouldn’t be able to keep on top of what’s happening.
Great daily news! 5/5
By Fredwina in Az
Articles are well written and followed up when appropriate for additional info.
Can check easily for national or global news.
Terrific overview of various news stories across genres. Hits all the impt stories and then some. Well laid out.
News that matters. Apps great except sometimes it does not notify with sound. Pls fix. Fast reliable news. Unbiased. Just the news
Latest Update doesn’t work. It crashes on opening.
I love the AP, but... 3/5
By BiCoco La-a
I don’t receive as many notifications anymore. My settings are set to receive them, but the old app was so much more straightforward in the way of notifying when any story broke. And when I opened the app yesterday, it was still showing stories dated December 11. Not sure what’s going on here, but I’d definitely like to get those notifications like I used to on the old app!
Buggy under IOS 11.2.6 2/5
By From bad to worse
The app has become very unstable While using it under IOS 11.2.6.
The ability to navigate back to the news feed disappears while reading an article for monger then three minutes. Have to do a hard shutdown of the app to regain control.
Appreciate the wide scope of news 5/5
I appreciate the wide scope of news available through AP and note that when i read other sources, they are quoting AP.
Non bias reporting 5/5
By CD Smooth
Thank you for just reporting the news.
Great news app 5/5
All the stories that show up on your local news only faster
Obvious Bias by the numbers. 3/5
By Alberto Santorum
Here I sit and see 4/17 articles under “international” are about Israel. One nation of nearly 200. 8 million people out of earths 7 billion. What is with this myopic fascination with the only Jewish country on earth? I’ll let you make your own conclusion. It’s not healthy.
Other than that. The app is great. Usually unbiased. Well written. And willing to go where other journalists don’t.
Solid news app 4/5
Easy to read, continuously updated take on daily news. I check this app frequently through the day and am pleased with the content and format
Good source of general news 4/5
By Steve 76849
Keeps me up to date on the general headlines.
