Miss the old app layout 1/5
New app not as user-friendly as the old app
your add data allotment remains excessive.. 1/5
By stop the spinning wheel
Back it down!
Was good, not anymore 1/5
Now with the latest updates it’s become almost unusable. Very glitchy now.
Would be a great app if it wasn’t so slow! 1/5
I love AP because it’s the least biased news source around. I personally love the app’s new look and think the team did an fantastic job with the redesign. However, I have noticed a problem that was nonexistent with the previous app, and that is the slowness of the app. It doesn’t take long for the app and news stories to load, but it takes a good two seconds for the app to respond to my touch, whether that be selecting an article or simply swiping up or down. I believe it’s because of all the ads on the app. I don’t mind the ads, but if they negatively affect the user’s experience, then something needs to be done.
Can’t get past “Allow Notifications” 1/5
After opening the app, a pop-up window appears asking if I want to allow notifications. When I touch “Allow” nothing happens and the window does not go away preventing me from reading the news. Please fix.
App is Broken 1/5
Ver 2.1 makes this app worthless; freezes upon opening. Deleted & reinstalled, freezes on notification pop up. Please change app name to ‘No News Here’.
The Old AP app 1/5
Was better. I’m unable to get the new app working because it gets stuck on notifications. Do yourselves a favor at The AP: The next time your digital folks tell you they have a new and improved version of something - anything, including an app - ask them if it’s more user friendly than the earlier version. My guess is the answer will surprise you.
Latest news is really up-to-date 5/5
Thank you AP for providing the news as it happens!
Unbalanced Reports. 2/5
90% of your news reports read more like opinion pieces especially when the subject is President Trump and they are mostly negative even when the president has done something positive. Yet your writers try as much as possible, sometimes comically and blatantly, to put a negative slant on it. However, I read AP reports because you are usually first which may be due to the fact that your have an extensive network of reporters worldwide than other news agencies.
I’d seriously consider a 5 Star, but one thing... 1/5
I get annoyed with the stupid thing asking for a rating AT EVERY LAUNCH until I leave one, so take your 1 star and LEAVE ME ALONE!
Annoying animated ads 1/5
By The Quarker
Dropping this ap from my iPad due to intensely distracting spinning ads on the page I used to love it.
Betty Sin 1/5
By ....? hmmm
Bad app. Nothing is in sections. All is lumped together. Yuk. Luv the old easy to navigate news.
Since updating my iPhone 7SPlus to 11.4, the AP news app locks up when I open it and you can’t scroll through and choose articles. Otherwise I love the app.
App now freezes 1/5
Starting about the time of iOS 11.4 release the app seems to load then freezes and is totally unuseable. Deleting the app and redownloading only temporarily solves the problem
Poor replacement of old app 2/5
By S Schwarz
Number of technical problems that make this app a lot less user friendly than their older app they are discontinuing. First the font is different and more difficult to read. The color of the text is more gray than black which appears blurry to me. The size of the text is too small. In the settings the text size can be adjusted but this only applies to the heading and title, not the body of the story. There are way too many stories listed under “top stories”. Comparing both apps today, the old version had 29 top stories, this app had 50 top stories. A number of top stories seemed repetitive. Swiping from right to left is not smooth. It’s almost as if the page “catches” during the transition. Also, after swiping through the first four stories it won’t download any more articles and I have to go back to the homepage and click on the next article to get things moving again. Finally, the top ten things to know for this week has been moved to the end of the list instead of the top of the list. Since it gives you an overview of the highlights of what’s important it makes sense to have it as one of your first articles. Very disappointed in this app. I normally look forward to reading the news first thing every morning but this app makes it a chore.
2.1 is worse than 2.0 1/5
I have regretted deleting the original APNews app ever since I switched to the “new and improved” version. It is less elegant than the original, has more ads, and is less efficient to navigate. However version 2.0 is better than the latest release. If you have not updated to 2.1 yet, do NOT do so. It is less stable and often unresponsive than version 2.0. It’s easier to just read the APNews on their web site.
Stay up-to-the minute with ACCURATE news 5/5
Wonderful app gives informative, accurate news stories. Read just the first paragraph to get an idea, but many stories are much longer-loaded with background, multiple views, etc. you can specify interest in one or more categories of news. With notifications turned on, you get up to the minute reports of events as they break.
Keeps freezing up 1/5
The last 3-4 days the app keeps freezing up when you open a story. Also you guys need to edit more carefully. There are always lots of typos and grammar errors.
Too political! 2/5
AP has lost much of its credibility and become another source of left-wing propaganda

Off to a good start and an associated
Ap need 5/5
By harold 34
Excellent daily source of timely information and news. Not a lot of frills just the news
Black and white 1/5
By steve houston
I only follow AP to read the ‘educated liberal elite’ view on news, then I read Fox to see the populist view. I dream of a neutral site.
Could be much better 2/5
By Jenna Plays Dots
I like getting news flashes but when I click on them I don’t always see the story. Also I don’t like that you can’t choose more specific types of news to receive.
Stopped working iPhone 7 iOS 11.4 (new) 2/5
The app now freezes. My iPhone 7 is unable to use this app using the newly released iOS 11.4. This is my go-to app for news but now it no longer works.
A Standard in news service. 4/5
The Associated Press is one of three “wire services” I use to anchor between “points-of-view” of biased news aggregators. So glad they are still available.
Amateurish remake of good app 2/5
There’s several glitches in this new app. Scrolling through Top News, story titles will jump on top of one another, gaps will suddenly appear in the list view, and pictures don’t match the stories. The content itself is still top notch, but this new app is a step backwards in presenting it.
Dislike new AP app. 1/5
The older AP app was much more user friendly. The darker background was easier on the eyes. The larger print made it easier to read. I liked the fact that it was commercial free. And finally, I truly dislike the smaller print. 👎👎👎👎👎👎
Prefer AP Mobile 2/5
Don’t like assorted categories set up
Locks Up 1/5
Downloaded twice two days ago and locked up both times. I always looked at the old app every day and then this junk. I have tried three times again this morning . When the “enable notifications” pop up displays, this junk locks up. Good bye AP. Hello Reuters
Ask for too many ratigs 2/5
Pretty good app. Ask for too many ratings
Not liking new layout 2/5
By Cara Rosemount
I accidentally downloaded the “new” AP app several months ago and immediately deleted it and went back to the “older” version. Recently I noticed the older version was going away, so I had to upgrade. I HATE IT! It doesn’t seem as accessible, things are scattered about. Not a fan.
By grow wheels
I liked the easy visual layout of the old app much much better
Good app but liberal bias like the rest 2/5
I like the app but it is liberal bias like 90% of the news.
Old Lay Out Much Better 1/5
By W. D. W.
I agree with some of the reviews.
The old lay out was better, The person
that thought this was a wonderful idea
should be dismissed.
I hate that you always have to search
for some of your most favorite articles.
I hate the changes.
I’m very disappointed. I see these mini sections. Where is the lifestyles section.
No news-app pushing content I don’t want!
No conservative or liberal bias.
JUST THE NEWS!
Old version still the best 1/5
Not only is this new version awful, it constantly freezes which makes it impossible to read & completely useless!!!!
Spinning wheel 1/5
Ready to ditch the app completely!
Your advertisements are more important than the delivery of news, I am constantly waiting because your ads take valuable effort and time from the new download.
News breaking and accuracy. 5/5
By chym Benson
Breaking the news 1st before anyone else. Love it very much.
Real news 5/5
In this era of uncertainty a welcome repository of information.
Too small to read on iPhone 2/5
The characters are too small and I cannot expand the screen on iPhone to make them bigger. See cnn.com and bbc.com
AP delivers 5/5
By Roberta G. San Francisco
Incisive, up to the minute news that’s objective and well researched. I rely on AP at least once a day to keep me abreast of important world and national issues.
You Broke It! 1/5
It no longer works at all. I even tried deleting and re-adding it. Nice job...guess I’ll go read Reuters.
AP News latest version does work on iPhone 1/5
By Hours unreliable
The latest version of AP News does not work with iOS 11.4 on iPhone 6S
Version 2.1 still crashes on launch 1/5
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). It appears this is self-inflicted: the app is calling abort().
And there still is no way to contact the developers to get this problem resolved.
Old version allowed viewing more headlines 2/5
Old version let me read 7 headlines on my iPhone at a time. New version allows less. Old version was easier to read with black background. Harder to read with smaller text and white background in new version.
New format is bad 1/5
The old format allowed users to see US News without entertainment. Top stories are littered throughout the page with international and entertainment news with no reason. Tough to get the news I want.
Frozen on breaking news alerts pop up 1/5
I can’t even use this app. Upon starting it, a pop up asks if I want to enable breaking news notifications but it’s not possible to click on either button. Disaster! The old app was my favorite and it worked perfectly. Why change it ??
App doesn’t work 1/5
By Carter_ Carter
I can not opening the app anymore.
