Sort Options Needed 3/5
Please add an option to sort new stories to the top of the list. It is annoying to open the app and have three new stories that you then have to carefully look for as you scroll down.
What makes BUZZFEED so good for me? 4/5
By Newshound 61
I keep my iPad on 24 hours a day. I am constantly updated on happenings in the US and around the world by many different news organizations. BUZZFEED stands out because they have a format of sending me a timely lead article with many more stories following. I can choose to read any of them at my leisure, in the order I want. I still choose to read other outlet’s stories. Having BUZZFEED information starts me off from a good place to delve deeper wherever I choose to get it. I do wish I had an option of enlarging font size within the app/articles! When that happens I will give them 5 STARS!
The apps latest update is great. If I don’t check the news for a while, it lets me know how many stories I’ve missed without me having to search forever to find them.
Good news 4/5
Have only had this app for a sort time but like it. It's easier to read than some others and gives a different viewpoint. Some of my other news apps have re done their apps and not for the better so far this app is consistent with their format and news. Easy to read headlines and when necessary watch videos without unnecessary commentary
Super clean and easy to use. Thanks buzz feed!
Love the app!! 5/5
Very good for news!!!
I love this app 5/5
By Sorry I have it!
I find many of the articles to be interesting and informative. I only wish that they had more articles.
Essential Truth 5/5
As a journalist, I know this this app delivers verified facts from real sources.
Forget FOX’s fake BS propaganda. While you SHOULD get news from a variety of places, if you only have time for ONE? Make it BuzzFeed News.
Bad UX 1/5
I like to read buzzfeed news while I listen to podcasts and fall asleep. Now, because of the way the devs bias user input, my podcasts are continually interrupted by video ads I didn’t click or tap on ever.
Ads taking over 1/5
By K. Gardener
I have been a BF News reader for some time, but I’m about to jump ship. In the last week, video ads started popping up while reading articles...Multiple ad videos per article. Not cool, Buzzfeed. That was one of the main reasons I used this app so much. Please reconsider!!
Intrusive Video Ads 1/5
By The One and Only Randy
Video ads take over my phone when I’m reading an article. When I close them, they immediately pop back open. I can’t stop them without force-closing the app. THIS DESTROYS THE USER EXPERIENCE. THIS DRIVES TRAFFIC AWAY. THIS IS WHY PEOPLE INSTALL AD BLOCKERS. Stop this practice ASAP.
Intrusive ads 1/5
I used to really love this app for a quick, sometimes quirky look at headlines. Recently it’s become filled w hijacking pop ups and intrusive video ads. Not cool. Just deleted app.
Poor excuse for a news app 1/5
The articles are poorly written and filled with errors. Embeded content does not load. Opening certain articles crashes the whole app.
Most recently ads have become intrusive and pop up a video player when just moving through an article.
Old articles get recycled day after day, even showing up weeks or months later with no changes or mention that they have already been published.
Solid, Courageous Journalism... 5/5
BuzzFeed News has emerged as a new and growing news leader; solid, principled journalism, with courage and commitment to the charge of the fourth estate almost lost in many contemporary corporate media outlets. As one who is mindful of the sources I rely on, BuzzFeed News has earned its place on my list of trusted media resources.
My favorite news app! 5/5
I'm a news junky and I love this app.
Needs an Update 3/5
By Mistery Stranger
I love the design of this app and how it presents the articles in a feed similar to social media. That being said it needs to be updated for the screen of the iPhone X
Good stuff 5/5
Good story topics
iPhone X 1/5
Screen size is adjusted for iPhone X users.
Sub standard 1/5
Disappointing. Really sub par stories and reporting.
An enjoyable take on current events 5/5
I only got the app in the past few days, but I am pleased with the reporting. The stories are timely and well put together.
Perfect for millennials! 5/5
Great app for the 20-30 somethings
Great spot for news at a glance 5/5
New fast 5/5
Great news clips fast and easy
Pretty Good News App! 5/5
I like Buzzfeed, but all of the quizzes and stuff aren't for me, but the news app is pretty good!
Best news app in a world dominated by American politics 5/5
I love BF for the exact reason I mentioned in my title: with everyone focusing on politics, it’s nice to get notifications for news stories concerning other matters. Don’t get me wrong, BF political coverage is second-to-none, but I appreciate the balance they provide: balance other big news sites like The New York Times tend to miss.
Brisk and informative 5/5
It’s cleanly separated from other Buzzfeed ventures tied to social media. The writing is good and the content varied. Sometimes they beat the majors to post an important story.
Great app 5/5
Easy to use and good articles
Great App! 5/5
By Jai Jai Ma
This is my go to app for the news. Love it!
Very buzzfeed, very good. 4/5
The articles are written by buzzfeed, there’s no way around that. But the app is beautifully set up, customize-able, very user friendly and the alerts are useful. I appreciate that I can be notified of things I’m watching out for and get a snippet of what’s going on all around the world. If anything, this app is an indication that buzzfeed might be the next big news media outlet to replace baby boomer era media. Once buzzfeed staffers improve on their writing and investigative techniques, this could be the perfect news source.
Useful, timely, accurate.
Just right 5/5
Just enough news to keep you abreast with all the latest around the World.
Incredible app! 5/5
Keeps you updated on what's happening all the time and i do appreciate this app!
Good app. It keeps me up to date daily. 5/5
Works well and allows me to quickly read important stories.
Always great! 5/5
Organized for easy consumption. Succinct content.
Best News Source 5/5
I used to work in TV news and now this is all I can read and watch! Credible and fun 😊
It's not news... 1/5
Great up to date news 5/5
By Gave c
Great up to date news
Needs an iPad app. 4/5
The BuzzFeed app is informative, but the large print format in its made-for-iPhone app is annoy and an inefficient use the space.
Interesting topics, sometimes breaking news 5/5
I signed up because it seemed that BF News was often getting cited by news giants like WP & NYT on breaking stories. I'm staying with it because that trend still holds.
Not CNN Fake News 5/5
A way out of listening to the hate speak of CNN & MSNBC.
I luv this app!!
By Popcorn fan
This is a reliable news digest app. Fresh content, great choice of topics. Plus, a friendly design.
Quick load times. I read the NYT and WSJ everyday, but this is a fun alternative and has news that the others don't. Highly recommend.
Buzz feed 5/5
Great app! 5/5
Get all my recent news here, thanks for the speedy reports!
Pretty Decent work 5/5
Very concise, cleanly done, and puts forth investigative reporting done in the forefront too
Not fake news 😉 5/5
By K to the lo
This app is awesome and produces well written and researched articles. Love reading through the articles.
BuzzFeed should be embarrassed by their content 1/5
I like to have all the news apps give alerts through out the day so I can keep up with news as it happens. I am deleting this app now. There is no truth to what they dish out, it's not news it's an agenda.
Up to the minute 5/5
Good addition to headline news
My go to for news 5/5
This is my go to app for breaking news coverage.
Friendly format, easy to breeze through the news.
