Fix the app. 1/5

App reloading causes user to lose article 2/5
By Jufish Bong
The app refreshes too much. When I click on a Push notification to go to an article, the push notification goes away (this is expected behavior). But, when I switch the app (for whatever reason, e.g., to check a text, look something up, etc.), and go back to Google News, the app refreshes and the article I was reading is lost. Sure, I can go to My Activity, but I would rather the app be in the same state that I left it until I Manually refresh.
So annoying! 1/5
Every time I tap away from the app to send a text or anything it loses my place. It's so annoying to have an article disappear when I'm half way through it.
It has some imperfections 3/5
I like reading the news. However, because I looked up a movie once because I had seen it or because I searched for a band I like, it doesn’t mean that I want to see a news story on every tiny move the band makes or every paparazzi report on the actor in the movie. Yes, I’ve tried the “show me less of this” option but then the app picks another topic it thinks I’m intensely interested in. Enough?
I can’t get enough of google! 5/5
Fix immediately 1/5
Why is Fox News NOT on the list of 50 available news sites on this app? Yet, many Fake News sites (CNN, NYT, etc.) are? Fix this immediately if you want more stars from me.
Says “Check Internet Connection” often 1/5
Can’t get news a lot of the time because the app gives and error message claiming I have no internet connection .
I close the app, open again, still cannot retrieve news and get error message.
I have plenty of available memory on my phone and have iPhone XS.
I’ve even tried closing other apps as well, wondering if that was the problem (too many open apps), but that’s not it either.
I tried to get app support, but it just directed me to the web, where the new new app is introduced. No way to send private message to address this issue.
This is the new news app, and it’s not working for me too much of the time.
Since I can’t seem to write to support, I’m posting here.
Hope you can fix this glitch.
Looking for other apps for news to replace this until it is fixed.
Doesn’t allow you to view latest stories first 3/5
Google News would be great if you could organize it to where you get the latest stories first. I am trying to keep up on the latest Lakers news and I’m having to sort between stories from 2 days ago and 2 hours ago
A great stand-in app for a rainy day. We use this app most every day.
Open in browser 2/5
It is ridiculous that you need to navigate though two layers of menus to even find the option to open a page in your browser app.
I get it, is it unfair that iOS doesn't let me make Chrome my default browser? Yes.
Should Google take it out on users by making it so ridiculously hard to open a page in Safari? No. Stop these petty design wars.
Location Doesn’t Work 1/5
Every one of my google apps recognize exactly where I live in Maine. My go to weather app recognizes where I am. Even weather.com will change to my location in Maine if I input my zip. This app, Google News, somehow keeps saying I’m somewhere in the middle of Kansas and provides no setting for changing it. Useless. I’ve been used to very reliable, useful, and easily managed apps from Google, so this one comes as surprisingly but completely disappointing.
No Fox 5/5
Love google news from all sources but Fox. Do not support Fox News and for that reason will not watch or read anything from Fox. This is due to Trump.
Works well enough but there needs to be a thumbs up/down for the recommended articles. I can do without the celebrity drama.
Constantly signing in to subscribed sources 2/5
Subscribed to NYT or Washington Post? Better be ready to sign in to those sources every single time you reopen Google News. No, it won't check your subscription status for you. It'll ask you to verify your subscription. You'll then click a button and, poof, verified. Again and again.
Frequent crashes and blank screens 1/5
Something has happened to Google News. Screen often goes black while scrolling or defaults back to home screen. 🙁
너무 좌파로만 편향적!!! 2/5
가장 매이저 언론인
조선일보, 동아일보가 매체 선택란에 없다니!!
No zooming. 1/5
Most every site has a fixed font from the creator, which is fine because they can make a very pretty design. However most sane apps out there allow the OS to zoom. Googles app does not, not on iOS or Android.
Which is why I won’t pay for any subscriptions, even though I’d like to.
Lots of garbage; doesn’t remember where you were 2/5
For some reason, Google News thinks I need every single Carolyn Hax (advice) column every time I open the app, and that I need to read every single article ever written about eczema (and, of course, especially *products* for it).
It also doesn’t remember my place — if I’m reading an article and have to exit (but not close) the app to, say, answer the phone or send a text, when I return, it takes me to a (refreshed) home screen, with no way to return to where I was. Fix this, Google, and maybe you’ll become my go-to news app. Right now I only use it when I need to search for something, since the otherwise-far-better SmartNews doesn’t include a search function.
Too many ads. Too many articles that require payment
Can you don’t take advertisements in the app
Don’t waste your time on Google News 1/5
Google News is getting worth and worth.
I want news from legitimate sources, such as the news agencies. I want world wide news: India, Africa, ...There is no way to exclude shaky / partisan news organizations. There is no way to exclude subjects that I am not interested in. Google should get out of the News aggregation business.
My advice: follow BBC news, the Financial Times, The Economist.
Bad app compared to previous version 1/5
Used to love this app, but now the news are getting less and less relevant to what I need. Local news are stale and from days and weeks ago. They messed it up really bad.
Spot on Coverage. 5/5
Spot on Coverage of local/national/global news.
LOVING EVERYTHING ”GOOGLE” 5/5
LOVING EVERYTHING ”GOOGLE”
By YaYa 1,246,843.01
Past versions allowed me to see several stories on one screen of my phone. The pictures were static and did not bother my eyes. Now a video plays for each story and takes up my entire screen thereby not allowing me to see several stories at once. And with the videos playing so large it feels like the stories are screaming at me. I can find a way to change this.
Great for updates... 2/5
Although not too good about finding non-biased news articles (which is a challenge now days). Seems to be a bit of an agenda on what pops up, but I do use it daily.
Forcibly shows me surfing stories. 3/5
In this app you can allegedly adjust your news feed by adjusting your preferences. This helpfully allows me to never see a story about Kim Kardashian, etc. unfortunately for some reason this doesn’t work on surfing. Yes, I can stop inane pop culture headlines showing up alongside international politics, but every single day this app shows me fluff stories about surfing no matter what I do. I have never surfed, and have no interest in surfing. Why is this the one topic I can’t adjust? Surfing. Strange.
Good not great 4/5
Add a feature that allows filtering out of opinion/editorial tagged articles and I give this 5 stars
You aren’t covering Art Philosophy, Art Aesthetics, Visual Thinking
Addicted to Constant News 5/5
By Family Busyness
Love Google news, new news all the time
Better than Apple news now 4/5
Since last update to Apple News won’t work I tried this app. News is good format ok but should support larger text to make it easier to read.
Great app! 5/5
By Tzvi Reyhanian
It takes time at first to get used to. Once I got the hang of it and learned how to navigate it’s been fabulous. compared to other news apps, I see the stark contrast in the organizational quality.
For folks who like to consume news en mass, I would highly recommend giving this app a go.
Good app 4/5
It works as it should. It’s fast.
Can’t get rid of unwanted content 3/5
Google News feeds me content that I don’t want, even after telling it to show me less content of that sort. It overwhelms me with irrelevant stories and customization options do little to help.
Can’t make scrolling smooth on Android, let’s sabotage it on iOS so we don’t look as incompetent... yeah, I know it’s either incompetence or intentional... good thing Apple News is better anyway, and it scrolls buttery smooth!
10 stars best thing ever happened to me
Superior to Apple News 5/5
I loved apple news but like everything Apple now, it’s full of adds and a “premium apple news” that costs and the articles are tied into the regular apple news.
Apple won’t even allow you to write a review on the apple news app? Go figure, I have all apple devices but i feel like I am going to switch to non apple devices.
For profits 1/5
I like many things from Google but not this news app. Full of advertisement.
Nothing good about it.
News source 5/5
By Rick. WE
Found Google News / very good compilation source / wide range
Another crap newsreader 1/5
By Danny lector
Don’t bother with this. It’s serves merely as a driver to buy paid subscriptions to the best news sources, each of which shuts off after reading just a few articles a month.
More google BS 1/5
not a news app more of an add app trying to pass as news, more google bs there is a special place in hell for google
News & image doesn't match. There is no option for reading view.
Tap a star to Rate 4/5
By Nyein Nyein Naing
Crap app 1/5
Used to be my favorite news app. Now it no longer works on my phone. Every time I click on a story to read, it dies.
Fake news 1/5
By Humby Boy
So Anti Trump it is beyond being pathetic. 5 star fake news. Shame on Google
Old news 2/5
Old news from a long time ago shows up, sometimes as the majority of the news on a topic. For example on "Iran".
My favorite app 5/5
My fav news app. I use it over social media and everything. Thanks Google!!!
