Great, but bring back dark theme 4/5
This is a great app and does as advertised. I enjoy the new features. However, I deducted a star for the fact that it does not have a dark theme like the old app, which was one of the best feats of the old app imo.
Great app but freezes entire iPhone X every day 2/5
I use this app a lot because it is one of the best news aggregators out there. But it freezes few times a day. The worst part is that it doesn’t only freeze the app itself but the entire phone for 40s at a time ... usually happens when bringing the app up after it has been in the background for some time. Once it gets into this state, it also hangs iOS if you try to kill it.
They Broke Google News 1/5
This was a great aggregator for a news junkie like me. And they killed it with this new release. I could scroll headlines & sources, click through to what I wanted. It is ruined now. Just big colorful photos/videos, gobs of scrolling and can’t really see all the sources any more. You ruined it. 😩. Give us an option to go back to the old format. Otherwise I’m dumping you for some other aggregator.
Bad update 1/5
I hate the new style. The newer app is hard to navigate.
Can’t save searched topics 3/5
You can search for various topics, and Star them, but they don’t save to the Favorite Topic list.
Untrustworthy sources 1/5
By Adys H
Shows links to fakenews portal with Russian propaganda, "sputnik news" in Czech republic. Even I hit "see less & don't show news from this source" I still see their BS.
Nice app finally! 4/5
Newsstand was always a decent app very smooth and could find any and every publisher imagined m. This update is great more iPhone X friendly m. It needs way more smoother scrolling and how dare it show me an article that I can’t read unless subscribed to (New York times). Other than those issues it definitely needs AMP pages and just the overall google experience m. Great app though I like the new design. Dark mode too ASAP please!
By far the best news app in the marketplace today!
No good on iPad 2/5
Can't enlarge text for articles, no reader mode, why can’t you add pitch and zoom.
Wonderful product ! 5/5
By dr gu
I like google ,it give me amazing !
Unable to login 1/5
Every time I try to log in to my New York Times account it says server error.
Too busy 3/5
It would nice nice to have the options to turn off the enormous images. It’s a real scroll fest to find content now.
News news 5/5
It’s been awesome
Not doing what they claim! 2/5
By In apps we trust?
Many news sources are questionable. The app presents the option to hide these news sources, but even though the option is selected, the same questionable news keeps coming! Google can’t be trusted to do what they say!
Overly Image Driven and Thin 1/5
Underpopulated for an aggregator and biased (toward my own perspective generally). Difficult to navigate and bloated with too many shiny things. This is not how we should be consuming the news.
It wasn’t broke in the first place.
Currant and Balanced 5/5
By J of PA
First thing I read in the morning.
How annoying 1/5
I really dislike this newsfeed. Even though you select specific new sources and topics, it constantly sneaks new whack o news feeds whom I never heard of. Then I delete those, and then they feed you another set of news services that I don't want. You have no way of controlling this. Is this yet another set of Russian,Chinese, or Korean hacked news services? Please run away from this service...
News feeds are not free 1/5
By CHIEF HK
I do not like it when you click on an article and it says you have no more free looks. Do not put it on your news feed if there is going to be a charge for it.
Took what was good and broke it 1/5
By Project Gutenberg
The old app was simple, straightforward, direct, and low energy. The new app is as busy as a room full of mesquites. The glitz is so distracting that it hides the news I am trying to find in a room of flashing lights and police sirens. And it drains my battery.
constantly having to block 1/5
i’m constantly having to block the same websites &’fewer stories like this’ seems to do absolutely nothing. considering deleting entirely sticking with apple news
By Big Al 987123
Either fix this or I want my old Google News access back!
Really hate the new layout... 1/5
Please bring the old layout back for the mobile web option. The only reason why I use the app now is because the mobile web ui became unusable - so much empty space and non-intuitive layout...
Ok but Frustrating 3/5
So many of the articles are from publications requiring subscriptions. You waste your time cos you are interested but can't follow.
Where's don't show me this news button? 1/5
By Piano Cea
To much news and I can't turn them off. If I'm not interesting with an article or news I want to be able to turn it off from particular website and never see it again. Unfortunately I couldn't find that option.
Deleted the app.
Dark mode 2/5
By Josh (Yee) H.
Please make a dark mode! The all white screen is horrible for nighttime news!!!
Not as good as the old version 1/5
By Mr. IT
The headline banners are too large and take up too much real estate forcing more finger swipes to scroll through the headlines. Less intuitive to find local news articles.
Excellent collection 5/5
What distinguish this app from others it gathers all the news from all news sites across the internet so you don't have to go to multiple sites to check
You have the topic and multiple sources
The new news is horrid 1/5
Google news has been my go to for years. The new version is unusable all photos and the same stories for days on end. Guess it’s time to find a new source.
Stop bugging me 1/5
The functionality of the app is actually fine. I am frustrated by being asked repeatedly to “rate” it or be reminded later. If I am going to be pestered by an app, this is the result. Maybe I will be spare from further prodding?
Dark mode? 1/5
Where is it? It was in the previous app
By Hazim Brown
Very easy to use interface, and great to be kept informed with the latest and greatest breaking headlines.
Forced me to review 1/5
Every single day I’m asked to rate this app here it is 1 Star. Happy? I know these reviews don’t matter anyway cuz the whole system is fake. 1 Star. Thanks
Headlines, not pics 2/5
Updated my news feed and now it is all pics. I want my headlines back. Too much scrolling to get to anything I want.
Old news all better 2/5
Old version was better. I want to see headlines quickly, not one at a time with giant pics.
Best multi-source news application available 5/5
Only request: Please make notifications more customizable to individual sources and I'd use this app over others with customizable notifications!
Google News is junk.
now i can view every variant of buzzfeed news at the
Wish I kept the prior version 3/5
No dark theme that I could find. Similar layout to older version. What’s the big deal!
Fun App 5/5
I love Google News. Thank you very much.
I hate the new Google News app 1/5
It’s too busy, to hard to at a glance. I want my old Google News app back.
I can’t see myself using this one - EVER.
I would give it no stars, but I guess that’s not an option, so it’s a begrudging 1 star.
Give back dark mode. 1/5
-1 for requiring chrome.
-1 for moving my chosen topic to a new page
-1 for shilling this app in your “good” news app
-1 for no dark mode
-9001 for not supporting the troops.
Bring Back The Previous Google News Feed 1/5
The only thing I like about the new Google News app is that it isn’t so buggy. However, the previous app seemed to provide a much more useful set of news articles. Now you get a lot of flashy multimedia with less informative content.
Clunky, cumbersome 3/5
This new Google news app is bloated with photos and news agency logos. Goodbye data... It looks great, visually appealing. If you are looking for a feature of the old Google news app, such as easily scrolling through many headlines, it's not here. You can see maybe 2-3 headlines without scrolling, whereas the old app you could see 6-10. This is a form over function approach.
good at design 5/5
easy to read
Love the new Google News look, but 1/5
-Make the option “Fewer stories like this” work for real!
-Add option to delete magazines
-Add dark mode.
-Add nice icons for topics, currently they all look so messy.
-Make the font for the bottom nav thinner, like the Google News Android app.
Google news review 1/5
By the balanced approach
I downloaded Google News based on a recommendation from a nationally syndicated tech show on the radio. The app would be vastly improved by allowing the user to pick the sources where they want to get their news from. Considering Google’s vast resources to information, one would think that they could provide a more balanced view of the news. Until that happens I won’t be using Google News.
All show, no substance 1/5
By David W1
Glad I didn’t delete the older News & Weather app. This is style over substance with pictures taking over 90% of the real estate so you have to scroll forever to see all the news stories.
An online tabloid 1/5
App is ok. Like the previous one more. Really wish they would find some better content. Seems like the content is all political tabloid material. Very sensationalist.
Open links in Browsers? 4/5
By Mr MMB
There no way to open the news articles in a browser anymore. That was handy on the old app.
Selections of sources 2/5
Removing sources from my feed should be an option
