Microsoft News app reviews

  • Mostly Left Wing News 3/5

    By Cobber100
    Good recap of the days news, but don’t expect to see much balance of political views. Most of the sites posted are left leaning.
  • Microsoft news 5/5

    By Sh Moos
    Very informative news
  • Crash on iPhone SE 1/5

    By JJA1911
    Great news app that crashes at startup most of the time. With phone in portrait mode, the app Starts in landscape mode with half of screen blank. Opens ok after crashing. Please fix this otherwise great app.
  • Adds to confusion of fake news 3/5

    By IpeToo
    I like the app. Because it won’t allow me to choose what sources I want to see, I can’t filter out Fox-fake news, nor all the ads posing as news. How about just a simple news site, and let the fluff content find a new home?
  • The very best news app there is. 5/5

    By Hazeldad
    July 2018. I have used them all, but this is now the very best one out there. The latest version allows you to select from three different views: the standard view, compact, or text only. This is really an exceptional feature. The strengths of this app is that it collects news from a wide variety of reputable sources, including both conservative and liberal perspectives. You can also add your own topics, and you can put everything in whichever order you prefer. You can scroll from article to article without having to go back to the main menu, and these articles will fill almost the entire screen. That makes it easy to use and efficient on one’s time. Very nice. This app strikes the right balance between text and pictures for the top level menus. The pictures are helpful because they quickly identify what the topic is, but they are small enough to make scrolling quick and easy. The headlines are detailed enough to identify the topic as well. The scrolling both within and between articles is pretty smooth. The font in the individual articles is consistent throughout as opposed to mimicking the original source. Personally, I think this consistency is a plus. Text is in a clear, bold and easy to read type. (Size is adjustable, but only with three options.) Finally, it is reasonably uncluttered as far as advertisements ago, and that is always a big plus. There are advertisements, to be sure, but they are clearly marked “sponsored“, and when you are scrolling through the articles in order, they are skipped. The only way you see them is if you click on them from a top level category or inside an article. Typically, there is only one per category or article. This seems reasonable to me. Overall, this latest revision is really well designed, and is now the very best news app available for those who are looking for reliable information from a variety of sources in a well-designed package, IMHO. Developers also appear to be reading the reviews, and responding to them when they can. This is my number one news app these days. Tip: When organizing your favorites, you will have to put your finger on the selection icon and hold it there for a second or two before you can move it. Another Tip: If you are really interested in international news, you can just change editions. For example, changing to the Canadian edition brings up a great selection of news from across the country within a couple of seconds, much more than you would see simply by adding it as a topic. Very impressive. One improvement: Having the ability to select news sources rather than just topics would be great, but given that there is a good range of perspectives included, I don’t think this undermines the five star rating. Second improvement: it would be nice to have the option to not have to see the “my news“ section or to place it where I want.
  • Great App 5/5

    By Driven42
    This app is not like the rest. Gives you up to date information and have a great format!!!!
  • No way to change layout 3/5

    By gwangell
    There is no way to change the layout in the new version as the description says. Despite removing and reinstalling a couple of times there is no choice available in the settings.
  • Does not work on new IPAD Pro 1/5

    By 237West
    Purchase new IPAD Pro a back in November and this app never worked.The app, when launched displays a white screen then a message appears stating that the app is not available at this time.
  • Right wing propaganda 1/5

    By SergeiT
    This app promotes right wing propaganda outlets mixed in with normal news (as imperfect as that already is).
  • Timely News 5/5

    By Gap1949
    My first choice for breaking or urgent news each day. My “go to choice”. 👍👍
  • worthless 1/5

    By fed up with msn
    wont load stories and images properly. halts and freezes constantly. takes you all day to read a few articles. UTTERLY WORTHLESS. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME INSTALLING IT could not have said it better myself. a piece of absolutely worthless crap. tap on the headline and pic on the main page and the useless p.o.s. opens with the same pic and headline and a whole bunch of white.....no print at all.
  • Old 3/5

    By paulped
    To many old stories
  • The sponsored ads are the worst. 3/5

    By Geronimodecepcionado
    I hate the sponsored ads that appear as fake articles. I liked the old version of MSN news better.
  • Crashes on start, only sometimes loads 1/5

    By blippycheese
    Embarrassing... just crashes. Is this unique?
  • Biased news 1/5

    By bguy_1986
    Seems like a lot of biased news.
  • It was great and then got buggy 2/5

    By dan15382
    What happened to this app in the last two months? Pages would go blank and now my custom topics stopped refreshing. It seemed to happen when Microsoft launched the Hummingbird AI news app. I think I am going to start hunting for a new choice.
  • Excessive left wing bias 2/5

    By rch3240
    This app is not balanced, which is most clearly seen in the “fact” check section that focuses completely on Donald Trump. Just because a disrupter challenges the made-up narratives of the anti-democratic Democrats and other Washington insiders doesn’t mean said disrupter is 100% wrong. The fact check section seems quite fact free. Left wing opinion is not fact. If Microsoft wants to advocate against a President and a political party, it is disingenuous to do so in a news app and especially in their (un)fact check section.
  • Great app when it doesn’t crash 3/5

    By Kohei's Pop
    Regularly hangs on launch. When it runs, it is great.
  • Man news 1/5

    By dfhrscnifdzvbssrhbdddyygft
    Repeat the same story in several different sections.
  • Nice interface to view ads 2/5

    By Forced1234
    The layout and interface is nice, but it’s slow to start and hides advertisements everywhere. Going back to Apple news.
  • Irrelevant news, too many ads. 3/5

    By Roy11I
    Title says it all. There’s too much clickbait for this to be a serious news app, and the news that isn’t clickbait is horribly curated by MSN. Google’s offerings somehow know exactly what articles I’d be interested in, and yet, although I’ve already fed Cortana and Bing a bunch of keywords for my interests and specified what topics to display, they still manage to come up with irrelevant articles. That being said, it does fit with the theme of fluent design, which I’m a fan of, and it is free, so the price is right. I just wish it was actually better at being a news app, and not another advertising hub. (That being said, it’s horrifying that Google has scraped so much info into my advertising ID, but this is a case where it’s actually kinda convenient, so, this is alright I guess.)
  • Very good but crashes when I do the search 4/5

    By KenDeng1603
    Microsoft News are very good for me, the news are related to my interests. But it usually crashes when I do the search.
  • Way too far Left for me. 1/5

    By LynnJ42
    If you enjoy reading all the “Fact Checking” of our Presidents “lies” this is for you.
  • Greatly Disappointed 1/5

    By Wellingshire
    As a long-time user of MS products, I tried it, hoping for the best. I found this app to be most disappointing, so I promptly deleted it. Surely Microsoft can do better, perhaps by taking a lesson from Feedly.
  • Just Deleted It 2/5

    By Starbox189
    Tried it out for a month or two. Sick of the biased anti-Trump news stories. Just deleted it.
  • Crashes on opening 1/5

    By gr8frank
    I see others have the same issue.
  • Latest version crashes on launch 1/5

    By RaceH2O
    Most of the time when launching, the app appears and then disappears. I have to relaunch it several times before it comes up and is usable, only to repeat the cycle later in the day when I reopen the app. This problem is new, so not sure why it is occurring. Would like to have an option to eliminate ads (paid subscription?). It is a great app when it is running.
  • Needs better local news coverage options 3/5

    By Secretkpr9
    The local news section seldom if ever has any LOCAL news. It merely repeats the same national news information. Why have the option if you aren’t actually going to see LOCAL news. The option to pull up all of the local news stations and scroll through is an awesome feature and it used to work fine in earlier versions, showing several local news stations. Now almost completely pointless. Hope it changes soon.
  • It keeps crashing! 2/5

    By K0315
    Please fix. I’ll try it again sometime.
  • Pure propaganda 1/5

    By Yawtan
    If you like your news filtered through the viewpoint of left wing journalists and their DNC propagandists (the MSM), then is for you.
  • Not enough articles 3/5

    By Cookie0721
    Need moar articles
  • No update 2/5

    By Westermeister
    When I come back to the app after 2 hours, i have to scroll all the way to the top to update.
  • My news. 4/5

    By Bocce King.
    I enjoy reading “my news” each day. It is informative and up to the hour. Keep it coming.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By nyharry
    Awesome service great news for me to keep up on current events
  • Best one so far 5/5

    By vic4654
    Easy to navigate. Always up to date.
  • Great news source. 5/5

    By rasmd1
    I used to be addicted to a google news, but it’s new format and content leave me blahhh. This site came along just in time,
  • Olive oil 5/5

    By Belwiz
    Taloucha from tizighenif is the best olive oil in great kabylia
  • News 5/5

    By Runnin RN
    Thanks
  • A better visual experience than apple news 5/5

    By Fourth-Density
    I liked apple news until they changed the view. I typically read my news on my tablet while it’s in landscape mode while propped up. Apple news now has a large panel on the left side while viewing and it greatly obstructs and negatively impacts the viewing experience. I found this app after the change with apple news and like it better.
  • Complete & free 5/5

    By Audreydrex
    The most complete free news app available today.
  • Too much 4/5

    By jimalmack
    To much liberal news. Need more positive news.
  • Excelencia informativa 5/5

    By Agradecido Granda
    Es uno de los mejores noticieros
  • MSNBC News 2/5

    By JuvatPilot
    You keep running the same stories over and over every day. Obviously your MSNBC news app is a bastard child that doesn’t warrant your real interest enough to update it more regularly.
  • Great news source 5/5

    By danknoxsf
    Early to use.
  • So far, so good 4/5

    By Paul3.2
    I’m enjoying the diversity of this news source so far. I don’t like having a heavy and constant liberal slant nor conservative slant. Just want the news without the sources spin. Thank you!
  • Good App 5/5

    By EuBeAr
    Very good App.
  • Slideshows cut off 1/5

    By IBEW444
    Slideshows stories are always cut off in second paragraph, makes it useless to try to read stories
  • This Was Awesome 4/5

    By Fred Flintstone2015
    This News App Was Doing Awesome Up Until Some Point Of This Year, Because Now They Are Doing Awful, & I’ve Had Some Issues With Apple News App But Nothing Like How Have With This News App.
  • Doesn’t support Arabic language 1/5

    By ie_ksk
    Doesn’t support Arabic language
