Shame on you for not reporting the ORourke hacking story before the Texas senate race. Iâ€™ll start really scrutinizing your articles in the future.
Great, but experiencing a notification issue 4/5
Love the app, love reuterâ€™s overall.
Lately, however, when i tap a â€śbreaking newsâ€ť notification, it takes me to the home page of the app instead of taking me to the breaking story.
Updated app is terrible 2/5
The updated app is not good. Instead of giving me new news I keep getting news from 3 4 months ago. Iâ€™m thinking of deleting the app.
Too many duplicate news stories 3/5
The same stories appear in every category, annoying!
Poor Data Buffering 3/5
Would not recommend if you enjoy video news: this app has constant issues with video buffering.
I recently switched over from Android device (and Reuters android app) and now spend my morning commutes wanting to throw my phone out the window.
This app version has severe video data buffering issues every single time I open it. Videos sometimes never load, skip, and/or just pause right in the middle. I canâ€™t watch 60 seconds straight without issues.
Any other app on my phone seems to work flawlessly for streaming video.
Liberal bias 1/5
Articles posted do nothing but divide this country more. Everything is anti Trump and how great the democrats are. Stick to posting facts and let the reader form their own opinion. Reuters is like every other media outlet thatâ€™s promoting a political agenda. Journalism is dead at Reuters.
Excellent news reporting. It is as unbiased as possible. Even more so the AP. 4/5
The app lets you choose what sort of news that you want to see. All news apps are like this. However, I can only get breaking news sort of alerts. My suggestion is to allow users to choose out of their categories on the app and get specific alerts for this categories.
Love Reuterâ€™s news- not current app 2/5
By SusieBee 2
Slow or doesnâ€™t load when swiping between articles ( iPhone ). Sometimes have to go back to home page between each one. Iâ€™m not completely against the effort toward more personalization but it donâ€™t like the way its done here. I feel too boxed in. Also, after I read the main page and go to one of my â€śpreferred â€ś sections I wind up scrolling through a lot of articles I just read. I do appreciate your attention to and attempts at improvement.
Great app and concept but fails on Amazon Fire Stick 3/5
After the first story or so the app crashes on Amazon Fire stick while all other apps work without failure.
Voiceover in accessibility 1/5
By Temple Musiq fan 81
This app is still inaccessible with voiceover.
The latest update is not accessible with voiceover.
Pretty good but let us subscribe to remove ads 4/5
This is a pretty well-done app with some nice, unique features. Overall Iâ€™m pretty happy with the app and Reuters content. A few suggestions/feature requests:
1. I would really like the opportunity to subscribe to a paid version that removes ads
2. Links to videos should be identified with an icon or prefix
3. A bit Trump-obsessed
Too many notifications 4/5
Great app for news with a nice UI and quality reporting. Finally had to turn off notifications though - there are far too many for things that just arenâ€™t important. I would like true breaking news alerts only. That shouldnâ€™t be more than a few times per month.
Rueters news marred by this app 1/5
You are not creating frivolous app this is supposed to be news. Juvenile developers ruined Reuters with large pictures terrible layout and most of all too many clicks to navigate
The best news app - NO fake news here! 5/5
This Reuters application presents the best, unbiased news on a daily basis. It serves it up and we could category should I can find what I want to read about. It is 100 times better than either CNN or Fox or MSNBC where you get 99% biased editorial and 1% real news. Let alone some of the fake stuff that CNN pushes out the doors now a days. I am huge Reuters fan really glad that they have the integrity to break the news to us, unbiased, and unfiltered.!
Best news app 5/5
By battery 123456
Honestly, fantastic app. All around great design. The developers thought of everything!
Wish I could change the font size 5/5
The fixed font is too small on my iPhone 6s+
Update: thank you for adding the option to select font size.
Update is horrible 1/5
Used to be compact and concise. Now itâ€™s a bloated mess.
Reliable, unbiased news 5/5
Great journalism. The Reuters news app unceasingly provides politically neutral and fact filled reporting. I rely on this app for most all my news. The format allows quick title scanning, and viewing of the first article lines. Itâ€™s easy to then jump to the full article. It doesnâ€™t get any better.
Irritating Boeing Commercial = Goodbye For Now 1/5
I really like the app, but unfortunately I have to switch to HaystackTV because of the irritating Boeing PR commercial that plays after nearly every story, apparently an attempt to sugarcoat the problems caused by Patrick Shanahan, who killed thousands of Seattle jobs while at the company, killed hundreds of passengers in recent crashes of the planes he oversaw, and promises to kill everyone as head of Trumpâ€™s redundant Space Force (apparently, nobody told them about DARPA or NASA). Please make it stop!
Canâ€™t read news with all the commercial videos popping w 1/5
I would give it no stars.....canâ€™t read any articles because a Boeing commercial keeps popping up
Political pop ups 1/5
Every 2 minutes a political ad will pop up. Reuters this is unexpected and annoying. I read Reuters because itâ€™s unbiased nature, I now feel there is a bias towards profits not truth. This swarm of ads has caused me to delete the app and leave this review.
Well Done Reuters 5/5
Thanks for adding the feature â€žtext sizeâ€ś. Your app with your excellent editorial content - so needed in these times of lies and misinformation - is now again my favorite news and business news app.
Thank you for bringing back the read offline option, but it doesn't work as it should 5/5
Edit:I'm cautiously optimistic that the new update may have improved things, I'm changing my review to 5 stars pending further problems.
I like this news app, I think it's one of the better ones in terms of content, but the read offline option leaves much to be desired and the app was much better before the redesign.
Decent news - beware scammy ads 3/5
Decent enough news app. The ads at the end of articles sure seem scam like -" Govt to pay off $xxx off your mortgage if you haven't missed a payment" - Really?
The new version is TERRIBLE 1/5
I regret so much after upgrading to the latest version. Itâ€™s not user friendly at all!
You cannot even change the size of fonts.
Non Partisan 5/5
In such a politically polarized age, they give facts and go after both sides equally. They are not the DNC propaganda networks or the nearly state run media on the other end
Poor update ... previous compact headlines were much better. Now have to switch to another news feed.
Great app! 4/5
Would like to see option for more notifications, possibly the option to choose how many or choose specific categories of notifications. Also, Reuters sticks less ads in their app than is in mobile website, I think most people respect ads and would like to support good journalism. Just saying Iâ€™d be fine with more ads.
Horrible new U I experience 2/5
The former app was more compact and easier to use. It seems like now multiple stories are on multiple pages and it just makes you waste time scrolling through stories you have already seen. I like the idea with the larger cards but it needs some work.
Best app 5/5
Best app for news
Spam advertisements popping up! 1/5
Loved this app until recently when I started seeing pop up ads for $1000 gift cards from Walmart and Verizon. You canâ€™t minimize them to read the stories even if you complete the â€śsurvey.â€ť
Completely ruined by full-screen, non-closeable popup ads 1/5
Reuters was one of my preferred sources of news - neutral perspective and frequent story updates.
However, in the last week the app has added auto-playing popup video ads that do not go away when you tap "done" -- they reappear immediately and continue playing.
Uncloseable video ad spam is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. After four years, I have uninstalled the Reuters app.
Biased and Tired 1/5
Articles posted re Kavenaugh coverage say it all! Plenty of careful selected â€śangryâ€ť looking photos (only) of the judge distributed throughout a very one-sided piece. Iâ€™m deleting the Reuterâ€™s App for good after this demonstration. Itâ€™s no longer â€śnewsâ€ť when this kind of thing is at the top of the feed. Disgraceful.
Annoying pop ups made me delete the app 1/5
I have been a fan of Reuterâ€™s news for years. Just the facts, in a simple and clean format.
Recently pop up ads for things I want no part of started appearing without an x to delete them. The only way to get rid of them was to either close and restart the ap, or share personal information by answering annoying questions.
As a result, I have deleted the app and will get my news elsewhere
Whatâ€™s up with the Walmart adds? 1/5
Wow, one of my favorite news apps become unusable. Every time I tried to read an article a add shows up covering the whole thing making it imposible to read anything. Just terrible!
Donâ€™t update 1/5
The old interface was a nice balance of news and advertising.
The new interface is inserts advertisement on the articles. It is also plagued extra junk.
How do I go back to the prior version ?
Better than Blackboard!!! 5/5
Our campus is piloting Canvas this semester (Fall 2018) as a replacement for Blackboard. And, from a student's perspective, the Canvas mobile app and service overall is MUCH more useful and accessible than the other system. Really enjoying it. The layout is intuitive and a delight to use. Mobile notifications always seem to work. And there is continuity between the web and mobile applications, which just makes sense. These things can't be said about Blackboard's apps. Looking forward to continuing to use Canvas as a graduate student. Thank you!
Does not work in landscape mode 1/5
Incredibly, it's September 2018, and the app for the apparently top news outlet does not yet work in landscape mode. Deleted.
By Newton acres
I tried to adapt to the new version. Completely disappointed by the new design. What happened to current news? Iâ€™ve deleted the app.
Stories not loading 1/5
Yes, I have service/wifi. But since the latest update, every few stories here and there will not load. Have to restart the app and then it will happen again.
Crashes and No Landscape Mode 2/5
By Missing Charts
The new update crashes every few minutes as I scroll down the news articles. Also, very upset that the developers removed landscape mode. Looks like they tried to fix something that wasn't broke.
Opinions are not notification worthy 1/5
By wary trader
Just received an alert: Some gun toting Texans and something about supporting Democratic gun control... wow did I lose respect for this news agency. Give me the same newsfeed you provide the newsrooms. Donâ€™t kill curate your alerts to satisfy or sway public opinion
App bug 2/5
BUG: After customizing the top menu, the â€śScience & Spaceâ€ť tab only shows sports articles.
The previous version of the app had a more logical, user-friendly layout. The current version has annoying vertical and horizontal scrolling features.
Sports News Listed Under Science & Space 4/5
When Science & Space News is selected, Sporting stories show up. Kind of odd, but they all start with â€śsâ€ť I guess.
Notifications Fixed! 4/5
(New) Receiving Notifications again. Thank you!!!
(Old) Since I downloaded a recent update of this app, I no longer receive Notifications on my iPhone 5c from it. Just wondering why...?
â€śtext onlyâ€ť mode gone with update ? Flashing pictures back ? 1/5
By Angry In KGN
More flashing pictures.... going in the wrong direction. I want a real TEXT ONLY mode please please. No flashing pictures.
PHishing sure 1/5
This is NOT RUETERS. It has big pictures because the right wing morons who like fat Alex donâ€™t know how to read!!!!! Only use apps from your Apple apps.
Good to go on Update with latest design 5/5
Update 9.13.18 - Latest update excellent and directly addressed issues with IPad viewing. Go forward and download. The Reuters IT team is to be commended for resolving the complicated visual issues quickly and returning this to a 5 star, go to, news app.
Original August 3rd 1 star review - This was a go to app for quick review of the daily news. The update incorporates a very significant layout change with a total different approach to viewing the information presented. Change is always difficult, but this is a completely different product best targeted for phone users. If you use an IPad or other device, this is not configured for your enjoyment and more searching will be required to see daily highlights. I did not realize this was a complete layout change or would not have updated. Forewarned is forearmed.
New and UNimproved 2/5
Really dislike the new app design. It is so much more difficult to configure it to my liking. I hate the new menu bar at the top that requires side scrolling to find a feed. I tried adding the Wire feed as suggested in the new app description and it doesnâ€™t seem to work. I donâ€™t want images in the headlines and want the most information in the least space. Why do newer apps have to be scrolled so much? Not sure why you had to redesign an app to make it more difficult to use. I donâ€™t bother anymore and get my news from other sources.
