Aligned with Russian state news 1/5
As of June 2, 2020, a mouthpiece for Russian state propaganda. For neutral world news, I recommend the CBC or NPR apps instead.
End of my use of Reuterâ€™s App as a trusted news source 1/5
This â€”> TASS News Agency joins Reuters Connect
No coverage of protestors who are injured
NO RUSSIANS! 1/5
I deleted your app, because I just saw your announcement that youâ€™ve merged with Russian media.
Inelegant, and rarely works 1/5
The Reuterâ€™s TV app had a simple elegance to it: This throws all of that away, taking three extra clicks through content I do not care about to get to a video feed. Not the end of the world, but annoying.
Much worse, though, on the same device and same fiber optic internet connection, this broken new app almost always fails to play any video. â€śAudio onlyâ€ť until my connection improves? If you want to be a poor NPR One competitor, Iâ€™m going to uninstall you. Goodbye.
Great reporting but horrible ads. They kept showing me pictures of dead rats. After about the 30th time reporting the ad as inappropriate I finally had to just delete the app. In the future Iâ€™ll read Reuters on Apple News without the dead rats.
Not willing to give up privacy to watch videos 2/5
I'm a long time user of the Reuters app and the Privacy Pro app. Recently when I go to watch videos on Reuters the video never loads. Privacy Pro says it's because of all the trackers that the Reuters app tries to load.
If my cost of privacy must be devalued to watch Reuters videos, I'll simply move on to another an news app.
Apple TV 3/5
No App for Apple TV. I appreciated the option to choose how much time you had, wish it would come back. It would also be nice to be able to cast from the phone to the Apple TV until an Apple TV app is out.
It was better when Reuters TV was its own app 2/5
Will the features of the old Reuters TV app be added to this one? I used to use the Reuters TV app every day because you could choose the amount of time you had and then cast the videos to watch on Chromecast or Roku. It's so hard to stay informed these days, and I'm really disappointed that an app that had become part of my daily life is now very difficult to maneuver and use as I once did. Please bring back the time limit and casting capabilities!!
Used to be great 2/5
Iâ€™ve enjoyed this app for some time. Itâ€™s been my main source of video news, but over the last 6 months itâ€™s become almost unusable due to the fact that both the iOS app and Google Home version are buffering/pausing far, far too often. Typically once or twice per video story. I have no idea why this is happening. Iâ€™m not seeing it on other apps like Netflix, Spotify nor Disney+
Awful: Added pop-up videos 1/5
About half way through almost every story, a video pops-up that auto-plays. This is the most annoying thing an app could do and looks to me like a really greedy move. I'll get my news elsewhere from now on.
The best news I have ever seen 5/5
I like it
Popup videos? 1/5
Apparently popup videos now required? Deleted.
Random blank video?... 3/5
Whatâ€™s with the random (blank) video that opens every time you get near the bottom of an article? Quite unnecessary. The first time it happened, I thought Iâ€™d clicked on something to cause it, but itâ€™s been almost a week and it is still happening. Time to fix the glitch guys.
Pop up video 1/5
The visit CLE video ads are driving me crazy. You reach the bottom of an article, just before the ads, and boom! A blank video window pops up out of nowhere over the whole screen, and without you even launching/clicking on a video link. I donâ€™t mind ads. I just hate intrusive ads that interrupt what youâ€™re reading.
Reuterâ€™s briefing video works again, hooray 5/5
By Chris Port"
Update: a friend with previously the same issue of briefing video in the Reuterâ€™s app not working anymore told me to give it another try. To my delight, my phone app plays video again (and in great quality). Thank you for fixing the issue!!!
Old review: Apple iPhone 11 with the latest iOS updates. As of February no more ability to watch the briefing on the phone. Sure, i can watch Reuterâ€™s video on the desktop or laptop with the same WiFi connection, or even by using my cell connection as a Hotspot (which the Reuters app falsely tells me itâ€™s not good enough to watch video!!!!), but the briefing function is only available on the app. Itâ€™s now middle of April and the video still does not work. Iâ€™ve moved on despite still believing in your neutral reportingâ€” many negative reviews about your content is from people that donâ€™t realize how far to the right their other consumed media has pushed them.
Full screen garbage 1/5
By Anton Rang
In the middle of reading news, perhaps while scrolling or just looking at the screen, youâ€™ll suddenly have a full-screen ad blasting loudly at you. If you enjoy that experience, this is an app for you.
Reuters App seems to have disable IOS capability to copy and make notes from text inside stories. Unable to highlight a word, phrase or sentence. Why?
Blank videos at the end of articles 2/5
At the end of every article the screen enters into a blank video. Will not continue to use if not fixed, a basic UI error like this represents a poor overall experience. Particularly when auto play videos has been turned off
Unbiased news and app to be improved 4/5
By Hao Q.
I used to be paid users of FT, Bloomberg and other major financial news outlet. These media all seem to be slightly biased, though better than CNN or FOX. I canceled all my subscription once I switched to Reuterâ€™s.
However, the app is slightly unhandy, it would be nice to be able to switch between different editions without having to reset everything, smoother news loading is also a mandatory, customizable bottom menu and watchlist.
Please modernize and ad a reading bot 3/5
I try to have a reading bot read loud but it is extremely difficult to copy or move the article in to an online reading software. Great news but only three stars as there isnâ€™t a reading bot connected to the articles. At least add a copy all function
SW Bug? 4/5
The app goes to video mode with a blank black display automatically and randomly while the app is opened for news reading. Perhaps a promotional link opens itself without clicking? Please fix the bug. Good investigative journalist work by the way.
Why axe the best feature? 2/5
By Brett M Turner
The ability to watch a 5 minute or a 25 minute video summary of current events was the best feature of Reuters TV. My app is stuck at 10 minutes, but my partnerâ€™s app is stuck at 20. No rhyme or reason, super weird. Please give that video length slider back to us, thanks.
Best world updated 5/5
By watcher us
Amazing Journalism...Poor UI design 5/5
Love Reuterâ€™s and the non biased, facts based news you get. My only complaint is the UI design. It is very hard to skim headlines due to so many images. As a reader, I only care to see images on a headline Iâ€™m interested in. I donâ€™t need to see them all the time. Not enough of an annoyance to remove a star though.
One star for killing reuters news on roku 1/5
By waffles in texas
Iâ€™m still looking for a good news app. My wife and I would mainly get our updates on the Reuters news app on roku because you could set it to 5,15,or30 min for how much time you had. Great app! Sadly this app is just like every other out there. Reuters please bring back a roku app.
How unfortunate for future generations 2/5
Is there any source bias free news???
Please Report facts not opinions. Leave the opinion for the reader.
Opening sequence is ridiculous 1/5
It clogs the rest of news. No one asked for it, and many have deleted the app because of it. It cannot be disabled in settings either. Just disgusting!
Click bait 1/5
Just a bunch of click bait
Shame on you! 1/5
This is pro CNN democratic instrument of propaganda.
Unusable App 2/5
By Hunter Holder
We used to watch Reuters on Apple TV every day. Since the Apple TV app no longer exists, itâ€™s only possible to watch it on iPhone or iPad, which isnâ€™t how anyone wants to watch 30 minutes of news in the morning. There is no option for Airplay, so news is stuck to your portable device. Unfortunately, this means weâ€™ll no longer be able to watch Reuters in the morning.
What this isnâ€™t free?!! 1/5
By Cha-Cha Mermaid
I was searching for an app with solid news so I touched this but then it immediately said- â€śYouâ€™ve been charged.â€ť There was no price listed in the App Store. I cannot trace and undo it and havenâ€™t read an article yet. How to undo this?
Clunky app, no AirPlay 2/5
I love watching the 30 min segments, but wish it worked over my AirPlay. Since it canâ€™t play in the entire house I end up using other platforms
No casting -lost a user 1/5
The TV app that allowed casting was amazing. I was a Reuters addict. This new app does not allow for casting or if it does the UI needs help.
Lost customer because you took away the feature that mattered the most
Canâ€™t choose and look up words in dictionary 4/5
Please revert this feature back, so that easily for non-native users to read the news well
Reuters Tv bring back 1/5
By Diego puerto rico
The ability to select the amount of time to view the news was great for me. Now this app is just like any other news app.
Good but not great 4/5
I like the collection of articles. What I find frustrating is that notifications donâ€™t link to the stories. I get the notification, click on it, and it takes me to the general news screen, with no sign of the story they sent me the notification for. And often the news there is outdated. Example- I get a notification that Congress has passed the stimulus bill about a little while ago (itâ€™s 2pm). Click on it, the app opens, and the only thing in the list of stories is one from 6am saying itâ€™s expected to pass today. Had to go to the CNN app to find an actual news story on how it went down and the outcome. Iâ€™m turning off notifications because theyâ€™re worthless.
Removed Apple TV support 1/5
Please include this Reuterâ€™s TV feature 4/5
Love the consolidation, but the option to specify how long I have to dictate which segments make it in was amazing. Please consider bringing that over đź¤“đźĄş.
Has problems with notifications 3/5
A good app, but the push notifications donâ€™t always lead to a storyâ€”especially regarding updates about coronavirus, you can follow the notification but it only takes you to the coronavirus live updates page, not the story from the notification itself
Bring back offline ReutersTV 2/5
Why would this app take out the greatest feature of the app it replaced? Offline viewing of ReutersTV was amazing and they took that feature out. This app is also way too cluttered for the generation of people using smart phones. Please bring it back or make it a feature on this app.
Canâ€™t play video 2/5
By useless app after update
Since downloading the new Version Iâ€™ve been unable to watch the 15 min video briefing. Iâ€™ve deleted and reloaded the app twice and still no luck. Bring back Reuterâ€™s TV
Great App 5/5
A flexible way to ingest news. Especially love the ReutersTV integration.
Would appreciate Dark Mode support for the iOS widget. Itâ€™s the only widget I have with a light background.
Edit: Also want to note that the font in the widget might need to be bolder. Currently too bold to be body text, and not bold enough to be a heading/headline.
Politically neutral since the start of 2020 5/5
Seems to me theyâ€™ve taken the personal political bias out of the headline news starting 2020. I hope it lasts.
Reuters is No Longer Trustworthy 1/5
By Fuzzy Reviews
The day after the U.S. Senate minority leader verbally threatened two sitting Supreme Court justices, this hugely important story is nowhere to be found in Reuters. This story was purposely ignored because Reuters is no longer unbiased. Thatâ€™s all you need to know.
Used to like Reuterâ€™s, but too many push notifications 1/5
By assdfghksstvbboe rev Bi
On Super Tuesday I received at least a half dozen push notifications from this app. Overwhelming!
Negative news 1/5
By Devang Vyas
You only cover negative news about India. Not a single positive story? Please stay away from my phone
No way to report an error w an article 4/5
I see an article that has a blatant error but no way to report via the app
Love the app, just one suggestion... 5/5
I love this app and the layout of my favorite topics on my homepage. The only suggestion I have is that I would love to see an app available for my Apple Watch!
