Ridiculous new version 2/5
Learn to leave well enough alone. The Nov 6 version is a pain to navigate tiresome too get headlines at a glance and had the worst possible UI design. At make the spacing smaller or adjustable like you did the fonts. The excellent Reuters content is marred by the app.
Canât read news with all the commercial videos popping w 1/5
I would give it no stars.....canât 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 itâs 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 âtext sizeâ. 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.
Wish I could change the font size 4/5
The fixed font is too small on my iPhone 6s+
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. Itâs 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 Iâd 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 canât minimize them to read the stories even if you complete the âsurvey.â
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 âangryâ looking photos (only) of the judge distributed throughout a very one-sided piece. Iâm deleting the Reuterâs App for good after this demonstration. Itâs no longer ânewsâ 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 Reuterâs 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
Whatâs 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!
Donât 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? Iâve 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. Donât kill curate your alerts to satisfy or sway public opinion
App bug 2/5
BUG: After customizing the top menu, the âScience & Spaceâ 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 âsâ 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...?
âtext onlyâ 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 donât 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 doesnât seem to work. I donât 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 donât bother anymore and get my news from other sources.
By der Heilerin
Why limit the information I want to browse? The new version requests that I choose which topics to build my feed. Thatâs essentially dis allowing curiosity and random news browsing. It also more or less creates a news bubble.
Iâve deleted the app because of this since I value casual browsing of news media. I value Reuters as a source, and emailed them directly regarding this topic.
I hope Reuters streamlines the next revision of the app.
Bad "upgrade" 1/5
What I loved about Reuters was the clean, no nonsense, to the point, view of the news. The app was awesome! It was easy to use, without clutter and with tightly packed information.
The new "upgrade" is just the opposite! It seems more oriented toward delivering commercials than content. A lot of empty space (absolute no-no for a small screen device like smartphone). The stories seem all over the place.
It is such a pity because Reuters was a major new source for me that I could trust. Such trust is hard to build, especially today.
Update: The app is getting worse. After the latest upgrade articles are not always complete - just a paragraph or two and then white screen. App restart sometimes help.
Missing âThe Wireâ 2/5
I used to only use this to quickly scroll through the wire section and now it doesnât appear to exist anymore.
The Wire 1/5
With the wire section missing there is virtually no use for this app. Delete.
Right Direction 4/5
By RJ Turing
Overall, the new update is great. Improvements, however, can be made. First, there are often multiple articles covering a specific event. Grouping these related articles would make the feed more organized. Second, the pictures in the articles and headlines are distracting, at times. Although four different types of âfeed stylesâ are offered, further improvements can be made. Third, it would be great if the ads could be removed from the app and website by purchasing a subscription. Fourth, having an account associated with Reuters News would benefit many users who use the app and website across many devices. The customization settings and saved articles, for instance, could be synced. And fifth, the website, Reuters.com, needs a new design that better organizes the articles and content.
Miss The Wire 3/5
*updated after the developer response (and I think the version updated too)*. You have the topics you pick, maybe with an algorithm. It tends to drop off half the content I need & until I saw the developers response , and searched for âthe wireâ , lost a critical feature from the ap - to know whatâs going neutrally - not just favorites. Will add top stories too - but I like the wire which seems not to filter topics. Itâs better than the AP news ap.
Donât Update 1/5
This premier news agency had a 4.3+ rating before the ânew appâ released. Why change it when it ainât broke?
Itâs like they got a bunch of millennials together in a room and decided it was best to make changes for everyone without any consideration of their legacy readers. Now the application is directed to younger (and dumber) users.
My rating went from full stars to the lowest rating I can give. At least I have the BBC, AP and Bloomberg Professional Service.
Stopped using it after latest update 2/5
The new format is unusable for me. The single column vertical format does not allow me to scan the page for the articles that interest me. The previous layout was much more useful. As a result, I no longer use this app - which is disappointing because it was my favorite news source. Iâm not ready to delete it yet, hoping it changes in the future.
Couldnât leave well enough alone. Another quality app ruined by trying to make it âbetter â. Itâs not. I use this app very little since the update; probably will delete if itâs not âdowndated â.
Nice but some adjusting needs Some tweaking 3/5
By Username part
I am looking forward to using the app. However it does need some adjustments and I cannot figure out how to make. The fonts are far too small. At the time where home is the other subjects are not the ones I chose. Ask me what Iâm interested in and then put them in the tub or I can use them makes no sense. I have tried pinching and scratching the screen but that thereâs no perfect. Thank you
You ruined the best news App! 2/5
You had the best news app out there and now you ruined it! It was so easy to review all the headlines stories. If you wanted more depth you offered it on the Wire. It was unique quick and informative format! Now you are no different than my local news app, be a App leader not a follower. Please go back to the old format!
The latest update tho 3/5
âYou donât know what youâve got til itâs gone...â I loved being able to toggle back and forth between what was trending as headline and what was happening as it happened. The latest version beats Google news in trustworthiness but otherwise itâs a pain to navigate for news the way I like. Not updating my tablet version for that reason.
Well-made app, but the content is lacking 2/5
For whatever reason, what was previously a fairly balanced, quality news source has increasingly had difficulty maintaining a neutral tone. Nakedly partisan content may be an effective strategy for new media outlets, but one would expect a venerable, respected source to present facts and analysis in an even-handed manner. Sadly, the ways in which stories are framed and the tone in which they are presented indicate an execrable shift away from privileging facts over political concerns.
Donât upgrade if you like this app 1/5
By Techno hippy 1970
Unfortunately the new version of this app is a tragedy. Previously the settings allowed you to tailor your experience by indicating what kinds of news you want to read, presented in a normal linear fashion.
Now, not only doesnât the selection system work correctly (if I turn off everything but world news, 2/3 of the news feeds from US news) but you cannot unsubscribe to the market reports that they automatically subscribe you to â as far as I can tell. None of this ever happened with the old app. Additionally theyâve gone over to some weird interface that scrolls horizontally at the top but only includes Reuterâs suggestions. You have to scroll down to get to news that isnât days old.
Sadly, this was a 5-Star app before.
Now, Iâm giving this one star before I delete the app. Just sad. I used to read Reuters 4x/day before this new app was released.
This version still not as good as last 2/5
This new version is too heavy into photos. They finally made it easier to change this configuration.
Major flaw in this version is if you want to add more âfeedsâ. I only want curated feeds. There appears to be no directory to add them after initial setup.
OLD VERSION WAS BETTER!! 2/5
I have been a fan for over 3 years and read Reuters nightly. Sad to say that the new version is a big disappointment! Not as compact and much more difficult to navigate than the prior version.
Canât adjust font size? 4/5
As usual, Reuters does a great job with its reporting. However, the app doesnât seem to have a way to adjust font size, and articles have ridiculous side margins. This combination makes reading on an iPad mini somewhat frustrating.
