What in heaven's name is going on with USA Today? The new personalized version stinks. It was good when Gannett owned it. Guess I will have to go to a different news source. ☹️
Hard to read 1/5
No way to increase text size.
Too much content on the front page 2/5
People don’t want an endless scroll of new news
USA Today 1/5
By Don't buy 10000
The new changes are not good. When you select an article you get redirected to a different version of USA Today, that spend s most of its time trying to load video that doesn’t work, and displaying other content you did not want to see.
I did not mind the adds in the old style, but the new version is just too hard to read.
Go back guys
Bad update - again 3/5
The latest version of USAToday shrunk the font size in articles and doesn’t allow for users to adjust it. App still has limited news stories and doesn’t prioritize stories of most interest to me.
Merger killed the app 2/5
I have used USAToday as my news source for years, but the recent updates to the app have made it almost impossible to read about the events of the world. Ads are now immersed in the text so you have no idea you are no longer reading the story. Scrolling is a joke as you have to touch the ads to scroll (since they take up the whole screen) causing inadvertent clicks. Looks like i have to find a new app that i can actually read the news with.
Last update made it horrible 1/5
I’ve been using this app for years. The last update has been the worst thing they could’ve done to the app. It drastically changed usability. I obviously don’t know who within their design department thought this was user friendly but that person needs to be fired.
Bad bad bad 1/5
By Lost 4 words
I can no longer read anything on this app, since I do not have 10. Version
What happen to the previous version that I could read articles?
Newest version a fail 1/5
I've used this app for several years. The newest version is unusable on my iPad. You have about 3 seconds to read before the text blanks out. Very frustrating. Looks like I will need to find another source for my news.
Where did science go! 1/5
Sorry not into sports or travel or money. I want to know about what’s happening with our planet and the advancement of science. I guess there is nothing for me in this news outlet.
Forced ads on videos 1/5
By Grayling Hunter
I don’t mind the short ads because there is no free lunch but come on USA!! Forcing a 2.5 minute ad that says you can skip beat it won’t is greedy on your part. This is happening more and more that is why I am dumping your service. That and your overcoverage of all things sports.
Great app! 5/5
Useful and simple layout
Too many ads and annoying pop ups 1/5
I get U.S.A. Today wants me to subscribe to their no-ad format so they they’ve chosen to be really obnoxious w the free version with way too many ads and hurdles just to read and watch what I’m interested in. Guess I’ll have to seek my news elsewhere.
Update is beyond awful! 1/5
Edit 12/2019: New version is virtually useless on iPad. Ad placement is intrusive and doesn't load smoothly. RIP USA Today, won't be using you anymore!
And now they have screwed up the crossword puzzle operation once again. Yuck!
Why USA Today would abandon the internet's absolute best news interface for this slick piece of worthless glitz is beyond me. Looks like adult supervision on the design team has been abandoned. PLEASE bring back the previous version, or at least offer it as an option. Note to advertisers: will no longer be using this as my go-to news app. Just dreadful
And now with today's iPad "update" on 7-16-2016, you get no content ... Un-freakin' believable!
Work on your APP 1/5
Your scores on the games could use a lot! !!!!! !!! Of work! Completely failed during part of the most important part of the season!
Too difficult to see/read 1/5
Can’t enlarge the font so It now too hard to read!
Why can't I see NCAAF scores on the app 1/5
I used ti love this app and was the beat at giving me college football scores but I have not been able to see those in a while. I deleted the app and re-installed it and still nothing. What's going on?
Inconsistant app 2/5
Thinking it was my phone, I’ve rebooted to no avail. NCAAF should work every time, and it’s not even working as we speak!!
Why can’t I get NCAAF scores?
UsedTo be great 3/5
Now just external packed with add pages
New Update? 2/5
New version almost unreadable on my iPad. I’ve been a regular reader for years, but now can’t read an entire article without things jumping around and me hitting a random link I don’t want. Video pop up box has a “close x” in the corner that does not work, then video continues to run over top of the text. It’s a mess. Sorry, I’m not paying $5 a month for this.
Night mode?? 3/5
By Gene Mauch
Recent update does not display night mode with a black background. Disappointed as shows stories with bright white background
Disappointed in Distractions 2/5
By Travels to Europe
I’ve had this app for a few years and read it daily but lately the ‘distractions’ are terrible. The ads that play, the story banner pop ups, the amount of ads .
If it continues I’ll have to delete this app.
Offline reading 1/5
I have used this app for years often updating just before taking off for a boring flight. I really enjoyed the offline reading while in airplane mode. Now, most of the articles are linked to the web which of course is not accessible rendering the app essentially useless to me for my favorite time to use it. Why the change?
By LR 4606
Having all kinds of problems with site staying on.. I cannot update to new app ..this began when they changed the format of front page. Makes me a little angry..
New Format 1/5
By Longshot Lou
This new format change is terrible. Why did you ruin a good thing! First off, I use an older iPad and this change recently made makes it impossible for me to read the articles. Keep getting bounced out. Wasn't this change pretested? Your IT gurus really screwed up. You may have just forced me to switch over to Fox News completely if this issue isn't resolved.
Cartoons do not load correctly on iPadOS 13.2.3 1/5
By Mick Gator Fan
In addition to poor presentation of stories, they have succeeded in breaking the political cartoon section. Half of them won't load at all, and now the cartoons share the page with ads, and you have to scroll down to see the cartoons - seems to be impossible to see the cartoons as a full screen.
I opened what I thought was a text story but it was a video so I closed it. No point in opening anything any more.
The self-launching video ads are an intrusive "feature".
If they wanted to ruin the app completely, they have succeeded.
Thank you and goodbye 1/5
By Field rat
Have enjoyed your news apps for years. Usually 3-5 times a day I would log on. This last update though has gone too far with ads. For 20 lies of news I have to wade through 100 ads, no thanks. Good luck with your ads paper, formally known as a news paper. Good bye!
App now functions as a link to webpage 2/5
Disappointed that this browsing experience has gone to slow load times. I loved the offline features for my underground commute. Yes, long reads were linked to the local papers or enriched content pages, but that was worth the quality read. Now even small daily articles take me out of the app experience to an overly cluttered interface.
Used to be better 2/5
The application used to be easy to read but now it’s cumbersome because scrolling down to read an article inevitably results in inadvertently clicking on unwanted links to other (sometimes older) related news or ads. Annoying!
Best summary of real-time news! 5/5
You guys have completely messed up a clean app 1/5
I used to love this app. But then you messed everything up with your latest release. When I click on a particular story I don’t want to see a page full of other stories I don’t want to see. As the app is now I have to find the story I clicked on amidst all of the other trash you try to push on me. As soon as my current subscription expires I will not be renewing.
Has the app been hacked by some (far) right-winger?
Latest update “improvement” 1/5
By Salty Sue 324
I've tried to read several USAToday articles only to become frustrated. I select an article to read; as I’m reading it constantly goes to the top. I scroll to where I was to start reading again then poof, I’m at the top again or back on the main page. I finally stopped trying to read altogether. Frustrating!
Also, it no longer shows when an “article” is a video. You don’t know the story is a video until you select it. I prefer to read my news, not watch videos. Frustrating!
Please fix this newly released version so it can be read without interruptions. Thank you for your time.
Latest Update 1/5
The latest update of the app is not appreciated. I might as well just go to the web site as it is working like that now. You broke something and should fix. Articles load horribly on the iPad and is very slow now.
Now, it is awful 1/5
Recent update has made it unreadable. So many ads fly out and the format is a mess. Have been a loyal reader for years, but this last mess, especially on Top Stories, makes it exhausting. Bye,bye USA Today! Too many other choices!
Night mode???? 1/5
What happened to night mode? Now every article goes to a white screen page. So sad!
Bad update 1/5
USA Today was my go to news app for years. I’m now looking for another. Too many ads that crowd the page making an article hard to read.
Now it’s Awful! 1/5
By who tested this?
The update yesterday changed my interface to something horrible and now I’m getting tons of advertisements. I am paying for ad free and I can’t figure out how to restore my account.
I used to love this app but.... 3/5
Something has recently changed. I don’t like the way the articles in the top stories section all bring you to a new page that has pop ups and the page jumps around. It was so much better the way articles used to open. I’m disappointed in the changes. I would have given this a five star review a few weeks ago.
Nearly unreadable. 1/5
This app used to be excellent. Now the content is nearly unreadable.
Worst layout ever 2/5
By odds user
Just a big Amazon ad. Slow video.... 1/5
Reporting isn’t that good. Most articles read like tabloid material. USA Today significant news is what cooking pot to buy at Amazon. Now ALL articles force download of video ads that slow and prevent you from reading the news. Download AP for much higher quality news.
Ad popping 1/5
So many apps popping up it is no longer readable
Change in format 1/5
By Brad's Review
They've changed the format, sending me to a different version, which starts to load, then gives me a blank screen to stare at. Whose dumb idea was this? Send them to Fox.
Night mode useless 2/5
Night mode used to show news articles on dark background but now you get a bright white background as if you were reading the paper online.
This used to be a great app when it mirrored the phone app. Now the main page still looks like the phone app but there is a huge difference. When you click on a story, it takes you to the web page that is filled with ads and not formatted well for an iPad. This went from my favorite app to my least favorite app overnight.
Love this app! 5/5
By Pastor EC
This app gives you all the news and keeps you up to date. Get it because you will not regret it.
Too much repetition 3/5
I do not like football. I have not clicked on any articles about football. My second half of the news is all about football. I can’t figure out how to change this. It’s annoying
