  • So annoying!

    By EddieOnIos
    Every time I tap away from the app to send a text or anything it loses my place. It's so annoying to have an article disappear when I'm half way through it.
  • It has some imperfections

    By JenniferLewis
    I like reading the news. However, because I looked up a movie once because I had seen it or because I searched for a band I like, it doesn’t mean that I want to see a news story on every tiny move the band makes or every paparazzi report on the actor in the movie. Yes, I’ve tried the “show me less of this” option but then the app picks another topic it thinks I’m intensely interested in. Enough?

  • Fix immediately

    By Durnyank
    Why is Fox News NOT on the list of 50 available news sites on this app? Yet, many Fake News sites (CNN, NYT, etc.) are? Fix this immediately if you want more stars from me.
  • Says “Check Internet Connection” often

    By LittleMustardSeed
    Can’t get news a lot of the time because the app gives and error message claiming I have no internet connection . I close the app, open again, still cannot retrieve news and get error message. I have plenty of available memory on my phone and have iPhone XS. I’ve even tried closing other apps as well, wondering if that was the problem (too many open apps), but that’s not it either. I tried to get app support, but it just directed me to the web, where the new new app is introduced. No way to send private message to address this issue. This is the new news app, and it’s not working for me too much of the time. Since I can’t seem to write to support, I’m posting here. Hope you can fix this glitch. Looking for other apps for news to replace this until it is fixed.
  • Doesn’t allow you to view latest stories first

    By NunyaBiz!
    Google News would be great if you could organize it to where you get the latest stories first. I am trying to keep up on the latest Lakers news and I’m having to sort between stories from 2 days ago and 2 hours ago
  • Out-Standing

    A great stand-in app for a rainy day. We use this app most every day.
  • Open in browser

    By babydubs
    It is ridiculous that you need to navigate though two layers of menus to even find the option to open a page in your browser app. I get it, is it unfair that iOS doesn't let me make Chrome my default browser? Yes. Should Google take it out on users by making it so ridiculously hard to open a page in Safari? No. Stop these petty design wars.
  • Location Doesn’t Work

    By uncletimothy
    Every one of my google apps recognize exactly where I live in Maine. My go to weather app recognizes where I am. Even will change to my location in Maine if I input my zip. This app, Google News, somehow keeps saying I’m somewhere in the middle of Kansas and provides no setting for changing it. Useless. I’ve been used to very reliable, useful, and easily managed apps from Google, so this one comes as surprisingly but completely disappointing.
