    This app is pretty good but there are a couple of things that are annoying. It's too easy to make the screen swipe left or right accidentally while trying to scroll up and down with one hand. The other is when the pop up appears at the bottom to tell you about the next story. It interferes with the story you're already reading. Honestly I gave it 4 stars because it seems like the developer cares about having a good app. But those two things make me not enjoy it as much as I would otherwise.

    Somewhat better than Google News but also annoying in many ways. Hitting the back button often takes you back to the beginning of the news feed. The Tech articles are boring and generic compared to Google News. All in all it does offer a straight forward interface for getting the news without too many obtrusive ads or articles you can't get to without a special subscription like the Apple News feed.

  • The Details Feb 1, 2018

    By Goldengugguga
    I have enjoyed my search for news even more over the last 3 months ... thanks to Newsroom..The coverage they offer is broad , correct and they search for all the details. It’s been a pleasure to have read the story days before it gets to TV. When asked where I got my news or where they can find out what is happening. My response is check the NewsRoom . Cass

    When i get up in the morning and open my phone the news is the first thing I see. I am well informed on the news happening during the night in my town. I like the way that now they can summarize the reports and get up quick view and choose if you want to continue with the story. Yes I do life it the new platform and the news articles that arelm important are right there when you get up. I don't have to go looking around to find out what's going on in the world.

  • Variety and less biased Jan 21, 2020

    Yahoo offers a much broader look at the news with many articles about human interests and not just political views about every aspect of life. Yahoo news is more enlightening and less anger. I like the news Yahoo offers. It is one of approximately 15 news feeds so I am able to see many viewpoints of what is happening in United States , from around the World.

    Very biased. Headlines are very misleading, and they are intended to push a very liberal agenda. They don't stick to reporting just the facts like true journalists. Opinions are not supposed to be included, nor speculations, nor assumptions. Sadly, this app is preloaded on my phone and I cannot uninstall.

  • Swipe Controls Horrible Sep 15, 2018

    By Puck269
    The new swipe controls to exit an article is too close to the motion used to simply scroll through the article while reading. It is so annoying to be reading an article and the app closes because it thinks you are swiping to go back to the main page. It is so frustrating the app is almost unusable at this point. I don't usually rate this app because its just a news aggregate. But this change has enraged me so much because of the habit I have in using this app and is a increased level of stress because of the frustration of simply "reading the paper". It is the equivalent of reading a newspaper in a tornado. Get rid of this feature immediately.

  • Not a good product Aug 24, 2018

    By Puggly 22
    There are countless problems with this app. Here are a few. The app highjacked My Yahoo news feed. I understand that it is a Yahoo product, but there really isn’t any better way to describe an abrupt change in format of a different app without a way to toggle back to the original app. Another problem is that the Privacy statement is in Spanish. The entire legal package including all the weasel language is in English, except for the Privacy statement. Oath seems to be involved with the Privacy statement. However all I can find is a hip hop ad trying to tell me how cool Oath is without telling what Oath does. An additional problem is that there is now way to track your comments.

    Interface has become unreliable and frustrating. Attempting to scroll through an article frequently just has the app acting as if you're trying to swipe left/right to another story, or the app thinks you're trying to tap its annoying pop up at the bottom for some other story. Ads on the stories it loads up to trick you into swiping into them will also play in the background, and even if you swipe over to stop them the ads just reload and restart when you go back. Awful and unfriendly.

  • Too much crap! Aug 3, 2020

    By Maddog666
    Too little hard news, narrow range of news topics, old news - stories stay up for days or are already out of date material, tons of clickbait, single sentence news bites with no substance. People have complained for months about these issues, the app often asks for feedback, but doesn’t really care what you think. Don’t waste your time. Just a trashy app. If you like it, you probably are a knuckle dragging trailer park denizen. Bring back the comments. That’s what makes the app worthwhile. Yahoo! dumber than a box of rocks for removing that function. Used to spend hours on it; now 5 minutes and I’m done, if I bother at all.

  1. Get the top news of the day and follow developing stories in a news feed tailored just to your interests
  2. View news articles from all the major networks: Yahoo, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News, Fox News, the Associated Press, Reuters, Time, HuffPost & more
  3. Smart technology takes note of what you read the most and keeps curating your news feed accordingly

  • Self control Mar 14, 2021

    By gamer-mum
    I’m glad to see the ability to leave comments gone. It’s a real shame however that people do not use self control on platforms like this. I can understand being passionate about a belief or whatever but people just take it too far. I have no real issues with the app but I definitely liked the previous layout much better.

  • Keeps me up to date on news Oct 28, 2018

    By Laura of oz
    I don’t have a lot of time to watch all the news so I really love getting the important things that come across my screen. That way I can tap on it and it takes me to to whole story. Even if it’s not all that important it does keep me in touch with what’s happening in our country and our world around us.

  • Okay, too many video only articles. Dec 16, 2017

    By NYJMM
    The recent changes seem to throw a lot of video at readers in articles. Many times I like to just read article,then maybe watch associated video. Would be nice to be able to pause the video. Video uses a lot of data and even though many have unlimited plans the data is slowed down after a certain amount of data usage.

  • Forum for the misinformed. Feb 8, 2019

    By SOGQ
    I’m so glad to be able to read a story that may or may not be entirely worthwhile and then endure the comments of the legions of lemmings whose ability to read, and think is limited by the amount of FOX CABLE NEWS they watch. The only thing good that comes out of these comments is the knowledge that the USA has so many frightened and gullible people in it.

    Seems like overall top news still outranks personalization to avoid an echo chamber. I don't have an account and use it as a guest though. I do like that a lot of their info comes from AP and the guardian which have been shown to be middle ground, just giving the facts resources.

    By Dennis Greathouse
    Have always enjoyed getting news while on the go. The only reason I give you a 3, and I was thinking maybe a 2, is that you decided to eliminate the comments section with every article. The worst thing that you could do. If you don't want to allow comments, stop printing articles and maybe just print cartoons or such.

    I like the detailed information but the service frequently cuts me off as I read a story and go down a page. Therefore, I have to later go to a computer vs my cell, to get the rest of the story. Otherwise, I would give it 5-stars.

    Can you please get rid of the next in top stories notification that keeps popping up at the bottom. Its pissing me off soo bad having that notification pop up that I'm about to delete this app.

    Truely a one sided news app. I did not look at any of the political news after the first few weeks that this "news app" came across my phone. Now that Trump is out of the White House, let's see how the news will be. Hopefully it will be better. I don't want a news app "telling me" how I am supposed to think. This one did. Truely disappointed in this app.

  • New version is annoying Jun 17, 2020

    By Un-origin
    There was nothing wrong with functionality of the old version. This update has made stories not load. It's also slow, choppy and unreliable. The main page doesn't seem to work very well. Update: the app continually freezes opening and closing articles to the point where I close and reopen it. Frustrating and annoying. I’ve almost stopped using it in favour of just going through safari. The web is more up to date and no issues with responsiveness.

    App was great until this morning. My phone is blowing up with the same "breaking news" notifications over and over again, and most of them are stories I already read earlier this week. I'm going to have to delete the app if these notifications continue.

  • Glitches to different story when clicked Dec 18, 2017

    By Olliesgirl
    The app often opens an entirely unrelated story when when I’m trying to follow a different headline. Then when I go back, I can’t find the story I was originally interested in reading. It also switches articles. Often, when I’m in the middle of reading a long story it will suddenly switch to a different article with no way to get back to the story I was reading. The only option is to spend 5-10 scrolling through the feed hoping to find the headline again. This is especially annoying when I’m 15 minutes or more deep into a long read article.
