DowellAJ's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 9/4/18 3:57 AM
My iPad is updated and the app crashes all the time! I can't get through an article most days. This never happened with the old app. And I can't see how to customize certain topics like Sports - I liked being able to focus on college football or MLB, I couldn't care less about NASCAR and tennis. Hope that comes back or I figure it out. Thanks for having black screen mode like the last app.

While the content is fine, excessive moving and shifting of content to FORCE advertising under your fingers. Random adds above or below are one thing, shifting adds over the content, moving text up and down to force adds to be triggered is obnoxious. You’ll get your click fees—-but not based on my fingers!!? Crapp!

This app constantly crashes or freezes. I read the news primarily from my iPad and this has become a very frustrating problem. I loved the old app but was forced to switch over and it's been a mess ever since. I don't like the new format. When I touch to read a story it often is unresponsive forcing me to keep touching it. Then when I finally get the story the page is frozen or crashes. This is the worst app!

Nullstadt's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 8/30/18 7:50 PM
App is better than it was (why it took a year to create dark mode is beyond me), but AP needs to stop sending notifications on non-critical/non-breaking stories. If I get a notification alert, it should be for something important, and a breaking story that *just* happened...not “hey, here’s a think piece about the Honduran migrant crisis”. It’s like the boy who cried wolf, in a way, and it’s an abuse of the privilege...please stop doing it.

EasyInterface's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 8/30/18 5:33 PM
Very poor new “improved” format that replaced the “block” style former format. The question must be “why”? Block style was easy to navigate, visually easy to read and quickly let the reader scan for items of interest. New style looks like it was designed by engineers not marketing specialists who study the interface of the organized screen with the human eye. Move forward by trashing the new format and reinstating the tried and true format. As for me I have switched to Google!!

NicJS582's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 8/29/18 2:40 PM
This app is so clunky and slow that, despite using it and loving its unbiased content for the past couple years, I’m saying goodbye. It often freezes when trying to scroll through stories feed or when transitioning from the story feed to a story and back. Also, the top news story feed hardly changes throughout the day so I’m often behind on the stories everyone is talking about. These are all fairly permanent problems that have never been resolved with updates. A recent problem has occurred when I try to view photos and it takes me straight to the video instead and starts auto-playing! Features, rather than problems, that are not very user friendly include swiping left/right to read a new story which inevitably happens when you don’t want it to (and then freezes) and the force return to the story after swiping through the last of a series of pictures. Amazing that the app of a major news organization could be so bad in 2018.

Logan.D.Leatherman25's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 8/24/18 5:54 PM
Back when I was on social media, I came across a graph rating most of the known media outlets in terms of quality of publications and respective bias to the left or right, what with “fake news” having become a household phrase. In the center-most column (indicating neutral bias) at the top of the quality chart was AP. I looked into what that was and it turns out it was the Associated Press. So I downloaded this app, and sure enough the articles are high quality journalism, and due to the myriad sources from which the Associated Press acquires information for their articles, there is rarely if ever any interjected bias like there is in many other media outlets. I really like that they do a weekly fact-check of the actual “fake news” to keep readers well-informed of what news is real. The only other news sources that I would say come close to AP are Reuters, The Economist, and possibly USA Today. I don’t get my news from anywhere else now.

I hate this new app. With the old app I could choose just the topics I was interested in reading and they were ALL VISIBLE from the home page. Now I have to flip from one screen to another to get to the various topics. There is no more ‘motor racing’ topic and I do not wish to scroll thru hundreds of ‘sports’ articles to find what I am interested in. The old app gave a small ‘snapshot’ of the article, so I could decide if I wanted to open it to read more. There are way to many articles to scroll through to get to the articles that interest me. I want to be able to ‘customize’ my news feed so I can quickly see what I want to read. ‘If it ain’t broke...don’t fix it’. I will be deleting this app and going to Reuters which allows me to customize my news feed. This AP app is not user friendly unless you are a ‘computer geek’. The Reuters app is very easy to navigate. Bye bye!!!

GGB1982's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 8/22/18 12:08 PM
Downloaded the AP app after deleting CNN given their reliably biased coverage and thinly veiled political motivations. I thought AP would be better, and it was for a period of time. Unfortunately, I have seen the AP articles drift closer and closer toward the same behavior. This morning, the breaking news went too far, so I’m done with it. Our press has a responsibility to inform us - not influence our opinions - unless they stop calling themselves part of the protected press. I fear the media doesn’t understand the damage they are doing to our country. I hope we the people see what’s going on.
Junky Downsider's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 8/21/18 9:46 PM
The old version had a better layout. I do not like the way it requires going to the menu to select a different news section. The other used tiles that were very easy to select. This takes more scrolling, careful verification of the section, and precise finger position. At least they added night mode to this one after enough complaints but the ads are huge and interlaced with news. Moreover, the ads are bright from the ad exchanges, so contrast with night mode. This was a problem with the old one too but at least they were smaller. I really do not understand why AP went this way and expect that now my data is being traded off despite blocking my location and ad ID.

Recently, notifications from this app have gone from breaking news bulletins to a large number of promos for AP opinion pieces. Those are overwhelmingly on one side of the political ideology spectrum. AP is entitled to have their opinion and publish it, but to push out promos for those pieces as “breaking news” notifications weakens the value of the app. I don’t want to turn off notifications for this app, but if this continues, I’ll have to. Then I will wonder if it’s even worth keeping the app.

kjtvtraveler's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 8/14/18 3:35 PM
Whenever people ask me what my favorite app is I always answer that it is the AP app. It is a productive way to pass the time. When I am waiting to board a plane, on the line at the post office, or lying in bed, I can catch up on all the top news. The new app is different and I don’t love all the changes since I was so comfortable with the former version. I can, however, accept change. The only thing that really bothers me is that in the former app, you could choose a dark background with lighter text. This seemed easier on my eyes, especially at night. The white background is harsher and I don’t think I will be using this app for my news as much anymore. The only other thing that I would like to mention is that in an older version of the soon to be discontinued AP, the Sports topic could be sorted by individual sport. For example, you could choose Basketball and see only stories about that sport. It would be nice to be able to sort them again. Overall, I am a big fan but would love to see the return of the dark background.
AK-CC's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 8/14/18 3:20 PM
Like many of the apps today, they find it necessary to keep “updating” their look; which really comes down to finding more space for advertising. Unfortunately this new “look” is really poor. The reason I had used AP over other reputable news source apps was because it used to be very organized and compact. Now it is not...enough said.

It works fine, and the font customization really helps with readability. I like AP’s history as a news organization, but have been disappointed since they don’t hire many conservative reporters. Day by day their liberal bias increases.
Urban Mom's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 8/11/18 2:11 PM
I deleted the app as soon as I read several stories. Incredibly biased, left-leaning and often sensationalist. This isn’t journalism. What happened to truth and objectivity, AP?

This app is not nearly as good as the AP app they replaced! Packed with ads! They are between every story, large, moving and just in your face. But mostly you can no longer easily choose “U.S. News”, or “Top Stories”, or “Entertainment News” or “Sports”. Your stuck scrolling down Top Stories. What the heck, time to find a different news source.

CKDOC2012's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/26/18 7:25 AM
I was not looking for changes in the layout of the AP app that I was using. This new version does not have ‘at a glance’ convenience of all the multiple major headings when the page opens and does not appear to be customizable in that regard. I do not like this change at all. The former version has now been diminished to worthlessness.

(Using an iPhone) It doesn’t make sense that when I click on a single story from my drop-down notifications menu that ALL my AP notifications disappear along with it. I forget which stories I was notified about, which means I forget what I want to read, which means that you guys don’t get clicks and revenue. Make it so that when you click on a story, the rest of your notifications do not go away. Like how virtually every other app is

SgtGallifrey's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/25/18 1:58 AM
I love AP because it’s the least biased news source around. I personally love the app’s new look and think the team did an fantastic job with the redesign. However, I have noticed a problem that was nonexistent with the previous app, and that is the slowness of the app. It doesn’t take long for the app and news stories to load, but it takes a good two seconds for the app to respond to my touch, whether that be selecting an article or simply swiping up or down. I believe it’s because of all the ads on the app. I don’t mind the ads, but if they negatively affect the user’s experience, then something needs to be done.

I finally decided to download this new App instead of the original AP app because of all the alerts that the original will soon end, and I find this app to be extremely frustrating. The quality of the news articles remains high which is the only reason I am not giving this App one star. The lack of distinct categories makes looking at types of articles much more annoying and it generally has a much more busy, disorganized feel. I am very disappointed and I hope it will get better but I’m not holding my breath. Update: they finally shut down the original AP app and the new one has yet to improve. It loads much slower than the earlier one and the organization remains far below the earlier one as well. I hope to be able to update this again with more positive news, but as before I’m not holding my breath.

Hotbrains315's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/20/18 12:21 AM
Ironically, the old AP Mobile app is still better than every new version of this app, the only reason I’m using new app is due to old app being shut down. The news is no longer presented as easy to choose categories like the old version, instead, the user is forced to scroll through a long useless list of unorganized articles. *(the categories list is a button on bottom of screen, the old version actually presented the news in categories, you know, like a newspaper or a well organized website). I prefer to be the person in control of what I choose to read, not what an algorithm chooses. (I think they do this to increase the number of ads I’m forced to view with this app) The AP is still my #1 source for news I trust and their new app still delivers that news, albeit in a very clumsy and unorganized way, rather than the much more polished presentation of the older AP Mobile. Great news! Crappy app!!

I have avoided making the transition over from the original app for some time now but it looks like I can’t stall anymore. I’m glad the option for dark mode is finally available. My frustration is now with the font. The change in font is atrocious. Can we be provided an option to use the font from the old app?
ASRPB's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/19/18 4:14 PM
Would give it a minus if I could. Referred to the AP news app daily for years without issue, but this new app is useless. Can’t be used for freezing. If you get the app to finally open (after repeated shut downs) will freeze/not allow screen scrolling. I don’t usually give app reviews but this is so beyond bad couldn’t help but do so.
MusicWorksGuy's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/19/18 3:57 AM
I do not like this format at all. I liked having a sports section, top news, entertainment, US news, and world news. I can not find anything now!!! Guess I’ll get sports from ESPN & easier view of news on BBC or CNN.
ToonMusic's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/19/18 2:47 PM
The older app "AP Mobile" provided a much better news feed experience than this crappy replacement. I wouldn't be inclined to review this app if we weren't being forced to stop using the old one in favor of this. But instead I will be opting for a different news source entirely. The old AP Mobile app was easier to read, had a more eye friendly layout, and the user interface was better... this app is just lame in comparison. Thanks for ruining a good thing.
Manitoba Jim's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/19/18 2:42 PM
Downloaded the new app on my iPad air2 and it will not open, it's frozen. Same thing on my iPhone 6. I have deleted the app and did a cold restart and downloaded it again and the same thing happens. It won't go beyond the breaking news notification. But my husband's mini iPad and his iPhone 6 works. He has IOS 10.3.3 and I have 10.3.2 Can you help me. I really like reading the AP news daily.

madtad1's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/19/18 10:25 AM
The prior app was light years better than this one. More flexible, everything on one page and better filters. This app has non e of those features. A classic case of taking something that was not broken and replacing it with something vastly inferior. Guess what? I’ve deleted this app from all my devices I hate it that much. I’ll stick with BBC News app and find something else to replace this piece of ill-considered crap.

lochnessy88's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/18/18 5:25 PM
Some of the only reporting that is still actually balanced and fact-based. Sometimes you can detect slight bias, but they really do try to keep it focused on what actually happened and not their opinion of the news.

scotts47's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/18/18 3:13 AM
I just deleted both AP apps because a video ad kept popping up while I was trying to read articles. This has been happening for about a week. It occurs when I have not clicked on the ad and forces me to watch a video several times while reading a single article. I have been using the AP apps to get my news for several years, but I will not do so going forward. Not worth the hassle.
Que Bummed's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/18/18 2:58 PM
This app has been problematic for me. It took several updates for the app to work on my iPhone after an iOS update. This most recent iOS update had rendered the app useless in my iPad. I have yet to try my phone. Whoever maintains this app needs to do something with the prerelease of each version of the operating system. Testing is always a good idea.

Scott-49's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/18/18 11:52 PM
This new version is a step back in ease of use and functionality. You can no longer simply select the news topics you like and reorder them by dragging them in the list. In World News there isn't a way I could find to pick regions of interest (Europe, Africa, etc.). To "unfollow" a topic you have to go to the topic list in Settings, open the topic, and click on the "unfollow" button. I'm dropping AP News from my iPhone and iPad as it has been "improved" to a worse, less user friendly version. UPDATE: 7/18/18 I’ve just deleted AP News from my iPad (it’s long gone from my iPhone), for the reasons stated above. Not worth the effort to use.

This used to be a good app. Now is freezes up all the time. Not to mention the coverage is getting more biased, far more left-leaning than a journalism site should be. You are supposed to report the news, not show only the negative side of one party. Edward R. Murrow would not be happy.

DAC1234567890's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/16/18 4:57 PM
Update to my prior review regarding Version 2.0 (see below). If anything, this latest release is even worse. It often does not respond at all. I have to close the app, open another app, close that app and go back to AP News and hope it does something. Now you can’t even bypass the app and use a browser to read the news. Every page is now interrupted by a window that pops up to want to open the story in the app. It’s like rubbing salt in the wound - if the app worked, I would not have to use a browser!!! I have regretted deleting the original APNews app ever since I switched to the “new and improved” version. It is less elegant than the original, has more ads, and is less efficient to navigate. However version 2.0 is better than the latest release. If you have not updated to 2.1 yet, do NOT do so. It is less stable and often unresponsive than version 2.0. It’s easier to just read the APNews on their web site

987ks610's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 7/16/18 11:34 PM
Spoiler alert: positive preaching ahead. If the US Constitution is our finest national living document, the AP represents the finest of our living history as provided by the free press. It's a dangerous digital tickertape to walk, making facts your cause in a time when written, oral, and pictorial sources are manipulated within a digital bit of their integrity. AP gets it right - or left - or most often, in between where we must all live with one another. AP presents the news for all, plainly spoken, straightforward, with depth. The style of the app, the tap-n-read mode that our age embraces, would be improved only by what all sites need, ever sharper editing to be certain the accuracy, the very words of the online document correctly reflect its substance. I am encouraged that we might expect at least this one institution to outlive us all by the nature of its legacy: literacy. Why not believe that our species will long retain the ability to build our own brain activity, enhance collective dialogue and embrace challenges we must all face? Got hope? AP does, and no sugarcoating.

Not an improvement over old. Like physician’s oath, whomever did this forgot, “First, do no harm.” Font size of articles terrible-grey, hard to read. One can’t scroll all the way through the “top news” stories. Perhaps the AP should have hired any one of the firms who designed the ads on the new site-one has no problem seeing and reading them just fine. Please let us see AP’s news in a more viewer friendly way. Isn’t that what you should want as well?

Okay, every app deserves a second chance. Deleted and reinstalled. Seems to work fine now, even with 11.4.1 running on my iPad Mini 4. Thanks also for the font size adjustments in settings.

mikesssss's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 3/3/18 4:58 AM
The new update still has the problem that it immediately crashes on every launch, on two different devices, with two different device types (iPhone/iPad), on two completely different releases of iOS (iOS 11, iOS 10). It appears this is self-inflicted: the app is calling abort(). You can't politely let AP know about the problem, because the Report a Problem and App Support links just go to the AP home page, which doesn't have a place to Report a Problem or get App Support.
Guephiltefich's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 3/3/18 4:38 PM
The following 2 settings are missing in this "new" AP News: 1 - Black background option and 2 - Zero images option. Fewer images is not a replacement for ZERO images. Please, note that the above 2 settings were always present in the "old" AP app, which was an excellent news app. I still have it and I continue to use it. The "old" AP news app is my preferred 5 star app because of the above mentioned settings. I hope you do listen because this is not a new request. In fact, it is as old as the "new" AP app!

CassiusM5516's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 3/3/18 1:01 PM
Pro- I can access news wires in states I have connections to. Con- Story content on wires is limited and sometimes connected to websites that require me to visit a news organization’s website within the app (for example The Boston Herald)and sometimes you can’t access this content at all without a paid subscription Pro- Top stories section has a variety of content that I want to read first, and a good range of topics Con- sometimes the most recent stories do not filter to the top so old content from yesterday might be ahead of something from today Pro- Breaking news alerts are quicker than anyone else Con- No stories or even just a brief description of the news alert is ever provided. You get a “story is too new” type message and it tells you to check back later-later could be over an hour where as other news organization apps will have already posted a story I love this app and it is my trusted news source. I am however getting frustrated with it freezing, crashing and still being frozen when I exit and renter it after several attempts. A lot of the stories you’ll be reading, you scroll down and it just completely freezes. Please fix this or I am going to delete you again. Your old app was much better in terms of content, navigation and stability (2 yrs ago).

This is my go-to for news these days — comprehensive reporting with a serious effort to achieve some modicum of objectivity. That’s what the AP stands for, and not many other organizations even try for it. The proofreading is sometimes shabbier than I expect from them, but the 24 hour news cycle and budget pressures have taken a toll on everyone on that score.

GGGTripleG's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 2/16/18 4:23 PM
I fully understand that I am receiving free news in exchange for ads. I accept that every time I open the AP app. But AP’s new tactic of forcing open a video right in the middle of reading a critical news story about a school shooting or any other very sensitive news has gone way too far. The same video (in this case a Puppy for Purina dog food) over and over and over again, opening every 20-30 seconds??? Great way to turn someone against your advertisers, also drove me to immediately delete the app. Cmon AP, you’re so much better than that.
Kathy and Gale's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 2/15/18 7:55 PM
The AP is the only news source that approaches reality, in my opinion at present. The actual video of President Trump talking about the school shooting shows his caring and sensitivity to the people involved. Also, and I don’t know where else you would even find this, he quotes from the Scriptures and says that God’s Word says, “I have heard your prayers. I have seen your tears. I will heal you.“ No wonder that so much distortion accompanies media reports. However, God’s Word wins.

T Imrich's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 11/4/18 7:01 PM
The new AP App is awful for at least 2 major reasons 1. Unlike the old app it doesn’t provide a long list of relevant topics in short title/picture form on ONE screen, to easily select what topic one wants to read or view. 2. AP has increasingly tended toward left wing socialist bias almost as blatant as MSNBC, NPR, and CNN. It now permeates APs headline bias, story bias, and selection of stories, as well as placement of those stories in lists. I am nearing the decision to no longer even view AP, as any valid news source.

Evidently, having a good product did not suit the people in charge, so they threw away what they had and gave us a disaster. It’s new standard font is tiny and uncomfortable. It’s design might look good at first glance, but if you actually want to read the news, it’s genuinely irritating. I was pleased to see that it gives users a font adjustment feature that looks very accommodating. But when I tried to actually use it, it did not work . . . at all. They had better fix this fast, because I am now definitely looking for a better news source.

Best online feed of current news. Quick reads available of top stories that you can click on and read the details. Objective and thorough reporting you can trust.

It’s hard to believe that AP news is so biased. It’s disgusting and dangerous. What happened to just reporting the news in a fair and objective way.

This app drains the battery astonishingly fast. My phone gets so hot in a matter of two or three minutes that I can hardly hold it. For example, I just read one story and in the period of two or three minutes my battery level dropped from 61% to 29%. What a disaster.

disenchanted100's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 11/1/18 4:14 PM
I try and find a media site that will give facts and not spin opinions. I hoped this new site would express journalistic talent and deliver facts, but I was disappointed to see more influence peddlers spewing left leaning and distorted talking points I see at CNN and MSNBC. Readers want to make their own minds up and form their own ideas, not commentators disguised as journalists trying to influence the public. Sorry but deleting your app.
Den3nis's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 11/1/18 2:44 PM
Really don’t like the new app. With the old app I could scan 7 or 8 headlines at one time and didn’t have to contend with ads in the middle of the page. You tried to copy Google and you already had a far superior app. Really sad

Your news slants far too liberal. You don’t cover stories that don’t support liberal views. Clearly a substantial bias by most of your supporters.

DukeAlumnus's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 10/7/18 12:10 PM
Far too frequently, AP reports are predictably prejudiced conforming to “leftist progressive social justice” dogma and ideology. This significantly undermines AP’s credibility, moreover if fails to meet basic and crucial journalistic standards. Report only facts — including those favored by others with differing political, social, and economic viewpoints — and refrain from “editorialized news.”
MickAv8r's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 10/7/18 11:58 PM
The current app is horrible on the iPhone Xs. Swiping up doesn’t work because the app is forcing a side swipe to quit the app which is non-standard functionality and the app doesn’t take into account the notch in the screen and content is actually displayed behind it. C’mon guys the notch is over a year old. It’s no longer acceptable to not have addressed this.
ORChrised's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 10/6/18 7:25 PM
Ive been a fan on the Associated Press for well over 25 years, but the app has pushed me to find other sources. Invasive ads that take over the screen, redirect to pages, and god forbid you scroll down when an ad is trying to over take your screen. Why an 100+ year old organization of hundreds of news desks around the world needs to advertise like its a go fund me ran by a cocaine addict is beyond me. But it makes a crappy experience
Mike 3693's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 10/6/18 2:12 AM
I use to trust ap news to be unbiased. Unfortunately it is not the case anymore. Recently, I have been able to go to the ap to see what the liberal point of view is. I'm disappointed that I'm not usually disappointed. I get the left point of view with the occasional right "honorable mention" when I read the ap.

You don’t need to actively monitor my location in order to provide local news coverage. A simple zip code will suffice. Really good of you folks to shutdown your older app (which didn’t track me) in favor of this “upgraded” version.
Pennut butter's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 10/30/18 9:30 PM
How about objectivity in reporting political events/stories? Skewed accounts call into question everything being told. Fairness in reporting is not only proper, but there is a huge market for it because the public doesn’t trust the mainstream media (such as AP) and fair reporting is how trust can be garnered. Thank you.

If I don’t want to read the news through the lens NYTimes or the Washington Post, I go straight to AP. Don’t get me wrong, the Times And Post are outstanding publications and I rely on them, but AP is where I go first. It feels as though that’s what other news organizations do, too.
Redbird51's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 10/28/18 9:25 PM
I love AP ap. It’s easy to use, but more importantly it’s well balanced. Wether you need WSJ or Ny Times, this should be part of your daily read. It’s basically just the news, no partisan slant from what I can see. For me I read all three - it’s a great way to get to the facts.
PhilaJoe's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 10/28/18 3:35 PM
The AP app has excellent, virtually comprehensive, accurate local, national and international news. The app (and my usage of it) is greatly diminished by the AP allowing incredibly distracting animated advertisements to appear in the banner ad at the bottom of every article. While I understand and support the AP’s need to monetize the app I hope they will consider other less distracting types of ads such as ‘sponsored’ content (clearly labeled) that would likely bring in more $$ and be more effective for advertisers too.

This is the first visit I make every morning to check the news. It is an excellent straightforward source of news. I also like the in depth stories that they do as well as the photography. Update: August 31, 2017 The app is quitting on me this morning. This happened 3 times so far within about 10 minutes. I am unable to read some of the articles I wanted to read. This needs to be fixed. This is happening on my iPad. Update: Oct. 2, 2018. The app quits on me when I am reading articles. I am persistent so open the app up to continue reading. I have had to reopen the app 6 times or more to read an article. It is frustrating and annoying. This is on my 4th generation iPad. Other apps on my iPad do not do this.

I know no news source is unbiased, I’m not asking for that. I’ve used this app for a few years and never had an issue. Then today, there was a “paid for” ad, designed to look like a news headline, that was actual Chinese propaganda (something about a certain province’s huge economic success). Bias is one thing. This is next level.

Sometimes swiping to the next story loads only the main picture. I have to return to the main news page and reselect the story to load it. Less frequently but still too often, the app just crashes and dumps back to the iPhone’s home screen. This also occurs on an iPad Pro. Otherwise I like the app. I would also like a no-ad option for a dollar or two. If I didn’t know better, I would say the crashing is happening when the next ad is loading in. Can’t prove that though.

West Side John's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 10/12/18 1:06 PM
The best source for real news in the English language. Why? The AP is a non-profit cooperative (so not beholden to advertisers or underwriters) with sources in EVERY news market. The AP is also not government-funded, therefore completely free from the agendas, whims and propaganda associated with the state.
It's Eddie's Review of Ap NewsReviewed on 10/11/18 7:53 PM
The older AP app displayed more content above the scroll line and was easier to customize. Now you may see three or four headlines before scrolling is required to see more stories. The old version would display six or seven headlines. This is, from a 'user' or consumer perspective, a step in the wrong direction. AP should make it easier and quicker to view news rather than require MORE effort. Very disappointed. UPDATE for October 2018: The above review continues to be relevant with this addition - all the advertisements accomplish two things in my old iPhone 6: 1) drains the battery super-crazy-fast and 2) heats-up the back of the iPhone, sometimes up to 104 degrees (fahrenheit). It's kinda frightening how hot it gets! Seems clear this is caused by the advertisements as they have so much animation and garbage that taxes the CPU. PLEASE fix this!
