Kaliandarau's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 9/5/18 9:50 AM
With the wire section missing there is virtually no use for this app. Delete.
RJ Turing's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 9/3/18 8:19 PM
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 “feed styles” 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.
Adverbly's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 9/3/18 3:06 PM
*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 “the wire” , lost a critical feature from the ap - to know what’s going neutrally - not just favorites. Will add top stories too - but I like the wire which seems not to filter topics. It’s better than the AP news ap.
hamcap's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 9/3/18 2:06 AM
This premier news agency had a 4.3+ rating before the “new app” released. Why change it when it ain’t broke? It’s 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.
klumphr's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 9/2/18 8:32 PM
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. I’m not ready to delete it yet, hoping it changes in the future.

badgolferman's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 9/13/18 12:51 PM
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 doesn’t seem to work. I don’t 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 don’t bother anymore and get my news from other sources.

Squirrely_in_Chicago's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/9/18 6:39 PM
This is a terrible update from developers who have a misguided notion of good visual design. This app now features enormous pictures, and you have to scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll to scan through the articles. The more compact layout of the previous version was much preferable. I'm dumping this app.
Leinad47's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/9/18 5:15 PM
I agree with others who have said this version has too much white space (i.e, not compact enough) and too many large pictures (even in text only mode). This app used to be a pleasure to view, and now it is a chore. I used to open the app 20 times a day; now, I rarely do. And when I do, I close it quickly. Please revert to the prior format.
MC Anonymous's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/9/18 3:34 AM
Old layout had news selected by category. New layout you cannot find the categories that were in old layout. Then when selecting add news feed, it doesn’t show what news categories are available. Basically you have to remember what was in old layout such as Science, Sports, Entertainment, etc when you do a search for news feed. If this doesn’t improve A LOT, I’m considering deleting the app.

wilbanja's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/9/18 2:13 PM
Disappointed that the new version does not have font size control. This is really useful on phones with smaller screens (e.g. iPhone SE) and for those with minor vision issues. (I only rarely need reading glasses.) Font size control is especially useful at night or morning laying in bed catching up on the news. The NY times app is great in this regard and allows a large font size range. Please add this feature as I love the content! Market news is the best!
Manos Athitakis's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/9/18 1:58 PM
For years the Reuters app delivered quality news in an easy to digest format that made you check the app several times a day... the updated design swaps out content for the sake of eye candy. It’s sad because it undermines the great content hidden by a design that fragments info and keeps you from staying on the app.

RHL Centreville VA's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/9/18 11:42 AM
I love Reuters content, but the recent update is markedly inferior to the old app. One used to see a quick synopsis of many stories at a glance and easily pick out stories of interest. Now you have to scroll and scroll. Content is too spread out with too many useless photos. I find myself going to the new app less often than the old.

Mcgap's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/9/18 11:04 AM
I am afraid to update based on so many negative reviews! It sounds like the new app is copy-catting so many other apps and web pages that deliver news content and entertainment by going for more and bigger pictures and less text. I'm with those that like to be able to move through the headlines quickly and selecting those stories that appeal to me for in depth reading. I don't need a bunch of eye candy. If anything, I steer away from those. Have particularly liked the Wire feature as it gives timely news and an easy way to scan. Simplicity is a virtue. If things must change in this "new" way, make it clear that there is an option to revert or change to a more text like view and I will be happy to update. Until then I shall just give an average view for what has been a great news app.
ldkccjd's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/9/18 10:57 PM
I feel that one reason there is so much discord in our country right now is because we can all live in our own little bubbles where we are only exposed to what we want to see and hear. Part of this problem is personalization of the news, so each person only sees what they *think* will be important or interesting. I was really pleased with the Reuters app when I first started using it in part because it wasn’t personalized, just the main stories of the day. So of course I was very irritated when I opened Reuters today and found that it had updated to a version in which I had no option but to personalize my feed. We’ll see how this goes but I may have to find another news app.

Right2Safety's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/7/18 9:49 PM
Unless I'm missing a way to view what was "the wire" the new version suffers from its absence. The quality of reporting is still superior but I sorely miss having access to very recent events. The old version was ideal. While the new version is quite attractive, I miss being able to see the new and developing reports.
Lara Rebooted's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/7/18 9:21 AM
I wish I had read the latest reviews before updating, because I would have skipped the update if I had had any idea what I would get. The new "feed" looks like a Facebook feed, minus any of the customizations and interactive elements that redeem Facebook's fugliness. Believe it or not, I use Reuters because it's not Facebook, and I thought it had no aspirations of becoming Facebook. I hope this update will get canned, and the old, better, more compact layout will return--or, at least, that we will be given the option to use it instead--because I really don't see myself using the app much if it stays like this.

This used to be the best business news app. No more. The content is as excellent as ever, but the user interface is convoluted with too many pictures.

iohcnivek's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/6/18 9:50 AM
This new redesign is great. The app has much more utility now and is becoming the only news app I use. The only gripe I have are ads and the font for the bodies of articles. The giant block ads in the middle of articles are the worst types of ads any app can have. The ads on this app make me really want to find an alternative with more reasonable advertisements. I might start using safari to browse Reuters with my adblock. The second gripe I have is the font. I'm not a font expert but something about the font for the bodies of articles seems terribly out of place. The font doesn't match the aesthetic of the app at all. I don't even think it matches the font used on the Reuters website.

Now instead of an efficient listing of headlines where you pick the stories to read it has big pictures and you have have to scroll through bunches to get to stories. And it wants you to tailor to your preferences which is not the same as seeing a certain listing of the big stories. It’s pushing stories to you now, which diminishes your choice.

Aki.chan's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/5/18 4:31 PM
This was my go-to news app and I’d have easily given it 5 stars before the update. Before, everything was compact and easy to scroll through. It made getting a fast rundown of the current news super easy. Now, that’s totally gone. The pictures are huge. The headlines are just as large. It’s a lot of wasted space that requires you to spend time sifting through and scrolling from here to eternity to see everything. And rather than just have the top headlines, it forces you to customize the feed. That’s fine for a secondary feed but sometimes you just want all the current headlines in one place. Sorry guys, but this new update sort of killed my use of this app.

Mercury713's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/26/18 5:22 AM
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.

Techno hippy 1970's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/25/18 7:49 PM
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 doesn’t 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 — as far as I can tell. None of this ever happened with the old app. Additionally they’ve gone over to some weird interface that scrolls horizontally at the top but only includes Reuter’s suggestions. You have to scroll down to get to news that isn’t days old. Sadly, this was a 5-Star app before. Now, I’m giving this one star before I delete the app. Just sad. I used to read Reuters 4x/day before this new app was released.

21/8: I’ve tried to be patient with this new app. I have spent many years enjoying Reuters coverage and their prior apps. But I give up. Only the World news is updating. As of today, the most current news I have for US is over a day old and I got no news over the weekend. Science, Life, are more than 2 weeks old. I see some pictures with more current dates,but I don’t have time to click on pictures to decide if the news is relevant. Goodbye Reuters. It’s been a good run. Previous: Wastes a lot of screen space on my iPad even though I have set to Compact. Now I have to scroll across the top of the screen to change news sections - much more difficult than scrolling down left side which is now blank white space.

The new version most of the time fails to load news and is stuck in loading phase. This app used to be my favorite news app. Now after the update, I cannot use it any more. It seems that Reuters has bad quality control on this app and neglects the user experience.
realitycheckinc's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/18/18 4:50 PM
Wastes a lot of screen space on my iPad even though I have set to Compact. Now I have to scroll across the top of the screen to change news sections - much more difficult than scrolling down left side which is now blank white space. I guess there is no landscape optimized app for Reuters anymore.

Have to say I didn’t like the change to the new format at first, but now that I’ve gotten used to it, it’s quite good. Still the same great Reuters news ;)
Adverbly's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/18/18 3:37 PM
Similar to other reviewers, I like the other version better. I only have the topics I pick, maybe with an algorithm. It tends to drop off half the content I was mildly interested in & is too limiting. In theory I could add all topics - too many photos to do that. It’s like they fired an editor and left it all in our hands. A personalized tab is nice - but sometimes I want to know what’s really going on in the world. The ap used to do that, not so much anymore.
Ejaazi's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/18/18 1:25 AM
I like the new layout. If you want to scroll less, you can switch to compact view. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it needs to get better with notifications and Reuters is overdue for a widget.
Aggie4gom's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/17/18 2:23 PM
If you like to look at pictures, you may like this version. However most of the page is covered by pictures and the text news is gone. The Wire is gone with its excellent breaking news summary.
Irvdbdoqabd's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/16/18 6:56 AM
I tend to agree with many reviewers that the new layout is shiny but less functional for a quick scan. What really irks me however, is that there is no longer an option to select your region. The main annoyance is that people living in Europe are bombarded with American football and baseball stories in a section entitled “global sports”. I and most other non-US based people have zero interest in these games. Less trivial is the skewing of the news stories we see: it was nice to get more stories that reflected the interests of the international audience rather than being somewhat US focused. Still, Reuters is one of the few sources I go to for quality unbiased news.

JoeDierte's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/16/18 2:00 PM
I used to love this app with the integrated share button. Now I am forced to use their website to have access all stories. In their attempt to add an a la carte news experience in the app, they missed the mark by removing most stories found on the website. This new version should be seen as a "lite" version. Not as robust as before.
SMMG88's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/16/18 10:38 AM
The new version of the app lacks some of the key features of the old one. For example, “The Wire” is no longer embedded in the app. Furthermore, the subsections (eg “Deals”) is no longer available to view on its own. Overall I’m troubled by the new app interface. In fact I’ve switched back to using my browser and Reuters.com. Hope it can be fixed!
Cosmostarrr's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/15/18 4:45 PM
The app sets itself up to predetermined news feed no matter what you do. For instance; if you set “World “, “US Politics”, “Market Watch” it throws in for the good measure topics of “North Korea” and “Stocks” and other links I could care less about. I have tried many times to set it right but wasn’t able to. It always went back to predetermined news feed setting. For real? Speaking about readers mind control aren’t we? Shame on you Reuters...
Sunbear29's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/15/18 2:55 PM
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. Aug 15th update: Appreciate you taking out a ticket to look at this 2 weeks ago but still no updated version. This app delivers only a 55% viewing screen on an iPad in landscape format. Suburb world class news source by professional journalists but apparently comfortable in having the product delivered by IT in a way that limits its presentation. Somewhat like having a newspaper putting out a product where it's readers had to page backward. Please look at your fellow media providers such as the BBC, CNN and CNBC to see how they configure their products to benchmark.

Give me the old app. Please. Too many pictures, too much picture space, not enough text and substance. Instead of a pick of relevant cross-the-board news, you give me a jumble of choices of subjects and force me to pick each in turn - irritating to say the least.

realitycheckinc's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/12/18 3:12 PM
I made the mistake of updating to the new version. Landscape view on iPad Air 2 uses only half of the screen and shows only a few headlines per page. I have to scroll a lot and quickly to get the same news bytes I got before on one page. I have switched to Sky News for now which shows the same news with more headlines per page. I will switch back to Reuters (which I’ve loved for years) when they go back to providing news headlines in an efficient manner. News flash: busy people don’t have time to watch videos to stay up to date with the news.

Pat Man J0NES's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/11/18 6:57 PM
The bugs of this app are that section pages like ‘finance’ or ‘world’ will not load at all and there is sometimes the occasional crash. Not being able to even look at headlines because a section’s page won’t load is insanely frustrating since it makes the app almost worthless. Of course when I can actually see headlines and open articles there is almost always a decent amount of laughable grammatical or spelling errors. Reuters used to be a great news source, but their product the past few years has shaken my confidence in them as a viable media outlet.

Aki.chan's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/11/18 3:57 PM
This was my go-to news app and I’d have easily given it 5 stars before the update. Before, everything was compact and easy to scroll through. It made getting a fast rundown of the current news super easy. Now, that’s totally gone. The pictures are huge. The headlines are just as large. It’s a lot of wasted space that requires you to spend time sifting through and scrolling from here to eternity to see everything. And rather than just have the top headlines, it forces you to customize the feed. That’s fine for a secondary feed but sometimes you just want all the current headlines in one place. Update: I downgraded from two stars to one because the more I use this new version, the more I hate it. Please go back to the old design!

News is good but the new update leaves a lot to be desired — like the old format!

I’ll have to go elsewhere and just hope a new update is around the corner.
Reuters Friend's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/10/18 3:06 PM
The previous version was so much better and informative. It is a regrettable development, since the mandatory pre-selection feature cuts out other relevant economic, business and geopolitical news. The press generally is not fulfilling its responsibility to inform broadly, but promotes user’s “bubbling-in” their specific topics only (e.g. with recommended articles), which might lead to losing sight of other relevant topics, views, developments. At least a news service like Reuters should try to show a comprehensive, neutral overview first, before it limits the selection.
Nightliker's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 8/10/18 3:05 AM
The latest update ruined this app. I don’t need every single headline to take up the entire screen and show me a paragraph of a story I don’t want to read. I want to scroll (up and down not side to side) through headlines. If I want to read the article I will click on the headline. Roll it back! I will change my rating if you do.

There is a text-only setting that makes the list shorter, but bandwidth-hogging videos are liberally interspersed and cant be turned off, and an editor’s picks item at the top also gets in the way. Plus, it’s harder to switch among categories, as only some fit in the row at top. The design is very unfriendly and inefficient. Reuters is ruined.

Version 4.0 is a great update since it addresses a main issue: the high quantity of articles. Articles are better organized into customizable categories, and the editor’s pick sections highlight important news stories. Few suggestion: landscape mode on iPad and better information about stocks such as the company’s financials. The website version has better information about companies, including six sections: overview, news, key developments, people, charts, and financials. Hopefully, these sections will be in the app version in forthcoming updates. Currently, the news articles about the stock are very irrelevant. The news articles for a stock should be better aggregated. I look forward to forthcoming updates.
tral77's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 7/28/18 4:18 PM
I made the mistake of updating without researching the new version first. The previous version had a much more compact layout without huge pictures, and you could easily scroll through the articles. The new layout has huge pictures, and you have to scroll a lot and click on different tab sections to see the articles. Even with text-only mode selected, each headline still takes a large amount of space, and only a few headlines are displayed in each section before you have to click "more", which takes you to a page that's once again filled with pictures. Basically, text-only applies to the Home page only, and even then, there are still enormous ads with pictures. It would be much better if text-only applied to everything except for individual articles. With the new version, you have to scroll and click A LOT to see the articles, which is painful. For me, the old version was much better, where I could see a large amount of headlines at-a-glance. I wish I hadn't updated. I've now switched to using a prominent competitor's app which has a more compact layout, though not as good as the previous version of this app.

The app occasionally shows a little pop-up banner on top saying “3 new”, giving the impression that there are 3 new news stories. When the user touches the little pop-up, it scrolls to the top; however, there is no news story there. It’s the same news that were there some minutes ago. The only new thing there is a new ad banner on top, labelled “sponsored”. This is a dirty trick to fool the user to view more ads. Otherwise the app is nice.
SandmanToo's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 7/23/18 1:26 AM
If you only have one daily news source make it this app. Great app that loads quickly and problem free. I use the iPhone app as well but the iPad version with a great video summation gets my vote. If you are a cable cutter like me, Reuters presents the top news stories of the United States and the world. I was lacking solid news sources from radio, television and print so this app fills the gap of ‘what’s going on now’ news information gap. THIS is true journalism without leaning neither left nor right. No human source can ever be completely free of opinion or emotion, but Reuters does their best. 5 Star! Thanks Developers and Reuters!

I love Reuters. This is my only go to source for real news. However and when using the app, it gets quite buggy when scrolling up and down in the news articles. I’m on the latest 11.4.1 iOS software. This should not be happening on an iPad that is equipped with excellent hardware. Please please please fix the coding on this app. It needs to run fluidly when scrolling in an article. If there wasn’t any lag, I’d give this app 5 stars. PLEASE FIX THE CODING REUTERS!

The best business news app that you can get for free - and way better than the Bloomberg app which just recently increased the paywall (articles are not free anymore if you want to read more than ten a month). The watchlist you can create for stocks is very good, too, though from time to time not with prices that are up to date. But this is a minor annoyance compared to what this app delivers for free.

Through the years, Reuters has proven to be the best source of news around the globe. The Reuters app is the leader in the online news platform segment.

Great way to get a good sample of hot topics in the news. One issue -- there are video clips at the top of a bunch of the written articles. When I try to play, there is no audio. I think it has something to do with it wanting to play an ad, but the ad can't load in-app. When I look for the article on the website instead, the ad plays and the audio works.
DPF-ALASKA's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 4/25/18 5:53 PM
Reuters is about as close to being completely unbiased as a news source can possibly get. It’s easy to spot extreme bias (ie Fox News or Huffpost). But what’s a lot harder to spot is bias in which stories are being reported on, or which views are being explained. If you find that you just can’t understand the other side’s position, or that the only possible explanation is that they’re stupid and/or evil, you need a better news source. And Reuters is it. They’re consistently rated as one of the most unbiased news sources available. Not only are they’re stories written to give both sides a voice, their choice of stories does the same thing.

Changing my review because they've gone full on libtard over the last few months. Like any media outlet they're alienating half the country. Keep the editorials in the editorial section. I simply want the facts. And that means posting articles about both sides of an issue. They've gone so far down the anti-gun rabbit hole it's pathetic. And not that I need to qualify this. But I'm neither a conservative or a liberal. So I'm not blinded by bias.

Vagoopy's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 3/25/18 5:29 AM
Yearning for a news source to just present to me 'what is' in the country and world without insidious tricks to sway the mind, I at first thought Reuters was brilliantly unbiased. Perhaps at one point, such as a couple of years ago when I downloaded the app, they were. Still, some attempts at neutrality are dealt successfully. The front page though, in a heightened way as of late, has been narrative push after narrative push. I'm absolutely sick of being browbeaten. Isn't just about everyone else?
Stormwaltz's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 3/19/18 3:04 PM
Reuters is one of my preferred sources of news - neutral perspective and frequent story updates. However, in recent weeks I frequently see issues where my phone will heat up and ~20% of the battery will be drained in around 10 minutes, in addition to frequent "freezes" where the app won't respond to commands. It's *definitely* the Reuters app, this doesn't occur with anything else. (My speculation is that some ads in the app may link to bitcoin miners, but I don't know how to test that.)

Pat Man J0NES's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 2/19/18 4:39 PM
The amount of errors I find while reading this company’s articles is embarrassing. Hire a new editor (though I doubt Reuters even has one) or at the very least have the author proof read their articles before they submit them. I know trying to get the news out as quickly as possible is the goal, but having so many grammatical and structural errors in your articles makes it hard to take your news seriously. I will continue to give this app 1 star as long as the editing remained so bad. Really hard to believe y’all are professional journalists

For clear, concise, brilliant presentation of the news, nobody beats Thompson Reuters. Having said that, this application is seriously bugged up. I am on a new iPhone 8, and the Reuters application makes the phone radically heat up, and then the application will crash. I know that it’s the Reuters application that is doing this, because most of the time there are no other applications even open in the background. You folks really need to get this fixed. I reported the issue to Reuters via email, and got the standard automated canned response back from them. But no news since then. I will certainly revise my rating once they fix this problem.
misslejoie's Review of Reuters NewsReviewed on 1/17/18 7:08 PM
I studied journalism in college but chose not to pursue it. The industry lost it’s focus on reporting facts as a result of online blogs hijacking news consumption. Frankly, I became lazy and sought news aggregators to help me sift through constant information delivery in our digital age. Then the 2016 election happened. In order to walk the talk, I deleted apps which only reinforced my own perspectives. Doesn’t do much for healthy, intelligent debates with co-citizens, does it? Given the lack of hard reporting found in our social media feeds, but the influence these mediums have on our voting, policy making and relationships, I chose to download Reuters. Hard facts, folks, that’s what I want in news. If you don’t want the facts, and want to remain in your safe bubble of personal perspectives, read the HuffPo, Breitbart, or Drudge and enjoy the bots and stress.
