  • The very best news app there is.

    I have used them all, but this is now the very best one out there. The latest version allows you to select from three different views: the standard view, compact, or text only. This is really an exceptional feature. The strengths of this app is that it collects news from a wide variety of reputable sources, including both conservative and liberal perspectives. You can also add your own topics, and you can put everything in whichever order you prefer. You can scroll from article to article without having to go back to the main menu, and these articles will fill almost the entire screen. When you’ve read to the end of an article, you can swipe forward through headlines to skip articles you don’t want to read. That makes it easy to use and efficient on one’s time. Very nice. This app strikes the right balance between text and pictures for the top level menus. The pictures are helpful because they quickly identify what the topic is, but they are small enough to make scrolling quick and easy. The headlines are detailed enough to identify the topic as well. The scrolling both within and between articles is very smooth. The font in the individual articles is consistent throughout as opposed to mimicking the original source. Personally, I think this consistency is a plus. Text is in a clear, bold and easy to read type. (Size is adjustable, but only with three options.) Finally, it is reasonably uncluttered as far as advertisements ago, and that is always a big plus. There are advertisements, to be sure, but they are clearly marked “sponsored“, and when you are scrolling through the articles in order, they are skipped. The only way you see them is if you click on them from a top level category or inside an article. Typically, there is only one per category or article. This seems reasonable to me. Overall, this latest revision is really well designed, and is now the very best news app available for those who are looking for reliable information from a variety of sources in a well-designed package, IMHO. Developers also appear to be reading the reviews, and responding to them when they can. This is my number one news app these days. Tip: When organizing your favorites, you will have to put your finger on the selection icon and hold it there for a second or two before you can move it. Another Tip: If you are really interested in international news, you can just change editions. For example, changing to the Canadian edition brings up a great selection of news from across the country within a couple of seconds, much more than you would see simply by adding it as a topic. Very impressive. One improvement: Having the ability to select news sources rather than just topics would be great, but given that there is a good range of perspectives included, I don’t think this undermines the five star rating. Second improvement: it would be nice to have the option to not have to see the “my news“ section or to place it where I want.
  • Very useful app

    Microsoft News is a great app for checking the latest news quickly and easily. You can go as deeply into the news as you like or just get the highlights.
  • Fantastic App, but man, are the News Articles Biased

    The interface and aesthetics of the app are phenomenal, however, I wish that Microsoft gave us the ability to choose who we actually follow on the web. Set aside any feelings you have about politics/etc., and just focus on what would make the app better for the end user. I personally don’t align with any political party, but can tell when developers favour certain news organisations over others. I wish Microsoft would allow me to choose whoever and not choose whoever I want in regards to subscribing when using the app. I like to follow certain websites when scouring the web for news and this app doesn’t allow me any customisation whatsoever on that front. Until this happens, I will keep this uninstalled from my device. 5/5 app interface 0/5 customisation 2.4/5 overall review +0.5/5 because Apple doesn’t do half stars Thanks for listening!

  • This News App is Not Customizable

    By 163970$
    Not a good app cuz it forces the reader to accept news sources that are preselected and fed to the reader without the ability to adjust/modify the app to remove news sources that are not actually news agencies but propagandist corporations that cater to promoting extreme agendas and concepts and not real fact-based, event-driven news. So long as this app remains un-customizable I will rate it very low.
  • Clickbait

    Full of clickbait and no way to remove a news source. This must be a third party deal and not a real Microsoft product.

    Good recap of the days news, but don’t expect to see much balance of political views. Most of the sites posted are left leaning.
