App Reviews

  • (Updated) don't install update if you haven't already.

    The Bing News app on Windows Phone devices was perfect. It was clean, easy, and put reading first, and all the bells and whistles of sharing and social network stuff second. Now it's rebranded or revive-branded to MSN, and available on iOS. 5 stars. UPDATEx1:. Constantly crashes. Not sure why Microsoft broke the app in an update. 1 star review. UPDATEx2: Microsoft pushed out a new update. This was first a 5 star review, then 1 star after a update caused it to crash after viewing a news article. Now it's 4 stars after they fixed it. 4 stars because it took them months to fix it. UPDATEx3:. The crashes are back in Feb 2018. Rating it a 1 again. I cannot read more than 2 news articles before it crashes. UPDATEx4:. Still crashing. However I've found that if I connect my phone to a VPN the crashes stop and I can read article after article. UPDATEx5:. They fixed the crashing issue. Thank you. All is well again. I can read multiple articles again. I like that when I pick one article to read it also prefetches/caches the article before and after that. I utilize that feature for the point in my commute where I enter a tunnel and have no service, but the app gives me 3 articles to read without any cell service. UPDATEx6:. The latest update that came out around July 1, 2018, now includes "sponsored" articles. It's clearly stated but also unwanted. Give me ads instead, or accept purchased ad removal. It also removed the full screen reading view which was one of the most compelling feature over all the other news apps. UPDATE x7: I still haven't updated to the July redisgn. But I did upgrade iOS to 12 and now the full screen reading view for articles (old original app without the fake news ads) is no longer full screen. It has a search bar at the top. Not sure if it's a API the app was using that Apple removed. Still 0 stars review. Bring back what made the original app so great on iOS and originally on Windows Phone.

    I liked the old format. This is to busy.
  • Best News App

    By Jason_WI
    Except for the links that click while scrolling, this is a great way to get your news. Would love a paid version!
  • Too busy

  • Choice of news sources have reduced over years

    By t123a123
    This is a 5 star app. The only caveat I found that the choice of news sources have reduced over the years. Please bring more choices for tech news. Don’t force to provide a unique nickname while submitting reviews.
  • Why?

    By @2836
    Loved it before....fixing something that wasn’t broken.
  • It would seem that the news would be of interest but its not

    By jeffgrau
    Some how this app should offer customization as the only thing I see is political journalism not about subjects that concern me . ThT respect the need to make this app more customizable. If that feature does not present itself soon I more likely to uninstall this app.
  • Better than Flipboard

    By rayesp
    Finally found a much better news app. Was getting tired of all the forced videos and ads in Flipboard.
  • Respect

    By Docthecat
    Although it is obvious that most articles are against the President, it would seem that at least the respect of office could be shown and his title of President instead of just his last name. This is just another far left , democrat app that hates anything about President Trump.
