    Love The News App

    I use this app probably more than any other. I love being able to select my preferred topics and channels. During elections I find it incredibly helpful. I don’t use magazines much in general the news content is great. Once you set your preferences I think it’s amazing

    iOS15 caused issue

    With iOS 15, the I have issues with going from an article to the front page. When I select an article, I am able to read it, but when I want to return to the top screen, there is no arrow at the top left as there typically is. For some articles, if I touch the top bar, the article returns the arrow, while others do nothing.

    News would be better with some changes.

    1. News should remember where you left off like Music. While it does offer the “continue reading” banner, I’d like to see a toggle to go back to the story or to the Today tab. 2. News+ Audio’s tab needs to lead to the News+ Audio channel. The main tab is way to sparse. It’s just suggestion, you can really look for anything. It’s pretty poorly implemented currently. 3. While I don’t see this happening, I would LOVE to see News+ subscribers get an add free experience. What am I paying for with News+? The ability to browse for magazines that I can look at for free when I go to the store or library?

    I want to like it

    I really like the layout and quality news articles but the push to join New+ literally made me delete it. I’ll scroll through and read articles that interest me but half seem to need a subscription. I wish they would just remove the New+ articles if I’m not paying for it. I use Google News and find the same quality but I’m not pushed to subscribe to anything. I’d move to Apple News once they give the option to hide the articles I’m not subscribed to.

    Hate ads

    I pay for Apple One Premier. Why am I seeing so many ads if I pay for a subscription? There should be no ads or at the very least LESS ADS. The app has gotten better otherwise. I miss a really old iPad app called “The Daily”. News and magazine type content with large photos and interactive. That should be the goal with the news app, or the magazine centric side. Would love an option to quickly recap the day in major news, sports, etc.
