Comments and Ratings for Google News & Weather

Not much use (1.17.941)
10/01/2017 02:43:00 1/5 By VXC70
Continually cuts off whilst reading an article some articles don't even open to read nothing worse than starting to read a story and page goes blank rubbish about time google got it right

Disappointing (1.17.941)
08/01/2017 03:22:00 2/5 By Zaloph
Very clunky not easy to navigate and don't like the layout

Always good (1.17.941)

Excellent (1.17.941)
29/12/2016 01:27:00 5/5 By dspme
Far superior to Apple news. Stop living off your reputation Apple. Great interface, like the option to use black background to stop glare of white at night. Sections are intuitive and layout is superb.

It's a good way of getting your News

Leftwing tosh.

Major Step Backwards (1.17.941)
22/10/2016 03:20:00 1/5 By Antjuellie
If you haven't updated this app recently, don't bother until it's sorted. Most stories don't load, when you go back to the main page after your 1 in 10 articles has loaded it proceeds to open the drop down of all the other versions of the same article. Often when I close this drop down back it reloads the news articles & I can no longer find the next article I wished to read (if it would have loaded it). As much as I disliked the Apple news app I find myself using that now as this is so unreliable. Fix it quickly please.

Used to be perfect (1.17.941)
15/10/2016 03:46:00 1/5 By Citibadger
Since the various updates and the 'upgrade' to iOS 10, this app has become woefully slow. Each story takes an age to load up (if ever) and is painfully slow to navigate. I gave this app 2 stars,but have just downgraded to 1 star as stories now just refuse to load. I'm back to the BBC News app and that's much better. What on earth happened to this app? Such a shame.

Slow (1.17.941)
15/10/2016 01:44:00 2/5 By Blodders59
The scrolling top story bar with Amp on it is rubbish! You click on an item and it fails to load! Please sort it!

From 5 stars to 1 star (1.17.941)
13/10/2016 03:19:00 1/5 By Rforey
Latest update (for ios10) makes app unusable. Stories don't load (you have to open them in safari instead). Often randomly throws you out of a story and back to the main screen. Pop up ads block stories that do manage to load. Woeful, and Google don't actually seem to care.

Used to be great. New version very buggy (1.16.917)
28/09/2016 09:17:00 1/5 By El Pompise
Recent update means news sometimes doesn't load and has recently loaded the same story for every article. I used to love this app but bugs now make it unusable. Fix asap please!

Broken Widget (1.16.917)
27/09/2016 17:51:00 2/5 By Golf Yankee
The app does not update in the background, so the widget is never up to date. What's the point in a widget that never updates unless the app is opened?

Nice news app (1.15.831)
06/09/2016 14:24:00 4/5 By ashish.mad
Nice news app with better news selection and topics

Crap (1.15.831)
03/09/2016 06:12:00 1/5 By B3sun
The web pages were much better. This app is worse in every way. Slow, horrible to look at hard to see what I want to see, terrible graphics. I avoid it and go back to the web pages

Amazing app, tells you the weather & news it does what your want!

Nice app (1.15.831)
26/08/2016 13:46:00 5/5 By Bri-iow
Of the many news apps I have tried, I am finding this one to be one of the best. It has a nice clean layout with a section shows the local news in our area. All in all I am well pleased.

Well below expectations (1.15.831)
25/08/2016 17:44:00 2/5 By T.Staun
The app doesn't deliver the user experience you would expect from Google

Almost perfect (1.15.831)
21/08/2016 22:07:00 4/5 By Shibumi San
Great alternative to the BBC. You can get better coverage of local news, and with a selection of other sources you're not just getting a single organisation's views and styles. I would have given it 5 stars if I could stop seeing the Daily Mail pop up. Who wants to read a serious article and then see links to articles focusing on the weight of film stars?

Nice but smaller tabs and letters would help much more (1.15.831)
10/08/2016 09:28:00 3/5 By AlexCorfu
Less is more in this case so I would prefer smaller letters and more compact interface to include more news. The desktop webpage probably contains more interesting news in one scroll than this app.

Excellent product

Great App (1.15.831)

Perfect for local and world news, easy to use.

Pretty poor effort for Google (1.15.831)
26/07/2016 21:04:00 2/5 By Aca paca bosh
The Queen of England could have been shot dead and my number one story would be Donald Trump said something silly or Miley Cyrus broke wind in public. No matter how I configure my settings my feed is predominantly American news and pretty low ranking stories at that. If I drill down I find some real stories, but surely Google could create better algorithms than this. Also, the photos assigned to stories are often unrelated to the article. I read a local news item about a DJ on a paedophile charge. It was accompanied by a photo of Ronnie Corbett who had recently passed away. If your technology doesn't work, don't launch it. The above example demonstrates it can be quite hurtful when it goes wrong. Generally a pretty poor app when the news webpage is pretty good.

Keeps crashing (1.15.831)
23/07/2016 21:44:00 1/5 By Jake Bessell
Keeps crashing when I try to search

News Articles don't load. (1.15.831)
21/07/2016 07:11:00 1/5 By DarklyDreamingDarby
So many of the news articles don't load, so if o want to actually read a particular news article, I have to go to google news in Safari in order to do so.

Yep it's very good. Too easy to slag off google (1.15.831)
18/07/2016 21:37:00 5/5 By Hey ho, wossitallabout eh?
This is so much better than the BBC news app. Although the reports are 3rd party (guardian, independent etc.) it does bypass that nauseating BBC bias.

Bang on (1.15.831)
16/07/2016 09:19:00 5/5 By Right said Phil
It's the simply the best news app there is. Soooo much better than the standard iOS one

Very good (1.15.831)
