App Reviews

  • Loved the OLD app- Why change it?

    By Dacinlu
    Everything that I liked about the old app was taken away.... Why??! I agree with most of the recent negative reviews - My feedback - 1) where is the ability to have a dark background for reading at night? 2) I loved having news separated into categories (I don’t need entertainment “news” mixed in with science, world etc) Similar to a newspaper divided into sections, I used to know where I would likely find a news item I was looking for 3) there is too much wasted space between news items, even when I request “fewer pictures” 4) I used to be able to add my local newspaper info and get local alerts. 5) I see little difference between “Top News” and “My News”.. same stuff put in whatever random order AP selects. PLEASE understand that the reason I am unhappy with the new app is that it is getting in the way of accessing the incredible reporting and timely news that I have come to count on the AP for! There are so many important, breaking news items that I have read about first in my AP app...it is the first place I look to see what is happening around the world. Please bring back the features we all loved in the old app, and keep the top-notch reporting. OK? Thanks.
  • One Of The, If Not THE, Best News Source(s)

    By Logan.D.Leatherman25
    Back when I was on social media, I came across a graph rating most of the known media outlets in terms of quality of publications and respective bias to the left or right, what with “fake news” having become a household phrase. In the center-most column (indicating neutral bias) at the top of the quality chart was AP. I looked into what that was and it turns out it was the Associated Press. So I downloaded this app, and sure enough the articles are high quality journalism, and due to the myriad sources from which the Associated Press acquires information for their articles, there is rarely if ever any interjected bias like there is in many other media outlets. I really like that they do a weekly fact-check of the actual “fake news” to keep readers well-informed of what news is real. The only other news sources that I would say come close to AP are Reuters, The Economist, and possibly USA Today. I don’t get my news from anywhere else now.
  • The App Functions Great

    By prayerguru
    This review is not about the content. All news is written from one world view or another and AP writes from their liberal slanting world view. The most important thing about any app is that it delivers content. I have tried tons of news apps and most of the others don’t deliver content without being cluttered by a multitude of advertisements. AP has ads, but they are positioned in less annoying positions and they do not have pop ups like CNN who pushes their own content via ads. CNN pushes their programming in ads; that's annoying. The second thing very noticeable at the AP app is the headlines of articles. They have far fewer tantalizing and sexually immodest headlines. On Fox News app for example, they tease with sexual innuendo in the headlines. We don’t need that when striving to practice personal holiness. I gave the AP app 5 stars because is delivers news and stays out of the way with ads, while aiming to keep the headlines, articles and photos modest.
  • Headline pictures are still too large, too few headlines

    By TadpoleOH
    I just checked out the new app again, and it is still worse than the old app. It does not make sense to me that as we get bigger phones, app makers like AP seem to think they need to make the pictures even bigger. The whole idea of a bigger screen is to see more content, not just bigger content. They somehow think that more is to “enlarge” they pictures. As I have pointed out before, simply put, you can browse 7 headlines with images in the old app, but the new app only allows 2 to 3 headlines, below a 1/5th of the screen top header line count of articles. (Not to mention the new humongous advertisement as the 4th one; I would gladly accept an ad in the old 7 header format). Even with the images off (which I do not want to do), the new app only shows 4-5 headlines. I am glad the old app is still populating. I have noticed delays recently though when I rarely open the pictures that go with an article. So I wonder how much linger they will keep it running. They did stop posting the warning that the app is going away soon. So maybe there is hope AP realizes the new app stinks and will keep the old interface.
  • Great New AP App

    By Douglas the II
    This is a great new AP app. Think this one will be better than the old one. 5 Stars! And to anyone who says this is a new News site, you may be too young or just have been living under a rock! The AP has and always will be the regular source that your local news CNN FOX ABC NBC CBS news affiliates and partners and again your local news get all their news from the AP news wire. And yes they are well known for pictures and video that’s also where your local news get its news from. So don’t bash the Associated Press for the one who wrote such a horrible review about the APP no one made you download it and if you hate it so bad then delete it and just wait for your regular news site to bring you the same news that you can get 20 times faster than your local news does. This is a great app and for anyone in the news business knows that this is where the AP wire comes from and maybe speak up and let’s all support the AP!
  • Awful -original is much better

    By Wx239wwsty
    Too bad they will be doing away with a MUCH friendlier app than this replacement. The new app does not present the stories as well organized as the previous app. It's like someone said: "Gee, it's time to update the app"- and totally blew it. Where I expect a written story, I get videos. Where is the news? Lots of junk. There is no way to have white letters on a black background so that you can read the news easier at night. This is a complete dud. I thought it was a joke, but I keep getting messages that the old mobile app will be going away soon. Did anyone even beta test this with a broad spectrum of people? Seems like the techies/marketing people got together and decided "Gee, people don't really want to read the news in an efficient way; guess we will dream up how they want to read/view the news without consulting them." I have a LOT of respect for the AP reporters; apparently the developers of this app do not. Nor do they have respect for AP News readers. Disgusting. I will NOT be using such an unfriendly app. If I could give zero stars, that's what it would get. As they say:"If it ain't broke, don't 'fix' it."
  • It’s AP news ... from the AP ... uh, on the AP app

    By Pigwatcher
    If you like AP news and have an iPhone which uses apps, then this is the AP news app for you. The search is over. It’s the AP, bringing together the power of being informed by AP news and the relevance of app technology, and best of all, it works, most of the time. Just be aware that sometimes it gets updated ... because apps sometimes update. And I don’t think they’re selling my information to anyone, but who knows? Any drawbacks are easily overshadowed by the convenient scrolling and tap-to-choose selection features, which use technology you may not know is already built into your Apple device. Not only are you enjoying AP news on your AP news app, but you are maximizing some of your iPhone’s most basic functions. Avoid fake news and get the AP news app, it’s just like Associated Press news, but in an app.
  • I wish everyone had this ap

    By Soldier of 1776
    I wish everyone had this ap. Pun intended. Accurate news, decent commentary pieces (when they publish them). Objective news, occasionally sparse. The weekly fact-checking feature was originally written with a tongue-in-cheek air, but has since developed a more appropriate serious tone. Only complaint is the ap updates news slower than internet (usually about ten minutes behind), so you’ve got to google breaking news or sit in front of the TV with a strainer. This is really not a complaint I guess, just human impatience interfacing with accurate print journalism. Overall this ap has greatly improved my understanding of the world and it takes less time to get the news than sifting through the noise on TV. I recommend pairing it with the Reuters ap.
  • My favorite source but...

    By CassiusM5516
    Pro- I can access news wires in states I have connections to. Con- Story content on wires is limited and sometimes connected to websites that require me to visit a news organization’s website within the app (for example The Boston Herald)and sometimes you can’t access this content at all without a paid subscription Pro- Top stories section has a variety of content that I want to read first, and a good range of topics Con- sometimes the most recent stories do not filter to the top so old content from yesterday might be ahead of something from today Pro- Breaking news alerts are quicker than anyone else Con- No stories or even just a brief description of the news alert is ever provided. You get a “story is too new” type message and it tells you to check back later-later could be over an hour where as other news organization apps will have already posted a story I love this app and it is my trusted news source. I am however getting frustrated with it freezing, crashing and still being frozen when I exit and renter it after several attempts. A lot of the stories you’ll be reading, you scroll down and it just completely freezes. Please fix this or I am going to delete you again. Your old app was much better in terms of content, navigation and stability (2 yrs ago).
  • Reliable Source of Vetted News

    By caturah
    AP is not a new startup. AP has been providing quality, vetted news for well over 20 years. They have no bias. They report the news truthfully. Media Outlets have primarily used them in the past. It is a wonderful thing to have access to all AP stories. Before this app we were only able to read stories selected by the media outlets. Now it is all here in this app and I am free to read ALL the news. I trust their accuracy in reporting unconditionally. No matter the format with which you get your news, We must have trusted journalists and editors of authentic news. These people wade through the “crap news” that some folks throw up against the wall to see if it sticks. These guys are the real deal. Our watchdogs and guardians of free speeeck.
