Great app - location not working

This is my favourite news app but for some reason I cannot turn location services on. When the google news app asks if I want use location services and I press “enable” the iOS permission window does not appear. Subsequently there is no option to enable location services in the iOS settings for this app. The absence of the iOS permission window following a press of enable looks like an issue with the app and iOS communicating properly. Tried multiple reinstalls to no avail. Hopefully a fix will arrive soon.

Much nicer than Apple News app

I don’t use the Apple News app anymore because the Google News app is so much better. The layout is much cleaner and easier to navigate and read. Animations are lovely and smooth. It feels like there are way more sources in Google News and the reading experience on iPad is much more comfortable. It’s a very smooth app. Also, it surfaces the right news at the right time and I find it easier to train than the Apple News, because every article has a “more of this” or “less of this” toggle so you can easily tell it what you like. I still use RSS for a concentrated view of my tech news, but for general overall news this is the best.

Deep news mining

Google News app is fantastic. It mines news from well-known and not-so-well-known sources. That multi platform approach delivers more perspectives on the news so that we’re not tied to relatively few powerful media outlets (with their own vested interests on manipulating the news). If you find a topic of interest, with a flick of your finger you can see how different outlets are reporting on it; some revealing more information than others etc. Very handy indeed. I also love the ease with which you can share articles with friends; about two clicks and it’s shared!
