Ratings and Reviews
A great app! PLEASE also add Opinion/Editorial section
Google news is a great tool to read content from diverse news agencies.
REQUEST: Please also add Opinion section as in India, a a huge chunk of population is students preparing for competitive exams or academicians. Editorial/Opinion section will be happy gift to them, who then can read both news and news and Editorial ar one place and also need not rely on single/left leaning editorials like of Hindu and will have exposure to diverse views on the same issue from different media groups.
Awesome Design/ Improvements to be made
The UI is beautiful and scrolling is smooth.
>Add Option to switch off/on local headlines in the For You tab. Some users are not interested in politics and the headlines are always talking about it. It always covers the top news for briefing in the For You tab. It even takes up all the space in the widget and so my personalised news is never shown in the widget
A little buggy!
On iPhone 7 and iPad 6th gen, I have observed a few bugs.
When clicking on "Headlines", the top bar which says Latest, Indian, Business, etc. fails to load the names correctly 4 out of 5 times.
And whenever it is not able to retrieve the proper names for the tags it labels almost all the tags as "Latest".
This problem has been there for almost a month now and hasn't been resolved even after multiple updates and reinstalled on both the devices mentioned above.
