Ratings and Reviews
Great app but with a very annoying bug.
I use the app every day and this app is my hub for all kinds of news. It’s a great way to browse through news and gives me news about all the topics that I am interested in. However, one star less in the review because... when I am on this app reading news... I can not multitask. I cannot seemlessly switch between apps and come back to where I left off reading the news.
The app always refreshes itself when I go back to it from the multitasking menu and goes to the first page as if I have opened it for the first time and I loose the news article that I was reading. It gets really annoying... Google.. if you happen to read this review... please fix the bug.
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.
Why refresh the content when going background for a while
Whenever I go to background to open some other app momentarily and come back to the article on google news, it refreshes the entire app and I lose the currently opened page. I mean what the hell is this.?? Moreover even if required you click the button inside the article to open website, it opens the link in browser and if you go back to the app to see the next article, Boom, the app refreshes again and you lose your progress. Extremely annoying. Did not expect this from Google. At least put a check that if the app is in background for more than 10 mins then refresh the content NOT 10 seconds.
