News app needs a lot of work.

Some food for thought: If the “free” version of an app is bad, it’s not exactly encouraging to me to explore the paid option. It seems like news outlets that like to use a lot of images (BuzzFeed comes immediately to mind), images often don’t completely load. Some will load others will show content couldn’t load. In todays media world where lists dominate most of the non-news articles this is a huge problem. Also, if someone isn’t a News+ subscriber baiting readers into News+ articles then going “hey you need to pay to proceed” is a horrendous idea and user experience. Curation is a mixed bag - the app responded appropriately to the type of articles I like (ie finance, technology) but then outlets you block specifically show up still with a content blocked message which is a waste of space where something else could’ve gone?

Clearly biased news app

I have the paid version of apple news. One of the options is to block publishers you don’t like to read and “like” publishers you do. You would think the point of this is to customize your news feed with articles you would be interested in reading. However it does almost the opposite. It seems apple is intent on pushing their stories regardless of my preferences or directly against my blatant request to block specific channels. Why provide the feature if you are simply going to avoid it. As a company that holds itself as the protector of privacy and rights, this is a sad and obvious example that actions speak louder then words. Case in point, to see how ingrained this was to the algorithm that chooses stories on my main board. I blocked the channel “the Washington post” I also disliked every story they posted for the past 2 weeks. I likewise did the opposite for the daily wire. Liking the channel itself and asking for “request more” on every story they published again for two weeks. What was the result? I still get headline new feed stories with “this article you’ve blocked, would you like to ready it” from the Washington post and still nothing from the daily wire. I get it, maybe you have a clear biased against specific news outlets, but don’t hide behind creating hallow user rights and fake choice options for your readers.

Partisan and pay walls

I have not paid for a subscription so maybe the experience is different if you do. However, I have found the articles they post to be very left leaning. I lean left myself but I don’t need to be in my echo chamber of righteousness all the time… I like articles that make you think and present both sides. I understand this is rare because of where the content comes from but at least they could present articles from both sides in my feed. I also think there’s a fundamental problem with Apple (or Google) being in the news game. Companies with so much access to our personal data should not be charged with informing us of the world around us. Sadly there are no easy answers here… I’m not the first to say that this is one of the biggest challenges we face today as a society. Anyways, as much as I would prefer to use this app and its beautiful layout (which imho is its greatest strength… it really does LOOK good) I will continue using Google as my primary news feed. It’s free and, at least in my feed, seems to feel more like news than propaganda. OH and the notifications that I never asked for from this app are click bate at its worst, leveraging your fear, anger, and self-righteousness to get you engaged.
