Self control

I’m glad to see the ability to leave comments gone. It’s a real shame however that people do not use self control on platforms like this. I can understand being passionate about a belief or whatever but people just take it too far. I have no real issues with the app but I definitely liked the previous layout much better.

Not a good product

There are countless problems with this app. Here are a few. The app highjacked My Yahoo news feed. I understand that it is a Yahoo product, but there really isn’t any better way to describe an abrupt change in format of a different app without a way to toggle back to the original app. Another problem is that the Privacy statement is in Spanish. The entire legal package including all the weasel language is in English, except for the Privacy statement. Oath seems to be involved with the Privacy statement. However all I can find is a hip hop ad trying to tell me how cool Oath is without telling what Oath does. An additional problem is that there is now way to track your comments.

Too much crap!

Too little hard news, narrow range of news topics, old news - stories stay up for days or are already out of date material, tons of clickbait, single sentence news bites with no substance. People have complained for months about these issues, the app often asks for feedback, but doesn’t really care what you think. Don’t waste your time. Just a trashy app. If you like it, you probably are a knuckle dragging trailer park denizen.

Bring back the comments. That’s what makes the app worthwhile. Yahoo! dumber than a box of rocks for removing that function. Used to spend hours on it; now 5 minutes and I’m done, if I bother at all.
