Okay, too many video only articles.

The recent changes seem to throw a lot of video at readers in articles. Many times I like to just read article,then maybe watch associated video. Would be nice to be able to pause the video. Video uses a lot of data and even though many have unlimited plans the data is slowed down after a certain amount of data usage.

Variety and less biased

Yahoo offers a much broader look at the news with many articles about human interests and not just political views about every aspect of life. Yahoo news is more enlightening and less anger. I like the news Yahoo offers. It is one of approximately 15 news feeds so I am able to see many viewpoints of what is happening in United States , from around the World.

Glitches to different story when clicked

The app often opens an entirely unrelated story when when I’m trying to follow a different headline. Then when I go back, I can’t find the story I was originally interested in reading.

It also switches articles. Often, when I’m in the middle of reading a long story it will suddenly switch to a different article with no way to get back to the story I was reading. The only option is to spend 5-10 scrolling through the feed hoping to find the headline again. This is especially annoying when I’m 15 minutes or more deep into a long read article.
