Way to go Yahoo!!

I’m simply puzzled and strongly disagree with people who post negative remarks about Yahoo news. Some are simply rediculous. I love the trending news alerts and headlines as it keeps my attention. If I have a complaint, it’s in the name itself. “Yahoo” sounds childish or elementary even though it’s also has become an American brand name. But keep up the great work and your willingness to evolve with our changing times!! MANA (Make America Normal Again)!!! I miss boring and Normal!!!

Yahoo news app

The only problem with the app is that it often will not allow one to access the written article. Press the close “X” on the video & it flashes written article then flashes back to video. Also when I finally get to written article it automatically returns to video while I’m reading. Closing video takes me back to “Top stories” page so I can’t finish my read. Very frustrating.
Otherwise stories are great & I would love to be able to finish them.

Swipe Controls Horrible

The new swipe controls to exit an article is too close to the motion used to simply scroll through the article while reading. It is so annoying to be reading an article and the app closes because it thinks you are swiping to go back to the main page.

It is so frustrating the app is almost unusable at this point. I don't usually rate this app because its just a news aggregate. But this change has enraged me so much because of the habit I have in using this app and is a increased level of stress because of the frustration of simply "reading the paper". It is the equivalent of reading a newspaper in a tornado.

Get rid of this feature immediately.
