I read most of my news from USA’s platform

I previously reviewed the USA Today news app (Please see previous review below). My issue is when you go into a specific article as your scrolling through different links in the article keep taking you into either other news or irrelevant information. I’ve had this app for years and up until they “updated” and change the user layout and interface the app never operated in this manor. To make matters worse, the developer contacted me via email and stated that they fixed this issue based on my previous review and as it stands it still isn’t corrected so this make me think even worse towards the app. Conclusion, the app used to be great, and straightforward to use it has started to veer off course for whatever reason 🤷🏻‍♂️ In my opinion probably better to try out different news source apps.

(PREVIOUS REVIEW)
I’ve been using the app with USA for many many years now BUT.....while it’s still my preferred news, I’m beginning to question it and possibly look into other reliable news source because the newer user interface is too commercialized. For only one instance while reading an article and scroll without clicking any specific thing, a commercial will randomly start playing 💁🏻‍♂️

You’re liberally bias, I have no issue with bias if you state it. Stop acting objective

I’m independent and like objective news sources. That’s increasingly hard to find these days, other outlets I appreciate because they state their leanings. I wish the news didn’t lean a certain way, but at least they put the proper disclaimer on it. Like a movie properly rating itself so you understand what you are about to view. You and other news outlets should strongly consider this course of action. It’s disingenuous and misleading to act objective while simultaneously pushing an obviously liberal/progressive agenda. Your editorial board and contributors are liberal leaning at the very least. I’ve seen you post opposing opinions, but overwhelmingly the opinions expressed here are liberal and it doesn’t take a conservative or trump supporter to see that, of which I am neither. I personally feel we all have a bias of some sort, but some are more willing to address and correct it than others. I personally actively try to dismantle my own arguments regularly to see if they can withstand basic scrutiny. Perhaps your network should consider doing the same, or simply state your bias. That would be a good first step toward better serving the people who consume your content.

Pretty, but no longer useful

I've had this app for many years. While it's gotten prettier to look at, it's gotten less useful as time goes on. Absolutely every time I use it, the app shuts down on me no less than three times before I've scrolled all the way through the Top Stories. Also, there are now paid advertisements that look like stories, right within the midst of the real news. If you're not careful, you're actually reading advertisements from sources like The Motley Fool and others. This is deceptive, and rather cheap of USA Today to fund their app this way. Other news apps do not take this approach. On the whole, USA Today app doesn't always have the latest news. I'll read a story from another news source on Twitter that was posted several hours ago, and I'll head to the USA Today app for more information, only to see they haven't even written about it yet. It's usually there by the end of the day, but it's half a day behind other news outlets. On the whole, USA Today is a pretty app that doesn't always work, has paid advertising peppered throughout their real stories and is usually behind other apps in posting the latest news.
