Great News. Great Company. Great App.

I actually work for Gannett (USA Today’s parent company)- but as unbiased as I can be - this app is awesome. They are a solid company & provide a well designed app to the everyday person even to the news junkies. As a company - They don’t look to invade your privacy, they have great leadership, they have incredible people working for them and dedicated & award winning reporters who look to bring real news to the people. They are a company who looks to help humanity, further all beings & bring legitimate unbiased news and services in the best of ways. Get the app, select your news preferences, allow the notifications. It’s a lot (as far as notifications go) if you want it to be, but it’s worth it to be updated on the things you want to know. Well done as an app for an employee, or for anyone, and for everyone. Especially during these times. Thanks all.

Frustrating interface

Number one most frustrating issue: every time you set the phone down or switch apps and come back the story you were reading scrolls back to the top of the article. Super annoying and serves absolutely no purpose. Can’t imagine this would be hard to correct, so please make this stop. I beg you.

Second, and this is a compound issue: the main news feed refreshes too often. In the past, the top stories section was just that. Just the most newsworthy stories of the moment. Now, you have packed seemingly every story on the platform all into the top stories section. Well, I could live with that except as I work my way through the never ending list of articles, the app refreshes the feed every so often making me lose my place. To add to the nuisance, all the stories are now in a different order so I can’t really ever get back to where I was.

Please pick one or the other: 1) go back to the perfectly logical way you had it before where the top stories were indeed the top stories and I will go into the individual sections for more depth on what I want more of, or 2) turn off the occasional refresh and let me do that whenever I feel the need. It’s fine if it refreshes when you open the app, just not during an active session.

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.

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 💁🏻‍♂️
