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.

Decent with flaws

Overall, this isn’t a bad app. Reading other reviews I see a lot of complaints about inability to comment and “fake news”. Neither are an issue for me personally.

My complaints about this app include the following. First, I cannot set my location, which means I cannot get local news tailored to me. Second, I cannot set filters. I’d like to filter out specific topics/keywords/etc. so that the news is actually interesting rather than an exercise in frustration. And last, I’d like to also filter out specific contributors (e.g. TikTok, Instagram).

Terrible app

Not sure if it’s the algorithm but the app pushes a lot of clickbait and one-sided/biased articles. Not too many objective articles which is terrible for the current state of the world where people just want straight fact and reporting without the biased opinion of the writer. Not to mention, the comments section is a rotten cesspool of people who seem to be on the extremes, in echo chamber, and only there for confirmation bias.

I probably had the app for 5+ years and I thought it was pretty neat. I thought it was more of just objective news back then and I was hoping it would get better but it just kept getting worse so finally deleting it.
