Thanks so much for the kind words in your review, we really appreciate it! -AB
The ap itself provides articles you can click on and read. For that purpose alone it works as stated and should. I have been using yahoo since the 90’s and have seen all of their changes come and go and while the design and featured content on this ap is probably the worst I have seen from them, it is straight forward and functions as you would expect. The only downgrade as far as the news section I have is how they change article headlines. You see a headline, read an article in the morning. Later on you come across a new headline about the topic and think oh, new info let me check it out. When you open and start reading, you discover it is the exact same article you read earlier.
When trying to continue discussions on the other hand the ap really fails. Half of your comment history doesn’t show up, and with the ones that do show, several of them if you click on the comment it doesn’t lead you to where your comment is, just the article in general.
To get around this I tried viewing in browser where all comments show up, and some comments will take you to the location in browser, but most jump to the ap store telling you to download yahoo news ap.
So if you actually care about being able to track your comment history to engage with people do not bother with this ap.

Biased, and Even Lie They are Bias
Yahoo responded to my review and said, “We offer news coverage from a variety of sources, and some lean more liberal while others lean more conservative. We work hard to present a balanced view of the news from a variety of perspectives across the political spectrum.”
Yahoo is the biggest joke. Any id*ot will tell you that this response to my review is a huge lie. Now back to my original review below.
The application itself works ok but a little glitchy. What I don’t like is the liberal loony tune articles that are clearly pushing a leftist agenda. Yes, fake news has been published on yahoo until it was exposed by conservative news outlets: the Covington fiasco, the BuzzFeed Mueller lie, Smollett to name a few. Be warned that yahoo will rarely post anything from conservative networks or news sites; they have no problem admitting they are a bias left news outlet. If they say otherwise, they lie.
And most liberals like it because it is a place for them to vent their frustration against conservatives even if the news is manipulative or full of half truths.

Thank you for the feedback. We offer news coverage from a variety of sources, and some lean more liberal while others lean more conservative. We work hard to present a balanced view of the news from a variety of perspectives across the political spectrum.
