  • Widget broken

    By Squatting Hen
    Widget used to work now it loads nothing. Uninstall and reinstall didn't fix it either.
  • Too curated around social news. Want better headlines from Important news.

  • Extremely confusing gesture

    By Cloudyhill
    It’s really hard to use gesture to go back to the main page after reading an article. Very often it ends up going to the previous article.
  • Get rid of the news

    By jim89el
    I got this app to read eversions of some subscribed magazines. That’s it. I have other and better sources fir news, and I don’t want Google trying to push their idea of what news I want to read to me. With this app, it’s all but impossible to even _find_ the magazines to which I subscribed. Junk.
  • Simply bad

    By Carl1260
    If the review accepts negative rating, I would have given it. This is simply an bloated and badly “redesigned” or “improved” app.

  • I give up

    By gDos
    G News Has been slow and crummy for a long time. I just tried to give it another go but their forced log into your Google account makes it a complete pain in the butt and it’s just not worth it
  • Super Frustrating

    By Barefootraveler
    The latest major version took away a ton of customization capabilities. Why isn’t there a way to sort news results for customized topics chronologically? I used to use Google News hourly, now it’s like once a week. I don’t want the biggest news hit when I look at topics—I want the NEWS
  • Poor

    Why do we have to sign in when it’s free to use on the internet. Should be able to use & view without having to sign in to an account.
