  • AP Mobile - Breaking News
    Eric Lenser Published date: September 20, 2017

    Overall it's a great app but behind the scenes, over the last couple of weeks, someone decided to start sending push notifications for every single story. Baseball, category 1 hurricanes, usually 10+ for any larger event. Probably reinstalling because it won't let me leave my phone alone for more than fifteen minutes before I get pinged again.

    I get notifications, but can't always immediately read the story. I like to try to read them later. I find the notifications often don't bring me to that specific article or to an updated version of the article or even to related topics. The notifications often just bring me to the Top News page. I chose the AP for more world views & less biased views, but other aps I have found to be more easily navigated and links remained with the notification. Full Review

    Content loads much faster now with the latest update! AP has a great reputation for accuracy and objectivity. I used to read Yahoo News (most of which were AP stories anyway), but got fed up with mean/ignorant user comments. This is a wonderful app: quick access to quality news stories and photos in intuitive categories, rapid updates, etc. Fast, clean navigation between stories. Full Review

    Charles Czuhajewski Published date: December 27, 2017

    So far I only use the app to read recommended articles via notifications. Notifications however do not take me to the article of the headline and instead take me to the top news feed. Other reviews show other people having the same issue, and it has persisted across multiple updates. Like another reviewer, I like to get to the articles at my convenience, which may be a day later. When this is the case I cannot find the article on the news page or by searching. If I check on a notification right away I can usually find the article on the news page, so for now I just have to get to the articles sooner. I cannot rate the app any higher until this issue is resolved. Full Review

    Gary Cavallo Published date: December 17, 2017

    Great app for news and often the first to report certain events. My one peeve is that when I click on push notifications I want to open, it'll bring a smaller box up asking if I want to open or dismiss. When I click open it doesn't bring me to the article, just the main page. Then I have to scour other news articles to find the one I wanted to open. It's a bit annoying as other news apps handle this function fine. If this is fixed then this would be a five star app. App is stable and works fine otherwise. Interface is clean and easy to navigate. I'm using it on an LG V10. Full Review

    The app is good. But, I am having a problem getting local news feed settings save on the app. Also, I don't like timeline gaps the features pages. It seems the feed doesn't refreshes often enough. I normally still receive week old news after I read it. That purges the more recent stories. Full Review

    Richard Robbins Published date: December 6, 2017

    In a world where "news" means slanting facts to support somebody's agenda, AP stands above the rest by simply reporting news. Their app is also without flare, thus making it easy to get information. Love it! I hope they don't change what works. Full Review

    Mary Brat Published date: October 5, 2017

    I like getting the headlines in short form, and AP delivers with the option of reading the longer, more detailed version, at my convenience. The only downside is when they notify of breaking news it doesn't show when you open the app. You have to scroll down to find it. In all fairness there may be a setting where that could be changed, but I haven't taken the time you look. Full Review

    Published date: September 17, 2017

    Excellent, esp in the way it delivers news alerts, very concise, unobtrusive, easy to see what it is and decide then if you want to open the app or not. Very quick loading, even on my old Note 3. The content is good, varied. This is by far my favorite news app. Others seem bloated compared to this. Thank you. Full Review

    A Google User Published date: November 1, 2017

    2017 update: been using some variation of this app for years, and it's a consistent good source of pure mess. Always reliable, and useful. 2014 update: Been a while since I first used this app, but I've come back to it with the loss of my old news source. It's still a good app for your basic news, but I feel like there are a real loss in most specialty news sections vs other apps these days. Full Review

    Don Rose Published date: December 31, 2017

    This is the best news app by far in my opinion. I have tried very many and when you get an update and tap it to read the article in most cases it doesn't go directly to it and you end up having to search for it. Not the case here! Full Review

    Published date: February 12, 2018

    My go to App for a quick look at the news in the morning. Excellent layout, good coverage, generally objective and factual. Update 12/11/2017. Content is still good but have noticed over last couple of months app takes forever to load on 2 Samsung tablets. Scolling is sluggish and occasionally hangs up. Overall it's gone from great to marginal. Dropped two stars because of ongoing technical issues. Full Review

    Tim Vargo Published date: December 31, 2017

    The news reporting is top-notch, but this app needs some love. I do like the multi-stacked notifications, but tapping on a notification does not open THAT news story as one would expect. Instead it simply opens the AP app to the home screen. It is often very difficult to then find the story you had tapped on, which is extremely frustrating. Full Review

    Goofy Dood Published date: November 29, 2017

    A fairly good source of unbiased news. However, when you tap on "open" in a notification, it doesn't take you directly to that story. It takes you to the main AP page. I had to drop the rating again because it is still a problem and has been for a while. There are many complaints. I just clicked on a notification, it opened the app, the story wasn't even in the main page. Sometimes, when you get a notification, the only way to find the story is to do a Google search and read it somewhere else. This is a ridiculous problem that should have been fixed long ago.

    Published date: August 30, 2017

    I really dislike this app. First of all, almost every time a notification comes up for an article, the article disappears or has a different title. Also, when I click on an article notification and the dialogue box comes up, most of the time I can only dismiss them and can't actually open the article. So, I end up searching the news on Google and go to a different website. I'm going to delete and download another app. Full Review

    Kate Rose Published date: January 24, 2018

    Clicking "open" in a notification should open a story, not just the app homepage. Likewise the stories in the "More from the AP" section at the bottom of article pages regularly return a "Content can't be loaded" message. A 'just-the-facts, fast' news service is invaluable, but there's no point if users can't access the content. Full Review

    Scott Stanney Published date: October 26, 2017

    I'm not a big fan of the updated interface for the app. The old interface was easier for me to navigate. Update...I like this much better now. I hope if they do move on to a new platform that it will be available on Google since the notification right now only indicates Apple support. Full Review

    The white screen wastes energy. The video that is just raw footage should be labeled as that. You never know if the video was news or just politician sitting and pretty rooms the sounds of cameras clicking in the background, until you play it. Waste Full Review

    Ricardo Santana Published date: December 31, 2017

    Ok so you get the breaking news notification on your phone with a normal, brief description. Then you click on the story to learn more and it just takess you to a general news page. Sometimes the story isn't even there. What's the point? Full Review

    Ryan Penny Published date: December 9, 2017

    I would really love for ONE of these updates to show me the article I clicked on when I receive a notification. So frustrating to click on something and then have to look thru a list, only to be disappointed that the article is not there at all. Full Review

    Elizabeth Van Auken Published date: October 14, 2017

    Great app that's easy to navigate, and contains up to the minute articles. However, there is an issue with numerous story links that will say, "content unavailable". These specific links are always on other pages. For example, I may be reading a story, and at the bottom, it will have links to other AP news articles. But, when I click to read them, very few work. Usually, after spinning for a few, it'll come up as, "content not available". Very annoying. Full Review

    Susan 13433 Published date: September 21, 2017

    I love the fact that I can turn off photos downloading automatically, so that saves my data. But I hate, hate, hate the fact that when I open a notification for a certain news item, and I say open, 99% of the time I can no longer find it in the headlines. The notification should take me to that story! Full Review

    April Alas Chambers Published date: January 21, 2018

    Current version is not allowing me to add more local news (doesn't allow me to enter anything on the location screen), previous versions did. I liked it better when I could get all my headlines in one place. Full Review

    Thoureauly Walden Published date: October 10, 2017

    I would give this app 5 stars if it opened the story from the pop-up notification instead of just taking me to the front page of the app. Many times I've searched for a while to find the article and in quite a few cases gave up because I couldn't find it. It seems like a very obvious feature to include. Full Review

    john pardon Published date: July 27, 2017

    Lot's of over dramatic article title's. Good if you want to get entertained but not good if you just want simple news. Seems to be a problem with most american news agencies.. too bad.. Uses third party ads under their articles that look very similar to their own articles. UI is good although the large photo's and dramatic title's are very tiring.. If you like a more newspaper style of news this might be your thing. But if you only want the latest news and fast and usable.. nah.. Big part is my own preverence so just check it out for yourself.

    Tom Bryant Published date: October 29, 2017

    Update: as of June 2017, latest update has added many intrusive ads which constantly pop up & cover the bottom half of the screen. If this isn't fixed within the next couple weeks, I'll be uninstalling the app & giving negative reviews on social media. Please fix this, I want news, not commercials. Full Review

    Application continues to make a noise and send noisy notifications even after I've selected no peeking and shut off notifications for this app inside of its settings application that has a quiet. But does not follow the hours prescribed in the quiet. Full Review

    Emily Parks Published date: August 13, 2017

    Excellent app. I like that it gives the pop up notification with a brief description of the story. Only issue...When I click open to view the whole story it goes to the news listings, not the actual story. If I've waited too long to read my notifications, the story is no longer in the news feed and I can't find it to read it. Full Review

    Maylan Studart Published date: June 18, 2017

    Would give it a 5 star review if I could actually read the articles that the app breaks. Basically news breaks first in the AP app but I have to go to NY Times or WaPo or NY Post to actually read the article with the details of what happened. Must fix that. I can't find the breaking news in the app when I click on it. Full Review

    I love the ap news app with its great reporting with copius news and customizable features and timely breaking news. However, the ad with the school of fish zooming by on the bottom is very "distracting". Is there a way to remove them for enpeding in a beautiful app. Thank you Full Review

    A Google User Published date: August 31, 2017

    AP has unparalleled coverage. But there's one UX thing about this app that drives me batty: tapping a news notification doesn't take you to the story. If there's no story, don't have an "open" button. It's frustrating. Full Review

    Brandi Spayde Published date: February 6, 2018

    The app is nice with good news features. However, the news notifications of a story pop up and you click to read more, it does NOT take you to THAT need story. Just a listing of other news articles. Surely doesn't make sense to me. Make this feature work please! Full Review

    Jerry Bolt Published date: August 2, 2017

    Whenever I follow a push notification on AP mobile it does not take me to the article. Instead, it takes me to the front page and the article I was wanting to read is no where to be found. As a result I find myself using the Reuters app more. Fix this and I will gladly change my rating to 5 stars. Full Review

    On it every day several times a day. Don't miss anything with your app. Seems journalism is not biased. Until it gets political. One can see a left leaning bias from a few journalist. Not a problem because of reports are neutral. Way it should be. Full Review

    ג'ין גןלד Published date: December 30, 2017

    The reporting seems acceptable, but the application can be a nuisance. For example, if you want to quote, you will have to type it yourself because it doesn't permit copying text. Share link will not work with TinyURL because the link assumes using email out similar and contains more than just the link. Result, is that sharing particular information about articles is vastly inhibited. Unable to swipe left/right between articles, must always return to home screen. Full Review

    Notifications link to unrelated content, no content, or disappear. Too much happening in the world to deal with false alarms. Will continue using other, more reliable news sources. Few breaking stories here, any way. Redundant. Deleting. Full Review

    nicole bitner Published date: February 6, 2018

    Best news app by far. This is the source that all the other news stations cite constantly. Might as well get it straight from AP instead of the middlemen. I love the alerts and how you can click on the alert to bring you right into the story. Full Review

    Aaron Tickner Published date: August 17, 2017

    If there is "no content available", then why post a headline link? Totally irritating to see a headline of interest, hit the link, and see a blank page entitled "Content not available". So until you fix it, "Positive review not available". Full Review

    I must say AP app is a brilliant app. Your news is very broad based so it helps me to discover a wide range of topics and read them with great enthusiasm. Since installing AP app I have stuck to read only from this app and nothing else. Full Review
