Better than Microsoft News app

Live tile only does one headline and half the time displays an empty grey background with a small AP logo in it. Other than that good.

great news source, app could be better

AP is an excellent news source, and for me that's the most compelling thing about this app. The app serves it's purpose of delivering the news articles, but could use some design improvement. It doesn't have the newer "universal app" design that I've grown accustomed to on my Windows 10 Mobile OS, and which I find much better than the older Windows Phone format. The live tile is annoying because it alternately displays a headline & picture, and then just the AP logo & app name. The logo side of the tile is worthless, and I find myself impatiently waiting for it to "flip" and display the headline. Also, I'm not sure if breaking news alerts are supported in this version (they were in the past) b/c I haven't received any, and can't find anything in the settings about it.

Lousy sop. AP censors and directs content. You start reading an article and the a popup comes up and says article is not for this location. Makes you wonder how and who determines where content goes and to who. Uninstalling propaganda app.

Good News, and I like the white text on black background because it doesn't glare at night. It will download the news and then you can read without a connection (airplane). It requires customization to show the news categories you want to see which takes a while, but the application crashes and resets often and then you are forced to spend time re-entering all your preferences each time. Not stable. Also after reading a story, if you return to the menu to select another story, you are always taken to the top story. The MSN app does it right, returning you to the same place in the story menu. There are small relatively unobtrusive advertisements at the bottom of the screen. Lots of potential, but basic problems need to be addressed. I am through with this AP news app.

Nicely designed app. Very customizable. I especially like being able to set it up for quick access to news categories that are of most interest to me. Also like that it has a local news feed for my relatively small media market.

BNS error: the action is disabled on startup. It is rather annoying when users have to hit close to continue using the app.

A recent update broke this application. Now it crash everytime after I confirm that I'm ok to share my location.

Decent. No wide tile. 220mb current size - needs clear cache. Why two apps in store?; clean it up.

Nice customizable news list. Going back to list after looking at article goes back to top of list though. Quite annoying.

Love the news, the UI is very frustrating. -I don't need to be told every time I own the app that I disabled background execution... -the settings are useless... Sometimes they don't save, sometimes they do... But it never renders correctly. -I don't want to go to the top of the news list every time I exit a story... Scroll scroll scroll... -what good is it to have alerts in the app if pressing the alert does nothing and you can't see the story anywhere???
