  1. Oops something went wrong

    Why does this continue to happen - particularly for a comment that garners a lot of replies and votes?

    Hi Robert,

    Thanks for your post!

    Any additional info would be helpful for us.

    Thank you!

  2. Yahoo News article

    “SC restaurant manager pleads guiltily to enslaving disabled black worker”
    Please explain why race was part of the article? Other than to stir **** up, it was an employee, period, the manager was wrong and needs held accountable for his crime

  3. The new update is ****. Instead of reading the story it gives a video you have to scroll through Snapchat style and it doesn't even work.

    The new update is ****. Instead of reading the story it gives a video you have to scroll through Snapchat style and it doesn't even work. When you attempt to turn up volume it keeps going back and forth on next story. Bad idea and even worse implementation

  5. Too many video articles!!!

    Not a fan of all the videos for news articles as well as the ones you have to scroll through with all the music that needs to be turned down.

  6. Articles lost while viewing when stories are updated

    This has happened many times. I see an article that peaks my interest. I open said article. Before I get into it your whole system reloads the new stories for the day and replaces / removes the article I was interested in with another. Then I have to scour your feed to try and find the original article. You need to fix this. As a media supplier you should be more dillegent with allowing your readers to keep the article they have open until they close the story and not interrupt it mid stream while the person is reading it.

  8. Opt out of ANYTHING with a Kardashian in it.

    Please, please provide an option to opt-out of ANYTHING that has the name “Kardashian” in it. We are sick and tired of these days obnoxious publicity hounds. I know this is like asking to opt out from advertising because those stories are paid to be run by their mother or their other LA publicists, but I can dream, can’t I?!

  9. Who selects your articles for publication?!

    “MSNBC reports on meltdown in White House”. MSNBC is your trusted source?! Your liberal bias is nauseating

  10. Compact view with smaller images

    Would be nice if there is an option to make the news feed more compact—maybe make the images smaller and on the side, so I can see more items at a glance without scrolling.

  11. Flexible news page for flexible text size

    Your response to the “Font size” suggestion about changing font size in Settings has no effect on the news page—the text size remains the same. I am using iOS 11.1.2. However, I am able to use fingers to expand (like zoom-in) this Feedback Forum page and increase the text size. Please make news pages “zoomable” as well.

  12. iphone x

    The iPhone X has been released for almost a month now, and neither the Yahoo Newsroom app, nor the Yahoo Sports app have been updated. I used to use the Yahoo Newsroom app daily, however I have looked for alternatives now since the apps look hideous on the X. I have used the Yahoo Sports app since before it was purchased by Yahoo, as Sportacular, however now again I have had to download alternative apps because it has not been updated to the X. Please rush this update!!

  13. Please Redo UI

    The old version was intuitive though not very flexible. Regardless, I LOVED the old app and used it EVERY day. I like the idea behind some of the new features, but the new UI is completely unintuitive. As a result, the new app rarely behaves the way I expect an iOS app should. Please include gestural navigation and give more feedback to the user on where they are in their Feed, or Vibe. Can you please change the name Vibe to something less intentionally hip? When I want to share a news article, the pre-formatted text to non Yahoo users…

  15. Previews don't open in app

    Notifications show on iOS but clicking on them only successfully opens app about 3% of the time to respond to post. Posting from PC almost always the same percent unsuccessful. Uninstalling does not fix Logging out does not fix. Going directly to app does not allow me to see what us trending.

  16. Please be a newsroom

    Vibes appeared to be curated by laypeople such as "Danny boy". That's why I unfollowed all of them, including my own. Please be a Newsroom! With professional journalists, who curate and report the news.

  20. Where are the news from India? I find only news outside from India but not from India.
