  1. story change between iPhone and laptops or computers

    iPhone stories rotate out slowly as apposed to laptops or computers. Why can’t the stories change at the same rate? The technology is there. Please fix it.

  2. 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

  3. Stop playing videos

    I would rather prefer to choose to play videos or not myself. Stop using up my data up please. If I want to watch video I’ll go over to YouTube. Here’s an example. I’ll be playing music from my device while using your app and it shuts down just so I can watch a video that I don’t want to see

  6. It’s been a 2 month bug now

    I’m using iPhone 7 latest IOS. To often I’ll see a interesting story and I’ll tap it page will flash and a entirely different News story will load. Then when I try again the article would disappear completely. After about 2 hour it will pop up again. That’s been going on since you decided to play unwanted videos

  7. 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.

  8. Comments on news stories

    I am surprised violence has not erupted in reading the comments on news articles, name calling etc. seems the liberal crowd thinks it is OK since they hide at home behind a key board, just read about the mud slides in CA, a young mother added to the list of those found dead, seems some feel justified in blaming it on illegal aliens (that is what they are they are not undocumented immigrants), on Trump, one said good riddance, but what can we expect by Yahoo who spew’s hate & division, you people are in the same boat with the…

  9. 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.

    Go back to the old format but give readers the opportunity to opt out of articles that they have no interest in or offend them

  13. 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?!

  14. Message Board censorship or bug?

    I think there is either a major bug in the software you guys use or yahoo is going overboard with their censorship of what is allowed in a person’s comments. I used to regularly post comments or replies to news stories but, nowadays, they no longer show up. And, no, I am not cursing or saying anything majorly offensive to anyone. Just posting my thoughts on things which sometimes conflict with others points of view. I have also seen words like ”****” get blocked out. I mean, come on, Seriously? You guys surely can’t think that’s a bad word. Can…

  15. Mute

    I like the “Newsroom” feature, but it needs a way to mute the music.

  17. Who selects your articles for publication?!

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

  18. Why can’t Yahoo add a country of origin flag icon to identify where every post is TRULY originating from? No Russian Trolls!

    Yahoo should have the sophistication by now to indicate which country a post is originating from and to provide all subsequent commenters information about in which nation that commenter resides. The Newsroom is teeming with Russian Trolls inciting division amongst US citizens. It is Yahoo’s obligation to stop this insidious form of foreign propaganda from taking over your application. Yahoo has been hacked by the Russians and others and now you are letting them take over your Newsroom application to further their anti-US propaganda right under your nose using your own technology. Why does Yahoo stand idly by and lets…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
