  1. Get rid of the comments section for each story. People are vile and disruptive in most replies.

    Get rid of the comments section for each story. People are vile and disruptive in most replies. I want to read the news, not what a bunch of racist, sexist, politically incorrect morons have to say.

  2. The ad took the whole screen and I was effectively stuck

    The ad took the whole screen and I was effectively stuck. It was an Walmart ad and I was reading an Ask Amy article.

  3. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Please make iOS notification permanent until purposefully cleared, not just when followed to the app.

    Please make iOS notifications permanent until purposefully cleared. Right now the notification disappears when the link is followed to the app. The app is buggy and following a link does not always result in finding the posting, most times it is blank. Leaving the notification in place allows responding later when the app us working correctly.

  7. 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.
