  1. 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. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?!

  6. New format

    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

  8. Mute

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

  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. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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!!

  16. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
