  1. Inappropriate ads

    Some of the pics in your "sponsored" ads are inappropriate or downright disturbing. I keep using the drop menu and flagging them, but they keep coming up.

  3. Where's the news?

    What happened to the news? Now anyone can post anything and it looks like I'm scrolling a Facebook page. No thanks.

  4. Icon badges

    I'm deleting your news app because I can't disable the new feature of showing icon badges on the app icon, and on the folder the app is in when not open. I hate those. I don't want to have to go in and delete them several times a day. And I'm too OCD to just ignore them

  6. Need a Widget to come back

    I love Yahoo News, however, on my Android I use Google News because they have a Widget. With the Widget, I can see what's important to me RIGHT THERE ON THE SCREEN! Because you all don't have a Widget, I have to be plagued by a million notifications or miss news because I can realisticly only check it once a day. PLEASE MAKE A WIDGET FOR YOUR NEWSROOM APP!!!

  7. Videos

    When an article cites a video, you should show the video! The whole article describes the videos but you get to the bottom of the article and there's no video, no link to a video, not even pictures! Then I have to Google the video. Why not skip the middle man? I used to love Yahoo news. But Google is coming around. Yahoo just doesn't seem to have their **** together anymore. It's really disappointing.

  9. Please bring back News Digest

    News Digest was a really good service for time-constrained people. It gave you top news in an easy format. Newsroom is nowhere near as useful and I plan to delete it, whereas I used News Digest religiously every day.

  10. Be less slanted views on negativity regarding OUR PRESIDENT

    Fair and factual news not on rummers and anonymous reports.

    If it is opinions have it so noted and also have both sides of the thoughts represented.

    Thanks for the opportunity to view my opin.

  11. Cannot reply to a person's individual post

    I initially responded to someone and days later, go back to it from my history and am unable to repost a response. Instead, it continues to say posting... for every and not so anything. One time it even decided to put the post on the main topic instead of as a reply to the user.

  13. More content less drivel

    How about more photos to start. In general I don't understand the decision to provide less content in each story and add a section for reactionary drivel. It takes away from the product overall. I will look for other options definitely. You should add more photos as well. The visuals provided in the previous app enhanced the story.

  14. Active background

    Not a fan of the moving photo. Kind of disorienting and a distraction. Cool for a second or two and then the novelty wears off immediately.

  16. forces a refresh.

    Please stop forcing automatic page refresh it's very annoying to be scrolling through the available articles and then the page forces a refresh and you have to start from the top again. Also if you read an article along with the comments it will force a re- fresh when you go back to the main page.

  18. Newsfeed refresh

    It would be great if my feed didn't refresh every few seconds so that I could actually scroll through the stories to find one I am interested in. I almost want to find a new news app as this is beyond annoying

  19. Comment Section

    Wow Yahoo it looks like you have a big problem and I thought it was just me. Here we go again. When someone comments on a post I made I go to see their reply or what I posted. Then it takes me to a basically blank screen. I am unable to see anything at all. It's not the end of the world, just frustrating because the purpose for the notifications section is to actually see notifications. I actually like the app, but would like it better if it actually did what is intended to do. PLEASE FIX.
