How can I limit the amount of notifications per day? Say, like 5 news notifications per day max
Just don’t want more than five notifications a day
You can customize the category of notifications you receive by going to Account -> Setting -> Manage Alerts.
Hope this helps!
Why is there no longer a section of the news feed devoted to politics? With the upcoming midterm elections, this section is vital.
Voters need to be informed about politics. Removing the politics section from the news feed is a grave mistake.Responded · AdminProduct Support (Admin, Yahoo) responded
Thank you for your submission. You can tap the "Feed management" button on the top right and you will be able to add "Politics" or any topics of your choice to the main stream.
Please for the love of everything, move the icons at the bottom of the screen (profile icon, home icon, share button, etc ) away from the bottom of the screen where the iOS task switcher bar lies. It’s far too easy to miss the little yahoo icons and hit the task switcher instead. I wish I could send a photo screenshot along with this to show how frustrating this app can be when trying to use the share button for example.
Thank you for the feedback! We will consider incorporating this in future releases.

Star Not working
I tried to star certain categories so that they show up in my feed but wasn’t able to star mark even after multiple attempts. Please fix.

Please Allow Me to Adjust Size of Text
I can no longer adjust the size of the text. Please restore this feature— it’s a godsend for those of us with vision issues.
