The stories are up to date but the site is ALWAYS crashing! I am removing the app from my iPad. Just as you are about to read a story it crashes. Very frustrating!
Yahoo app has all info I need
by THE BEST ONE on 2015/07/30 06:01
Love the Yahoo app. Whenever I have downtime I just open it and am kept current on all relevant info I need from News, Entertainment, Katie Couric and more. It's so intuitive and easy.
Well rounded application
by Blaisedahl on 2015/07/30 02:42
Very smooth, sleek, great "fung shwei" I like it
No Yahoo groups
by Rocketmaker on 2015/07/29 15:24
Yahoo is trying but this app is not ready for most of us. I wanted to see yahoo groups and all this app wants to do is news in some form or another. The search is difficult to find making it difficult to navigate. Too bad.
Great App!
by mac7437 on 2015/07/29 03:15
It's quick and easy with a large data base of information of all types of news from around the world that does not single out just one thing!
Good App for staying current on news
by Traveler1491 on 2015/07/28 01:29
Works well and like the news updates. Ads are a bit annoying but can't complain with a free app.
My favorite information App!
by Siris123 on 2015/07/27 16:35
Fast & efficient, and I love that I can scroll through the headers/categories: Science, finance etc. and there is little to no overlap in the articles.
New format
by Boots169 on 2015/07/27 12:03
It would be nice if I could have stories blocked. I.e. Anything that has to do with the kardashians or Bruce Jenner or whatever that thing is.
Slanted "News Source"
by Bree712 on 2015/07/27 07:14
Absolutely disgusted with this app and Yahoo as a whole. Used it for many years and recently began paying attention to some of the comments on political articles. I started to notice the only comments allowed are the far right wing tea party comments. I posted several comments that "went against the grain" but were not radical or disrespectful in any way. My comments were promptly removed or "hidden" by yahoo and I was even locked out of my yahoo account on two occasions! I received email notifications saying my comments about Caitlyn Jenner had been "hidden" for low ratings by other users. I am very pro LGBT rights for the record. Yahoo has obviously forgotten about the right to freedom of speech and the have taken censoring to a whole new level! Do not use this app if you support gay rights, democratic ideals, or Hillary Clinton!
Lots of issues
by Aj66602 on 2015/07/27 04:02
The app generally works well and matches the normal full site most of the time. However there is a very annoying and consistent problem where the content for the story does not show up. You will frequently click to watch a video or see pictures for a story but the content is not there. There is a short description and nothing else, almost as if the source material was not properly linked. Very annoying.
Good, simple interface.
by Theclown12 on 2015/07/26 18:56
Easy to navigate.
Decent News Source..
by 61Espo on 2015/07/26 14:51
Yahoo needs to focus on solid news stories and less on garbage like the Kardashians and that thing they call Caitlyn....
Crashes all the time

Too Left Winged
by rayktay on 2015/07/26 02:10
If you want to know what Bruce Jenner ate today it's great. If you're looking for real, even kilter news it would be best to look elsewhere.

Just deleted it after many years.
by Orange County,CA on 2015/07/23 18:15
Finally deleted this app after many years. Too many sponsored stories now that bait you in. Once in one if these sponsored stories it takes skillful navigation to get around all the slick chicanery they use to click on a sponsor's ad. I understand the need for advertising and Yahoo can't give everything away for free but enough was finally enough. The site is now cluttered and useless. Try a different news site. Sorry Yahoo, I tried to keep liking you.
Great news app
by Aqwr on 2015/07/23 15:38
This is a great app for news, and random things that are fun to read about.
Well designed, fast, with good stories, but...
by PerkyMcSkittles on 2015/07/23 03:32
The ads. I understand that they need to monetize the app, but the ads blend in too well, and are too frequent. The second story in a list category is an ad, then every four headlines there is one. And the ad looks identical to a regular news headline. Like one I got under news was something like 'do you love your dog?' And I was like yeah of course, click, and it was an add for a flea product. I feel the ads need to either stand out more, be less frequent or just not be there. Granted the last one is unlikely to happen, but I would do an In app purchase to get rid of the ads. They really are horrible.

Too many ads. Don't waste your time.
by Brett notFavre on 2015/07/22 15:22
You are better off just using a browser and bookmarking the webpage. This app has way too many repetitious "sponsored stories" (fake stories/ads) that never phase out. Don't waste your phone memory.

Horrible ad fest
by JaredTheGamer on 2015/07/18 23:53
Get this app if you'd prefer to spend more time avoiding and closing ads instead of actually reading the news. All this app does is point the user to sites that bombard the visitor with ads. Deleted 10 minutes after downloading it.

by Anotherposter on 2015/07/18 21:24
I Tried hard to like this app but every other story is either "sponsored" or a video story with adds before the story. Just gets worse and worse. I understand the need for revenue but this is just too much. Finally deleted it.
Great app, fast news
by Jonny1208 on 2015/07/16 18:38
This is my new go-to app for interesting articles and news. Love the customization of tabs and the seamless scrolling. Articles load super fast with high quality graphics. Go Yahoo for revitalizing their business model.

Worst app I've yet to experience.
by Bel0119 on 2015/07/15 09:41
Articles do not load accordingly. Too many repeat articles that are worthless. Too slow of a response time. Very disappointing.
Great Foundation, Ripe for Improvement
by cliros on 2015/07/14 22:11
I love the overall app framework, content-wise the app leaves something to be desired. Articles are grossly regurgitated as "new articles" for weeks if not months. Videos are referenced but often within the article no links are available. "Sponsored" content is absolutely horrible...whoever sponsors this content hopefully knows that no one reads it, certainly not their ads, due to the horrible quality of the content.
Repeats headlines
by Timd2077 on 2015/07/14 02:56
The only complaint is that the same story shows up in the news feed multiple times.
Great app!
by Segedu1 on 2015/07/13 23:52
My daily source of personalized and constantly updated news. Love this app.
Convenient and easy
by Scottman9899 on 2015/07/13 16:11
Really like how the news stories can be scrolled. It's convenient to use because it's not cumbersome like a browser.
Amazing app!
by mannycharlot on 2015/07/13 15:50
I love the font and diversity of articles. The commenting is seamless.. Also, this would be the best news app to date if I was allowed to rate the articles.

Answers Integration
by Nick Hemann on 2015/07/11 06:47
In my opinion this app needs a better integration for answers. I don't like how it takes me to a webpage. I don't get notifications when one of my questions has been answered. Either better integration or yahoo should create an answers app separately. Overall this is a wonderful app though.

Annoying
by Doc09736 on 2015/07/03 18:54
This app uses articles from other sources but do not provide pictures that make you want to read the article in the first place. I never write reviews, but this one is so annoying that I have to let it be known.

Misleading Article Titles for Clickbait
by dpak379 on 2015/07/03 18:05
The Yahoo app at first seems like a quality app. However, the articles consistently have missing content such as no pictures and links that the original article would have. At the very least, Yahoo should have a link to the original article. Besides the missing content, Yahoo consistently misleads readers with inaccurate titles for the sole purpose of trying to make you click on the article. Yes- every click generates money for Yahoo.
Laughable
by Dgjbfibbddf on 2015/07/01 12:20
This app is the most biased, one sided liberal propaganda news outlet I have ever seen. It is laughable how terrible and unprofessional yahoo writers are. If you want one sided opinion stories, then this piece of crap app is for you. If you want actual news written by professionals (which is hard to come by) then do not get this app. Yahoo is terrible at providing the news.
I've seen enough...
by Jkevr on 2015/07/01 02:21
This app would pair nicely with the MSNBC app I'm thinking. There's most assuredly an agenda. It's extremely slanted left, condescending and misinforming its readers with superficial, tabloid inspired so called news articles...and obsessed with the likes of kardashian comings and goings of every sort. Anyone who considers this a legitimate news source is the same sort who gathers their opinions at the supermarket checkout. Just a quick example... Donald Trump, whom I've never admired, makes a statement railing about undocumented illegal aliens pouring across the border, some bringing crime, and the entirety putting a strain on limited resources. This so called news outlet, Yahoo...frames the stance of Trump as being "anti immigrant." Meanwhile, the reality is, the man made no mention of circumventing the legal entry of immigrants, but Yahoo speaks in no other terms other than him hating Mexicans as a whole and the whole world should turn on him at their urging. I'd recommend this app for people who make a habit of allowing their opinions to be formed for them. I'm deleting this worthless app but felt it imperative to stop by this review board to take the opportunity to say I'm not falling for the agenda they're peddling...

Good app with one annoying issue
by Big Money Wells on 2015/06/10 00:41
Yahoo is easily my number one go-to news app. But let's be frank. Part of the reason I use it so much is to read the comments section. I hate the way the comments piece work on the mobile app. It gives users the ability to post comments (some articles restricted), but I have no way to go back and see if I received thumbs up or replies to my comments. Please fix this one issue YAHOO. Make the app allow me to view my historical comments and post replies when I receive replies from other users. I've also noticed that some articles enable comments on my Mac but are locked out on the mobile App. Just an observation
New layout stinks
by Ryanmel13 on 2015/06/09 20:19
I used to love your app, not so much anymore. Your new layout stinks. Categories are hard to get to and stories aren't easy either. Your app in general used to be so much more navigable.

I had thought it was good at first , until I kept seeing the same news I had seen the past 3 days ago. There is not one say you won't see something about "THE KARDASHIANS" it's like the people at yahoo are obsessed with them, you won't go 5 seconds scrolling without seeing something about them. It's so annoying, and I really wish they would post new articles.

by It's Beer:30 on 2015/06/02 14:31
While I enjoy using Yahoo from my desktop computer, this mobile app leaves a lot to be desired. I don't mind seeing advertising on a site. I understand that revenue is necessary to make these companies profitable. However, the sheer number of pop up ads and "sponsered links"(ADVERTISEMENTS) on this mobile app makes it almost unusable.
Overall good experience
by AshleyJ128 on 2015/05/31 04:40
Please STOP sending political "breaking news" notifications to my phone! That is NOT breaking news. Also please have someone quality check the articles you are linking out to. I am talking simple grammar and spelling checks. Headlines with incorrect grammar makes you lose credibility

messed up the 1 thing I downloaded it for
by Abbysm7777 on 2015/05/25 23:51
I just wanted to ask a question on yahoo answers, so I downloaded this app. I typed out my question and the description and then tried to add a photo. It took me back to the menu and didn't even save the question! I tried both photo options, but it did the same thing. Yahoo is a big enough business to have NO excuse for this crap. A ton of people use yahoo answers, and this is absolutely unacceptable. I don't even want to find out what else doesn't work in this app.
Too much censorship
by nickname please on 2015/05/24 17:15
I've been using yahoo for awhile now. I like their search engine better than googles and I use their email service. Both are just fine. The news app however is another story. First off the stories are incomplete a good amount of the time. (I guess they don't load right). Second thing that has me irate is they censor comments that don't even have curse words in them. I understand they are trying to weed out trolls but they go overboard. They have deleted comments where I said the word "crap". Thanks but no thanks yahoo.
Useless After it updated

Calendar function is sooooo frustrating!!!!!
by balesk on 2010/01/24 21:43
I am a very devoted Yahoo! user. I love my tool bar, email, contacts list the full screen web browser version of Yahoo's calendar and alerts. I was hoping to use the Yahoo! iPhone app for my calendar so that I would have access to it both on my desktop and iPhone. Yes, I can access my calendar events on my iPhone, but I don't understand why there is no full month view?! If I want to add or view an event several months in the future, I have to move forward from today to that moment, but WEEK BY WEEK. So I have to wait for each week to load before I can move forward to the next week, and so on and so on. This is soooooo slow and frustrating. I realize that this is a free app. I realize that it is a mobile app. But, Yahoo!, please, please consider adding the FULL MONTH VIEW (a calendar page where you can see the number of each day of the month and move quickly from month to month)to your mobile app so your loyal followers aren't forced to look to other providers. Otherwise, the app is great.

Want to be able to quickly email news stories
by Scottie Karate on 2009/09/26 04:10
I generally really like this app. I use it everyday and is the second app I check after Facebook. I use it most for browsing news stories and checking my "my yahoo" page. My only gripe is occassionally I'll come across a news article that I want to email or share, but ther is no easy way of doing that from within the app without having to launch the safari link, copy the link and then launching either Email, Mesages or other app and pasting it into there before sending.. It would be great if at the end of articles there would be a share or email button that would launch the Messages or Email app and would automatically paste the article's title in the subject line and link in the body. Other apps have this option (ei. New York Times app). I couldn't find a way to easily notify Yahoo! Of this omission/suggestion, so I hope someone from Yahoo!'s app development is reading this.
Why Safari?

I thought this free app was a home run, until it started telling me I had to view my Yahoo Mail in Safari instead of just displaying it right in the app itself. Why 'fix' it if it wasn't broken? I thought it was a glitch- until I downloaded the updated version and discovered it still does this same stupid trick! It takes nearly 3 times as long (depending on your connection) to launch Safari to view my mail. If I wanted that, I would have used Safari in the first place and just ignored this app. And I don't like the new formatting for the Safari version of Yahoo Mail anyway. Yahoo needs to rectify this soon by reverting to "Mail within the App"; otherwise I'll delete this app and go back to Google mail. I can't imagine ANY Yahoo Mail user- hardcore or casual user- that is happy with this "fix". Pay attention to the desires of your users, Yahoo!
Decent app but so many annoying problems
by Skye Lars on 2014/11/27 19:52
I use this app daily to get a summary of news information. Unfortunately, the functionality has degraded over time and there are many problems. The news articles are not always the most recent, but rather repeated article from the day before even if I have read them. Sometimes the same set of news posts get recycled mutiple times per day. I also notice that posts accessed on my iPad do not render completely. Sometimes they come up blank or display an "Oops" message saying the page is missing. Other times, the news item displays and then part of it dissappears, or a section is missing at the end. It's easy enough to shutdown the app in iOS and reopen the post to get the full article, but what a lame way for an app to work! Another problem is that news items refer to a list that is not included so you figure it got mangled somehow. The feedback on types of news to include or block does no good at all. You get what Yahoo wants you to see... Everything.
Excellent

Read the title. Read it out loud. With some energy now. That's what this app is. For the reveiwer that gave a 1-star review because they couldn't see their msn contacts, WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?!?!?! You can't give a 1-star review because an app doesn't have a feature it didn't mention in the description! At least give four stars! (and besides, they're two different companies) Worry about more significant stuff, like the speed of the mail part, which is why I gave four stars. Yahoo!, please speed that up a bit. It's inconvenient and slow to close the app, search through nine pages of apps for "Mail," and then open it up on an Edge connection. Until you do that, I'm keeping this review at four stars. Also, please make the news part openable within the app rather than requiring a new page in Safari, which is annoying, and takes away from the blazing fast speed of this app.
Great App - needs some help though
by theedge103 on 2013/08/05 13:46
Maybe it's because I am a product manager and can be picky about certain products but this app seems like it needs some finishing touches. Many claim they hate the scrolling to a next story feature, I like it but it could use a settings menu to adjust sensitivity or disable for those who do not like it. I imagine there is some Summly tech in there but that program was not quite polished even though it was good. Some times the title of the story does not match the content and the main thing that bugs me about this app is that other stories require a click on the story then a click on the next screen to take you to the story, why can't you figure out how to skip the interim screen? Finally, when you have a story based around a photo, most of the time the photo is cropped where the story focus is not seen or worse no photo is part of the story at all. It is similar on video, give me the option to turn video stories off, I would rather read than get a video version of the story. That said, I enjoy the app, it is on the first screen of my iPhone and I use it ahead of apps like Flipboard. Yahoo is working in the right direction for mobile (go invest! :) ) with the latest Fantasy Football, Weather and Flickr apps and should not be discounted from other giants like Facebook and Google. Also, please make an iPad version!
Horrible application changes
by mikobsmith on 2012/08/16 22:23
This application was so much better when all it let you do was check your email. Now there's nothing but garbage on it, and there are constantly bugs. I've had to redownload this app about seven time. It's constantly signing you out, and about every third email you try to respond to or send you get an error message saying cannot complete go to your outbox we need to prove your human being, then you have to enter chain of letters and numbers in order for the program to verify you're a human being. Sometimes you have to do this over and over and over before it will finally let you send the email. Occasionally, I've lost the email. They need to stop that process. It's supposed to cut down on spam, all it does is frustrate the real user. When you're sending an email to one of the your contacts, it's not spam, and when you reply to an email, it's not spam, so why are they trying to make you "verify you're a human being". I still get about 10 spam a day. Old program was much better.
No Go
by AmyRDB on 2014/02/02 22:05
I skimmed, barely, 3 articles. Doesn't sound fair, does it...for me to dismiss Yahoo as "Not For THIS Awesome Lady," on so little research? When you've lived THIS long, & read leftist crap (that IS my being polite) in print the last 30 years, another's view "too far left" is easily believable. Today's popularized take on what USED to be news, is an insult to my intelligence & a disservice to our youth-who are capable enough to develop sound views without your constantly pervading opinions. The only thing wrong with today's youth are the crazy opinions they develop by sometimes believing your insanely inadequate rhetoric presented as fact. And them you dare call ME rigid and old-fashioned. May God bless the generations left with our political mess. BTW, NO ONE could have settled our country down and appropriately guided all of us to focus on our routines AND each OTHER HALF as effectively as our "bumbling" then-President GWBush. He has yet to be credited for the modeling of honesty, grace and hope that had yet to be witnessed since Abraham Lincoln. Just try. I won't be reading it anyway. Amy Bethel
Pleasantly Surprised!
by daniel.jacob on 2009/04/10 00:09
After using the crappy Yahoo! oneConnect app on my iPhone, I was skeptical about the new Yahoo! app. After using this new app, I am bidding farewell to both the Google and oneConnect apps. The new app is very clean and easy to navigate. The new theme for Yahoo! seems to be synergy, and from what I can see, they have a very good start. In particular, the "My Interests" tab is very cool. I am also very pleased with the apps integration of Yahoo! Calender and Mail. I like the integration of Facebook, Myspace, etc, but for the time being, status and photo updates are the only thing you can view; hopefully with time that will change. Yahoo! oneSearch is okay, but not anything like Google Search. All-in-All, I think Yahoo has done a great job with their new app, and I hope newer/better upgrades are in its future.
So confusing and horrible
by jonathan. on 2010/02/27 03:31
This app is horrible. There are so many tabs of nonsense. One tab has features that take you to websites within the app. Other links force you to open in Safari and quit the app. You can link to things like Facebook and Twitter but it doesn't do much. There are two tabs of news. There is no way to add your Yahoo bookmarks to this app anywhere, you have to type them all over again. Um...why? This app is a disaster. At least allow syncing with my Yahoo bookmarks. As of now it's just a lot of news and other features that make little sense. Will this take me to Facebook? Will this open within the app or ask me to close and go to Safari? Who knows, it's multiple tabs of confusion. Some things open in the app, most other things make you leave the app and Yahoo services like calendar and bookmarks aren't even integrated well. Go back to the drawing board. This app is the yahoo mobile website, with a lot if added bloat and mess. Horrible, horrible app.
Better Calendar feature PLEASE!
by BigLOU_77 on 2009/05/21 09:52
How a about making the calendar more mobile friendly for a change!!! I'll tell you, one of the worst things to want on the iPhone is a decent calendar. No app has done it right yet. I like to use my Yahoo! calaendar and was hoping that this app would eventually make the online version more functional for a mobile application. I don't expect alot out of web-site calendars. They don't need to be too user friendly for up-to-the-minute changes. But it would be nice for yahoo to make one. And it comes so close. Why no monthly view? How about a boxed calendar view? Up coming events reminder when the app opens? I think these are easy things to add. I'm not asking for sms or phone reminders (although it's an idea), and I know this isn't primarily a calendar app. But I think it has a long way to go to be called a good app. I could just use safari, but should I have to? I know it's free, but they can do ALOT better.
Terrible
by TDHinTPA on 2014/01/15 04:17
I downloaded this app originally several months ago, got so frustrated that I deleted it. I enjoy the stories on My Yahoo on my computer so I thought I would try installing this app again, on hopes the developers actually read the reviews and attempted to improve it. Nope, still a crappy app that doesn't work correctly. Half the time you start reading a story and touch the "continue reading" link or arrow and there is no more story! Or, you select an article to check out the picture from the "teaser" and there is no picture in the article. Also, it interrupts your reading to poll you "more articles like this"? Your only choice is yes or no. Most of the articles I just read. I don't necessarily want more of them, but I also don't want them to not show me them anymore either. Problem is, If you say "no" (don't show me more like this), it tells you it will stop showing those kind. Too many frustrating issues, gonna have to delete - AGAIN.
This app can be better
by Mr. Fader on 2014/07/11 19:02
I love the stories and news feed, it nearly the best way to get updated on all the events from sports, news, entertainment, etc. but I have so many issues with this app. 1. There's a button where you can choose to show less stories about this topic (ex. The kardashians, I could care less if they bought a new mansion, I don't want to see those stories) so I press that button, the next day, I'll get more kardashian stories. I've pressed that button for other irrelevant topics but that button never works. 2. The timeline is always weird, it constantly switches the stories around. For instance, it showed at the top that "Lebron still hasn't made the decision yet" then two stories below it, it shows "Lebron is returning to Cleveland" it's not in chronological order. I still have stories showing from last week!
Can
by mkgrandma54 on 2012/10/28 06:06
Have this problem. Went to the apple store where they downloaded a yahoo app. I did get yahoo back through the app but not safari. This worked for a little while, now my iPad is telling me that I do not have enough storage. Apparently when they put the new yahoo app on my iPad they forgot to delete my yahoo mail in safari. Now my iPad is frozen because of lack of storage. I can't get into settings, or any apps. My iPad is useless until I find out how to access my settings and delete the safari yahoo mail. Anyone know how I can do this? The message says, Not Enough Storage This iPad cannot be backed up because there is not enough iCloud storage available. You can manage your storage in settings. The problem is it will not let me select the options it is giving me. 1) close 2) go to settings. iPad is frozen and useless. Not too happy right now!!!!!!!!!
Good, but some fixes are needed
by ttzshee39 on 2014/06/23 16:04
A good app. Although the app could fix some things. Such as, when new stories appear, sometimes you can manually refresh for new news, while other times the app automatically refreshes the app for new news. I'd prefer the manually eat over automatically refreshing. Also, when reading an article, whenever I accidentally swipe to the left or right, another article appears, when I swipe back to the article I was reading, it does not return me to the part of the article I was last reading before the accidental swipe. The app could remember which part of an article you were last reading and return you to that part.
Terrible app design - no thought to how people would actually use this
by sig the nomad on 2011/10/25 14:14
I don't often spend time harping on how useless apps are, but I thought I'd spend a moment venting my frustration at the poor design of the yahoo app on the off chance a developer or someone there at yahoo will take notice. I think most people probably use this app for mail of sports. I downloaded to have access to additional Yahoo Mail features that I cannot access thought iPhones interface. So why, I ask you, would you put the "send" button at the top of the mail section, in an area that scrolls out of view as you type more info into the body of the email? Moreover, why would you have a "done" button right above that that doesn't scroll? And even if you were just trying to keep you design simple, why wouldn't you add a feature to say "are you sure you want to stop composing this message without sending it?" when someone (me) hits the "done" button when I intended to hit the "send" button - I mean they are RIGHT next to each other. I find this type of lazy design in a lot of Yahoo's products. There is a reason your stock price is dipping. Stop creating useless features no one wants and focus on producing a superior product that serves a niche clientele. And stop messing with Sportstacular - it was fine the way it was.
Needs Lots of Work
by Bboy snake dog  on 2013/06/09 07:11
I loaded this freeby for one purpose...to load my Yahoo Address Book in order to avoid the excrutiatingly slow syncing with iTunes. Y! loads only about a 10th of my 700 plus address records. It seems to choke to a stop when it reaches records that start with a numeric character...like 1Click, which is a company name. Another feature I thought would be useful is loading my Yahoo Calendar. Unfortunately, the best it can do is one week at a time...in sequence. So to check my calendar for December, I need to advance more than 26 weeks...one week at a time. And the touch point to do that one-week advance is not very good...requing multiple touches to get the calendar to advance one week. Y! would certainly fill a need...to sync the iPhone with Yahoo Address Book and Calendar...if it did those functions right. I'd recommend waiting until Yahoo fixes these shortfalls before bothering with this app.
Good friend for 6 years Now nightmare
by Rosie305 on 2013/04/27 17:41
About 3 months ago I could not get to my e-mail costing me thousands in my work. AT&T the joint carrier for a change was a doll but every time we changed the password changed and the log-on was acceptable we would end up at Yahoo with x message akin to I was a hacker and blocked. They never answered my calls or AT&T's for this matter and when they finally spoke to my top attorney who was handling 600 cases like mine they blamed it all on AT&T then finally admitted they were changing browsers and had some trouble. Funny thing. The new browser is Bad Bad Bad. Stay away from them. Use Google Firefox even small-time browsers you check out even MS Explorer.

What were you thinking?
by SharyLee on 2011/08/16 16:49
I could look up anything, anytime, anywhere, and now, i sit and watch the little wheel spin and spin while I wait and wait. At a dinner party with friends, I could look up information, checkout wikipedia, or get info on the latest movies. not I sit and and watch the little wheel spin and spin while I wait and wait. What was wonderful about you is now gone. I have apps that give me news, you were my link to information, to local restaurants and businesses; now I can't even access that information in any sort of timely way. I am now loking for another app that will connect me to the internet and you will be deleated from the face of my iphone. Sorry. I loved you but you changed. I hoped it was temporary, I hoped you would come back to me, but you thought you know what I wanted, when all the time I wanted what you already had. I miss you. But you will be replaced.
Update has made it slow and unusable
by JA_player on 2011/09/17 21:09
Why did they have to spoil a good app? Don't bother with the 2.0 update. it takes forever to render even the first screen! Then it is unusably slow and irresponsive. I have gone from using it everyday to not using it at all! Update: 2.0.1 is equally slow... Don't think they fixed anything. Obviously they need to get more competent developers!! Even tried uninstall and reinstall. Didn't help :( finally just deleted the app. Too bad it went from being the first app I ran everyday to being unceremoniously kicked off my device!! Update 2: It has been over a month now.... everyone is pretty much saying this is a bad update... makes it unusable... any other company would have deployed more resources to fix it asap.... and still no response from Yahoo! Yup, their team needs to be dumped and replaced. no wonder the whole company is going downhill... in a hurry!
FINALLY got email to work
by Slarty Bartfast on 2012/04/26 17:53
I got the app solely to access my Yahoo mail, and it won't let me sign in. ("Sing-In Problem"? Really, Yahoo?) Update: This app is a JOKE!! I followed their instructions for problems with signing into Mail, and deleted and then reinstalled the app. No improvement. So again I followed their instructions and used the Help icon. But when I started trying to provide them with their requested diagnostic info, THE TEXT ROLLED OUT OF VIEW AND COULDN'T BE RETRIEVED!!! You know an App has serious QC issues when even their Help screen doesn't work properly!! Update: After farting around with the app for a WHILE, I tried signing into the ACCOUNT section (off the main screen) rather than trying to sign directly into my email account. This worked, and allowed me to access my email from the main screen icon. But nowhere (that I could find) was this explained to users. Add to that the fact that an email-only sign-in screen is offered for those who just want to use the email function, but which apparently can't get you into email if you aren't already signed in at the main screen, and the app has to be considered, at the very least, confusing.
more hype than substamce
by amcsi on 2010/05/22 05:20
In typical Yahoo fashion, the first three tabs are nothing other than news, most of which are "sensational" news rather than "informative" and meaningfully accurate. The only positives about this app is the occasionally functioning IM which is cross platform and the customization features (sadly same poor quality news). There are just way too many higher quality alternatives for multi platform IM's and news feeds for this app to be useful and for everything else its a Safari pop-up window which males having this app in place of bookmarks obsolete. My review would change if Yahoo's good stuff was accessible through this app or even through Safari consistently like Fantasy sports, games, etc. especially given how easily those things could be achieved. Come on Yahoo finish what you started, make it stable and mobile friendly...

Recent update destroyed this app
by Jeffro59 on 2014/04/21 01:44
This was my goto app for news. I have several others but preferred this one unquestionably. A recent update makes it really annoying. I previously enjoyed being able to scroll through a small thumbnail photo and the headline in small text so that I could find what I wanted to read more detail on. There were about 8-10 stories on each iPhone screen page. Now, each story takes up 2/3 of an iPhone page. Which means ALOT of scrolling. Very annoying. On top of that, it seems like the same stale stories are showing up every time I check in on the app, which is 2-3 times a day. Guess I will go back to the AP News app instead. Whomever the author is should allow the end user to adjust this story preview size setting. Within a week if it's not changed I will have to delete the app. Shame.
Yahoo news isn't all news.
by Ftzwtr on 2014/09/28 22:37
Article headers are often misleading. Tapping "read more" frequently takes you nowhere. Just this morning opened an article with the heading "Football injury leads to shocking discovery". Opening that took me to an article about Halloween costumes and some other unrelated stuff I didn't read. Yahoo needs to check their work before tossing it out there. I'm also tired of seeing "10 new stories" at the top of the page, tapping only to discover 3 new stories, 2 "sponsored" ads and 5 old articles with new headlines. Just say 3 new stories please and don't eat up time and battery reposting articles I've already read. The experience would be better if, for example, the map of the Middle East could be enlarged. This is mobile, right? Nothing on the map on my screen is big enough to see so the impact is lost.
Good start
by shogut on 2009/05/02 22:47
Here's my list of wishes: - Add the features already included for contacts in OneConnect. - MyYahoo content should be based on the feeds on my "MyYahoo" page; not be a separate list. - The calendar should include shared events and have a user setting for a default view - Messenger (and the standalone program) should be able to add people from my contact list - There's some redundancy in the structure. It seems like you can access the same thing three different ways - Since there is so much content crammed into one app, it would be nice if you could turn some features off to clean up the listings if you're not going to use them. If the content was tied more to MyYahoo page (synced or at least accessible) it would help with this.
Slanted "News Source"
by Bree712 on 2015/07/27 07:14
Absolutely disgusted with this app and Yahoo as a whole. Used it for many years and recently began paying attention to some of the comments on political articles. I started to notice the only comments allowed are the far right wing tea party comments. I posted several comments that "went against the grain" but were not radical or disrespectful in any way. My comments were promptly removed or "hidden" by yahoo and I was even locked out of my yahoo account on two occasions! I received email notifications saying my comments about Caitlyn Jenner had been "hidden" for low ratings by other users. I am very pro LGBT rights for the record. Yahoo has obviously forgotten about the right to freedom of speech and the have taken censoring to a whole new level! Do not use this app if you support gay rights, democratic ideals, or Hillary Clinton!
They don't let us choose which top three we want, and zero support/feedback if you have a problem.
by pacific on 2009/06/30 03:24
There is ZERO tech support / feedback for this App. I clicked on "Yahoo Support" and it goes to a link for the regular Yahoo computer website. Nothing for the App! They need to enable in the settings for the App the ability to choose which three categories you want at the top. Right now it defaults to Business, Entertainment, and Sports. You have zero choice! Terrible! What about headline news? World news? U.S. News? Nope, nope, and nope! You have to scroll down and click on extra links to see anything else. The option for the top three needs to be in the Settings for the App. Two stars. This App was not well thought out.
App Is A Great Step 
by Cingulair on 2009/04/17 22:57
So far the layout of the App is awesome. I wouldn't have thought to  for this. I was a little worried  about Yahoo before and stuff that was in the news. This App alone has strengthened my confidence in the company. I am too over joyed . I can see a strong future because of the strong vision  that was behind this App. It just could use a few more tweaks . I was using the news feature this morning, while I was on the phone, and everything froze . I had to do a restart. Next I love the new email options that we now have . But the address book doesn't allow for editing or adding contacts. That . The address book also is sort by first, last only. No preferential choice.
Absolutely miserable
by Jaimepants on 2014/01/22 01:00
I use Yahoo for business, and I cannot fathom the amount of business I have lost because people don't get my emails. This app is stupidly confusing, (and I am an intelligent person). Every time I send someone an email, it randomly goes to the wrong person for no apparent reason. When I try to refer back to old emails that contain important addresses for job sites, it CONSTANTLY tells me "failed to download message". If I had a dollar for every time I saw that error message is would be RICH. I can't tell you how many phone calls I've gotten from brides wanting to book me for their wedding who say "I never got an email back from you." I AM LOSING BUSINESS BECAUSE OF THIS STUPID APP. I wish I could use my gmail account but my yahoo email is on my website, my business cards, my account on TheKnot, etc. Please fix this.
Good, overall. A LOT of inexperienced contributors.
by billyhill1972 on 2014/09/07 22:22
The two Biggest problems are the HUGE amount of typos, misspellings and inexperience of the writers, in general. Lately, there have been quite a bit of reporting that is completely wrong, or in some cases, contradicting itself in mid article. Secondly, MOST of the time, you cannot click through to the articles it was supposedly inspired by. Also, it would be nice to be able to reply about these inaccurately reported "facts", by your contributors that are clearly biased to one side, or the other. I love the access, I just hate to have fact check the things in some of these articles. A lot of the stories are just that, stories, NOT news articles.
Kinda useless...
by mgmros on 2013/12/13 05:30
...if the articles are incomplete. The photo on the header of the article is cool-looking, but doesn't show the whole photo which again makes the app useless. Photos paint a thousand words... so put some in the body of the article! I had to click on the "share" button, copy link, open a browser, then paste link for the complete article also to find out that there are more photos on a lot of the articles. Why can't they all be seen on the Yahoo! app? If you purposely chose to limit what is shown on the app, can you at least add a quick link to open the original article in a browser instead of copying link, opening a browser then pasting? Wait, I changed my mind. If you can't show the complete article on the app, just forget it. It's just useless at that point.
Needs work
by Unfortunate Joe on 2013/12/07 04:34
This app has gone from kind of okay to completely terrible. Now when clicking on a story and thinking you're going to get to read the whole thing, you might get a fragment of the story and then are left hanging. Not to mention if the story is in video form you might think that you're getting in entertainment story and end up watching a yahoo video on how to make a vegetable centerpiece. If you're going to claim to be an app where I can access the news, please create an app which will allow me to actually access the entire news story. Please, what you're doing is actually doing nothing more than wasting the data that I have to pay for each month. Please don't make me resent and delete you. I swear all these five-star reviews must be from the spouses of the developers.
Good, for the price...
by Jmart388 on 2014/05/01 15:02
App will get you through boring periods of times where you may find a few interesting stories to thumb through to kill some time, but hardly a "real" news app with yahoo company writers and the long incessant list of things you care nothing to read or know about. What would make this a better app, at least for me, is the option to post my unnecessary opinion about how i would live my life and how you should not be living yours (comments) in through the mobile app. So far you can only do this through desktop. You can check email, save sites and the basic. Dont expect miracles as many as us do, its a mobile app not a desktop site.
Can they ever get it right
by Campbell Runner on 2015/01/31 02:34
Sooooo frustrating. They have the format and all the content I want but it is always with bugs. Either they with spotlight a video, but they won't have access to the video when you click on the link. Then they will talk about a great picture or house on the market and have now pictures in their article. All they need is to link to the article in their stories, but it is usually only half the articles that do this. Soooo frustrating. After about 3 years of watching the interface change, I am finally forced to find another app to get my general news, sports updates and general info. Pleeeeease just finish the great products you have Yahoo instead of trying to do everything. You are so smart, yet so dumb at the same time.
Fine, but annoying
by Concerned mama on 2013/02/22 14:55
The app works fine. I pretty much use it just for mail on my iPhone. Two pet peeves, however, while using the app to check my mail I always get a screen that asks if I want the app for my iPhone. Good grief!! I'm already USING the silly thing! The second most annoying thing is this: after I've scrolled down and loaded several pages of emails to get where I need to be, once I actually read the email and go back to my inbox, it automatically takes me to the top again. If after reading the email it would go back to the same place I was, that would be so great. Fix the constant asking for something I obviously already have, beautiful!
It's a downgrade!!!

Last version worked almost perfectly after Yahoo's multiple attempts to provide a useful app for iPhone users. Email is the feature, I think, why most people still stick with this app and Yahoo service as a whole. Now it opens email in Safari with this version upgrade. Why do we still need this app then? This upgrade is a downgrade to me. Another bug with the email in the old version: if you have a folder with some emails, you can't batch edit those emails by deleting or spam them ALL together. If you do so, those emails will be deleted or spammed as you wish. But you will be stuck there with all the options grayed. You can't go back to check email in other folders or do anything with the email unless you quit, close, and relaunch the app.

It's a little bit glitchy in the fact you have to randomly completely close the app to get back into the in box from viewing certain emails. Doesn't sound that bad but when you have dozens if not hundreds of emails in your in box and your trying to view past messages it becomes a problem to have to close the app and scrowel back threw to find where you left off. Hard enough working with a small screen. Plus you can't delete messages while viewing them ?? There's an icon to click but no action. I have to push the edit button and the flip threw pages to find the one email I want to delete. Other than that its great
OK
by apevny on 2010/04/15 04:56
The app is decent with good stories, the main "Featured" page loads very slowly though even on WiFi. The most notable issue that bugs me is, why do some stories load within the app's own safari browser while some ask to open the full safari web browser? It seems to me that they should all load within the app except for videos. It's very annoying to have it open the new browser window, read the story, close the browser, and go open up the yahoo app again. I will note a few image optimizations on the "Featured" page and transitioning the stories to all open locally within the app and the star rating would easily be 4-5 stars.
If you don't need this app, DON'T GET IT!
by Lindseymnelson on 2012/07/17 15:42
I love omg! but I cannot read the full articles on some of the stories. It will not let me scroll down and sometimes I can't even scroll through pictures. Please fix bc I love the yahoo! app. I had to take away two stars bc this app is giving Yahoo, a trusted website a bad rap. Where do all my emails go that I DO NOT personally delete? Sometimes they are there, and then I go to look at them again and they are gone! Also, sometimes when I go to delete emails, it will check one I did not check and delete it. I know this bc I will check my trash and there will be a very important email in there I didn't delete. Fix this, or I will unsubscribe to yahoo and go with your competition for email!
Good app with one annoying issue
by Big Money Wells on 2015/06/10 00:41
Yahoo is easily my number one go-to news app. But let's be frank. Part of the reason I use it so much is to read the comments section. I hate the way the comments piece work on the mobile app. It gives users the ability to post comments (some articles restricted), but I have no way to go back and see if I received thumbs up or replies to my comments. Please fix this one issue YAHOO. Make the app allow me to view my historical comments and post replies when I receive replies from other users. I've also noticed that some articles enable comments on my Mac but are locked out on the mobile App. Just an observation
Frustrating at times
by Daddy Jason on 2013/06/18 14:18
I like the fact that this app has a number of news articles/headlines. What I find frustrating: When I click on the article to read it based on the headline, I'm redirected to another page that may or may not have a complete article or picture as indicated by the headline. Example: Headline, "Talk about a purr-fect mistake". After clicking on the headline I am redirected to the actual article (not a big deal) which describes a graduates funny cake where the bakery put a cat instead of a cap on her picture on the cake. There is a picture....but the cat cap is cut off and no where is there a link to the actual picture. This happens way to often....
Nothing worth reading
by tr42_0151 on 2014/04/27 03:36
I used to read yahoo news because it would Keep me up to date on current news. While I'm not saying that it still doesn't. But yahoo news has been consistently become overrun with nonsense articles about stuff that nobody would ever really care about. There's plenty of actual news out there to report without having to use these filler stories. Also you will see the same stories being recycled every 6 months or so. But my biggest complaint has got to be yahoo's biased news reports towards advancing they're liberal agenda. So be careful reading reading from this sight, you are being brainwashed into believing our current government is actually helping us. Stick to another news sight. I will now delete the yahoo app
Good, but too much in one app
by SVKinAZ on 2009/04/01 06:38
There are parts of this app that are very well done, but I don't understand Yahoo's insistence on bundling everything into one single app. I would much prefer to have separate apps for Yahoo News, Yahoo Messenger/OneConnect, Yahoo Mail & Calendar, etc. To combine them all in one makes the app a bit hard to navigate. Also, some of the better features of Yahoo OneConnect seem to be removed. Although I can aggregate almost any social network using this app, it's not as easy as Yahoo OneConnect. I have a feeling most people won't use this app simply because it includes way too much instead of just the Yahoo services they need or want.
Well designed, fast, with good stories, but...
by PerkyMcSkittles on 2015/07/23 03:32
The ads. I understand that they need to monetize the app, but the ads blend in too well, and are too frequent. The second story in a list category is an ad, then every four headlines there is one. And the ad looks identical to a regular news headline. Like one I got under news was something like 'do you love your dog?' And I was like yeah of course, click, and it was an add for a flea product. I feel the ads need to either stand out more, be less frequent or just not be there. Granted the last one is unlikely to happen, but I would do an In app purchase to get rid of the ads. They really are horrible.
Pretty good overall
by Jason Saliba on 2015/04/30 15:03
Good content. Adequate design. One really annoying thing though. I scroll through the headlines pretty quick so a lot of times I scroll a little bit too far and need to scroll back up so I can read the full headline. When I scroll back up, the top purple bar has to come out from the top of the screen before it scrolls up any. So a half centimeter thumb movement turns into an inch. This is really annoying to the point that I want to use a new app. And there's no point to it. Just keep the top purple bar there all the time. Please change it Yahoo.
Awesome
by Marrryanne on 2015/03/15 06:23
I love this app, I go here to read articles about the latest news and current events like the war on ISIL, the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, etc. many ppl would say why wouldn't you go to cnn or Fox News? It's because this app never crashes and doesn't take a long time to load up, I simply just touch the app and I'm in, cnn takes at least 5 minutes and half the time it crashes as soon as the home page appears. I definitely prefer you to download this app if you like reading

Yahoo app has all info I need

No Yahoo groups
by Rocketmaker on 2015/07/29 15:24
Yahoo is trying but this app is not ready for most of us. I wanted to see yahoo groups and all this app wants to do is news in some form or another. The search is difficult to find making it difficult to navigate. Too bad.
Great App!

It's quick and easy with a large data base of information of all types of news from around the world that does not single out just one thing!
Good App for staying current on news

Works well and like the news updates. Ads are a bit annoying but can't complain with a free app.
My favorite information App!

Fast & efficient, and I love that I can scroll through the headers/categories: Science, finance etc. and there is little to no overlap in the articles.
New format
by Boots169 on 2015/07/27 12:03
It would be nice if I could have stories blocked. I.e. Anything that has to do with the kardashians or Bruce Jenner or whatever that thing is.
Slanted "News Source"
by Bree712 on 2015/07/27 07:14
Absolutely disgusted with this app and Yahoo as a whole. Used it for many years and recently began paying attention to some of the comments on political articles. I started to notice the only comments allowed are the far right wing tea party comments. I posted several comments that "went against the grain" but were not radical or disrespectful in any way. My comments were promptly removed or "hidden" by yahoo and I was even locked out of my yahoo account on two occasions! I received email notifications saying my comments about Caitlyn Jenner had been "hidden" for low ratings by other users. I am very pro LGBT rights for the record. Yahoo has obviously forgotten about the right to freedom of speech and the have taken censoring to a whole new level! Do not use this app if you support gay rights, democratic ideals, or Hillary Clinton!
Lots of issues
by Aj66602 on 2015/07/27 04:02
The app generally works well and matches the normal full site most of the time. However there is a very annoying and consistent problem where the content for the story does not show up. You will frequently click to watch a video or see pictures for a story but the content is not there. There is a short description and nothing else, almost as if the source material was not properly linked. Very annoying.
Good, simple interface.
by Theclown12 on 2015/07/26 18:56

Decent News Source..
by 61Espo on 2015/07/26 14:51
Yahoo needs to focus on solid news stories and less on garbage like the Kardashians and that thing they call Caitlyn....

by Orange County,CA on 2015/07/23 18:15
Finally deleted this app after many years. Too many sponsored stories now that bait you in. Once in one if these sponsored stories it takes skillful navigation to get around all the slick chicanery they use to click on a sponsor's ad. I understand the need for advertising and Yahoo can't give everything away for free but enough was finally enough. The site is now cluttered and useless. Try a different news site. Sorry Yahoo, I tried to keep liking you.

Get this app if you'd prefer to spend more time avoiding and closing ads instead of actually reading the news. All this app does is point the user to sites that bombard the visitor with ads. Deleted 10 minutes after downloading it.

Great Foundation, Ripe for Improvement
by cliros on 2015/07/14 22:11
I love the overall app framework, content-wise the app leaves something to be desired. Articles are grossly regurgitated as "new articles" for weeks if not months. Videos are referenced but often within the article no links are available. "Sponsored" content is absolutely horrible...whoever sponsors this content hopefully knows that no one reads it, certainly not their ads, due to the horrible quality of the content.
Repeats headlines
by Timd2077 on 2015/07/14 02:56
The only complaint is that the same story shows up in the news feed multiple times.

In my opinion this app needs a better integration for answers. I don't like how it takes me to a webpage. I don't get notifications when one of my questions has been answered. Either better integration or yahoo should create an answers app separately. Overall this is a wonderful app though.

Misleading Article Titles for Clickbait
by dpak379 on 2015/07/03 18:05
The Yahoo app at first seems like a quality app. However, the articles consistently have missing content such as no pictures and links that the original article would have. At the very least, Yahoo should have a link to the original article. Besides the missing content, Yahoo consistently misleads readers with inaccurate titles for the sole purpose of trying to make you click on the article. Yes- every click generates money for Yahoo.
Laughable
by Dgjbfibbddf on 2015/07/01 12:20
This app is the most biased, one sided liberal propaganda news outlet I have ever seen. It is laughable how terrible and unprofessional yahoo writers are. If you want one sided opinion stories, then this piece of crap app is for you. If you want actual news written by professionals (which is hard to come by) then do not get this app. Yahoo is terrible at providing the news.
I've seen enough...
by Jkevr on 2015/07/01 02:21
This app would pair nicely with the MSNBC app I'm thinking. There's most assuredly an agenda. It's extremely slanted left, condescending and misinforming its readers with superficial, tabloid inspired so called news articles...and obsessed with the likes of kardashian comings and goings of every sort. Anyone who considers this a legitimate news source is the same sort who gathers their opinions at the supermarket checkout. Just a quick example... Donald Trump, whom I've never admired, makes a statement railing about undocumented illegal aliens pouring across the border, some bringing crime, and the entirety putting a strain on limited resources. This so called news outlet, Yahoo...frames the stance of Trump as being "anti immigrant." Meanwhile, the reality is, the man made no mention of circumventing the legal entry of immigrants, but Yahoo speaks in no other terms other than him hating Mexicans as a whole and the whole world should turn on him at their urging. I'd recommend this app for people who make a habit of allowing their opinions to be formed for them. I'm deleting this worthless app but felt it imperative to stop by this review board to take the opportunity to say I'm not falling for the agenda they're peddling...

It's a very nice site and very Helpful to have thanks very much.
Disappointed

I deleted the app as it crashes constantly, very slow BYE Yahoo!
Love it!

This is my go to for news. I don't have the patience for watching the news on tv so this is great! I can page through & find the articles that are important to me & not deal with any extra nonsense that I don't have time for.

Similar to flipboard
Same thing everyday
by Hondakid12 on 2015/06/03 16:13
I had thought it was good at first , until I kept seeing the same news I had seen the past 3 days ago. There is not one say you won't see something about "THE KARDASHIANS" it's like the people at yahoo are obsessed with them, you won't go 5 seconds scrolling without seeing something about them. It's so annoying, and I really wish they would post new articles.
Really neat App
by Danielobolo on 2015/06/03 03:22
It does what I need. News and weather. Perfect. Plus the feel of it and flow is nice. Good work Yahoo.
Ads Ads Ads
by It's Beer:30 on 2015/06/02 14:31
While I enjoy using Yahoo from my desktop computer, this mobile app leaves a lot to be desired. I don't mind seeing advertising on a site. I understand that revenue is necessary to make these companies profitable. However, the sheer number of pop up ads and "sponsered links"(ADVERTISEMENTS) on this mobile app makes it almost unusable.
Overall good experience
by AshleyJ128 on 2015/05/31 04:40
Please STOP sending political "breaking news" notifications to my phone! That is NOT breaking news. Also please have someone quality check the articles you are linking out to. I am talking simple grammar and spelling checks. Headlines with incorrect grammar makes you lose credibility
Awesome

Entertaining! Good morning coffee companion. Look elsewhere for complete and in depth coverage of important news. Close the app and go to the site for email.
User-friendly

Gorgeous and very personalized. Definitely a home run!
messed up the 1 thing I downloaded it for
by Abbysm7777 on 2015/05/25 23:51
I just wanted to ask a question on yahoo answers, so I downloaded this app. I typed out my question and the description and then tried to add a photo. It took me back to the menu and didn't even save the question! I tried both photo options, but it did the same thing. Yahoo is a big enough business to have NO excuse for this crap. A ton of people use yahoo answers, and this is absolutely unacceptable. I don't even want to find out what else doesn't work in this app.
Too much censorship
by nickname please on 2015/05/24 17:15
I've been using yahoo for awhile now. I like their search engine better than googles and I use their email service. Both are just fine. The news app however is another story. First off the stories are incomplete a good amount of the time. (I guess they don't load right). Second thing that has me irate is they censor comments that don't even have curse words in them. I understand they are trying to weed out trolls but they go overboard. They have deleted comments where I said the word "crap". Thanks but no thanks yahoo.
Useless After it updated
by Mdyhfdd on 2015/05/24 06:01
Just plain useless all around...New stories mixed with old ones, layout has several bugs, stories are not accurate and they post to many stories about celebrities!!
My first go to!

by SickVic2112 on 2015/05/22 17:26
I find it interesting and irritating that all we ever read on this app is about that stupid Duggar family and now that there is a scandal... Nothing! Annoying! You must be in their payroll

Calendar function is sooooo frustrating!!!!!
by balesk on 2010/01/24 21:43
I am a very devoted Yahoo! user. I love my tool bar, email, contacts list the full screen web browser version of Yahoo's calendar and alerts. I was hoping to use the Yahoo! iPhone app for my calendar so that I would have access to it both on my desktop and iPhone. Yes, I can access my calendar events on my iPhone, but I don't understand why there is no full month view?! If I want to add or view an event several months in the future, I have to move forward from today to that moment, but WEEK BY WEEK. So I have to wait for each week to load before I can move forward to the next week, and so on and so on. This is soooooo slow and frustrating. I realize that this is a free app. I realize that it is a mobile app. But, Yahoo!, please, please consider adding the FULL MONTH VIEW (a calendar page where you can see the number of each day of the month and move quickly from month to month)to your mobile app so your loyal followers aren't forced to look to other providers. Otherwise, the app is great.
I've seen enough...
by Jkevr on 2015/07/01 02:21
This app would pair nicely with the MSNBC app I'm thinking. There's most assuredly an agenda. It's extremely slanted left, condescending and misinforming its readers with superficial, tabloid inspired so called news articles...and obsessed with the likes of kardashian comings and goings of every sort. Anyone who considers this a legitimate news source is the same sort who gathers their opinions at the supermarket checkout. Just a quick example... Donald Trump, whom I've never admired, makes a statement railing about undocumented illegal aliens pouring across the border, some bringing crime, and the entirety putting a strain on limited resources. This so called news outlet, Yahoo...frames the stance of Trump as being "anti immigrant." Meanwhile, the reality is, the man made no mention of circumventing the legal entry of immigrants, but Yahoo speaks in no other terms other than him hating Mexicans as a whole and the whole world should turn on him at their urging. I'd recommend this app for people who make a habit of allowing their opinions to be formed for them. I'm deleting this worthless app but felt it imperative to stop by this review board to take the opportunity to say I'm not falling for the agenda they're peddling...
Want to be able to quickly email news stories
by Scottie Karate on 2009/09/26 04:10
I generally really like this app. I use it everyday and is the second app I check after Facebook. I use it most for browsing news stories and checking my "my yahoo" page. My only gripe is occassionally I'll come across a news article that I want to email or share, but ther is no easy way of doing that from within the app without having to launch the safari link, copy the link and then launching either Email, Mesages or other app and pasting it into there before sending.. It would be great if at the end of articles there would be a share or email button that would launch the Messages or Email app and would automatically paste the article's title in the subject line and link in the body. Other apps have this option (ei. New York Times app). I couldn't find a way to easily notify Yahoo! Of this omission/suggestion, so I hope someone from Yahoo!'s app development is reading this.
Why Safari?
by tsmelker65 on 2009/06/09 01:10
I thought this free app was a home run, until it started telling me I had to view my Yahoo Mail in Safari instead of just displaying it right in the app itself. Why 'fix' it if it wasn't broken? I thought it was a glitch- until I downloaded the updated version and discovered it still does this same stupid trick! It takes nearly 3 times as long (depending on your connection) to launch Safari to view my mail. If I wanted that, I would have used Safari in the first place and just ignored this app. And I don't like the new formatting for the Safari version of Yahoo Mail anyway. Yahoo needs to rectify this soon by reverting to "Mail within the App"; otherwise I'll delete this app and go back to Google mail. I can't imagine ANY Yahoo Mail user- hardcore or casual user- that is happy with this "fix". Pay attention to the desires of your users, Yahoo!
Decent app but so many annoying problems
by Skye Lars on 2014/11/27 19:52
I use this app daily to get a summary of news information. Unfortunately, the functionality has degraded over time and there are many problems. The news articles are not always the most recent, but rather repeated article from the day before even if I have read them. Sometimes the same set of news posts get recycled mutiple times per day. I also notice that posts accessed on my iPad do not render completely. Sometimes they come up blank or display an "Oops" message saying the page is missing. Other times, the news item displays and then part of it dissappears, or a section is missing at the end. It's easy enough to shutdown the app in iOS and reopen the post to get the full article, but what a lame way for an app to work! Another problem is that news items refer to a list that is not included so you figure it got mangled somehow. The feedback on types of news to include or block does no good at all. You get what Yahoo wants you to see... Everything.
Excellent
by Joethegamer on 2009/04/24 01:41
Read the title. Read it out loud. With some energy now. That's what this app is. For the reveiwer that gave a 1-star review because they couldn't see their msn contacts, WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?!?!?! You can't give a 1-star review because an app doesn't have a feature it didn't mention in the description! At least give four stars! (and besides, they're two different companies) Worry about more significant stuff, like the speed of the mail part, which is why I gave four stars. Yahoo!, please speed that up a bit. It's inconvenient and slow to close the app, search through nine pages of apps for "Mail," and then open it up on an Edge connection. Until you do that, I'm keeping this review at four stars. Also, please make the news part openable within the app rather than requiring a new page in Safari, which is annoying, and takes away from the blazing fast speed of this app.
Great App - needs some help though
by theedge103 on 2013/08/05 13:46
Maybe it's because I am a product manager and can be picky about certain products but this app seems like it needs some finishing touches. Many claim they hate the scrolling to a next story feature, I like it but it could use a settings menu to adjust sensitivity or disable for those who do not like it. I imagine there is some Summly tech in there but that program was not quite polished even though it was good. Some times the title of the story does not match the content and the main thing that bugs me about this app is that other stories require a click on the story then a click on the next screen to take you to the story, why can't you figure out how to skip the interim screen? Finally, when you have a story based around a photo, most of the time the photo is cropped where the story focus is not seen or worse no photo is part of the story at all. It is similar on video, give me the option to turn video stories off, I would rather read than get a video version of the story. That said, I enjoy the app, it is on the first screen of my iPhone and I use it ahead of apps like Flipboard. Yahoo is working in the right direction for mobile (go invest! :) ) with the latest Fantasy Football, Weather and Flickr apps and should not be discounted from other giants like Facebook and Google. Also, please make an iPad version!
Horrible application changes
by mikobsmith on 2012/08/16 22:23
This application was so much better when all it let you do was check your email. Now there's nothing but garbage on it, and there are constantly bugs. I've had to redownload this app about seven time. It's constantly signing you out, and about every third email you try to respond to or send you get an error message saying cannot complete go to your outbox we need to prove your human being, then you have to enter chain of letters and numbers in order for the program to verify you're a human being. Sometimes you have to do this over and over and over before it will finally let you send the email. Occasionally, I've lost the email. They need to stop that process. It's supposed to cut down on spam, all it does is frustrate the real user. When you're sending an email to one of the your contacts, it's not spam, and when you reply to an email, it's not spam, so why are they trying to make you "verify you're a human being". I still get about 10 spam a day. Old program was much better.
No Go
by AmyRDB on 2014/02/02 22:05
I skimmed, barely, 3 articles. Doesn't sound fair, does it...for me to dismiss Yahoo as "Not For THIS Awesome Lady," on so little research? When you've lived THIS long, & read leftist crap (that IS my being polite) in print the last 30 years, another's view "too far left" is easily believable. Today's popularized take on what USED to be news, is an insult to my intelligence & a disservice to our youth-who are capable enough to develop sound views without your constantly pervading opinions. The only thing wrong with today's youth are the crazy opinions they develop by sometimes believing your insanely inadequate rhetoric presented as fact. And them you dare call ME rigid and old-fashioned. May God bless the generations left with our political mess. BTW, NO ONE could have settled our country down and appropriately guided all of us to focus on our routines AND each OTHER HALF as effectively as our "bumbling" then-President GWBush. He has yet to be credited for the modeling of honesty, grace and hope that had yet to be witnessed since Abraham Lincoln. Just try. I won't be reading it anyway. Amy Bethel
Pleasantly Surprised!
by daniel.jacob on 2009/04/10 00:09
After using the crappy Yahoo! oneConnect app on my iPhone, I was skeptical about the new Yahoo! app. After using this new app, I am bidding farewell to both the Google and oneConnect apps. The new app is very clean and easy to navigate. The new theme for Yahoo! seems to be synergy, and from what I can see, they have a very good start. In particular, the "My Interests" tab is very cool. I am also very pleased with the apps integration of Yahoo! Calender and Mail. I like the integration of Facebook, Myspace, etc, but for the time being, status and photo updates are the only thing you can view; hopefully with time that will change. Yahoo! oneSearch is okay, but not anything like Google Search. All-in-All, I think Yahoo has done a great job with their new app, and I hope newer/better upgrades are in its future.
So confusing and horrible
by jonathan. on 2010/02/27 03:31
This app is horrible. There are so many tabs of nonsense. One tab has features that take you to websites within the app. Other links force you to open in Safari and quit the app. You can link to things like Facebook and Twitter but it doesn't do much. There are two tabs of news. There is no way to add your Yahoo bookmarks to this app anywhere, you have to type them all over again. Um...why? This app is a disaster. At least allow syncing with my Yahoo bookmarks. As of now it's just a lot of news and other features that make little sense. Will this take me to Facebook? Will this open within the app or ask me to close and go to Safari? Who knows, it's multiple tabs of confusion. Some things open in the app, most other things make you leave the app and Yahoo services like calendar and bookmarks aren't even integrated well. Go back to the drawing board. This app is the yahoo mobile website, with a lot if added bloat and mess. Horrible, horrible app.
Better Calendar feature PLEASE!
by BigLOU_77 on 2009/05/21 09:52
How a about making the calendar more mobile friendly for a change!!! I'll tell you, one of the worst things to want on the iPhone is a decent calendar. No app has done it right yet. I like to use my Yahoo! calaendar and was hoping that this app would eventually make the online version more functional for a mobile application. I don't expect alot out of web-site calendars. They don't need to be too user friendly for up-to-the-minute changes. But it would be nice for yahoo to make one. And it comes so close. Why no monthly view? How about a boxed calendar view? Up coming events reminder when the app opens? I think these are easy things to add. I'm not asking for sms or phone reminders (although it's an idea), and I know this isn't primarily a calendar app. But I think it has a long way to go to be called a good app. I could just use safari, but should I have to? I know it's free, but they can do ALOT better.
Terrible
by TDHinTPA on 2014/01/15 04:17
I downloaded this app originally several months ago, got so frustrated that I deleted it. I enjoy the stories on My Yahoo on my computer so I thought I would try installing this app again, on hopes the developers actually read the reviews and attempted to improve it. Nope, still a crappy app that doesn't work correctly. Half the time you start reading a story and touch the "continue reading" link or arrow and there is no more story! Or, you select an article to check out the picture from the "teaser" and there is no picture in the article. Also, it interrupts your reading to poll you "more articles like this"? Your only choice is yes or no. Most of the articles I just read. I don't necessarily want more of them, but I also don't want them to not show me them anymore either. Problem is, If you say "no" (don't show me more like this), it tells you it will stop showing those kind. Too many frustrating issues, gonna have to delete - AGAIN.
This app can be better
by Mr. Fader on 2014/07/11 19:02
I love the stories and news feed, it nearly the best way to get updated on all the events from sports, news, entertainment, etc. but I have so many issues with this app. 1. There's a button where you can choose to show less stories about this topic (ex. The kardashians, I could care less if they bought a new mansion, I don't want to see those stories) so I press that button, the next day, I'll get more kardashian stories. I've pressed that button for other irrelevant topics but that button never works. 2. The timeline is always weird, it constantly switches the stories around. For instance, it showed at the top that "Lebron still hasn't made the decision yet" then two stories below it, it shows "Lebron is returning to Cleveland" it's not in chronological order. I still have stories showing from last week!

by mkgrandma54 on 2012/10/28 06:06
Have this problem. Went to the apple store where they downloaded a yahoo app. I did get yahoo back through the app but not safari. This worked for a little while, now my iPad is telling me that I do not have enough storage. Apparently when they put the new yahoo app on my iPad they forgot to delete my yahoo mail in safari. Now my iPad is frozen because of lack of storage. I can't get into settings, or any apps. My iPad is useless until I find out how to access my settings and delete the safari yahoo mail. Anyone know how I can do this? The message says, Not Enough Storage This iPad cannot be backed up because there is not enough iCloud storage available. You can manage your storage in settings. The problem is it will not let me select the options it is giving me. 1) close 2) go to settings. iPad is frozen and useless. Not too happy right now!!!!!!!!!
Good, but some fixes are needed
by ttzshee39 on 2014/06/23 16:04
A good app. Although the app could fix some things. Such as, when new stories appear, sometimes you can manually refresh for new news, while other times the app automatically refreshes the app for new news. I'd prefer the manually eat over automatically refreshing. Also, when reading an article, whenever I accidentally swipe to the left or right, another article appears, when I swipe back to the article I was reading, it does not return me to the part of the article I was last reading before the accidental swipe. The app could remember which part of an article you were last reading and return you to that part.
Terrible app design - no thought to how people would actually use this
by sig the nomad on 2011/10/25 14:14
I don't often spend time harping on how useless apps are, but I thought I'd spend a moment venting my frustration at the poor design of the yahoo app on the off chance a developer or someone there at yahoo will take notice. I think most people probably use this app for mail of sports. I downloaded to have access to additional Yahoo Mail features that I cannot access thought iPhones interface. So why, I ask you, would you put the "send" button at the top of the mail section, in an area that scrolls out of view as you type more info into the body of the email? Moreover, why would you have a "done" button right above that that doesn't scroll? And even if you were just trying to keep you design simple, why wouldn't you add a feature to say "are you sure you want to stop composing this message without sending it?" when someone (me) hits the "done" button when I intended to hit the "send" button - I mean they are RIGHT next to each other. I find this type of lazy design in a lot of Yahoo's products. There is a reason your stock price is dipping. Stop creating useless features no one wants and focus on producing a superior product that serves a niche clientele. And stop messing with Sportstacular - it was fine the way it was.
Needs Lots of Work
by Bboy snake dog  on 2013/06/09 07:11
I loaded this freeby for one purpose...to load my Yahoo Address Book in order to avoid the excrutiatingly slow syncing with iTunes. Y! loads only about a 10th of my 700 plus address records. It seems to choke to a stop when it reaches records that start with a numeric character...like 1Click, which is a company name. Another feature I thought would be useful is loading my Yahoo Calendar. Unfortunately, the best it can do is one week at a time...in sequence. So to check my calendar for December, I need to advance more than 26 weeks...one week at a time. And the touch point to do that one-week advance is not very good...requing multiple touches to get the calendar to advance one week. Y! would certainly fill a need...to sync the iPhone with Yahoo Address Book and Calendar...if it did those functions right. I'd recommend waiting until Yahoo fixes these shortfalls before bothering with this app.
Good friend for 6 years Now nightmare
by Rosie305 on 2013/04/27 17:41
About 3 months ago I could not get to my e-mail costing me thousands in my work. AT&T the joint carrier for a change was a doll but every time we changed the password changed and the log-on was acceptable we would end up at Yahoo with x message akin to I was a hacker and blocked. They never answered my calls or AT&T's for this matter and when they finally spoke to my top attorney who was handling 600 cases like mine they blamed it all on AT&T then finally admitted they were changing browsers and had some trouble. Funny thing. The new browser is Bad Bad Bad. Stay away from them. Use Google Firefox even small-time browsers you check out even MS Explorer.

What were you thinking?
by SharyLee on 2011/08/16 16:49
I could look up anything, anytime, anywhere, and now, i sit and watch the little wheel spin and spin while I wait and wait. At a dinner party with friends, I could look up information, checkout wikipedia, or get info on the latest movies. not I sit and and watch the little wheel spin and spin while I wait and wait. What was wonderful about you is now gone. I have apps that give me news, you were my link to information, to local restaurants and businesses; now I can't even access that information in any sort of timely way. I am now loking for another app that will connect me to the internet and you will be deleated from the face of my iphone. Sorry. I loved you but you changed. I hoped it was temporary, I hoped you would come back to me, but you thought you know what I wanted, when all the time I wanted what you already had. I miss you. But you will be replaced.
Update has made it slow and unusable
by JA_player on 2011/09/17 21:09
Why did they have to spoil a good app? Don't bother with the 2.0 update. it takes forever to render even the first screen! Then it is unusably slow and irresponsive. I have gone from using it everyday to not using it at all! Update: 2.0.1 is equally slow... Don't think they fixed anything. Obviously they need to get more competent developers!! Even tried uninstall and reinstall. Didn't help :( finally just deleted the app. Too bad it went from being the first app I ran everyday to being unceremoniously kicked off my device!! Update 2: It has been over a month now.... everyone is pretty much saying this is a bad update... makes it unusable... any other company would have deployed more resources to fix it asap.... and still no response from Yahoo! Yup, their team needs to be dumped and replaced. no wonder the whole company is going downhill... in a hurry!
FINALLY got email to work
by Slarty Bartfast on 2012/04/26 17:53
I got the app solely to access my Yahoo mail, and it won't let me sign in. ("Sing-In Problem"? Really, Yahoo?) Update: This app is a JOKE!! I followed their instructions for problems with signing into Mail, and deleted and then reinstalled the app. No improvement. So again I followed their instructions and used the Help icon. But when I started trying to provide them with their requested diagnostic info, THE TEXT ROLLED OUT OF VIEW AND COULDN'T BE RETRIEVED!!! You know an App has serious QC issues when even their Help screen doesn't work properly!! Update: After farting around with the app for a WHILE, I tried signing into the ACCOUNT section (off the main screen) rather than trying to sign directly into my email account. This worked, and allowed me to access my email from the main screen icon. But nowhere (that I could find) was this explained to users. Add to that the fact that an email-only sign-in screen is offered for those who just want to use the email function, but which apparently can't get you into email if you aren't already signed in at the main screen, and the app has to be considered, at the very least, confusing.
more hype than substamce
by amcsi on 2010/05/22 05:20
In typical Yahoo fashion, the first three tabs are nothing other than news, most of which are "sensational" news rather than "informative" and meaningfully accurate. The only positives about this app is the occasionally functioning IM which is cross platform and the customization features (sadly same poor quality news). There are just way too many higher quality alternatives for multi platform IM's and news feeds for this app to be useful and for everything else its a Safari pop-up window which males having this app in place of bookmarks obsolete. My review would change if Yahoo's good stuff was accessible through this app or even through Safari consistently like Fantasy sports, games, etc. especially given how easily those things could be achieved. Come on Yahoo finish what you started, make it stable and mobile friendly...

Recent update destroyed this app
by Jeffro59 on 2014/04/21 01:44
This was my goto app for news. I have several others but preferred this one unquestionably. A recent update makes it really annoying. I previously enjoyed being able to scroll through a small thumbnail photo and the headline in small text so that I could find what I wanted to read more detail on. There were about 8-10 stories on each iPhone screen page. Now, each story takes up 2/3 of an iPhone page. Which means ALOT of scrolling. Very annoying. On top of that, it seems like the same stale stories are showing up every time I check in on the app, which is 2-3 times a day. Guess I will go back to the AP News app instead. Whomever the author is should allow the end user to adjust this story preview size setting. Within a week if it's not changed I will have to delete the app. Shame.
Yahoo news isn't all news.

Article headers are often misleading. Tapping "read more" frequently takes you nowhere. Just this morning opened an article with the heading "Football injury leads to shocking discovery". Opening that took me to an article about Halloween costumes and some other unrelated stuff I didn't read. Yahoo needs to check their work before tossing it out there. I'm also tired of seeing "10 new stories" at the top of the page, tapping only to discover 3 new stories, 2 "sponsored" ads and 5 old articles with new headlines. Just say 3 new stories please and don't eat up time and battery reposting articles I've already read. The experience would be better if, for example, the map of the Middle East could be enlarged. This is mobile, right? Nothing on the map on my screen is big enough to see so the impact is lost.
Good start

Here's my list of wishes: - Add the features already included for contacts in OneConnect. - MyYahoo content should be based on the feeds on my "MyYahoo" page; not be a separate list. - The calendar should include shared events and have a user setting for a default view - Messenger (and the standalone program) should be able to add people from my contact list - There's some redundancy in the structure. It seems like you can access the same thing three different ways - Since there is so much content crammed into one app, it would be nice if you could turn some features off to clean up the listings if you're not going to use them. If the content was tied more to MyYahoo page (synced or at least accessible) it would help with this.
Slanted "News Source"
by Bree712 on 2015/07/27 07:14
Absolutely disgusted with this app and Yahoo as a whole. Used it for many years and recently began paying attention to some of the comments on political articles. I started to notice the only comments allowed are the far right wing tea party comments. I posted several comments that "went against the grain" but were not radical or disrespectful in any way. My comments were promptly removed or "hidden" by yahoo and I was even locked out of my yahoo account on two occasions! I received email notifications saying my comments about Caitlyn Jenner had been "hidden" for low ratings by other users. I am very pro LGBT rights for the record. Yahoo has obviously forgotten about the right to freedom of speech and the have taken censoring to a whole new level! Do not use this app if you support gay rights, democratic ideals, or Hillary Clinton!
They don't let us choose which top three we want, and zero support/feedback if you have a problem.
by pacific on 2009/06/30 03:24
There is ZERO tech support / feedback for this App. I clicked on "Yahoo Support" and it goes to a link for the regular Yahoo computer website. Nothing for the App! They need to enable in the settings for the App the ability to choose which three categories you want at the top. Right now it defaults to Business, Entertainment, and Sports. You have zero choice! Terrible! What about headline news? World news? U.S. News? Nope, nope, and nope! You have to scroll down and click on extra links to see anything else. The option for the top three needs to be in the Settings for the App. Two stars. This App was not well thought out.
App Is A Great Step 
by Cingulair on 2009/04/17 22:57
So far the layout of the App is awesome. I wouldn't have thought to  for this. I was a little worried  about Yahoo before and stuff that was in the news. This App alone has strengthened my confidence in the company. I am too over joyed . I can see a strong future because of the strong vision  that was behind this App. It just could use a few more tweaks . I was using the news feature this morning, while I was on the phone, and everything froze . I had to do a restart. Next I love the new email options that we now have . But the address book doesn't allow for editing or adding contacts. That . The address book also is sort by first, last only. No preferential choice.
Absolutely miserable
by Jaimepants on 2014/01/22 01:00
I use Yahoo for business, and I cannot fathom the amount of business I have lost because people don't get my emails. This app is stupidly confusing, (and I am an intelligent person). Every time I send someone an email, it randomly goes to the wrong person for no apparent reason. When I try to refer back to old emails that contain important addresses for job sites, it CONSTANTLY tells me "failed to download message". If I had a dollar for every time I saw that error message is would be RICH. I can't tell you how many phone calls I've gotten from brides wanting to book me for their wedding who say "I never got an email back from you." I AM LOSING BUSINESS BECAUSE OF THIS STUPID APP. I wish I could use my gmail account but my yahoo email is on my website, my business cards, my account on TheKnot, etc. Please fix this.
Good, overall. A LOT of inexperienced contributors.
by billyhill1972 on 2014/09/07 22:22
The two Biggest problems are the HUGE amount of typos, misspellings and inexperience of the writers, in general. Lately, there have been quite a bit of reporting that is completely wrong, or in some cases, contradicting itself in mid article. Secondly, MOST of the time, you cannot click through to the articles it was supposedly inspired by. Also, it would be nice to be able to reply about these inaccurately reported "facts", by your contributors that are clearly biased to one side, or the other. I love the access, I just hate to have fact check the things in some of these articles. A lot of the stories are just that, stories, NOT news articles.
Kinda useless...
by mgmros on 2013/12/13 05:30
...if the articles are incomplete. The photo on the header of the article is cool-looking, but doesn't show the whole photo which again makes the app useless. Photos paint a thousand words... so put some in the body of the article! I had to click on the "share" button, copy link, open a browser, then paste link for the complete article also to find out that there are more photos on a lot of the articles. Why can't they all be seen on the Yahoo! app? If you purposely chose to limit what is shown on the app, can you at least add a quick link to open the original article in a browser instead of copying link, opening a browser then pasting? Wait, I changed my mind. If you can't show the complete article on the app, just forget it. It's just useless at that point.
Needs work
by Unfortunate Joe on 2013/12/07 04:34
This app has gone from kind of okay to completely terrible. Now when clicking on a story and thinking you're going to get to read the whole thing, you might get a fragment of the story and then are left hanging. Not to mention if the story is in video form you might think that you're getting in entertainment story and end up watching a yahoo video on how to make a vegetable centerpiece. If you're going to claim to be an app where I can access the news, please create an app which will allow me to actually access the entire news story. Please, what you're doing is actually doing nothing more than wasting the data that I have to pay for each month. Please don't make me resent and delete you. I swear all these five-star reviews must be from the spouses of the developers.
Good, for the price...
by Jmart388 on 2014/05/01 15:02
App will get you through boring periods of times where you may find a few interesting stories to thumb through to kill some time, but hardly a "real" news app with yahoo company writers and the long incessant list of things you care nothing to read or know about. What would make this a better app, at least for me, is the option to post my unnecessary opinion about how i would live my life and how you should not be living yours (comments) in through the mobile app. So far you can only do this through desktop. You can check email, save sites and the basic. Dont expect miracles as many as us do, its a mobile app not a desktop site.
Can they ever get it right
by Campbell Runner on 2015/01/31 02:34
Sooooo frustrating. They have the format and all the content I want but it is always with bugs. Either they with spotlight a video, but they won't have access to the video when you click on the link. Then they will talk about a great picture or house on the market and have now pictures in their article. All they need is to link to the article in their stories, but it is usually only half the articles that do this. Soooo frustrating. After about 3 years of watching the interface change, I am finally forced to find another app to get my general news, sports updates and general info. Pleeeeease just finish the great products you have Yahoo instead of trying to do everything. You are so smart, yet so dumb at the same time.
Fine, but annoying
by Concerned mama on 2013/02/22 14:55
The app works fine. I pretty much use it just for mail on my iPhone. Two pet peeves, however, while using the app to check my mail I always get a screen that asks if I want the app for my iPhone. Good grief!! I'm already USING the silly thing! The second most annoying thing is this: after I've scrolled down and loaded several pages of emails to get where I need to be, once I actually read the email and go back to my inbox, it automatically takes me to the top again. If after reading the email it would go back to the same place I was, that would be so great. Fix the constant asking for something I obviously already have, beautiful!
It's a downgrade!!!
by Shanying on 2012/09/09 07:01
Last version worked almost perfectly after Yahoo's multiple attempts to provide a useful app for iPhone users. Email is the feature, I think, why most people still stick with this app and Yahoo service as a whole. Now it opens email in Safari with this version upgrade. Why do we still need this app then? This upgrade is a downgrade to me. Another bug with the email in the old version: if you have a folder with some emails, you can't batch edit those emails by deleting or spam them ALL together. If you do so, those emails will be deleted or spammed as you wish. But you will be stuck there with all the options grayed. You can't go back to check email in other folders or do anything with the email unless you quit, close, and relaunch the app.
???
by Zzfzź on 2013/02/18 00:24
It's a little bit glitchy in the fact you have to randomly completely close the app to get back into the in box from viewing certain emails. Doesn't sound that bad but when you have dozens if not hundreds of emails in your in box and your trying to view past messages it becomes a problem to have to close the app and scrowel back threw to find where you left off. Hard enough working with a small screen. Plus you can't delete messages while viewing them ?? There's an icon to click but no action. I have to push the edit button and the flip threw pages to find the one email I want to delete. Other than that its great
OK
by apevny on 2010/04/15 04:56
The app is decent with good stories, the main "Featured" page loads very slowly though even on WiFi. The most notable issue that bugs me is, why do some stories load within the app's own safari browser while some ask to open the full safari web browser? It seems to me that they should all load within the app except for videos. It's very annoying to have it open the new browser window, read the story, close the browser, and go open up the yahoo app again. I will note a few image optimizations on the "Featured" page and transitioning the stories to all open locally within the app and the star rating would easily be 4-5 stars.
If you don't need this app, DON'T GET IT!
by Lindseymnelson on 2012/07/17 15:42
I love omg! but I cannot read the full articles on some of the stories. It will not let me scroll down and sometimes I can't even scroll through pictures. Please fix bc I love the yahoo! app. I had to take away two stars bc this app is giving Yahoo, a trusted website a bad rap. Where do all my emails go that I DO NOT personally delete? Sometimes they are there, and then I go to look at them again and they are gone! Also, sometimes when I go to delete emails, it will check one I did not check and delete it. I know this bc I will check my trash and there will be a very important email in there I didn't delete. Fix this, or I will unsubscribe to yahoo and go with your competition for email!
Good app with one annoying issue
by Big Money Wells on 2015/06/10 00:41
Yahoo is easily my number one go-to news app. But let's be frank. Part of the reason I use it so much is to read the comments section. I hate the way the comments piece work on the mobile app. It gives users the ability to post comments (some articles restricted), but I have no way to go back and see if I received thumbs up or replies to my comments. Please fix this one issue YAHOO. Make the app allow me to view my historical comments and post replies when I receive replies from other users. I've also noticed that some articles enable comments on my Mac but are locked out on the mobile App. Just an observation
Frustrating at times
by Daddy Jason on 2013/06/18 14:18
I like the fact that this app has a number of news articles/headlines. What I find frustrating: When I click on the article to read it based on the headline, I'm redirected to another page that may or may not have a complete article or picture as indicated by the headline. Example: Headline, "Talk about a purr-fect mistake". After clicking on the headline I am redirected to the actual article (not a big deal) which describes a graduates funny cake where the bakery put a cat instead of a cap on her picture on the cake. There is a picture....but the cat cap is cut off and no where is there a link to the actual picture. This happens way to often....
Nothing worth reading
by tr42_0151 on 2014/04/27 03:36
I used to read yahoo news because it would Keep me up to date on current news. While I'm not saying that it still doesn't. But yahoo news has been consistently become overrun with nonsense articles about stuff that nobody would ever really care about. There's plenty of actual news out there to report without having to use these filler stories. Also you will see the same stories being recycled every 6 months or so. But my biggest complaint has got to be yahoo's biased news reports towards advancing they're liberal agenda. So be careful reading reading from this sight, you are being brainwashed into believing our current government is actually helping us. Stick to another news sight. I will now delete the yahoo app
Good, but too much in one app
by SVKinAZ on 2009/04/01 06:38
There are parts of this app that are very well done, but I don't understand Yahoo's insistence on bundling everything into one single app. I would much prefer to have separate apps for Yahoo News, Yahoo Messenger/OneConnect, Yahoo Mail & Calendar, etc. To combine them all in one makes the app a bit hard to navigate. Also, some of the better features of Yahoo OneConnect seem to be removed. Although I can aggregate almost any social network using this app, it's not as easy as Yahoo OneConnect. I have a feeling most people won't use this app simply because it includes way too much instead of just the Yahoo services they need or want.
Well designed, fast, with good stories, but...
by PerkyMcSkittles on 2015/07/23 03:32
The ads. I understand that they need to monetize the app, but the ads blend in too well, and are too frequent. The second story in a list category is an ad, then every four headlines there is one. And the ad looks identical to a regular news headline. Like one I got under news was something like 'do you love your dog?' And I was like yeah of course, click, and it was an add for a flea product. I feel the ads need to either stand out more, be less frequent or just not be there. Granted the last one is unlikely to happen, but I would do an In app purchase to get rid of the ads. They really are horrible.
Pretty good overall
by Jason Saliba on 2015/04/30 15:03
Good content. Adequate design. One really annoying thing though. I scroll through the headlines pretty quick so a lot of times I scroll a little bit too far and need to scroll back up so I can read the full headline. When I scroll back up, the top purple bar has to come out from the top of the screen before it scrolls up any. So a half centimeter thumb movement turns into an inch. This is really annoying to the point that I want to use a new app. And there's no point to it. Just keep the top purple bar there all the time. Please change it Yahoo.
Awesome
by Marrryanne on 2015/03/15 06:23
I love this app, I go here to read articles about the latest news and current events like the war on ISIL, the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, etc. many ppl would say why wouldn't you go to cnn or Fox News? It's because this app never crashes and doesn't take a long time to load up, I simply just touch the app and I'm in, cnn takes at least 5 minutes and half the time it crashes as soon as the home page appears. I definitely prefer you to download this app if you like reading
