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

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!!

by davesquid on 2015/05/22 06:26
The articles are poorly written. Too many stupid adds. The worst part? Photos are almost never in articles about things you need to see! '130 Blue Jeans Discovered and they look Pretty Good': but you won't know, because they didn't attach a photo!

Old stories, no advanced filtering
by Well alrighty then on 2015/05/10 22:49
I see this especially on the sports tab, where yesterday's stories are on the front page. Also it's a bit frustrating that I can't sort which sports I want to see. I don't follow MLB, so I would like to filter that out like the Team Stream app.

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.

The format is fine, and I can even live with the ads. However something must be done with the content. Too dumbed down. Develop a user customizable, curated method more like Zite and I'd use it.

Not the best news app
by Luallenj on 2015/04/25 13:47
It needs more news resources, they constantly recycle news stories, and when the title of the news story says something about a video or picture, there isn't a video or picture to look at. The only reason I use this app is because it has the best design, just lacks content.

Read Sponsored Stories and Use Our Other Apps
by PhantomAudio on 2015/04/08 18:22
Yahoo used to be my go-to for news. Now, every other story is a sponsored ad about how this celebrity got their body or what homeopathic remedy will cure all your ails. Even their banner headlines send you to yet another Yahoo news app...what is that now, three? Four apps for news? Forget yahoo. I'll be using another service from now on.
Frustrating
by I am Scott a on 2015/04/08 17:09
The app is fine but the widget is really strange, not unlike many apps. It's unclear if I can change what the widget shows me or if I'm even able to change it(why can't I decide? It's my phone after all.) I don't care about celebrities or parenting or style. I care about news, tech and sports. Show me news, tech and sports in the widget. Is that too much to ask?

I recommend my best friends to add on their iPhone 6, Air iPad and Tablet . If , they have a Computer to add the feature, too.

Terrible. Had enough today when one of the headlines of a missing airliner that said it was posted 11hrs ago turned out to be a story from 4 months ago. That won't worry people. Also tons of article headlines mentioning an interesting photo or video only to not include the photo/video in the article.

This app WAS awesome, then they changed the interface of the app so it... Delays horribly Article says "photo found of..." And then doesn't have/load the picture(s) associated with the article. More ad's than 2nd grade math. And if you ever see a photo album or top 10 list do not click it. The next generation of iphone will come out before you have the chance to see all the pics. Horrible idea and design filled with ads and delays...
This app is crap
by L8keshow on 2015/04/02 15:02
Mostly advertising. Don't waste your time
So many links
by FCVA22046 on 2015/04/02 01:28
I cannot read an entire article without accidentally clicking one (or more) of the dozens of embedded links. This makes for a hugely frustrating user experience. Also probably 40% of the articles are "sponsored" content.
Not super impressed.
by jonnyyoyo on 2015/04/01 23:03
The app is full of ads, and it only shows the top most category of my preferences. While I have five categories checked, it only shows Yahoo politics, which is on top. If I uncheck Yahoo politics, it only shows Yahoo health, which is next.
New font needed
by Lynray58 on 2015/04/01 20:33
The font in the new app isn't as readable. The light type and font face aren't a good combo. One thing I noticed was there seems to be fewer story duplications. In the old app, there would often be three or more articles about the same thing. Wish we could say which news service stories we want. I also wish yahoo would have a feature (that they wouldn't ignore) relative to which stories you want. Edited: above I wrote that there are fewer duplicate stories. That is no longer true. Today, one story was duplicated 16times! This is 15 times too many. I'm thinking about getting rid of this app.
Great design
by sfseay on 2015/04/01 19:37
I like the app so far. I understand Yahoo has to make money, but the number of sponsored ads and popup ads can be annoying

Mostly sponsored content
by Panchero on 2015/03/31 03:29
This was a great app. I used to love it. But now, so many of the articles are sponsored ads that read like headlines. Not with my time. Uninstalling. It was great when it first came out.
Too Many Issues
by Austus15 on 2015/03/30 18:42
Scrolling through the news feed there are way too many sponsored ads. Also, when reading articles I get only half of the story because it cuts off the bottom half. Imbedded videos too often don't show up and if they do, they won't work. For somebody who reads as much as I do, it would be nice for the ap that yahoo forces me to use, actually worked as well as yahoo does on a web browser.

Almost worthless
by elentex on 2015/03/30 01:41
Tap on an article to read it and instead I get access a whole string of "Sponsored links." In fact there are many more ads than there are stories. Used to be a lot easier to see the articles. This app has become more trouble than its worth to me. I'm deleting it.

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?
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.
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.
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 Les Patton 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!
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

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.
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.
Comments section disabled
by Big Money Wells on 2014/07/11 03:58
Yahoo used to be my number choice for news for two reasons. Aside from the good selection of stories I always found the comments section to be equally entertaining because it put a news event in "full perspective". However, this app doesn't allow a user to view the yahoo comments section of an article. In fact, none of the links in the app do. This makes their news boring. In fact, as of 2014 I've found many yahoo articles viewed from a mobile browser now disable the comments section entirely. Desktop computers are the only place where I can still view the comments section. It would be great if Yahoo brought this function back. Can't stand the censorship
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
New update is a slight improvement
by Pilothunter on 2011/10/26 13:32
The latest version is somewhat improved in speed an use ability. That's not to say it is without problems. But now I can finally think about using this app again. Videos render properly most of the time. The yahoo today is visible news feeds appear correctly and quickly. However the app still crashes from time to time. Add banners obscure navigation and it is not immediately apparent that you can scroll around the blocking ads. Splash screens say you can do certain things when in fact you can't. But overall better than any version before. Review edited due to crashing. Why can't yahoo get this right?
Poor upgrade losses capability
by L_J_B_C on 2013/05/01 23:44
This "upgrade" is terrible, they have removed most functionality, and just turned it into a launcher for other Apps and filled it with over the top fancy pictures and useless design. It's impossible to read stories, incredibly slow off wifi, and keeps locking up. For Email it launches A separate Yahoo Mail app. If I wanted to use That app would go to it myself. Same with messenger, the tool bar just tries to launch the messenger app. Why not at least make this a setting I can choose? We need and expect a single integrated App that lets us get to all our Yahoo accounts simply and easily and manage them there. This is a classic case of form over Function. One of the worst App GUIs I have ever seen.
Faster and has continual list of articles.
by Ladyaleung on 2013/05/16 02:14
I do still miss the classic look, only because its what I've been used to all these years. The new look works and is actually more practical as it allows me to quickly scan more info in a shorter period of time. The list of news just keeps going unlike the older version. It can also toggle back and forth between articles quickly without disruptive wait time. Great job! Only recommendation is for users to be able to modify the type of view settings they choose.

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.

I see this especially on the sports tab, where yesterday's stories are on the front page. Also it's a bit frustrating that I can't sort which sports I want to see. I don't follow MLB, so I would like to filter that out like the Team Stream app.

Not the best news app
by Luallenj on 2015/04/25 13:47
It needs more news resources, they constantly recycle news stories, and when the title of the news story says something about a video or picture, there isn't a video or picture to look at. The only reason I use this app is because it has the best design, just lacks content.

Read Sponsored Stories and Use Our Other Apps
by PhantomAudio on 2015/04/08 18:22
Yahoo used to be my go-to for news. Now, every other story is a sponsored ad about how this celebrity got their body or what homeopathic remedy will cure all your ails. Even their banner headlines send you to yet another Yahoo news app...what is that now, three? Four apps for news? Forget yahoo. I'll be using another service from now on.
Frustrating
by I am Scott a on 2015/04/08 17:09
The app is fine but the widget is really strange, not unlike many apps. It's unclear if I can change what the widget shows me or if I'm even able to change it(why can't I decide? It's my phone after all.) I don't care about celebrities or parenting or style. I care about news, tech and sports. Show me news, tech and sports in the widget. Is that too much to ask?

This app WAS awesome, then they changed the interface of the app so it... Delays horribly Article says "photo found of..." And then doesn't have/load the picture(s) associated with the article. More ad's than 2nd grade math. And if you ever see a photo album or top 10 list do not click it. The next generation of iphone will come out before you have the chance to see all the pics. Horrible idea and design filled with ads and delays...
This app is crap
by L8keshow on 2015/04/02 15:02
Mostly advertising. Don't waste your time
So many links
by FCVA22046 on 2015/04/02 01:28
I cannot read an entire article without accidentally clicking one (or more) of the dozens of embedded links. This makes for a hugely frustrating user experience. Also probably 40% of the articles are "sponsored" content.
Not super impressed.
by jonnyyoyo on 2015/04/01 23:03
The app is full of ads, and it only shows the top most category of my preferences. While I have five categories checked, it only shows Yahoo politics, which is on top. If I uncheck Yahoo politics, it only shows Yahoo health, which is next.
New font needed
by Lynray58 on 2015/04/01 20:33
The font in the new app isn't as readable. The light type and font face aren't a good combo. One thing I noticed was there seems to be fewer story duplications. In the old app, there would often be three or more articles about the same thing. Wish we could say which news service stories we want. I also wish yahoo would have a feature (that they wouldn't ignore) relative to which stories you want. Edited: above I wrote that there are fewer duplicate stories. That is no longer true. Today, one story was duplicated 16times! This is 15 times too many. I'm thinking about getting rid of this app.
Great design
by sfseay on 2015/04/01 19:37
I like the app so far. I understand Yahoo has to make money, but the number of sponsored ads and popup ads can be annoying

Mostly sponsored content
by Panchero on 2015/03/31 03:29
This was a great app. I used to love it. But now, so many of the articles are sponsored ads that read like headlines. Not with my time. Uninstalling. It was great when it first came out.
Too Many Issues
by Austus15 on 2015/03/30 18:42
Scrolling through the news feed there are way too many sponsored ads. Also, when reading articles I get only half of the story because it cuts off the bottom half. Imbedded videos too often don't show up and if they do, they won't work. For somebody who reads as much as I do, it would be nice for the ap that yahoo forces me to use, actually worked as well as yahoo does on a web browser.

Tap on an article to read it and instead I get access a whole string of "Sponsored links." In fact there are many more ads than there are stories. Used to be a lot easier to see the articles. This app has become more trouble than its worth to me. I'm deleting it.

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?
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!
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.
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 Les Patton 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.

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.

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

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!

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!
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.
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.
Comments section disabled
by Big Money Wells on 2014/07/11 03:58
Yahoo used to be my number choice for news for two reasons. Aside from the good selection of stories I always found the comments section to be equally entertaining because it put a news event in "full perspective". However, this app doesn't allow a user to view the yahoo comments section of an article. In fact, none of the links in the app do. This makes their news boring. In fact, as of 2014 I've found many yahoo articles viewed from a mobile browser now disable the comments section entirely. Desktop computers are the only place where I can still view the comments section. It would be great if Yahoo brought this function back. Can't stand the censorship
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
New update is a slight improvement
by Pilothunter on 2011/10/26 13:32
The latest version is somewhat improved in speed an use ability. That's not to say it is without problems. But now I can finally think about using this app again. Videos render properly most of the time. The yahoo today is visible news feeds appear correctly and quickly. However the app still crashes from time to time. Add banners obscure navigation and it is not immediately apparent that you can scroll around the blocking ads. Splash screens say you can do certain things when in fact you can't. But overall better than any version before. Review edited due to crashing. Why can't yahoo get this right?
Poor upgrade losses capability
by L_J_B_C on 2013/05/01 23:44
This "upgrade" is terrible, they have removed most functionality, and just turned it into a launcher for other Apps and filled it with over the top fancy pictures and useless design. It's impossible to read stories, incredibly slow off wifi, and keeps locking up. For Email it launches A separate Yahoo Mail app. If I wanted to use That app would go to it myself. Same with messenger, the tool bar just tries to launch the messenger app. Why not at least make this a setting I can choose? We need and expect a single integrated App that lets us get to all our Yahoo accounts simply and easily and manage them there. This is a classic case of form over Function. One of the worst App GUIs I have ever seen.
Faster and has continual list of articles.
by Ladyaleung on 2013/05/16 02:14
I do still miss the classic look, only because its what I've been used to all these years. The new look works and is actually more practical as it allows me to quickly scan more info in a shorter period of time. The list of news just keeps going unlike the older version. It can also toggle back and forth between articles quickly without disruptive wait time. Great job! Only recommendation is for users to be able to modify the type of view settings they choose.
