  • Lousy GUI

    By Sad freelancer
    New update and the Soduko doesn't work again. Too many times an update will cause it not to fill or in this case open. Now it won't get past the last one second of the advert and it's been that way thru two updates.
  • Still annoying

    By Annoyingrandomname25447
    The latest “updates” added a Sections icon that scrolls to the top and needs another tap to actually get to the Sections menu. (I can already scroll to the top of an article list, the same as every other iPhone app). And the text within each article now jumps around as it’s scrolled through and various graphics & ads randomly pop in. Why would you make the app more annoying and tedious?
  • News Made Interesting

    By Airtaxman
    USA Today online provides broad coverage of current news including color photos. This a go to news source for articles not found in other newspapers.
  • Concise, clear coverage.

    By Picky Alan
    Solid journalism, researched editorial content, great investigative reporting, and a terrific breadth of coverage. A lot of positives with no complaints! Great “newspapering” done on line.
  • Top Stories

    By Landryct
    USA Today on my kindle only shows sports news under Top Stories. I hate that !
  • Good Content, But Text Shifts Too Quickly

    By JV58
    Overall, I’ve enjoyed and appreciated the USA Today app on my iPhone and iPad for several years. Good content, reasonable balance. I do perceive a bit of a liberal/left bias, but in their defense, they do post opinion pieces from a conservative viewpoint, and they do a good job of identifying and labeling opinions that may be biased when they are posted. My only criticism with the current app is that the text shifts forward in the article as the ads load, and causes sections of articles to be skipped ahead. This happens sometimes 2-3 times while reading an article—definitely frustrating when trying to read through the article. (I’m trusting this problem will be addressed.) Overall, a good source of information that I’ll continue to use.
  • I like the new, but do miss the old

    By KoaPule
    The old was easier to navigate
  • Paper reports findings right

    By Casa 457
    Love this paper, read it first thing in the morning, thank you. I like the idea of what I’m reading and trust they have the facts straight.
  • USA Today Mobile App

    By steinblitz
    Easy to navigate. Great layout.
  • HATE the pop-up audio ads!!!

    By Salspro
    Loud, obnoxious, pop-up audio ads are so annoying! These are relatively new; used to be able to read the news in peace and quiet. Now get unwanted audio about constipation! Seriously!! Do not get this app unless you want to mute your device every time you use it.
