  • Great journalism

    By Anonymous1990_
    My number 1 source for reliable news.
  • Bad update

    By M&MHG
    Latest update is bad. App is now sluggish, freezes on occasion, and blows up. When else load, it moves the text on my screen,. This app is now very annoying to use, and I am about to delete it. Not sure what kind of quality testing was done before this app was put out for uploading. Please fix.
  • Sliding down hill

    By 1fastmo
    I’m not sure what’s changed but this app crashes pretty consistently. iPhone 6 with the 11.2.2 update. I would be sadden to move on to another news source, it may be inevitable if this continues.....
  • Content great but app leaves a lot to be desired

    By venture2
    Two primary complaints: 1) App crashes much too frequently 2) Uses excessive power even if not using videos
  • Keeps crashing

    By RandyConley
    This is my go-to news app, but for whatever reason, it has been repeatedly crashing at random times while in use. Please fix!
  • Irritating ad intrusion ruins app

    By thwipp72
    Lately, every time I open the app an video ad start singing at me and using up my data even though I haven’t touched any ad. Had to deep six the app.
  • Crashes all the time

    By Bad wemo
    Software is up to date and always is. App crashes all the time. Can read 2 articles before it crashes. Heck, 3rd time writing this review...if u can read this, it finally didn’t crash again.
  • Battery Hog!

    By Kris-KD
    Uses 23% of battery life in 10 minutes! I really enjoy the content, but I couldn't justify using the app anymore due to the energy consumption.
  • Need Better Editing

    By Condo Gal
    Recently the number of typos in articles and headlines has increased dramatically. It seems as if no one looks at the articles before they are posted to the website. Perhaps they should turn off the auto-check feature and have humans actually do the editing.
  • With each update....

    By Rap1234rap
    Although I look forward to reading USA TODAY, with each update, I experience frequent and annoying shut downs. I tried reinstalling, but to no avail. Please bring back the 5 star experience. Thank you.
