After tying a bunch of the top news apps Flipboard Feedly Newsify Smart News etc that were all good in their own way but missing a few features I discovered Googles Newsstand With a fast beautiful interface that allows you to have multiple topics wide range of sources and custom categories added this is perfect You can always download for offline reading as well Very surprised this is not Googles primary news app vs Google News in the App Store Newsstand makes it look amateur Give it a try its gone to my home screen and used multiple times a day Please keep up this initiative and supporting this great app My only suggestion to Google as of now would be to have an option to reorder Topics rather than just move to top Thanks                Fantastic News Aggregator
Recently changed to iOS on both phone and tablet and found out that my magazine subscription isnt accesible This killed this app for me As a news aggregator its good enough but without magazines its worthless to me Google add magazine support and Ill bump the rating to 4 for now Im uninstalling       No magazines big problem
Excellent update magazine finally                Magazines finally
Main reason I downloaded the app       Needs magazine support
Every time I prepare for flight or being somewhere with no data connection or wifi I click update downloads thinking this will give me plenty to read during 2 hour flight But disappointed every time that no new articles are accessible Maybe I just dont get it       download articles Am I doing something wrong
Can you add magazines Itll be amazing if you do that                Magazines
UpdateLess buggy much worse right wing propaganda stream Cant mute Fake RW news like PL and The Blaze Google there is nothing legit about these sources Give us mute Deleting app nowThe most frustrating news program ever Amateur hour and dreadful Every version up to the latest has been buggy but this one on an iPad 2 is nonfunctional Permanently 90 degrees counterclockwise and malformed crashes constantly etc Does Google have ANY professional programmers See Hangouts for more inane bugginessHow can Google release such a mess and not fix it for weeks To give it one star is an insult to stars    Dreadful
Worthless until it supports magazines Very short sided on googles part    No magazine support for iOS
Thanks Google for finally listening Only giving 4 stars because I have not had the chance to see how well they work but 4 stars is better than the 1 star rating I gave originally because of the missing mag support             Magazine subs finally
If I can watch my Google play movies and listen to my Google music content on iOS why cant I read my Google play newsstand magazine purchases Please fix this for the ultimate mobile experience    Magazines please
Geez Google it took you 3 months to update the October 20th version and that version was messed up on the iPad 2 didnt fill the screen Well you finally fixed that but this version is sluggish as hell Why do you keep going backwards Hire some competent programmers I loved you app before the 1020 update    Each update gets worse
Useless app if I cant read the magazines Ive paid for    Garbage
Used 18gb in 10 days only doing light browsing    Crazy data usage
Great                Great saves me from Apple newstand
Not sure why all the low stars I love it Thx Google I use this as my go to source for news Once again first to market and an amazing product Great job                Best News App
If Im paying for a magazine subscription I expect to READ on all devices Come on Google this is NONSENSE    Magazine support
Same as everyone else If I pay to subscribe to a magazine I want to be able to watch it on my phone it my tablet my iPhone or my galaxy tab Please add Magazine support          Magazine
I want to read the magazines I ownsubscribe to Please fix this       Magazines
Plz fix it Love the app and it doesnt open on ios8    Doesnt work on ios8
App is useless to me without the ability to view your magazine subscriptions       No Magazine Support
Need to be allowed to block news sites that you dont want to see Shouldnt have to keep seeing PAY WALLS because the articles you show from the New York Times and others keep showing I dont pick them anymore and I dont want to even see themGlad to use this on my iPhoneiPad Keep the updates coming             NOT BAD BUT
Lately I get direct ad popups when I flip pages which in turn redirect to the App Store This shouldnt be allowed    Annoying popups to App Store
What are get thinking Currents was great this is a joke Very limited amount of data in the feeds Navigation is awkward and I cant see the point the point of replacing currents with this crap Deleting and looking at other apps like feedly etc    Worthless replacement for currents
And still no magazine subscription support    A year later
All of the sudden my feed is dominated by small foreign news services and none of the content I subscribed to Ive had to go back to using a standard RSS app leaving Googles beautifully designed app behind       Used to be awesome
As much as I like Googles Newsstand I have to always migrate to Safari to be able to use the Reader function which Google Chrome does not have it whenever I open the news I want to read As much as I like Googles Chrome browser I still cant figure out why theres no simple function to show just the content of a web page Apples iOS Safari has this feature its called Reader and its outstanding This is why every time I use Newsstand by Google I have to migrate to Safari to be able to use Reader Flipboard anotherApp allows you to open the news directly in Safari and use the wonderful Reader option          Nice News Aggregator But
I wish I could get to my magazines that I subscribe to on my iPhone dont give you that option iTunes Store doesnt carry the ones I want          Magazines
Half of this apps current news articles are about the stupid Apple Watch I have no obvious way to correct this but Google should know my searchbrowse history enough to know that I do not have a fanboy obsession with it This morning it only showed me 1 article on Nepal BUT I GOT PLENTY ABOUT THE APPLE WATCH    RedundantIrrelevant Articles
Whats the point if you cant read the magazines of which youre subscribed    Awful
Love the app except for the fact it often crashes Especially when linking to stories outside the app within the framework of the app I keep hoping one day its crash free       Great app It just crashes a lot
Useless without magazine support    Horrible
Worthless till a mute source option is made    Needs a mute source option until then its worthless
Will not load at all on iPhone 6 iOS 8    App Crashes
Great app Keep improving it                Magazine support finally
If you charge me money for a product and tell me I can read it on any device then I should be able to read it on any device Why cant I access my magazines Very disappointing    I dont even want to give you one star
Doesnt work on IOS 8 IPhone 6    Doesnt work
Decent app for news but lacks magazine support I have magazines I purchased on my tablet that I cant get on my phone Cmon Google          Bleh
I have a lot of magazines on Google Play I want to be able to read them on my iPad    Magazines
Without magazine support it is worthless to me Uninstalled    No magazines worthless
Would be nice to have better offline reading options but at least no more server errors             Working again
Just says there was a server error Please try again later    Stopped working
I have used this app since it was google currents however it keeps crashing when switching between articles Every time they release an update I hope they fix the problem but its still there Google should be able to do better than this       Fix it
Taking away SMS notifications from calendar takes away stars from all of your apps Reverse your decision and Ill reverse my ratings     SMS Notifications
App great                Great app
Update went from 5 to 3 stars Reason the inability to mute certain news sources is become more and more problematic These days my feed is chalked full of news from Australia I live in the US right wing opinion pieces Im fairly liberal and poorly written blog posts about super heroes The app has gone from being a pleasure to being a massive nuisance Old reviewI had stopped using Currents long ago due to its clunky interface and substandard performance I had tried Flipboard for a whole along with a litany of competing news aggregators but none of them were a pleasure to use I was really dubious about Newstand but I gave it a shot because why not Long story short this app had everything I want in an extremely fluid and easy to understand interface It has customizable lists of interesting articles based on sources I follow or I can look at my library and catch up on everything from a particular source This has become the app I spend the most time in on my phone now          No longer My new goto news reader
I loved currents app I could choose my source and drink coffee and read some news in the morning This app only seems to give me tech and glamor bs You can find some actual news with some work It seems like half the stories are about the newest apple product and its frustrating Deleted this today and just got separate apps for npr cbc and bbc Wow news       Doesnt give me actual news
I loved this appgorgeous                Wonderful
Why does the app take you to the browser to read a article Defeats the purpose of the app    Useless
Dont understand Google if it isnt broke why mess with it Unfortunately that is what they did with Currents Google Play Newsstand runs like crap especially on an iPad mini or otherwise Doest matter if your using on iPhone or iPad Downloading magazines are a waste of time and bandwidth as you cannot read any content while offline Google give us back Currents       Currents was better
Cmon Google I want my magazines on any device including iOS    One star for NO MAGAZINES
