    Not enough options to customize view. Not enough separation between news items.
  • by Chaz 7/13/2013
    5 stars if live tiles were used.
  • by MediaCenter 4/4/2013
    Doesn't fill screen on HTC 8X. Other than that, it's pretty good.
  • by Buddy 3/7/2013
    Great news gathering source.
  • by Thomas 2/16/2013
    Solid but unspectacular. With some enhancements it will be five star
  • by Narayan 1/11/2013
    Use it everyday

    Pretty good Google News app. Fairly quick and works in landscape mode. I wish there was the option to load more stories or related stories. Also, it always goes back to the tech screen whenever I open it.

    Its good for searching for something specific, but you can't access your google news account if you already have one set up. Once it can do that it will be perfect.
