    Apple today opened up its Apple News Format to all publishers, giving independent publishers and individuals tools to offer rich media content within the Apple News app for iOS 9, as noted by Vanity Fair.

    Apple News launched as part of iOS 9, offering a one-stop location for users to keep up on news on various topics from a number of different sources. Any publication with an RSS feed could apply to be included in Apple News, but initially only a select group of major publications was given access to the Apple News Format that allowed for much richer content to be included in their feeds.
    As highlighted by Wired, Apple is also rolling out a new analytics dashboard for Apple News publishers, giving them access to data on users viewing their content on the platform.

    Apple should be updating its News Publisher portal shortly with details on how publishers can take advantage of the new format for maximum impact.

    How about you work on making News NOT the slowest-loading app on my phone, then we can talk about adding features?

    Until they stop allowing articles that are blurbs that tell you to open the article on the web, I will not use this app.

    ^^THIS^^

    Combined with the fact that some of these same "open on the web" articles don't even load properly when you DO open them, I stopped using this app months ago.

    Not interested in an Apple news App. Apple is just too darn set on imposing its will on all things Apple to be able to trust that the news is not filtered based on Apple's idea of political correctness.

    I use this app several times every day. I hope a version is coming for my MAC. I still use Flipboard too since News is only on my portables but so far so good. I don't need it pointed out that its not perfect but really, its plenty good for the times I use it in the morning with coffee and in the afternoon waiting on kids.

    Settings-News-Show Story Previews...turn it off. It will load the story right in the News app.

    Unfortunately true. It's the same reason I don't use Facebook for news reading (or at all), I simply don't know and can't know all the criteria that create the feed.

    Still, I'm playing with it. Most important request: release it everywhere. It's really annoying I had to switch my location and now I'm stuck with miles instead of km.

    I REALLY wish there was a desktop version of this so you could edit and fine-tune the sources with more screen real estate.

    Great news! I love the News app and is one of the most frequently used Apple apps for me. Plus, I've already sent Apple feedback on bringing the News app to the Mac, which I really hope they do.

    I thought that is what this article is about. That everyone will now be able to create richly formatted native articles rather than descriptions and links.

    What app is stuck in miles? If it's Apple Maps you can change it in Settings.

    Why did they choose such a stupid headline to feature in the promo pic? EVERYONE has heard of the number 2. Degrees are a unit of measurement. Adding a degree sign after the number 2 doesn't make it an entirely different, seemingly unknown, number.

    Loads fast on my phone. Maybe you should move up to an iPhone 4 or improve your wireless/wifi connection?

    Poorly written blurbs and click bait haven't made Apple News a go-to app for me yet.
