    it's grown on me. I use it more like how I use (or used to use) flipboard by following topics instead of specific publications, except I have subscribed to guardian UK so I don't have to leave the news app.

    I love the ad blockers that work in Safari, but News shows all the ads. So I don't use News.

    I use it every day instead of visiting the different sites in Safari. I like it a lot, and it's very fast to update in iOS 9.3.

    Downsides:
    - I've had NYT and Guardian articles about bombings and the like appear in my For You feed for some reason, when I stay away from negative stuff like that.
    - Some publications only put a description in their News article, meaning I have to go to the website (within News) to read the article, which isn't formatted so well. Most of the time I'll then open the article in Safari and use Reader, making that particular publication a bit pointless in News.

    I keep trying it but despite tweaking sources It's too us oriented. @newsrepublic is so muchbetter

    Not consciously. But every now and then it's been useful.

    Between clipboard and Google News...... Apple News was significantly underwhelming.

    google news works fine for me. haven't given the Apple News app much of a chance. i think it's a comfort thing; i've been using google news for so long, i don't have the desire to try something different.

    Not overly impressed, its OK but wouldn't be my go to app for news, I prefer the likes of BBC or CNN

    I've started using it a lot more lately. Partially treat it as an RSS reader, transferred most of my feedbin feeds over too. Like the 3D Touch support, and I do like their suggested articles so far, very relevant to my interests.

    I think it's great and it's my go-to news source now. Granted, I'm not much into news (I just like to check on things a couple times a week), but for that purpose it's pretty great.

    Not really sure why Apple is so late to the game with this, but it's definitely a stock app that I find useful.

    Use it daily. When I wake up I swipe left to the proactive screen and usually follow a routine. Among other things in Proactive to start my day I'll scroll the articles real quick. But yes most of my reading of the news throughout the day is Apple News for sure

    gave up on it, too cluttered and too much content is actually overwhelming

    went back to twitter as my news source

    Nope. To be fair I also deleted my Flipboard account. Both are really just a cluster****.

    Twitter is still the best.

    Use it daily. Find the interface to be nice and simple.

    A year later and no ... I find Flipboard and Google News more effective, for me.
