  • Preferred the old format....

    By M_Gee
    Why are ads playing automatically now??? Not liking the new format at all....
  • Font size

    By smp332012
    Since the new update I am unable to make the font size larger. Hopefully this can be fixed in the next update.
  • Hate to tell you this way, but...

    By Peace2017
    I couldn’t find a way to tell the web developer that the app on my iPad keeps suddenly leaving the app and returning me to my iPad desktop. This has been happening for over a week. I have confirmed I have all the updates. And I even refreshed the app from the settings menu. This usually happens after I’ve finished reading an article and get returned to the previous page. Suddenly, the app shuts down. It also happens when I follow a link inside of an article. My iPad seems to be functioning well for all my other apps. Help! My day starts with a cup of coffee, my dog nestling in my lap... and reading USA Today. Hope this can be fixed. Oops! I also listen to music, which of course gets shut off because of video marketing. I realize that’s very important to you, but it’s irritating to me as a reader. Thanks for listening. Oops again. I thought I had signed up for ad free a long time ago. I was wrong, so I apologize. It’s interesting that now that I’ve signed up for ad free, the app seems to be operating just fine. ???
  • Covert Ads

    By no ads pls10
    Way too many covert ads under the guise of reviews. Example, top deals at Nordstrom.
  • Easy reading please

    By Terri Elaine
    Reading the great articles gets very unpleasant because the print is so small for my aging eyes. There seems to be know way to improve the print size. I’m asking you to please address this problem and make an improvement. Thank you!
  • Ads with volume very annoying

    By 1981dan
    I am not sure if this is a new feature or not, but as I was reading tonight and scrolling through the headlines an ad started autoplaying with a relatively loud volume. I am all about ad supported content but this makes it difficult to read in a quiet environment and may result in some choosing alternate news sources.
  • Ads with audio now playing automatically?

    By TZK MFL
    A new low. I’ve used this app almost daily since the first version 10 years ago. I accept the need for ads. But I tend to read the news while others around me, or while I’m waiting for my kids to fall asleep. Now, with these new ads that have loud and obnoxious audio that plays automatically and without warning, I’m waking my kids up while scrolling through headlines and I’m the center of attention when I’m in a quiet room (or worse killing time in a meeting). Note to the developer: Take some advice from Captain Obvious — no one wants to hear ads they don’t click on. Save them for the video stories.
  • App is user friendly - good upgrade

    By bkinvst
    Heavily biased content (left wing, PC bias) - wish there were at least a few news groups that were capable of just reporting facts without the personal biases. The App itself is good - user friendly. However, I rarely use it because of the constant insertion of far left bias
  • Video ads

    By hate auto videos
    I dont mind regular ads but I hate the video ads that start up automatically with a loud sound track blaring. If USA Today continues with auto running videos I will be deleting it.
  • Pretty good but don’t like disappearing title.

    I don’t like that the title disappears when scrolling down. Then when you reverse, you have to adjust in order not to miss something because it hides a couple of lines. Also I don’t like having to scroll up to get back to the headlines. Other than that (and the severe anti-Trump bias) the app is pretty good.
