It's been out for quite a while but are you still using it? Have you ever used it for any length of time?

I set it up originally and if I get a notification that looks interesting I'll read it. If I'm proactively looking for news by opening an app it's never the News app though. Honestly, I like how it aggregates several of my news sources but I never remember it's there.

I actually do use it. I don't spend a lot of time with it. I catch the highlights everyday and if something catches my interest I will dive in.

I'm trying to be more proactive in reading news so I've been using it pretty regularly of late. Before that, I watched the evening news like a Grandpa

I rarely look at the Apple News app, and have notifications off for it. I get most of my news from a list I created on Twitter that includes 122 news orgs., along with several newsletters I receive via email. I did use Apple News for a while, but it quickly became apparent the app didn't show the stories I wanted to read about. It was "what you see is what you get" and nothing else. So I just don't use it much at all.

I've actually started using it more and more lately. I forgot about it for a while but it really is a great application in that it combines the news I'm more interested in and I don't have to sort through the fluff.

The only news apps I use are TechCrunch and Flipboard. Maybe I'll have to give Apple News a second chance.

I never once used Apple news. I had actually forgot about it. Maybe I should set it up & give it a try one day when I'm bored.

I use it all the time!! All the news sources I frequent are in one place so there's no need for me to open up separate apps. Plus I haven't had to renew my WSJ subscription in a few months It always reminds me to subscribe but it never stops me from reading the article🤷🏾*♀️

I've used Feedly for the longest time.
Aggregates all my feeds from about 60 sources.
Good Luck

No surprise but this is pretty much how I use it as well. Like that it's there but don't look unless there's an alert.

I prefer Flipboard and Google Play Newsstand personally . Well designed fast apps , easier to use than Apple News

I'm afraid that I don't use it much at all,I did try it at first,but it is a bit too Americacentric (?) for me.
And it really needs a button for" Never show me information from this source again,are you mad !" And another one for "Murdoch Warning !!"

I use it several times a day. All of my news sources in one app. I don't have notifications set up though.

Yes I'm still using the Apple news app simply because it's there when I swipe left. It always has a few stories I don't mind reading so it does the job. I usually use twitter for the breaking news type things anyway.
