1.0 out of 5 stars Fills your Kindle Fire Gallery with Unwanted Images January 11, 2012
By Benn K
Verified Purchase
This app will fill your Kindle Fire Gallery with hundreds of news story thumbnails -- many of them creepy (photos of dictators, criminals in the news, political candidates). Uninstalling the AP Mobile app does not remove these images. You have to remove them manually in the Gallery. Also, the app is not smart enough to know when it already has a photo, so it will download the same one again and again and you may end up with 20 photos of Newt Gingrich like I did.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good content but January 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
Good content but it downloaded too many photos to my device. It was easy to delete them but it was just a hassle to have to do that. I'll stick with USA Today which has just as good of content but doesn't download the picts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great App! June 15, 2014
Verified Purchase
They may have fixed the issues with it downloading images mentioned in older reviews because I haven't had that at all. I've had this app on several devices for years and use it daily. I would give 5 stars if the headlines page were customizable; I don't need a solid 40% of the top stories to be about athletes and celebrities since I don't care about them. Otherwise, a solid app with no glitches so far!

5.0 out of 5 stars headlines of the day January 11, 2013
It is timely and well written. Better than TV news and faster. The coverage of the recent election was excellent.

If you accept this app you accept their permission request to use your camera and microphone without notifying you whenever they want.

What legitimate reason could they possibly have for wanting Permission to turn on your camera or your microphone without even telling you?

If you have this app on your device even if you are not currently using the app they might be watching you right now. You gave your permission.

Read the permissions section.
