1.0 out of 5 stars Fills your Kindle Fire Gallery with Unwanted Images January 11, 2012
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 good app March 17, 2013

This app beats having to pay NY Times after 10 articles. Though at times it is slow refreshing, and it isn't updated very often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless March 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
The AP is exceptional. I enjoy the format of the app. This news agency remains dedicated to reporting news and not giving biased reviews of events that will someday be history. Just reporting and allowing the reader to determine the opinion. They should become a TV news channel. Wait.... then again. that just might ruin it. Thanks
