5.0 out of 5 stars This is a remarkable app December 30, 2011

First, I was pleasantly surprised you don't need a subscription. Second, this app has just about everything you'd find in the paper version. The navigation of sections is very simple, pictures are sharp, and the articles are easy to read as it's all optimized for the Fire. Scrolling through articles within a section is as simple as turning a page in a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! December 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
The app is beautiful and well designed. It takes full advantage of the Fire's bigger screen and shows what's possible when a developer decides to make something special for the Fire. I hope apps like these are a preview of what's to come; an app designed specifically for smaller tablets.

1.0 out of 5 stars Screws up your Kindle Fire July 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
This app stores huge amounts of data which will seriously impact the operation of your Kindle Fire. Discovered that mine was holding over 700mb. I deleted it and all is well again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks great on Kindle Fire! January 14, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a must-have app for the Kindle Fire. You get access to all of the USA Today sections in full-color. News, Money, Sports, Life, YourLife, Tech, and Travel -- the entire USA Today experience in a single app.

The stories look great and are easy to navigate. The pictures are full-color and crisp. You can share stories via Facebook or email.

I've only spotted a single advertisement that appears as the app first starts. Other than that, the rest of the stories appear to be ad-free.

About the only problem I've spotted, and it's pretty minor, is the lack of a search feature. The magnifying glass appears on the bottom toolbar but doesn't do anything.

If you install the app and like it, please send feedback to USA Today. On the bottom toolbar, there is a menu button. Touch it then touch the feedback button. I sent them a note saying thank you for this awesome app.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality News App December 26, 2011
Verified Purchase
Finally, a worthwhile and well functioning news app. I'd rather this app was put in the Newsstand bar rather than the App bar, but the app functions perfectly and has a wide range of news. Best of all, it's free! I would recommend a download.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uninstalled February 29, 2012

Used to work but now crashes every single time I use it. Too bad -- it was a great app when it worked. But there's no point in keeping an app that constantly fails.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome December 27, 2011
Verified Purchase
Finally released for the Kindle Fire. I love it, but wish they would add the "viewers polls" like they have on the IPad version. Till then I am just giving it 4 stars. I love to read the USA today every day with my coffee.

1.0 out of 5 stars bias
USA today is too liberal. Not balanced but always bias in the Democrats direction, progressive and socialist. Wish they would get Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity articles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great, except for the pop up.
The app is fine and the news stories appropriate. The only negative is the pop up that comes with every story asking you to share. It moves all over and is always in the way. Read more
