I don't know where this "unwanted photos in Gallery" thing comes from. Since I've gotten the app, I haven't had any such problems. The Associated Press app is very useful and well-made. It keeps me up to date with the latest news conveniently on my tablet, and the articles overall are informative, unbiased, and brief. I had to turn off the notifications, though, since they go off sporadically during the day, and can get a little irritating. Right now, this is one of the best apps on my tablet, and if you're looking to stay informed on topics of the day without paying for a subscription, Associated Press is the way to go.

This app will keep you current. It has a control that lets you turn off the pictures. Strongly recommend you use it.

It could be friendlier for people with visual problems. Night mode and choices for larger fonts would be good.

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.

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.
