THE ONLY NEWS APP YOU NEED 
With News Suite, you no longer have to visit multiple sites and apps to stay in the know. It organises articles from 1000s of feeds into two tabs so it’s easy to find what’s relevant to you. The “News” tab keeps you up to date on a wide range of current affairs, while the “My Feeds” tab brings you articles customised to your personal interests. We’ve partnered with the world’s most popular publications so there’s always new, quality content to engage you.

YOUR NEWS, TWO WAYS

-The “News” tab is where you can read up on a wide range of organised genres such as: General News, Entertainment, Sports, Food and more. 
-The “My Feeds” tab is where we bring you a personalised array of content based on your favourite topics.

CUSTOMISABLE 
Customising your “My Feeds” tab is simple. Just choose topics from the list or use our popular “Keyword Register” to enter the names of things like your favourite celebrities, companies, brands and where you live––we’ll give you all the latest news on them, in chronological order. 

KNOW NOW
-When you enable push notifications you’ll receive important news stories as soon as they develop. 
-With our ”Scheduled News” feature, you can customise push notifications for certain topics to appear periodically.

-Tips for Use- 
■ How to Read News from Your Own Country ■
By default, the region setting of your "News" tab is taken from the language and region settings of your device. For example, if your device’s language is set to “English (United States),” then news from the U.S. will be displayed. If you are unable to read news from the region you are staying in, you can use the method below to change the region setting.
* Please note this resets the app to its initial state, deleting all feeds and bookmarks which have been registered.
1. Choose "Menu">"Setting">"Other options">"Initialization"
* This will delete feeds and bookmarks which have been registered.
2. Restart News Suite
3. Select the link for "Terms of service" from the starting screen
4. Choose the region you stay in under "Select your language/region"
■ Setting Up Push Notifications ■
Users can receive periodic updates via push notifications with "Scheduled News," as well as push notifications for important news articles with "Additional feeds and other info of interest"
You can turn notifications on or off, and set timings, by selecting "Settings," followed by "Notifications," from the upper right menu.
■ For Xperia Users Wishing to Uninstall the App ■
If you wish to uninstall the app from your Xperia device, you may or may not be able to do so depending on your device's model. In such cases, you can go to "Settings," followed by "Apps," and then select "Disable."

    Useful and practical application which allows to read most of the interesting news at one place. However as a cons I would say that is missing "Copy" button when user for example wants to move a link somewhere else, not directly to the app. Also if should be considered to put more media as a source of the news.

    Some of the clickbait is so obviously fake. For instance, there will be a picture of someone like Phillip Schofield, and a vague headline implying they are in serious legal trouble. On top of that, the actual content is pretty much the same as all of the other news apps around. To make it worse, I can't remove the app from my 'phone. Also, you can't just click on most stories to read them, you've got to click on a story, then click on read more, so you've got two presses to open.

    Literally tracks your location to offer targeted ads. Major battery/radio use from this app which drains 1% battery per minute. Phone gets hot, 100% WiFi usage constantly, even when not opening articles... Why does a news app use this much data to load a few lines of text and small image previews? Because it's uploading data. Latest release is so resource heavy you can't even browse articles properly.

    Good layout, you get to read articles that would normally need subscriptions, update 1/1/2021 : took out 3 stars and Uninstalled , can't take out some obviously biased news sources from the feeds (us sun), data collection is becoming excessive for a news app

    There is no ability to exclude unwanted sources. There is also no way to report or exclude non-news or other unwanted articles. This leads to a feed that includes such ridiculous items as grown men playing children's games in front of cameras, astrology, otherwise unremarkable people who make a living telling stories, and the British royal family. These things have no place in a news feed, yet somehow I can't remove, report, filter, tag or otherwise avoid them. I'll go back to my RSS feeds.

    After the Oct 7 update this app is now less crashy and less laggy. All this while using this app has been a frustrating experience but I had no choice since I rely on it to get news from Japan. Good thing that it gets better now. I guess Sony has figured out how to make the app more efficient. Hopefully it will continue to improve from here on.

    I opened this app (for the first time in a while) after updating it just now. Immediately I realised why I don't use it anymore, because of the overwhelming amount of bloody ads! Despite the interesting news topics that you have access to it's so difficult to differentiate between the news itself and the advertising.

    Fake links now? So I could deal with the pop up ads that were starting to get a bit intrusive, but the fake links that don't connect with the thumbnails and just go to ads, well that's just plain shady. Great way to boost people's trust in news sites 👍. Edit- a week later and the fake link is STILL there. Does no one check your content at all? Does anyone there have any aspirations to a semblance of integrity or pride in your creation. Deleting app now.

    App has lots of sneakily placed ads. A lot of celebrity type articles compared to other news apps, also seems to have short articles targeted towards shorter attention spans. Mostly US- centric articles without any local content for my region (Canada) but somehow is able to have ads for businesses in my region. On the plus side doesn't crash much

    I really can't do without this app. Cutting-edge headlines, 24-7 and so accurate. I don't even need to buy a newspaper. While events are unfolding you can get an update of the story. I can often read one story and get a different newspapers perspective on events. Oh No. Please don't spoil this one.

    Not using it currently but have used it for some time earlier. It's an advertisement delivery app rather than a NEWS app. Thought I'd try it again but no improvement; it's cluttered, can't decide whether it wants to keep or cede control over what & how the content is to be delivered and has confusion all around. It also started bombing me with get quick rich scheme ads. Change the "Contains ads." to "Contains spam". Goodbye.

    This app was installed along with updates onto my Xperia 10 Plus. It started to send me notifications that I didn't want and ignored, and unfortunately hadn't had time to disable in the settings. Just now, the app sent me a notification which spoiled the newest episode of Game of Thrones only a few hours after it aired. I was about to watch it. This is unforgivable.

    It provides a lot of news articles to read, but doesn't appear to have the ability to remove specific news sources. So feeds may have stories from trash news writers which have become popular but have no bones to back it up. If you could block providers like you can on Google News then it'd be perfect.

    I have been using it for a long time, and certainly like it, however, the ads... They are getting quite annoying. I would be great if there was a way to remove them, like a paid version, or whatever. It would also be nice to sync it in between devices, but since there is no account required to use it, I can understand some limitations.

    Useful. You can reach different news from many media, so you have various journalistic writing and contrasting point of views. Furthermore, we can get quickly overwhelmed with some certains news apps notifications. But instead of that, News Suite provide informations, drop by drop, all along the day. Beyond compare.

    Having to uninstall this app now for the 3rd time as with all the cookie consents needed the app slows right down, on a fresh install app is rapid then after a couple of accept cookies app becomes absolutely hopeless ans slows down, every other app I use is no problem and its not memory problem either 15gb used out of 30 gb so it's not that, just an useless app that keeps asking for cookie consent and becomes absolutely useless, sort it out

    Too cluttered, too much space for pictures, not enough for text. And ads look deceptively like articles - you have to look hard to see the difference. This seems deliberate to generate more clicks, but it's deception and the main reason I am uninstalling.

    A very useful app. Alerting you to developments in a wide range of interests. Sometimes the headlines are misleading, but this is more the fault of the news source. The adverts can be distracting but overall this app keeps you up to date with the latest news.

    I can't believe it's Sony! It's all over the place. The default news sources are gutter press: sports, women and low-brow politics. It's over run by adverts and it's a nightmare to navigate. There's no filter option and it lacks any serious customisation options. Visually, it could do with a higher definition appearance, too.

    Far too many ads its getting to the point were the app doesn't work properly and you have to search for your news which is buried deep beneath the ads and fake malware invested adverts that are at the bottom of every news story. Also The UI is extremely outdate it's got to the point were sony no longer care about its users and instead force you to use half baked malware infected fake ads news reader that doesn't even give the news you ask for.

    I like using this app to read about the news during breakfast. It's nice that they feature more than one outlet so you can get better perspectives if the same idea, but it sorta repeats news and we dont get a lot of new ones everyday. Still, great app to use to read news

    This application does not appear to have a way of selecting from whom I receive my news from. As I'm not a fan of the mirror, independent, and Huffington post. If I did I would join the Socialist Labour Party or it's head office (Momentum or & Militant) news feeds as they seem to be the same outlet of bile.

    If you only read the Independent, Guardian, Evening Standard, Canary, or any other news source with the same political leaning, then this is the app for you. If you'd rather not live in a bubble, and prefer a more balanced assortment of news sources, then go elsewhere. There's no way to easily edit preferences (that I know of), hence the 1 star.

    I personally do not like this App. Every article you click on is nothing but unnecessary click bait. To read any article you always have to click next and next etc again. Why can't these articles actually be read in their entirety. Come on get rid of the click bait next format. It is frustrating, annoying and makes my blood boil.

    It's comprehensive & very responsive, but there are some areas need improved: it seems to be littered with taboola ad links, certain news sections don't seem to update (or take several days for any new articles to come through), move the 'Read Later' link to within the opened article & replace it with a time when the news article was published (so we can see new recent stories coming in on refresh).

    This is not (as stated) a good access for thousands of news sources in one easy app. It's simply the least imaginative selection of US sites, mixed with adds and the option to get news on favorite search terms (apparently, Sony thinks that "Sony" would be my favorite term). The deign was neither user friendly or inspiring. I added feeds but nothing showed up. Thankfully, I could uninstall this waste of disc space.

    ok ide, ok design, but just too many ads everywhere. Really irritating, and no payed ad-free version offered.

    The element of being able to add custom key words and usage of rss feeds are very convenient for interception of news that distinguishes articles from mainstream topics.

    Easy to use and navigate. News Suite provides reliable news from trusted sources.

    Great sub to Google News, but many ads. Would be willing to pay a monthly subscription to remove ads in Sony News Suite.
