Review Google Play Newsstand

Enozia Vakil
7.2Good
Various features, convenient interface, neat design
Lags a bit, features ads
Amidst all the news applications available out there from the trusted developers, ever yearned for something more official?
First things first - the interface. Sporting a convenient design with all the color-coded topics neatly laid out on a topic wise layout, there is a menu that displays settings, bookmarks, downloaded content, help and feedback options by sliding in from the extreme left. And although I really liked the color-coded idea, I found to my dismay that the color-coded layout was just an excuse to not include themes. But since that isn’t anything major, we can rule that out as a drawback.
The text clarity was great and scrolling through the pages was smooth, and although I did notice some funny scrolling behaviour, I’m not sure if it’s something that just I faced or is a bug. Then there’s options provided to share the news to social networks, bookmark the posts, save pages, and downloading only via wi-fi or downloading when charging to save battery and mobile data in settings. One another slight desire would be the possibility to zoom into text and providing option to change background in the news.
Overall, Google play newsstand provides what it should - a neat interface covering all topics and a well laid-out design. But including ads is something that most people would despise, that certainly does not work in its favor, making it a well-rounded app with both pros and cons.
