Totally stupid compared to the website. First of all, sometimes the tabs on your screen that tell how many questions you have cover up choice D, (what's the point of the question counter anyway?) so I have to slide just to see it. Then when you click "let's review", it doesn't even tell whether your answer is correct or not. Nor does it show the correct one. And last but not least, I cannot see the writing prompt. I switched to landscape mode & etc but even THAT doesn't help. Don't use.

On one hand a few years ago it was free to have e test about the article that you where reading. It was great 😣 but now you have to join a class to be able to take the quiz. On the ther hand it is the best reading app I've ever seen 😍 you can change the level of the content and enjoy reading. Tnx a lot.

This is a great place to read, explore, and find new interests. When I read articles, in like, the first 4 paragraphs, I get sucked in already. Sure, the search can be wonky, but that's fine.

This app is very intetesting. It has many articles about various categories. So just reading that is very awesome. What's more this app make me control difficulty of the articles. So we can make it easy or hard for my level. it gives me 6 levels. Especially if you learn English this app is good choice to improve your reading skills.

This is the most amazing resouce ever for social studies, current events, and topical, informational texts. The most brilliant aspect of Newsela's pieces (all of which are adapted from reputable sources like The Washington Post, The New York Times, etc.) is that all of the articles come in 5 DIFFERENT LEVELS. Amazing! And if arr fortunate enough to have Newsela-Pro, you are among the most fortunate of educators. All of the data one is able to collect and interpret is extremely useful and easily accessible by teachers. I love Newsela ABOVE ALL OTHERS!!

If students log out of the app then log back in, they get signed in as a guest. Even if students uninstall the app and log back in, they get signed in as guests. Additionally, the app inconsistently allows students to complete the Power Words activity offline. I like that teachers can still track time on task when students are using the app offline. Dates of student app use are not always accurately recorded for teachers.

I love this app. There's so much great thought provoking content. I especially like how the articles are written at different levels so they can be accessed by different kids of different ages and ability. I use it with my own kids and I'm always find myself saving articles for them.

You have to choose between two really bad things - the god awful website or the slightly less worse app. Text Cut-Off, 3/4 questions showing up, and the Binder is hidden away and hard to find for someone whos never used Newsela.

The process I had to go through in order to set up an account, create a class and add my students to it was incredibly hard and I had to try at least 3 times. Everything is excellent with the app

Unless your on a tablet or computer don't even bother with this app. I tried to do my assignment on my phone because my tablet died and I couldn't move on to the next question! And I had to get it done within the next 20 minutes whixh added more stress to my shoulders. So thanks Newsela for making me fail an article for your crappy phone version of your app.

This app is an example of how liberal politics and views are making their way into our school system. There are many fantastic non-political and thought-provoking stories that I use in my classroom side by side with totally liberally biased news articles. I use many of Newsela's articles to teach about how media tries to influence people by presenting a biased point of view.

Each time I tried to open a text set the app crashed. I love the website and Newsela as a service, but the app simply doesn't work.

USE THE WEBSITE! As others have said writing prompts don't show up and the multiple choice questions are clunky. Although the reading interface is better here it's not worth struggling on questions

I have a problem logging in☹ when I login, the message that "there was a problem logging in, please try again." is coming up. and back to login page. 😑😑😑😑😑

The website version of this app is fantastic, however the app is glitchy and has a hard to manage userface. Also, when I try to submit a writing piece it doesn't let me☹️. Use the website. Definitely.

it is a great app but it can honestly be improved by adding many other languages. That feature can make it for me the best application for reading.

jac. n. Jan 17, 2020     

I've had no problems with it. It is just like the website and it's just as easy to use. Only problem is that the app doesn't have a Microsoft login, meanwhile the website does.

Hi thanks you for helping me strengthen my reading skills by this amazing app. I was very disappointed when I wasn't be to take quizes after reading but now it's possible and I think I love this app" Newsela Student " much more than before .

I love this app so much, I keep using it to improve my reading skills. Thanks a lot. Hope one day would have automatic dictionary tool to search a word immediately. But it is very good still now.

Ani. H. May 22, 2021     

I would have gave it 5 stars BUT no because the app keep saying it dosen't work and it keeps loging me out please please please fix the app. Over all its a really good app and i really enjoy it and it gives me good grades.

Ste. A. Nov 26, 2019     

This is terrible. I can't sign in on the app. I used the same sign in info as my computer but I can't get on it on my phone. Newsela really needs to fix this.

Helpful no matter your reading level to keep informed. Dyslexia can be hard, this helps for me and my students read and communicate with others about current affairs.

Unfortunate Use for mobile when it comes to the writing process... ended up having a endless loading symbol... No draft progress was saved... Not acceptable
