My go-to app for news I read it everyday although sometimes I don't have enough time in the morning to browse through all the headlines. It'd be nice if the headlines in the preview were complete and not cut off by ... Having to click on an article just to know the conplete headline wastes so much time.

Michael Shim

Main screen displays twice What was improved on the main screen? Just displays twice and very annoying. Still can't download images while scheduled updates!

Chen Xin

Very good This is a good way for me to learn English.

David Antonio Mondragón Ramírez

Amazing I like this application for android :)

Dominick Goertzen

Horoscopes I only use it for the horoscopes, but I suggest the app. It's good to have local news too.

Kelvin Fraites

Keeps nagging for review... Although I already reviewed it! Great offline reader. No frills, but works well. Occasionally an article displays a smaller font that can't be enlarged. Please add an option for "already reviewed application".

Peter B

Fails often Newest update today and still displays blank stories. Pathetic that a news app can't provide text.

P.F.H. Lai

Unable to use this app offline Can't read any news articles while riding the ttc subway

Ajit Grewal

Repeats horoscope for days, weekend news is not updated.

Gerry Meade

Metro. News The format used in showing various news items is super

Randy Dumas

Best news app Love it. It keeps me up to date

Kingsley Munongo

Murphy Kingsley Awesome app 100% very accurate and convenient

Jasmina Goudge

Good ap Informs you about the news. Sometimes the articles overlap which is dumb. Overall satisfied. Definitely a time killer.

Steve Parsons

Overall a good news site. A bit disappointed of the duplicated stories in local overlapped with top stories. However, I do get articles here that no one else in the msm covers.

kris s

Awesome app Love this app lots of content to read, works great and looks good

Hani Dayeh

Offline download Very good app, but does not perform the Offline download. Please fix.

Cullen MacDonald

Simple, easy, informative. Good layout, doesn't seem to crash. Easy to navigate, and updates quickly. All you could want from a mobile news app, assuming you like to read what metro publishes.

Shelby Nolan

Metro news apps Love it no need to waste paper for to look at horoscopes :)

Nico Bock

Very useful Better than the paper version. Reliable and with good content.

Hannah He

Love it I don't have to go outside every time I want it

Jeffrey Theriault

Good app Wish it was updated more often with new content.

Stanley Vainik

There is always old news and sport articles for days instead of new articles and sport news every day if this is fixed i will give you a much better rating

Brian Elliott

Metro news Local news from across Canada, awesome!

Priyanka Rai

Gr8 one I love to catch up with local news on my commute..just love this.

Manav Sharma

Metro Can't live without my metro

Joel Bansil

Great Metro newspaper ? on the go. Save the planet by conserving paper. I recommend the "flip pages" to add the real newspaper appeal.

Bogdan Spineanu

latest version pretty good smooth interface, wish it would work landscape mode, needs some refinment on graphics

Grady Fagan

I usually only use this app for the horoscope, which is very accurate. The layout of the app is very easy to use to view news stories, which are always up to date with both local and international affairs. Overall this is a great app that I will always have on my phone. And if I don't have my phone on me I can just pick up a paper on any block in Calgary!

Sequoia Thom

Does not rotate Nice layout and great content. But on my Galaxy Note 2 it does not rotate to landscape view which makes it much harder to read.

Ian Atkinson

A bit slow. Good on a bus ride.

J Connell

Arg Stop asking me to rate this stupid ap!

Steven Long

Yes Yes, do it. What are you afraid of?

Marco LoPresti

Easy to stay up to date Very useful app to get current affairs for local and global community.

Miguel Veliz

Easy download Very easy to download

Gerold Russello

Sudoku answers wrong The sudoku post is wrong. Even the numbers that are pre written are wrong. You posted a totally different puzzle. The date matches though. March 24 2015

Joe Rider

Great little app. We'll laid out and stable.

Mehreen Shahid

Missing features include breaking news alerts

PeterPam Lynch

Excellent Nice work...easy and compact

Рамис Казиев

Were is Russia?

Пользователь Google

One s Greate app. Add Moscow and Russian language please.

Пользователь Google

MOSCOW Please add Moscow city and russian language.

Пользователь Google

Language! Please add Moscow and Russian language.

Пользователь Google

Moscow I need Moscow!!!!)))) Please, add Moscow!!))

Jim Stuart

Excellent Metro is a great news source. It would be good to have a "Breaking News" ticker running along the top.

Benjamin Bawdon

Very Good I have always enjoyed the Metro. They have a nice selection and this appeal works seamlessly between stories. Something that the CBC could try or all those pay to view papers are forcing on us.

B.J. Laybolt

Bad app When i try to reload it i get a black screen it freezes all the time i have tried to delete and reinstall that dont work and some of the articals are blank

Curtis Ransford

Almost there The app is clean and is sort of interesting as an alternative to the paper. However the biggest annoyance is the ugly way different sections are handled. I wish you could choose which sections are added into, let's say, "your paper" section. Instead of fiddling through a sort of clunky/slow and odd interface. Other than that, sizeable text is a huge +++

Trinh Ha

Not many updates in news. Easy to use

Tammy Corkum

Excellent I like how easy it is to scan quickly over after a busy day

Rosa Leah

Location No longer has any saskatchewan locatiins

Ajit Grewal

Up date for news is not done for days same horoscope for days without changing...

Skyler Azzuolo

Good app There when I want news

Reynaldo Vasconcelos

Great Job Great job overall. A breaking news feed running would make it a 5 star.

Gary K

It will reload twice very bothersome.

Roger Duquette

Like it! Easy to use and navigate

Nora L Brown

Great when you're on the go!

Gurpreet Grover

The best Daily routine

mario kent taylor

Kentz This app is awesome.Works perfectly and I get all the News I need.

Melissa Weir

Best and most up to date

Tyra Beardy

Awesome news Love the horoscopes :) check it everyday!....

Linda W

Very good!

Nadira Ali

Love it! Good local coverage and it's free!

Shola Daramola

Very good source of local news.

Tim Mathews

Uninstalled With every click of an article comes a full page ad...and it's the same one. I wish outfits like this would give an option to pay xx dollars to stop popups

Simon Sharpe

Not much good on Android tablets On my Nexus 9 it is locked in portrait mode, on iPad it autorotates. Did you guys set out to do a less complete job on Android?

Dan L Fornasier

Wish the Android version were better Edit: Sorry, it IS big deal. After many attempts, not a single article in World category is displaying. Just headers and pictures, no story. ---------- Large percentage of articles show only full page picture, and no text. Not a big deal, but then the ever-present blinking, flashing,infuriating advertising pop-up covers the caption. Really annoying. I actively avoid any advertised product that throws itself in my face like that.

Charlie Lever

Good app Still having isolated problems with some news items not redrawing properly. These items will load the picture, but not the text.

Graham Black

Not intended for tablets 1/4 of all the articles are unavailable to read on tablets. The page simply does not scroll

Marc Heuman

Terrible update - nonstop ads Very, very difficult to read articles since the app shows a full page ad EVERY TIME you click or swipe. It's free, and I don't mind occasional ads, but wow... Twice on loading and after every interaction. Too much!

Christian Artin

No more Montreal content? Seriously? You guys suck. Not even a single notification about it. The app just stops working and says "no internet connection". How about i treat your like you treat your customers? As garbage. Just like your app.

Howard Ayee

Garbage, and a waste of my time. It didn't even get past choosing my city! Had to uninstall.

Hartley B Singer

app doesnt work.. fix it please unless it's supposed to not load sections, crash, and only show same ad before crashing that is ...

Melanie Blain

Not quite functional This app works much better on android phones than tablets. The articles are locked in portrait mode, and whenever there's a picture to take up the entire screen, I can't scroll down to the actual article. What's the point of a newspaper app if I can't read its articles?

Eleni Alexopoulos

It simply doesn't scroll half the time and you only get the picture. Also you can't turn the tablet sideways for a larger page

Ebow Amoah-Gyampoh

Free News Great app . Only wish it had more daily articles

Samantha Bruce

Keeps crashing. Won't load sections. Please fix. I used to love this app, but now all it does is crash, and not load sections. Please fix!

Louis Mathurin

Bblou Tired of stories that won't open. Always seems to be the good or interesting ones.

shane lin

reinstall will fix problem I did as Patti said, to uninstall and install. it works great now. Thank you

Naf Nikufesin

The ads are way too frequent, annoying, and intrusive. I get it's a free app, but if you go overkill on the ads, you drive us away. Delete.

Bill Ellis

I enjoy the paper version put like this even more.

Patti Christiansen

I read this every day. When it gives me troubles I uninstall and reinstall right away. Works GREAT.

Krish Mani

Too many ads Can you believe that there is one ad for one news just takes the focus away from news

Kallus Maximus

Metro app hasn't worked since lollipop.Still won't. This should have five stars.It gets one because of the developers who screwed up a perfectly fine app.get your s*** together.Flagships mean nothing if you can't support your own apps.Incompetent.

George Young

The usual ad complaint Latest version has far too many pop-up ads. Each swipe to the next article causes the same MacEwan ad to pop-up over and over and over again, ad nauseam. Deleting app now of course.

Ryan V

Great for local news Use it as one of my regular news apps

Adrian whitty

Not bad Pretty good app. Except sometimes it says I have no connection and won't load even tho my connection is fine

Larry Downing

Not a great app Full page ad appears every single time that the app is opened. Lot of the news content is stagnant and does not update. What's the point of reading the news on a daily basis and not getting current content? Uninstalled the app and will not use it anymore.

Abhinav Shrivastava

Good Good coverage and well documented.

Kim Wright

Metro news Needs the puzzles that are in the paper and it should match what is in the paper.

David Graff

Seems to be working OK now after a month of constant failure. Back to regular operations.

Will Luipasco

Better than the journal Good app but the stories are lacking and way too many adds.

Peter Plut

Good app Easy to use. Never crashes. Would have put 5 stars if it didnt bug me to rate it so often.

Charles Veljkovic

Its no pulse Why stop us from viewing older items offline and force us to go online to update items????????

Sarbjit Singh

Almost useless Every single time i open the app a full page ad is shown. If i try to click a news article just the picture is shown with no text to read. And its not updated frequently being a news app. Useless

Marc-André Lécuyer

Can't load news, Montreal, nexus 5 Can't load any news since a few days ago...

Kumaresh Champaneri

Gives latest and up to date news

Frederic B.

No more Montreal Not sure why they removed it, since the content still exists - no explanation

Marco LoPresti

Easy to stay up to date Very useful app to get current affairs for local and global community.

Abhed Patil

Watch ADs or NEWS With every click there is a full page of advertisement. Used to be good, don't recommend anymore.

Graham Black

Not intended for tablets 1/4 of all the articles are unavailable to read on tablets. The page simply does not scroll. Ads also pop up every 30 seconds now.

Ariel Lezcano Martinez

My number one option for news My free time reading news anywhere I go is this app... Just missing to be able to open the pictures that came with the articles, too small to watch on my phone screen as they show now (you could allow to open it and protect it from download it)... Fix the problem with the initial add pop-up image, is annoying have it with every new screen opening

Jansenio Amado

Too much annoying ads out of a sudden. I just noticed (for the first time in years) that it's impossible to read any article unless I close the ads frequently. In other words, I will spend more time trying to close these annoying ads rather than enjoying the news. Sadly I am going restart grabbing a free hard copy every morning again. And surely I am going to uninstall this app. It used to be my favourite though.

Sara Lake

Sometimes it works great and then every so often I will get bombarded with an ad every time it's hard to even read the article. Also it starts crashing and then I have no choice but to uninstall and reinstall.

Alex Redpath

Ad filled garbage Old version would only pop an ad in once in a while. Now it is happening with every article as well as on startup. Why did you break a decent app metro? Good job, you've lost my readership.

Lucky Chingi

Uninstalled No bug fixes or performance improvements. All BS. Every news opens a full page ad (as if the footer ad was not enough).

Tim Keddy

Garbage!!!!! Don't install on android device, have attempted to on 3 different android operating systems-would not load/open-i will take my chances on finding a print edition-APP SUCKS!!!!!

Louisa Crayon

So so This app is still not working well on my android devices. Tablet will only load pictures and my phone often can't display part of the article. The constant ads are annoying especially when they pop up multiple times when reading the same article. More work needs to be done.

Ilya Makaroff

Uhhhmmm What's up witj advertising popping up every 15 seconds? 1 star till it is fixed. Given fact that paper copy can be picked for free, this ad nonsense is not acceptable. Will only run it after update. Useful update, I hope...

Kayla Crowe

It's annoying that the same pop-up add pops up every time you click something and it crashes if you click things and go back to click something else.. Probably because of the pop ups

Amanda Lake-Cormier

Consisting advertising sucks!!! I had 4 stars. I just edited my rating because now every single time I scroll to a new article I get an ad. Very annoying!!

Lawrence Peddie

Ads are really annoying I use this app on the subway, having it download the day's edition before I leave for work in the morning. Everything is great, until the subway goes above ground and my data plan kicks in again. That's when the popup ads start, and won't go away. I don't suggest using this app with a data connection!

John Smith

Works well! I like this app because the layout is soo easy.

Colin MacLeod

Way to may ads...before every article is a bit excessive

Steve Chepurny

Too many ads! Bug in app. It's unusable now.

Joshua Jessome-Warrington

Ads Can't go to any articles without constant pop-ups from CIBC.

jaem bawx

Good but.. Needs more customizable offline options (to choose which categories you like to download regularly) and archive management (like file sizes), but overall good for local news. No landscape support and limited tablet optimization. Navigation between sections could be better.

Junn Bryan Trongcoso

Offline reading fails Update: Still can't update reliably in the morning for offline reading in the subway. Can't seem to find a use for it since it can't do that.

Michael Cerkiewicz

Due to pop up ad every 10 sec's ... if there was a rating of zero this app would get it

Jette Sandee

I really enjoy Metro but... The first page will not load for me not matter what! The most important story? It's frustrating. It would be 5 stars except for this.


Annoying Your app functions. Please stop nagging me to rate it after I've already rated it once already.

Curtis Peterson

Used to be good No longer auto downloads at specified time

A Google User

Very readable Brings the experience closer to the paper. Still has some control issues, especially with the thumbnail bar at the bottom of stories. Good to read with a coffee in one hand.

John Barnes

Slow The pages take so long to open and when they do you only get story but no pictures

Phil Couto

I am constantly flying for work and I love that I can read countless articles offline, a feature most news Apps lack

Mario Beauchamp

Can't access all articles Sometimes the picture takes my whole 10.2 inch screen and I can read the article. I'm on a Sony Z2 tablet. It works well on my Nexus 6P. Could be a resolution issue.

Frank Hadzalic

Text Resize Thx, thx, thx. You made these old cataract infused eyes very happy. I got it set to MAX.

Kevin Scott

Metro Local news from Halifax. Carries some good stories of the local community.

darrin klassen

Love it No glitches as of yet and I like it's simplicity. Lots of options across Canada. Solid 5 guys

bob matheson

Just ok The constant full page ad pop up is very annoying.... there is also no longer an automotive section with this news outlet...

Ingrid Konrad

New version is terrible Should have left well enough alone. The new version is swarming with bugs. I can't read an entire story through without it switching to another story and if I go back to read the previous story it goes back to the top instead of staying were I left off. Please restore to previous version, there wasn't anything wrong with it so why change it?

Thomas Dickinson

New version is awful Horrible user interface has placed all of the buttons you use the most as far away from your fingers as possible. Also, pressing the 'back' button on my phone no longer goes back - it exits the app completely. THAT'S WHY ANDROIDS HAVE BOTH A 'BACK' BUTTON AND A 'HOME' BUTTON BUILT INTO THE F#$&ING PHONE! Whover redesigned this app should be fired.

Will Luipasco

New version of app has many bugs Very left leaning "news" aggregate. Very little original content and it seems the new editor is Rachel Notley. If you're looking for unbiased journalism look elsewhere.

Holly Knapp

Used to be decent My primary reason for having this app is to read the news offline. Since the app no longer has the option to auto-download content if I don't remember to do it manually I'm not able to use it. Also various other interface changes make the app a pain to use.

A Google User

Disappointment again with the new update Again, thumbs up to the UI. Thumbs down to articles not staying loaded after downloading for Offline reading. Also, back button doesn't take you back to the previous screen like every other app, instead it closes the app.

Kash Iq

New update is bad ? More advertisements, and normally pressing back button gets rid of the ad on screen, now the back button exits the app. Very annoying to keep opening the app, again and again. Interface is better than before but usability has gone down. Enough for me to delete this app. Cheers.

Matt Grove

Poor Tried the latest version. Amazingly, it's even worse! The back button closes the app rather than actually going back to the previous menu. Who did they hire to test this app? How can you forget to implement proper button functionality?

Kelvin Fraites

Please fix "back button" issue! In previous versions of this app, my phone's back button would step me back to the previous screen within the app. Now with the new version, it kicks me out of the app! I know that the "back button" at the top left corner will navigate me back, but getting back the old functionality would be nice.

Marcus Jones

Garbage! This used to be a great app, but with each update it becomes more and more unbearable. An ad every time I read and exit an article, ads at the bottom of the screen, ads between articles, ads ads ads. Unusable. Uninstalling this garbage.

Wahiche The

Basic news app with one major flaw Overall this delivers news as expected. The one thing that needs to get fixed is the soft key back button should not close the app if you are in an article but should go back to previous list of news.

Dan Hiebert

New version has problems I like the look and feel of what you're going for. Who in their right mind thought using the "back" button as the close button was a good idea??? I've close the app so many times by accident. I will no longer use until that it fixed.

Yousef Hasan

After the new update...? News content is good, sometimes the Authors bias comes out. But the UI is sooooooo bugged. Also, back button?? I dont need 2 home buttons on my phone.

matt cohen

Latest Version is Terrible As the headline suggests, the latest version of this app has slowed down completely. I have also had a terrible time with so many pop-up ads coming up that I couldn't even read the news.

R Jennings

I still like the content, but auto download feature has been removedand WAYYY too many obtrusive ads. Very disappointed with this update and wish I could go back to the previous version!

gg g

Gg g It is the only downloaded news app which consumes too much battery power that I have to boost while browsing. Other news apps never ever need a booster. It appears there is inherent design flaw or bug which needs to be fixed in order to improve its performance.

Abhijit Paralikar

Terrible after latest update Back button closes the app! And you get to see annoying ads every 15 seconds! Like WTF! was the team high or something when working on the latest update!

Terrence Gonsalves

Terrible Update This app used to be good but breaking the back button and removing the auto content download are terrible decisions.

Bill Chauncey

Worse than the previous iteration Same as the others(back button, ads). Deleted it. Avoid. BBC for real world issues, Google Cards for the fluff/distractions.

A Google User

It's ok So it's just ok. Can't enlarge pictures. No zoom. Everytime you open it there's old articles requiring you to hit refresh to get new. Very little 'new' news. Just ok.

Martin Rayner

New version is a let down Scrolling through is difficult, I like that I can download for later viewing, but would rather have an auto download feature.

Sean Smith

Not a fan of the new update The new update has to many ads. Reading a article then a ad pops up. The old version had ads but not as many as the new app.

A. Craig Hill

Often It is not loading new stories and connection is often broken. Not impressed.

Andrew Song

Back button is reappy annoying. Pressing back button on the phone closes the app rather than going back to home page of app. Really inconvenient

can't copy text and take notes pretty much all other apps let you do this.

am m

Newest update is horrible Laggy, and awkward. Deleted. This was the only news app I had.

Dad Have to restart too much because i push back button to get back to stories.

A Google User

Pressing the back button in Android always brings you back to the Android home screen. It should allow you to leave the current article and go back to the previous screen.

Phillip Jensen

Buggy I hate that when I hit the "back button" on my android it exits the whole app instead of just closing the article.

Full page ads Way too many. App is almost unusable now.

Po-Lin Huang

Back button exits you Pressing the back button while reading a story takes you out of the app instead of the previous page.

Max Well

Ads, ads, ads Used to be a great app, but uninstalled after last update

Ryan Pierre

Great app to keep up to date with what's going on in your city.. check your daily horscopes too!

John D Watson

Keeps me in touch When away from Toronto I`m glad to know what's going on.

Excellent quick read news Like the quick read on relevant local stories. Keep it up Metro

Great app... Easy to find what you looking for.... Great design.... Love the layout... Don't change anything..

C Hung

Not always working offline

Carter Cash

Love it Keeps me connected to news when I am traveling
