  • Great information

    by CL used

    You seem to have something for everyone. Easily accessible and never any loading issues.

  • So much crashing.

    by Renee'Marie

    I love this app so much when it works. The app pretty much crashes every time it is opened. But content wise it's probably one of my favorite apps.

  • Love love!

    by Zachhhh!

    I love the content buzzfeed provides. Buzz feed keeps me up-to-date on trending videos and news articles. I couldn't live without it.

  • Awesome

  • Obsessed

    by Breezy.Shores

    I check Buzzfeed probably 20 times a day. I am always sharing crazy and interesting articles, lists, and quizzes with my friends. It's safe to say this is my go to place for news!!

  • Addicting

    by Adeberry

    Addicting! Just wish more content was supported so I could read more articles

  • Love It!

    by MeOra54

  • Great great! But...

    by Emm Sh.

    Loved this app for a while now. However there appears to be a slight problem where when I enter the homepage I come across "Oops, something went wrong" when my wifi connection is perfectly fine. Reinstalled 3 times already and problem is persistent. Please fix?

  • Good app

    by Come on Netflix!

    I am on this app everyday. I would give 5 stars but I don't have the option to pin some articles. I can Facebook or tweet each one but only some can be pinned. I have to open in safari to pin. That's the only annoying part.

  • Fantastic

    by Stephanie Wall

    This is basically how I get my news anymore. That or I read endless amounts of lists!

  • Needs fixing ...

    by Huronnative

    It upsets me to not be able to post comments to articles. I'd be better off going to the site than using the mobile app.

  • Interesting survey app

    by Mimi leal

    Can't take this or myself too seriously...

    by Quasia Wilsom

    Hi My name is Quasia Wilson, and I'm writing you today to tell you a little bit about myself. I was born with a really rare genetic disorder called Morquio Syndrome also known as MPS IVB (4B). I was born with this disorder, but didn't get officially diagnosed until I was 10 years old. I don't have enough of an enzyme so sugars can build up in my organs, and on my bones. Morquio is so rare that only 1 in every 75,000 infants are born with it. I have type B which is even rare, 1in every twenty infants born with Morquio, are born with type B. Morquio causes me to be really short, I'm currently 4'3, and I've stopped growing. The sugars have built up around my hip sockets, and have worn down my hips... When I was 12 years old, I had a major reconstructive hip surgery. The surgery did not correct my hips so now I'm left with almost nothing in my hip sockets. Well enough about the "sad stuff". I'm 14 years old and I'm in 9th grade, and I love to make people laugh, even if I'm not in a bad mood. I love to smile... I hope to major in fashion design. I want to inspire people through my battle. I've met so many amazing people From my Morquio family. I've met people who I can relate to, who actually know what I'm going through. I've met so many fabulous people from my Make-A-Wish trip. From the Make-A-Wish volunteers, theat helped to get my wish granted. (Which was a shopping spree on Rodeo Drive) to the people that I met on Rodeo Drive... I went to Louis Vuitton, Guess, and last but never the least I went to Chanel. Everybody from my trip made it amazing, and I'll never forget it. I made a great friend, Jason from Chanel, he's fabulous. We stay in touch by email. I love my family, my Aunt does everything for me... If I need something, she fights and fights until I have it. I love my brother he helps me with whatever I need. I love my grandma she's helps me with whatever I need when it go down to her house. And I love my cousins, uncle, dad, uncles girlfriend, they get me whatever I need. Remember everybody, you're fabulous in your own way, and don't let anybody tell you different. Sincerely, Quasia Wilson Sent from my iPad

  • Meh

    by Luzzzzzeerrrr

    It's an okay app for what is a terrific website. I love coming on here for the random fun lists but it's irritating when more than half of the good ones are videos or nothing but slow gifs that don't work. Also, enough with the 90's. I love them just as much as anybody but if I see one more picture of Surge, I'm going to vomit. Also, why bother making articles for the app if the content isn't available for this platform? Aaannnddd, the links aren't working for me both on app and mobile site.

  • Can't leave comment

    by Sylvie1988

    I can't leave comment or contributions on my phone. Dont know whether it's just me or something, but it's very inconvenient to track my readings. Beside that, Buzzfeed is great!

  • Best thing since the internet

    by Sum182crazi

    It's got everything and more. Best website and best app. Download it now you'll never be bored again.

  • Good app

    by btash07

    App works well!

  • Not worth my time

    by McDuff49

    First steps allow you to customize what you do and do not want to see.. I did minimize celebrity news and maximize world / politics. All of my feed was celebrity news. Ehh, I'll stick to actual news apps..

  • Crashes all the time

    by SeanNYY52

    Can't go a few minutes without crashing, needs to be fixed!

  • Biased content

    by PeteX12345

    Just by looking at what has been said about Winter Olympics you can tell this is totally biased. Try to be objective selecting balanced content. Let opinion to readers, not good to manipulate them.

  • Boring and Repetitive Content

    by Lazaad

    Rarely anything original or unique from BuzzFeed. Their articles aren't informed just mindlessly trendy. And On the off-chance they do run something funny, they'll rehash the same joke 67 times

  • Too Liberal

    by SSHORT42410

    I love the website, the app works great, but I'm tired of the articles continuously mocking my beliefs. Even with the option for a feed specific to my tastes, the first thing you see is the Buzzfeed feed- which has a lot of articles that I do not care for. Surprise Buzzfeed, there are young, educated conservative Christians who like a good laugh! Stop mocking me!


    by Kwragan

    I used to love this app but now for some reason when I click on an article it only shows me the number of likes, the title of the article, and the person who wrote it. It does not have the article and I don't know how to fix it. :-(

  • Won't work

    by Ed trainerzz

    I cannot see anything other than contributions and ratings. It needs to be fixed.

  • Doesn't load content

    by Brooklynnx

    The app would be great if it actually worked and loaded the content on the page. Instead, it is mostly blank with just the contributing comments.

  • nothing shows up

    by Amber Lawson

    on the mobile app and internet browser no content shows up......might need to fix that

  • Buzzfail

    by gotohellathena

    App never displays articles. Crashes frequently.

  • Used to love it

    by JuanitaRamirez

    I love this website and used the app everyday. Very entertaining. However ever since the last update it's fidgety and for the last week it crashes EVERY time I try to use it. So disappointed.

  • Disappointed.

    by Lisseth389

    The app crashes every time I try to access my bookmarks. The gifs are really slow. The website is so awesome. Can u please fix!?

  • Piece of trash

    by SaltyDog77

    I wanted news. I got nothing but trash, fluff, distractions and perversion.

  • Crashes

    by Merkedis

    The app crashes sooo much. It's annoying.

  • New update crashes frequently

    by MNJetter

    The only difference I can see between the previous update and the current one is that the current one crashes at the slightest provocation.

  • Why ?!


    Am I unable to take a quiz ? I click to the page, and there's no option to take it. Just a dead billboard with the ability to post my untaken quiz ?!

  • Not for me

    by Anna 1981

    Basically a copy of Huffington Post .

  • keeps crashing

    by Penny Turner

    and I'm in French class and i really can't stand another minute of it so if y'all can fix this bug, I'll be very grateful.

  • Disappointed with interests

    by Teepopper

    When opening my Buzzfeed acct., I purposely left off celebrities and entertainment as one category I would be interested in. Now 50% of articles are about the very thing I don't care about. Why even ask in the first place.

  • compatible

    by canoangel

    i have an ipod touch 4 but i like buzzfeed news i would give it 5 stars but it isnt compatible for ios 6 and up i hope u change it

  • Bugs

    by Peter Cotten Tail

    I was able to open it to take the quiz but after that the best it would do is maybe pull up the main page and freeze there.

  • Some videos won't play??

    by RoeLuv

    How can there be an app in the App Store, yet I get messages saying "not available on your platform" please fix this, then I'll give this app 4 stars

  • Crashes

    by Sean Juarez

    This app does not even work anymore. It crashes right when you attempt to open it.

  • How bout' not going back to home

    by Jael_lew

    It would be great if I didn't have to start ALL the way over whenever I come back to the app from background.

  • Crashes

    by Person that luvs music

    Great app, but every time I try to open it, it crashes

  • Constantly crashing.

    by Pavel Repin

  • Crashes!

    by LizzieSmalls23

    It keeps crashing on launch after the update. Please fix.

  • The best

    by iBoonie

    I wish there was a place on the Mobil app that I could suggest a topic for an article as I don't have time to write something myself. Lol But I really love this app a ton! It's my favorite
