The Associated Press, if you’re not familiar, is known as the world’s largest and oldest news-gathering organization. However, it does not have its own publication.Instead, you’ll find AP stories — from breaking to national and international news — in countless other publications and online.

The app puts all of the AP’s coverage in one place. You can customize it to provide local headlines and weather in your area, as well as save and share articles using social media.

AP Mobile is functional, if unremarkable. The menus are a bit clunky and unintuitive, but a small amount of trial and error will get you to where you need to go. The content is complete and up to date, but the app itself is painfully slow. Curiously, though you can change the font size with a setting buried deep within the menus, the app does not support touch controls for easy zooming and navigation.

Fine enough for news content, but this app lacks polish.
