How do I find the WORLD News Group App?

Search Apple or Google Play Store for WORLD News Group with this icon:

Why did we change our app? Our previous magazine app was written with software that has become obsolete and incompatible with the editorial software we use to produce it. It was rejected by Apple forcing us to rewrite a newer version but we were forced to release it before it was completed. In the initial launch of this new app, we maintained the magazine reader version you are accustomed to. In this updated version we have added so much more! Our desire is to give you the opportunity to enjoy all of our content, not just our magazine. You can check out the latest headlines or listen to the podcast while checking out the latest cartoon. Please rest assured we are improving it everyday.

Known or Corrected Issues:

We are continuing to improve with every revision.  We do not have a way currently to notify you that there is an update in the store but we are working on that. You can easily open the app and select account tab at the bottom then select view account details to see what version you are on. You should be on:
Apple v.7.1 (Published Nov 23 2022)
Googleplay v. 7.1 (Published Nov 19 2022)
If not, go to the store and search for World News Group and it will have an update button.  Select that.  If you do not see an update button, please uninstall and reinstall the app.

How to login to the app:
