Drains battery I decided to ditch this app as it was showing as a heavy battery user on my note 4. It's easy enough to put a shortcut straight to the website and only use battery while actually reading the news.
The Ultimate News App Love the features, presentation and design. You simply cannot go wrong. There's not a better app for news out there.
BBC News Useful up to date news, handy for catching up on bits you missed on live TV. Does have a problem loading from time to time, red circle just spins and goes no further. This is on wifi & 4G.
Poor real life experience When you open the app it downloads content. But then as you browse on the app it seems to re download everything again particularly thumbnails. Slow and wasteful of data and battery... why not use the cached stuff? If the mobile signal is poor you just get the progress wheel as it tries to download everything again. If NO signal then it's ok as it uses cached data. Really stupid why not only re download if not in cache like guardian app now
Not bad Still haven't got used to navigation after a few months. Is a bit too "clever" - let me choose what I want to see. Still persevering as hoping will be better than mobile site with time...but not yet.
Still has problems playing video The App goes from one of my favourite Apps to one of the most annoying. Have to touch to update stories. Videos will not play, even when connected to WiFi! I did give App two stars previously but since the latest update caused video to stop working it has been reduced to one star. Yes I tried uninstall and reinstall.
