Ui now over complicated and often hangs on buffering. Need a rollback, nothing wrong with the old version.
****Uprated to 5 stars now I know how to turn the Breaking News alert sound off**** I like this app BUT I don't like the noise it makes when a Breaking News story comes in. It makes me jump! Can I turn this off without putting phone on silent??
Great when it works but it only works 25% of the time. Tried to fix it on my end but the widget just keeps breaking and requires a reinstall to get it to work for another week.
The 6th October update now stops videos displaying in landscape view. Even when using the app in landscape view already, any video articles you open are changed to portrait view - can't view them when they are on their side, so please fix!
All click bait non-news stories. I absolutely detest the daily round up each day I want to decide what items interest me. Too many pointless videos, we can read it is a shame you can't be bothered to write anymore.
The app has got so much worse with offline & partial connectivity. Main time I want to use it is commuting on the tube, and most of the time existing content hasn't fully synced, or it tries to update when briefly on Wi-Fi, but when it doesn't complete articles that were previously available and were just being updated are left in an unreadable state.
