Great news app Works well. Intuitive interface. Uncluttered. Excellent use of screen real estate. Maximum information and no waste padding. I have used for years. Finally paid to assuage conscience. Ads gone - brilliant.
Inaccurate, incomplete and annoying. Slow loading. Shows inaccurate weather for towns and/or villages up to 50Km away from current location. When weather does show, resulting weather and temps are often opposite of that shown (ie. today is sunny and dry - N&W called for rain all week). Bright, distracting and irrelevant pop-up ads. Weather hourly chart does not move or reflect weather activity. Stories (news, entertainment, etc) filled with half-truths and mis-information with no follow-up. Previous version was better, weatherwise.
News not getting updated since 24th Mar News not getting updated since 24th March for Indian content. Custom content getting updates but stale news dated 24th March for default content.
Flashing ads take up part of screen And the menu takes up another part - nearly 1/4 of the screen lost to this crap.
Xcellent App Best news app available.. Awesome. .... However a few updates later and 'exclude news source' us still not working. A strange thing has been happening in the last few days. Oops - My Bad, rebooted the phone prob went away
Flashing ads major distraction Flashing ad content at bottom of window is a huge annoyance and makes app fundamentally unusabe.
