Ads Ads seem to be taking up more space with each update. Just a suggestion - anyone with a paid for sky subscription should not have to see any ads. (Just sign in with your sky account to remove them.) After all, we're paying for Sky's services :)
Poor. Slow, clunky. Too many huge video thumbnails take up too much space. A lot of screen space wasted difficult to find things you want to read. Digest should be off as default. Tried to take notification survey but says I have no connection despite fully working wifi.
Shockingly dissappointed No widget? Ads everywhere? Slow loading new breaking news notifications? Back to alternative news app now. Such a big company but no ambition to please android customers. Since putting this up and skys response... its so much better and includes widget for easier updates.
"NO-SOUND" NOTIFICATIONS Since a recent Update, the Sound on the "Breaking News Alert" has ceased to operate. I mentioned my annoyance at this in the Notification Survey I completed for Sky News last Friday. It's still not working. A "Breaking News Alert" implies there will be a Sound to make you aware something needs your immediate attention. This was the News App's best feature.
Clunky, slow, and biased Breaking news notifications which you can't fully read in the drop down window and aren't yet on the website when you click through (a lot of the items given notifications are for nothing stories anyway). App itself is slow to update. Blanket use of ads prior to video content leads to some thoroughly inappropriate instances. The level of bias, particularly in their Brexit and US political reporting is beyond a joke now. Avoid.
Permissions requested out of context This app requests storage and location on launch, but neither are required for using the app. There is no notice why they are requested so deny them! Fix the permissions implementation to use best practices!
Fixed: An issue that was causing the app to crash after upgrading to the latest version.
New: Introducing Digest, a summary of the main news stories delivered to your device twice a day.
Fixed: Videos work again on Huawei devices.
