News alert re-routing needed I like this app & it work's on my Huawei (re the message below.) The only problem is that when I get notifications about particular news stories & I click on them it takes me to the app home page & not the story. I have to then search for the story manually. I couldn't actually find one this morning that I was alerted about! Clicking on an alert should take you to that story.
Have always used the, Sky News App but sadly since I've got my new phone (Huawei) the videos on the app will not work. Despite me re-downloading the app the and rebooting the phone several times the videos will not work. Can anyone look in-to this issue with me? I would easily rate the app 5 stars if the videos work but as they don't I can (sadly) only rate the app 3 stars and will more than likely be deleting the app :(
Used to be good. The advert bar at the bottom is massively annoying! It's obviously put there to be clicked on by mistake when scrolling. Such a cheap trick Sky!!! Also the huge pause icon when playing a video takes forever to dissappear. Sometimes never actually get to see the very thing the video is supposed to be showing!
Ads! And Slow. 1st impression was... Oooh looks slick and professional, then an ad popped up! I was instantly put off. Similar situation at the end of articles, ads poorly disguised as more news. Was also slow on times with app appearing to lock up after clicking links. Wanted a change, but looks like I'm going back to the BBC app.
Annoying bug since update I used to rate this app 5* and was pretty much one of the first things I read of a morning, now however it seems I can only read the headline news story in each section as pressing an article other than the headline bring his up the main story anyway.
