I think the live tv app may be better than the live tv coverage. Or maybe it just seems that way. As for commercials, I can live with it, since we're getting this app for free. I really like the way it's set. I also like the way the news is presented. I do find it funny when reporters do American news. Just a slight difference in culture and slang. Nevertheless, this a handy app to have when you need to read or view the news in a hurry.
The app is good for providing up to date and latest news very quickly, however the spelling and grammar errors in the content and the frequency of them let the app down. I appreciate the news moves quickly, but there needs to be more attention to detail in the editing. The 'outbrain' ad pop up which appears almost every time you scroll back up a story is also annoying.
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. This version not compatible and previous version now crashes when loading news items on Android Gingerbread 2.3.6.
The app is ok, though some of the front-page stories tend to push Sky's own narrative. Some clearly need proof reading as well, due to poor writing. Hate how intrusive the sponsored links are now. Used to be a few at the bottom of an article, now they also pop up on your screen if you scroll upwards for any reason. I would use BBC news but you need to pay the BBC Tax to use that as it has the capability to live stream BBC content.
As a news app, its OK. However, the widget is annoying. When I see a story I am interested in, I tap it. This then loads the main app, but it does not take you to the news story! Instead, you have to go through the list of stories again to find it. Frustrating..
Sky has finally fixed all the things that I hated. It's back to being a great app. Well written news reports. Right now I'm liking this app better than the BBC which seems to have lost its political neutrality in relation to Brexit.
