Enjoy the news, quizzes and views, and our Irish take on life. Often I'd upvote a comment I appreciated. I liked the down-voting too, as readers had the ability to frown if they mildly disliked a comment. Updated this app last week and there's only up-voting. Also, I can't post any more. If that changes, I'll add stars.
Used to be good, before the latest update. The new comments section ruined it. The comments were the main reason I used the app as there are many other and in some cases better news apps out there
.....latest update destroyed the app. No red thumbs, too much white space and scrolling, replies now hidden. This on top of censorship. After several years of use, now uninstalled from phone. You had a good thing going and you ruined it.
Restore the old comments section it was the best thing about The Journal now it's complete rubbish! I can get the news anywhere but I used this app because of the comment section, now it's gone and so am I. Deleted!
The news articles are substandard but it was always about the comments but the latest update has removed the ability to red thumb. For this reason it gets 1 reluctant star
Comments ability destroyed. This was the game breaker for this app Vs others. The red thumbs were brilliant. The layout of the new comments means endless scrolling and therefore less comments... Dull.

We’ve been working hard on improving our comments section, it has been completely redesigned for a better experience. You can now control which comments you want to see, favourite a user to give their comments priority over others, or mute a user to stop seeing their comments completely.
