Some features do not work This app, as it was written, works well, as long as you only want to read the snippets provided and do not care to read the whole story. Many snippets contain non-working "click here" links that contain no links. The links that do work take you out of the app to a browser, and I have just hit a pay-to-read roadblock that I will not fund.
Only get part of the story Advertising covers and blocks entire paragraphs. Report it for blocking the page and it says they'll look into it, while still blocking the page. Why wouldn't I go somewhere else where I can at least read the entire article?
B Jones This is an ok app. It would be better if it did not have so many advertisements. When I open this app I am looking for news. Not someone who wish to sell me something. The many advertisements are annoying.
Pretty good It's a wonderful news app. Nice layout, easy to follow and use. The only issue I have is even with no push notifications checked, I still get them, for whatever reason. It's distracting.
Outstanding App., but Android version needs work This is a top-notch news delivery app. The recent tragedy in Dallas demonstrated its versatility in delivering timely news coverage of breaking events. It is immediate, and carries a level of credibility that Twitter does not. My one strong suggestion is that slideshows of a series of pictures don't display properly on an Android phone, such as my Samsung GALAXY S5 ®. This needs to be improved, but I still give it 4 stars.
Ads make it impossible to read The banner ads cover entire sections of the story. Why waste my time? You can't even click through to remove the ad in order to read the story. Would like to be able to read the DMN, but this makes it impossible.
We love your feedback and are making updates based on it!
- Big updates with advertising: if there are ads, they will load faster for you and the experience will be better! If an ad spot is empty, it will disappear.
- Services in the background have been updated to provide a more rich Sports (SportsDay) and Entertainment (GuideLive) experience. We also made lists and stories load faster across the app.
Keep an eye out for future updates as we add exciting new features throughout the year!
