Very handy Keeps me up today with Irish news whilst I'm in the UK
Good reading but... I enjoy reading the news on this app but the format needs work ie lose the promoted spammy articles, I understand the need for ads it's revenue after all but not the spam.
Good news app, crappy ads ruin the experience. Update, uninstalled from device after notifications about some GAA game were considered breaking news. Previous review:Terrible ads, good news.. As far as the news portion goes, it's pretty good for that with easy access and easy reading. However, the over-intrusive ads are a nightmare. Unskippable video ads before a news segment and (unforgivably) unstoppable video ads after watching a video segment. The full screen interstitial ads that vary their close button location, that's unforgivable as well.
To many adverts Way to many adverts.its just annoying at this stage
I hate all the pop-up Ads. I hate all the pop-up Ads and I hate all the stupid Promoted Articles sections, especially in the centre of articles, please get rid of them. There's 327 1 star ratings, at least the majority think there's, something is obviously wrong with this app.
