Review from Seamus McKenzie.
Improved Working now, at least. Fingers crossed.
Freezes and fails to load stories. I have to close out of the app after reading one story and open it up again. Pls get this sorted - It happens from the 'top stories' or latest. It freezes and I am left with a a blank page that says 'pull to refresh' at the top. I generally close all apps frequently to save battery. I have to close out of the app and reload to read the next feed. I have tried clearing the cache and this doesn't fix it. No similar issues with other apps.
Bombarded with pop up adverts Over the last couple of months this once enjoyable new app has gone the way of many redtop. 50/50 news and trash. Having just used the app the last 4 stories I clicked out of brought full screen pop ups. Main feed fails to load every time The content on the app is not good enough as a news site to keep one interested anymore but is tabloid is your thing
Irritating If you like right wing propaganda then this is the app for you. However the app does not let you comment. So you have to go to the website independent. ie and then the blue nose moderator blocks most of your comments even though you are not using bad language. So much for freedom of speech.
Phone hijacker Used to love this app, bit the juggernaut crash in quality over the last 12 months is unbelievable. I installed it on my new android phone only for my phone to start crashing completely. Different apps and service settings opening up and jumping all over screen, back buttons unresponsive, l thought there was s fault with phone, uninstalled app and phone went back to normal, OK l thought dodgy download reinstalled app same issue . This app is disgrace and I have serious concerns at its hijacking of phone
Standards going down Slowly catching up with Mail on Line and that is trash.Also won't load main story, absolute pain. One more thing, could you please keep sport under Sport and not Latest or News.Update, well I have struggled with this app for about a year now and have now given up on it. Content continues to slide quality wise and the app itself continues with the same problems reported from day one. Now to uninstall button.
Consistently crashes, that's the only reliable thing about this app, that and the pop up ads. Update: 99% of the time, first time clicking into an article, you get the message: An error has occurred. Please try again later. When you click the article again, it generally works fine...ads I can put up with as you have to make money some how! Update: crashes on both but I'm more usually on WiFi .
Fix for newsletter links that failed to open the article in the app.
Fix for a crash that could occur while viewing videos in fullscreen mode.
