Buggy and basic, but workable The app gets me the news from our national newspaper, which is its primary purpose. While it meets that requirement, it doesn't do it particularly well. Pictures rarely load in the articles, apart from the headline picture, live reporting on ScribbleLive is very hard to navigate on a mobile device and the search function is horrendous.
Its okay Finally seem to have fixed the PDF file downloading bug, only took months and months . Hope i haven't spoken to soon !. Often get breaking news notifications without there being any article when clicking on it. Maybe you should quickly write at least something before releasing just a headline. And please can the articles be more than just a couple of vague paragraphs that leave very obvious questions unanswered. Please stop all the rugby notifications, i have them turned off for goodness sake.
battery drainer I've been having issues with my s5 with thr battery. I uninstalled this app and it fixed the problem. I jst reinstalled it and now my battery is dropping super fast. please investigate
Articles repeat Cannot stand the way the articles repeat repeat repeat as you scroll down! Also hate the way it jumps back to the top when you go back to home screen from an article, especially when you are a long way down. Boo, a bad app
Funny "we've listened and changed to improve your experience" Funny, what we really really wanted was for the app to get slower, with more popup ads and less content. Um... Fortunately we still get the same shoddy reporting standards, grammar and spelling. Sweet.
Videos don't work often Videos and sometimes embeded images often don't play or are just completely black. This has been a theme across multiple android devices I've used over the last few years. Currently using the S7 and it is still a common problem. Please fix.
