Updates never work Whenever I recieve notifications about updates, the link always brings me to a different story and I am unable to find the original article that I was interested in. This is becoming a problem and I will soon be looking for new political sources if this is not fixed. Fine app for keeping up quickly with political events that are not covered by most news sources. Should be used as a source, not THE source because there is bias as is to be expexted.
Could Be Better Overall the app does what is expected of it: provide political news. But some improvements could be made. For starters, the notifications do not allow you to "peek" by dragging them down. The UI needs a more modern look and feel as well.
An extremely baised news source This news source is incredibly baised, a perfect example was an article about American mayors "demanding congress to act on gun control". Throughout the article it was presumed that this was a wide reaching survey that spoke for mayors everywhere, instead it turned out to just be a sample of 45 mayors who were 85% democrat. Great survey.
Awful I have never loved this app, but I enjoyed reading the left wing perspective from time to time. For the last 6 months, the app loads new stories, but when I click to read, they never load. Ever. I once waited 10 minutes just to see. Nothing. The screen stayed white. Its annoying. So I am giving up on this P.O.S. app and deleting it, finally. Half a year of not loading basically tells me that someone in the Politico IT department ought to lose their job. Terrible.
Very great app. One thing to fix. Every time I open breaking news alerts it goes to a story from 2011. The other day it was a breaking news alert about Speaker Boehner I opened it and it was a news story about Scott Walkers recall. Others have included Mitt Romney accepting his party's nomination and Tim Geithner staying on a Treasury Sec through election.
Notification Problems I love the articles, but the primary reason I installed this app was for the notifications for breaking news. Updating my phone to 7.0 Nougat broke the notifications. Whenever I receive one, the notification just show up black with only about 5 characters of the title showing. This isn't a problem with the update as all other notifications work fine. Also, if I tap the notification to see the article about 5 seconds after it pops up, the app tells me the alert is unavailable. Fix these problems, I'll rate 5
