It's fine for reading the news. However there is a major glitch. It's not possible to type in forms in the app. So I couldn't enter my address in the 'how diverse is your electorate' survey. And I couldn't send feedback. The keyboard doesn't appear. Samsung Galaxy s20 5g

Hi Paul, we apologize for this glitch. We are aware that some of our interactives are not working as expected on some Android devices. Our developer has placed a web link below the graph as a quick workaround while we investigate the issue. Cheers ^SG. SBS News App

I've long enjoyed the SBS News App but the latest 'improvement' where many headline stories are now only available as podcasts and no longer just a text story is a backward step. I don't want a podcast; I am actually capable if reading/skipping through a story for myself! Why do IT gurus think they have to keep changing things which don't need fixing? Not happy!

This used to be one of the best independent news services until they included automatic opening sound tracks. What a confounding noise! There is enough noise! As far as I can check I can't turn that deafening and activating feature off, permanently!!

Hi Glen thank you for the feedback. We're always working hard to improve the app and user experience, can you please email us at apps@sbs.com.au to describe exactly where you encounter this soundtrack, is it at the beginning of a video and if so which ones? Cheers ^SG. SBS News App
