The National is a great News App. I have enjoyed it for sometime now. I would like to invite all news lovers around the world to consider having The National News App downloaded on their phone and tablets as one of their go-to News sources. I hope to continue to enjoy the App if it stays free for everyone. However, I would like to suggest that the The National News App be improved upon, especially the interface, the drop-down menu and the over all design, and be less data consuming.

Endless Repetition Of The Same Stories! At first it looks like there are many articles, however as you scroll down you find that there are actually only several but that they just keep repeating further down. The quality of the writing is often poor as well: grammatical errors, bad or incorrect use of idioms (and this is when the article is supposedly credited to native English-speakers). Overall nowhere near as good as a proper journalism source, but still better than all other Gulf-based news.
