Navigation is awkward. When I tap on a headline that appears on my tablet feed, the app opens but I have to hunt for the story behind the headline that caught my interest in the first place and it's usually hard to find, so I just close the app.
Massive improvements since last year, but still short of full potential of the app, such as more videos, gifs, infographics, maps, etc; no section for science/environment; many articles found in the paper (especially on health/food) are not in the app; at times limited depth and coverage of key issues, especially on the environment and climate change...
Easily the most usable and attractive news app in Canada. I wish the globe and mail would hire the developers!
Lots of pictures. If you like to read news in a magazine format with a lot of visual flair, you will like this app.
I love Star Touch. But until there's an option to limit the amount of data used by this app I can't have it on my tablet. While installed, the amount of data used by the app grew by 50-100 MB every day without ever decreasing. When I uninstalled Star Touch, I gained more than 2 GB of storage. Fix this app!
- Minor improvements.
