Good concept mediocre execution.... Needs two things for me - first when it crashes continue story from where it was up to, and second remember where the read is up to when exit g so can come back and continue, like a bookmark...
Not enough science and space news. GREATLY favors one sided Republican articles and allows opinion and fake news such as Glen Beck and Shawn Hannity. Talk shows are NOT news, they are opinions and blatently lie for ratings. I wanted a NEWS app, not an opinion app.
First time I used it it was great and then I tried to use it again and it keeps saying cannot locate server even though I had a great connection. I tried it on Wi-Fi and LTE so I'm not sure if it'll work again
Great Concept; Needs Repairs I love using this app to hear some of the day's news stories during my commute. Unfortunately, the app consistently crashes after listening to several stories and after pressing 'pause' and swiping to the next story. Also, the app seems to be working extra hard and tends to heat up my phone at a concerning rate. If these issues were repaired and addressed with an update, I'd give Newsbeat 5 stars all day.
Still crashing frequently. After crashes, goes back to beginning of playlist rather than where it stopped. I have the paid version and I can't even use it. I have cancelled my subscription.
Love the news, hate the data leech Compared to streaming music how much data dies recorded voice need? I literally listen for 30 min intervals on morning commutes and each time has been over a gb
