Beta Program

Become a beta tester now and get new versions before all other users. We welcome your feedback on the beta updates.
Register now here:

Your feedback on the beta updates is desired by email to or via the Google+ Community:

If you activate the beta test, you will automatically receive the beta version of the app as an update via the Google Play Store. The beta version then replaces the current version from the store. So you cannot install both versions on your device at the same time.


Explanation of permissions:

✗ Your accounts (find accounts on device)

Required on devices with older Android versions to receive push notifications, as an existing Google account is required. With this permission it is only possible to query whether an account exists. The list of accounts found is not transmitted and the data of the accounts themselves are not accessible to the app.

✗ Storage (change or delete USB storage contents)

Is required to be able to cache data such as images on devices with little internal memory. For this purpose, the app only accesses the cache directory it has created.
Other data on the USB memory is neither read nor manipulated.

✗ System tools (disable standby mode)

This will make it possible in the future to wake up the device from sleep mode when you receive a push message.

✗ Hardware controls (control vibration alarm)

Optionally, the vibration alarm is triggered when the device receives a push message.

✗ Read Google service configuration

Required by Google for Google Play Services.

✗ Your location (Your location - Approximate (network-based) location).

Required for the optional weather module and/or FOCUS Local.

great app with all features one needs. but why are all titles / headlines always cut short, sentences not complete ? one could reduce the size of the corresponding picture and there would be enough space for full sentences. thats why only 4 stars.

Last update is worthless. When I click on the push notifications it goes directly to the end of the entire News Ticker article si I have to scroll all the way up for the latest news. Hope an update comes soon that fixes this bug.

I used to love this app, did even buy the magazin for years. But no longer. You're now a mouthpiece of those that don't really mean it well with humanity. Your critical thinking was replaced by assisted thinking and has nothing to with investigative journalism anymore. Truly disappointing.
