I like VOA I started listening to VOA using a shortwave radio since I was in secondary school though it was full of noise due to the signal interference of the government. Now I have left that country which is overwhelmed by smog for ever. And I can read VOA news every day through this app. I like the objective manner in which news is reported by VOA. In contrast the smog country's medias are jokes.
I've been a listener of VOA for so long, anything I say would be stating the obvious. It is one station I listen to for in depth analysis of up to the moment's news.
Image Display Glitch When "display images" is turned off, articles take a long time to load (if they load at all), and in the meantime nothing shows but a blank screen. Please fix this issue!
Global outlook, principled reporting. Not a provincial DC-NY-LA thing. VOA provides balanced world news in an appealing, compact package. Credible, responsible journalism covering international politics, human rights issues, economics. Excellent resource for users of English as 2nd language. Would like to see expansion of arts, science, education news. Recommended! (Looking for more Asia coverage? See also RFA.)
Simple = Better A great way to keep up to date without the slanted editorial content of other media. Stable, too. VOA is my go-to for international news updates, several times a day.
Pretty good. Only complaint is that there is too much following the media crowd on what is covered. I'd like to see more local, small, good news stories. Otherwise, pretty good app.
