Its quite good overall. Sometimes it does take articles from the Reuters type providers which are hardly relevant to Ireland. Other times it has TV show stuff on the homepage which is Red Top type newspaper stuff. I woukd like to see a "Cork" or"Munster Region" button or God forbid, but I am trying to be openminded, a Dublin Region button. While on the topic, I always wondered why they didnt have a pullout for each Region on different says.
App works quite well. Content largely relevant, some UK stories dotted around though which feels odd sometimes. Scrolling articles breaks if switch apps or receive popups from notification centre which is a bit frustrating
Ads are unbeatable intrusive.. Scroll is broken. Changing between portrait and landscape breaks sometimes. Images are badly cropped and low quality. Overall a terrible UI Launch screen appears even if the app has been reopened from running in the background.
The UX is bad. The advertisments are messing up the apps lifecycle with respect to switching between background and foreground. The design is dated and doesnt use material design.
Great for breaking news, often caught great reports here first. Buggy and often cluttered interface tho', at least on Android. Would like to view comments on smartphone but that link never worked.
App has excellent breakdown into different sections of the newspaper, which I find to be good. There are occasional full page ads, very especially on start-up, but they interfere little.
