Excellent way to stay on top of news and ongoing alerts from UN sessions. Font size changes need to be native to the app, however. I can only view artickes in the smallest font size, which is illegible. Clicking the font size option opens my device's Accessibility settings to change the font size for the entire device, not just the app itself. Akso, the Lightness option does nothing to change the brightness of the app. Dark mode would be preferred.

I really want to love this app. I absolutely love the UN and the work they do and was so excited to install this, but it doesn't work at all with my Samsung Galaxy S8. It just says, "news feed contains no entries" and whenever I reload displays an error message about a cache or something not being a directory. Please help! I've deleted and re-downloaded it a few times and no luck... It worked for a few minutes once, and I got notifications about 2 articles. But nothing now, + the error is back.

Dear Melody K. thank you for your message and our apology for unintentionally delayed response. The app is currently being upgraded and this, perhaps, might be the reason why some features might not work properly. We sincerely hope that with the newly upgraded/updated version the app will work correctly. Thank you for your understanding and support

Much better than the BBC news app. I hardly ever look at the news due to so much going on. But at least we do know there is some hope. It would be useful to be able to select text in articles to be able to copy and paste. Also, making the app open source and fdroid would help further the UN news app.
