What's New in Version 3.6.0
- Fixed an issue with orientation change
- Improved interface for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
Use it every day
Excellent app that I use every day. The design and content are excellent. It hasn't crashed on me since 2013.
Tiny bug - when it prompts the user to 'rate' the app, and the user selects 'rate', it gives the message 'cannot connect to app store' every time, despite the fact that I definitely can connect to the App Store. I can review it if I search for it in the App Store, but the link from the app is broken, and has been for a long time.
Waldo: I believe the line you quoted is considered standard "news-speak, but I agree that it doesn't read well.
What a wonderful app...
Love the new iPhone 6 Plus interface. So much smoother and faster to find the stories you want to read. Well done as always.
There isn't much to say apart from great. It's void of ads, easy to navigate and offers a variety of news sources is global, local, etc
Also, it's free so given above, can only be five stars. Well done, great app.
Good news app
Good app for accessing news on the go. I don't use the radio or video streaming so can't comment on those. Only downside to latest update for 6 & 6+ is the font is now much smaller than what it used to be. Yes, there are now more headlines available but I would have been happy to sacrifice those for easier reading.
