Ratings and Reviews
Version 7.3: OK app + how to make it better
PROS: 1-Great layout that’s clean and pleasing to the eye.
2-The “Best Of Gold Coast” section is terrific, with plenty of positive stories.
3-Works great in portrait and landscape, which not all news apps do.
4-The coloured cross indicates when a story is for subscribers only - although it would’ve been nice to explain this when first using the app, hint hint.
HOW TO MAKE IT BETTER: 1-The notifications of an event usually go to the home page instead of the event - not the sort of thing that inspires me to become a paid subscriber.
2-Get rid of the annoying 2cm-high banner ad at the bottom of the app - I understand that some apps use ads, but that’s just overkill.
3-Add more subscriber options - what if someone only wants to read the current edition, or only weekdays, or only the Saturday edition? The monthly payments should reflect these preferences.
4-The “My news” tab only shows four sections - why not show all the sections?
5-Settings should have its own button, instead of being hidden away in the “All sections” tab.
CONCLUSION: an OK app, with plenty of room for improvement.
Rip off, no support
Such a rip off and terrible support or should say NO support. Paid for weeks of the paper and never got it. Tried to get help and just get a generic email with tips of how to fix which does nothing and then just get passed off and told not their problem even though the problem occurred as soon as they updated the app version.
Haven’t been able to open this app for two months and nobody able to assist despite being charged each week. Very disappointing as enjoyed reading the paper of a morning
