The ineligibility thing got fixed I think

Element Ni

I was sent an email quite a while back saying I was eligible. About a month ago, I downloaded the app, the app said I wasn’t eligible. However when I tried today it worked. Thanks Optus.

I can’t read descriptions


Everytime I click read more on a pictures description there is no button to read less again and I can’t scroll up to the top so I’m stuck in that screen please fix this. So stupid, I can’t read in the nat geo app

Straight up doesn't work


Tout have to sign for this to work, but it won't let you. I'm a customer, so chose to sign in by My Account, but one of two things happen. Either it sits there spinning and spinning pretending like it's doing something but doesn't change. OR: the spinning thing just freezes.
Digital version of a paperweight. Don't bother on this one.
