Couldn’t register as the app doesn’t let me scroll down in the terms of service part of the registration.
Wasn’t surprised though, always problems with everything that says ’by Optus’. Optus seems to have problems with lots of simple things, tech is not the strongest field of Australia I guess since back in Finland we never get these kind of issues that happen more than often here.
Update: I see that this same problem has been there since January-February.
If you want to make your customers happy and keep it that way all the time you should consider in fixing things that are not working instead of just saying that you will.

Stupid App

1. It is premium to Optus so you CAN’T EVEN PURCHASE it after the initial 30 day trial. Only by getting your service switched to Optus and one of its preferred plans would you be able to access it. This is angering me Optus. You only lose your support from customers and damage your reputation with such opportunistic actions.
2. They make you tick your favourite areas yet DO NOT LABEL the area of the article (only “reads”, “looks (videos)”) so you can’t browse through articles particularly of a specific area 😡

Good graphics and flash though. Hope the real app problems solved as well.

The ineligibility thing got fixed I think

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.
