What's New in Version 3.0.1
- minor bugfixes
Please fix it
This is one news at that I do want to read. But it is frustrating in the extreme trying to go back after reading a news item. Being taken back to the full news menu is really annoying and usually means getting out of the app before finishing the news. The back button is often not there and does not take you back to resume reading from your starting point anyway. Too frustrating to read news items and then have to start navigating again!
Great Update (IOS 6.1.5, iPod Gen 4)
The update bring the app back to modern times, it's sleek, fast(ish) and the article formatting has been greatly improved and optimized for iPod/phone viewing, especially with the photos. Navigation buttons have been fixed with latest update.
Great source of news, app needs some work.
By far the best source of news from Australia and the world. I love the look and feel of this app, but it needs work to make moving around the app, such as between categories as well as stories, smoother and faster. Overall a good app.
