Customer Reviews

App requires log in every time

The app used to work fine. Recently though, it's required my log in details every time. Very annoying. Need to do this multiple times a day. Needs to be fixed asap.


Can't even log in

Good but could be improved

The format is simple and easy to use. News is broken up into 4 main categories plus a Newsflash category which showcases 5 of the biggest or trending stories. The app makes navigating the news rather easy. The main issue is that if you go to another app on your phone whilst reading, when you return to The Australian, whatever page you were on reloads meaning you have to scroll and find the story you were reading again. Also the Newsflash section is possibly a bit too simple. Could possibly increase it from 5 stories to 10, as well as update the stories more than once per day
