App needs work

This app was a good idea but needs work as the usability is not up to par. For now people might consider just making a shortcut to the website. This way, you’ll be able to at least open an article in a new tab to avoid losing your place in the article list. In the app if you click an article, when you hit the back button you don’t go back to where you were, you have to repeatedly scroll back down to where you were. It’s fine the first couple of times and after that you’ll probably just uninstall the app. They also need to change the website mobile icons to have their actual logo in it so it’s recognizable and not just a red stripe through a black square when it appears on your home screen. I’ve almost deleted it by accident a bunch of times because it looks like nothing. :(

Market update is rubbish! He cousn’t seem to have a clue! This week’s drop because of that idiot Trump wasn’t even given airtime! No wonder I don’t see it as even relevant! Just take it off!

Good app

This is a good news app. Want to see what a bad news app is, look no further than the Times Colonist app.

Well done Check News!
