Customer Reviews

Almost unusable

I'm not one for writing reviews, but this app has finally pushed me over the edge. Since the 2015 version was released onto an unsuspecting public in January, this app has become almost unusable. It takes forever to load news stories then, just as you think you're ready to go, half the images disappear and you're stuck in another wait. As you scroll through the list of stories, the app becomes completely unresponsive for up to 10 seconds at a time. And then, to top it all, it helpfully tells you that the page has been updated. Tap to reload? I think not.
The only fixes in the last 4 months seem to be for Apple Watch owners. Does no one involved in developing this application read or believe the reviews? I'm heading to CNN for my news fix now, I'm afraid and you would be well advised to join me. If you haven't downloaded this app yet, save yourself some time and stress and don't bother.

It’s Quite Literally Wasted Space...

Whilst the app function itself isn't too bad... basically, it works and does what it's supposed to... BUT it takes up so much storage space it's just not worth having.
I've got a 16GB iPad, so I already don't have much space - therefore, when the cookies, data, and whatnots from this app are saved permanently alongside it inside my tiny local drive, it stuffs it full to bursting, which is really annoying. This is a 9.6MB sized app, but the last time I uninstalled it, it was nearly 600MB in size.
Frankly, it's easier to just use the website.
The app they had before this one was fine, and it didn't take up all my space. This new, updated version is really not worth having if you have low space on your device.

Usually good

When this site started playing up, slow loading etc about a month ago I found that uninstalling then a fresh installation did the job. If anything it is now just a bit too slick in operation, but that is no criticism.
I held back one star as I personally find the layout a bit untidy. I will try and remove the things from the top bar that duplicate items or that I rarely look at, then see how I feel. Wonder if I can do that with the video clips - I never watch them.
Regardless, it's my No1 news site and I enjoy it.
