Customer Reviews

It wasn't broken, so why break it?

This used to be a great little app for Japanese related news, and if i was reviewing one of the older versions, i'd have given it a 5 star.

However, since the most recent update, it's completely unusable. Inexplicably, the landscape screen orientation requires orienting into portrait and then back to landscape, in order to remove the big black line covering half the screen.

Despite being connected to a wi-fi network, many of the news articles only display for a second before a warning comes up saying you must connect to a wi-fi network to view it.

The list of news stories on the left, which used to be very well organized now displays dozens and dozens of repeated articles.

I only had one criticism of the original app, and that problem still remains. There is no way to view an article in another app. Say I want to open the full article in Chrome, you just can't. You also can't copy the link or save it to an email or forward it to a friend.

If this app is still being developed, please roll back what ever you did to brick this neat little news app.
