I agree with other comments the ads are so annoying. I can skip them on TV by recording & fast-forwarding through them but have no such option here. A lot of other apps give you the option to skip ads after a few seconds but no this one. You'd think Sky were making enough money with the constant rise in subscription charged! Also that annoying bar at the bottom of each story that you end up opening when it pops up as you scroll down the page. So called related stories full of more ads.😡😡😡😡😡
Furthermore have being trying to watch video clips about the awful events in Paris and they don't even have enough respect to remove the adverts from these videos. It's not like sky need the revenue they turn enough profit every year.
The title says it all - intuitive. It's the best news app I've encountered, because it's so easy to navigate. This is a credit to the design team, for implementing a wide range of areas in news, so that its focused, and brought to you in both video and print.
Sky have understood that the iPad Pro is mostly used in landscape, and it also carries picture in picture support for live news feeds, which is ideal for the morning, when you need to catch up on news, but need to get some work done.
Do not recommend
I've had this app for over a year and at first the app was really good. Then a major update occurred and many things changed such as the layout of the app. I grew on these feature but then I realised how often it crashed. After a few seconds of opening the app it will randomly crash back to the home screen. It's been like this for quite a while now. Another point is that the app never regularly updates its news. There are still news report I read months ago still appearing. All that really updates is the 'Top Stories' section which is actually up to date.
I do not recommend this app.
