What's New in Version 2.4
*Push notifications have been improved to bring you the latest breaking news even quicker than before.
*We've also taken the opportunity to fix a few minor bugs.
Firstly, The ads before and after watching a 10 second video are incredibly annoying. Moreover, the button to cancel watching the ad is so tiny that 9 times out of 10 I end up clicking on the ad itself! I know sky love this as they can show the companies advertising on the platform how high user engagement is and charge them 10x more then just for a viewing but it's a load of rubbish. ADVERTISERS - I ACCIDENTALLY CLICK ON YOUR ADS CONSTANTLY. I HAVE NEVER ONCE INTENDED TO.
Secondly, on a few occasions I have tried to watch a video only to be shown 2 ads in a row with no news clip!
I spend over £100 a month on my sky subscription, the least sky can do is supply me with news without bombarding me with ads! With over £1.2b of profit I'm sure the company will be just fine without using dodgy advertising techniques!
Won an award? Are you kidding???
I can't believe I just read that the sky news app received an award. Are you kidding me???
A company of sky's standings should be ashamed of this app for a number of reasons...
1) shameful advertising with videos etc
2) constant errors... Menus disappear and links stop working frequently
3) embarrassing spelling mistakes are very common.
4) i have contacted several times about spelling mistakes that aren't even acknowledged let alone fixed.
Don't give the app team an award.... Sack the lot of them for an appalling job!!
Ok we cant argue that the sky news app is the best,most up to date,current and live.........but just to be picky for picky sake what about a fresh look??? Every app I've got has had a modern make over lately so come on sky lets have a make over!!
