What's New in Version 2.1.4
- Includes a fix for a bug which caused some iOS7 users to experience crashes.
- We've also improved the page refreshing behaviour. To see the latest updates on the page you're reading, pull the page down and release.
Push notification sounds are a bit much
The audio alert's a bit much isn't it? Maybe a simple ping sound instead? I turned it off.
Otherwise it's fine.
Pictures not loading
Recently none of the pictures were loading. Poor app.
Adverts on video news
I can't believe the app shows a 20+ second advert before each news clip. Not exactly fast convenient news
