Fails to does what it is meant for.

I downloaded the app in November 2017 after seeing all the features of the app ( mentioned in the description ). I was satisfied too.

However, problem arose when the app was updated to its current version. Earlier, the app covered all the sections of the PIB website. Now, it covers only ‘Releases’ and ‘Features’. This is utterly unhelpful for the following reasons:

1) Even if one opens the app everyday, the content is so much that one won’t get all the news updates. For instance, if there have been 40 updates in the day, the app displays only the latest 20 updates. So one has to check the app every 6 hours.

2) The problem becomes more severe during the days when parliament is in session.

3) In the earlier versions, one could simply change the date in the app and get all the news updates for that particular date. Now there is no longer that feature. So, there is no way one gets news of say, 5 days ago, or even the previous day.

4) The revamped PIB website works like a charm. Why pay Rs. 120 for absolutely nothing?

In spite of me mailing the developers, I got no response. The apathy is to such an extent that the misleading description on the app page remains even after a month of the very nature of the app being changed.

For the people who want to get the PIB updates, I recommend that they add the PIB website tab to their home screen.

Highlighting already read news

PG1393

Hi team, first of all, thank you so much for getting this app to us and it’s really helpful for reading the news on the go everyday! The way news is divided also is very clear and easy to access.

But after a new update, the news which is unread is also getting highlighted as read. If I read 1st link, then after completing the link when I go to original page, the 2nd link is also highlighted as I’ve done reading it. Kindly check this glitch.

Thank you again for this app! Keep up the grrat work guys! 😊👍🏼

Great, but new feature is redundant

Banhardt

Excellent app for lazy bums like me who don’t regularly check the website. However, the latest update of including national and sports news other than the PIB releases is completely unnecessary. Most users of this app already have apps for important national and international news ie The Hindu, Indian Express etc. This is redundant and creates an explosion of notifications on the phone. The USP of the app was that aspirants did not need to weed out unnecessary information, but now they would have to. Kindly remove the feature and keep news restricted to PIB releases alone.

Developer Response

Thanks for your feedback.

We do have a "Manage Notification" under "Settings". Here you can disable/enable notification for specific news sections. Ex. you can disable notification for "National" and "Sports".
