Needs a Fix


The app works. But navigation is overly complicated; and whenever I open a link from a social media app, the Rappler app home page comes up instead of the article linked. I’ve been annoyed by this for months and am finally deleting my app because I’d rather be redirected to the article on a browser page rather than having to manually take note of the article title and googling it.

Best local app!


Yeah, just wanna say this app should be included in the starter apps for new iPhone or any iOS devices for PH app store. Nice UI with super relevant contents! And the Techraps, I hope they won't get tired doing videos after videos. I think this is the only source where you could get updated with new technologies particularly locally for that matter.

I just wish they could introduce some notifications feature 'cause I sometimes forget to check the app.

P.S. I voluntarily wrote this 'cause I'm quite happy and I wish to get them motivated more. :D

Awesome App!


Finally, a tool that empowers people to inform and be informed. Great timing as it's perfect for the upcoming elections.

Also, if you could consider changing the convention for getting the latest news updates. The Flipboard convention of up/down should be ok if news are flipped like a vertical tickler page. Since i think the UI xp theme is newspaper-like -- ie, flipped from right/left -- i'm guessing it's ok if we get the news updates by pulling from the left? And the earlier news from the right. Just my 2 cents. :D
