Ratings and Reviews
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
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
Add Headline Notifications
I love this app. I love what the organisation stands for and it's for this reason that I wish I had the news delivered directly to me sometimes.
Though, other people probably don't find this much a problem as I do, sometimes I have a problem of not actively looking for the news and wait till someone mentions it on text or in-person.
You guys need to add a push notification feature wherein big headlines or just generally alert things be given directly to the user.
