Not sure about the mixed reviews
I don't know why some other comments complain about the interface--I think it's great. Smooth, easy to use, with some cool features like a left-swipe to get a summary of the article before you read it.
All in all, a great news app for national news and international news. Although I do wonder why there is an American version of this app and and English version. But, that does not make this app work poorly.
If you like keeping your head in the news, this is a great addition to your news apps!
Sharing is gone?
I like the app, photos are a bit bulky and eat up data, would be better to have thumbnails and titles, but that's not my biggest issue. When I first got this app I could share links with people, it would copy a photo and a link to the clipboard, now after updating all sharing does is copy the photo! If anything make it so it only copies the link, I don't care about the photo I want someone to read the article not look at a pretty picture! Please fix this! Thanks!
In poor taste
How tacky are you? Not only do you cut off the livestream of the video in the usual English app, then you want to know my ZIP to find the channel that plays it? Here's a news tip: I don't have cable. I have a streaming device. I will not get cable just to watch your news network.
P.S. The logo for this is on a black background and a bit too reminiscent of the IS flag imo for our visual recognition. You need a new marketing director, a new UX director and you should probably just stop allowing downloads of your terrible apps in the USA. I, for one, am disgusted by the fact that these work so poorly. Happy to remove them.
