What's New in Version 2.1.3
Need we say more ?!
Mostly "Fair and balanced" :-). Multiple channels have obvious liberal perspectives, however, FOX News illustrates they are the most "fair and balanced" in terms of their overall reporting perspectives. They are not unreasonably "extreme" in their views, regardless of what liberals would suggest. Unfortunately, a typical "liberal", would consider anything inconsistent with their party's views, to be unacceptable and radically conservative. In summation; none of them are perfect if you have an "open mind" and a clear/mature perspective in terms of the media, however, the evidence strongly shows the Fox news Channel is consistently the most professional and consistent in their perspective business'. This demonstrates, at least at some reasonable level, impartiality when reporting news and engaged in commentary. More than most basically. It's clearly not perfect, agreed, but mostly they (Fox news) do it with less personal emotion and less questionable ethics.
Love Fox News, App just OK
My biggest problem with this app is the terrible editing. I am starting to wonder what kind of qualifications you need in order to be hired on as an editor. Or maybe there is no editor?? So bad...especially for a news app. It's truly cringeworthy. Double words, misspellings, missing text, etc. They really need to fix this problem.
My other complaint is the way that you have to maneuver through the top three stories. If you're not interested in reading them, or you already have, you still have to take the time to look at each headline and photo before it allows you to scroll down to the other stories. That's annoying. The amount of "sponsored" stories are also frustrating. It makes it so "yahoo-esque." I love Fox News, and I really want to like this app but I just don't. I'd so much rather Fox News put out a no BS app that truly is all "real" news.
Sure it is neat to mix text and images. Sure it is neat to have a unique scrolling of news topics as well as a few other things. I think your missing the point, trying to use it regularly is annoying. You scroll up a little while trying to maintain reading place and letting go and it pops back is a strain. Then after scrolling down you now have images going left and right for other stories. The goal of a mobile app is not to use every feature of the api, it is to make a useful app the is user friendly.
Personally, you really should hit rewind to over a year ago back to the original interface and just do clean up to it. Maybe add "some" new api features. It was so much easier to use back then. I'm not the only one, friends of mine stopped using your app for the same reasons. There are times we want to read the news and not watch videos or be forced to scroll through pictures. Get back to the basics.
