What's New in Version 2.2.1
- Back end fixes
Great App! Accurate information.
I am very conservative, but I enjoy how Fox News maintains balance, even In the opinion sections. They allow us to get both sides of the arguments. Despite the criticism from many, I find that Megan Kelly asked fair questions during the first republican debate. Anyone who disagrees, is expecting Fox News to do what MSNBC and CNN do to the left. "Fair and balanced" means asking tough questions to everyone on every end of the political spectrum. If you don't want honest coverage and you expect Fox News to give the right a free pass and bash democrats all day, you can find other apps that write false articles with misleading headlines and ask for money by spamming your emails.
Fox is the number one name in news for a reason. They are fair and accurate. They aren't puppets to any political party, as most other media outlets are.
As far as function, the app is functional. However it would be great if Fox offered a monthly streaming fee instead of forcing one to have to login to the cable subscriber. I pay $100 in cable a month and I never even switch channels. I keep it on 24/7 I'd rather give that money to the channel I watch than Comcast and it's customer "disservice".
Excessive “breaking news"
This app is pretty good overall — gives you well formatted access to information on the FoxNews website. The only downside that I can see to this app is how much stuff FoxNews classifies as “breaking news”, resulting in a pop-up on your phone and notifications, which get to be excessive at times.
For instance, this is the week that the Pope is visiting America, and although it was planned and has been known he was coming for a year or more, FoxNews is putting out breaking news updates for every mundane movement the Pope makes (e.g., “Pope about to arrive at Andrews AFB”, “Pope arrives at Andrews AFB”, “Pope greets POTUS”, “Pope arrives at White House”, etc.). I would like get notifications for things that are unexpected and significant — the Pope arrival is probably enough. People that want to track every movement of the Pope thereafter can get Twitter for the rest. I don’t need to get an alert for the Pope’s breakfast selection.
You can turn off the notifications in your settings app, but within the settings of the app itself, the “breaking news” alerts button does not allow it to be deactivated.
Great app, very informative, would totally recommend!!!
This app has been a total life saver. I love getting the alerts on updates in the media. It's nice to get the news by facts only instead of opinion. I have had it for about a month now and no glitches or freeze ups. All the videos play successfully, easy to navigate, user friendly. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because sometimes I have had problems posting videos and stories on Facebook. I have to open link and watch video in order to post to fb. But then again maybe that's the way it's supposed to be. It would be nice sometimes to just tap the story and not have to worry about opening it, in order to post. I will keep the app, totally recommend this to anyone! Fair and balanced is definitely a motto they live up to. It's a shame we can't get other media to get on board.
