No landscape anymore ?


This has always been my absolute favorite, go-to news app with short, informative articles but this latest update for iPad no longer allows landscape mode. Reading in portrait is so darn irritating on an iPad with Apple cover ....... why did you have to change this ?

Still not Compatible with iPhone X


The iPhone X has been out for close to 6 months now but the latest version still does not offer full compatibility? The Bezzles are still only working on the iPhone 8 and 8+ size screens.

Please can this be rectified soon? It is behind the times in my opinion.



I've titled this review "OK-ish", but it really could be so much better with a little effort. It is not so much that the app is sub-standard, but rather the very poor editorship of articles. Spelling errors, not to mention factual errors are rife. For example, I often find myself checking sport scores on other sites, as these are often incorrect. Perhaps my expectations are too high, but I expect a news site to be 100% correct with facts and scores all the time.

However, the most irritating part of the app are the "Beautiful News" (which mostly aren't news-worthy) and Partner Content articles that are forced down one's throat with daily notifications. Yes, I know these can be turned off, but it is a useful feature of the app.

This app could easily score 5 stars if not for the above. These could be easily rectified, especially the former, with a touch of professionalism.
