What's New in Version 18.10
- Performance improvements
Inconsistent presentation of videos
On iPhone 7 with latest updates installed, in one section of the app, I can view primary news video (presidential press statement)- but not supplied in context with commentary etc. In the main video section of the app, where there are segments from the broadcast, I get an error that there is no player installed, and can't view. Also disappointing is the fact I can't just find links to play the sound-only broadcast- I didn't actually care about video. Uninstalling after first use because it's clear the app developers have no interest in maintaining this app. Last update in 2016!!!! Unprofessional
Crash bug seems to be fixed
Excellent news coverage. Haven't experienced any of the technical difficulties I've read about in reviews in the last three weeks.
No Audio / No App Support
Volume completely turned up. No audio. Reporting is good but sometimes like to listen to my news rather than read on small screen. FYI Selecting App Support within App Store takes you to a useless web page.
