Customer Reviews

Love news but who has the time.

Great to catch up on the news but this app seriously needs a scrubbing feature, playback back playback speed control like 1.5x or 2X speeds. And while you're at it, add some background / audio playback options so users can listen while our use another app.

In the meantime… I'll check out your come competitor apps to see what they are offering in the form of user features & control.

New app is awesome

I really like more real estate for browsing more videos which is great when you don't know what you want to watch. Really cool app for people like me who are into following the news all the time!

Tell this to your CEO

Something is wrong over there. Usually, these things comes direct from CEO. I patiently trying to use your app and waiting proper updates since 2016. Please stop taking yoga classes and fix this goddam app or I will quit using it.
