Ads are far too invasive

Man u own

I’ve been a News24 user for many years and have always loved the app- however, it’s recently become inundated with ads which are very invasive (scattered everywhere, ad videos play automatically and use data, ads pop up and while scrolling it is almost impossible to not accidentally click an ad and be transported to a new site due to the layout) and it is truly detracting from the user experience- so much so in fact, that I can’t see myself using the app for much longer. It’s starting to feel like a cheap scam of an app.

Developer Response

Good day

Thank you for your feedback regarding the ads on our app.

I am sorry to hear of your less than satisfactory experience using News24. I have brought this to the attention of our business department for consideration.

Hope the above is in order.

Kind regards
News24 Team

Very bias unfortunately


Like many news sources these days, News24 prefers articles that caters to social justice warriors. Many times now I’ve noticed how articles are published which at a later date was found to have been very inaccurate or entirely false. The problem is they don’t publish the updated articles.

This way without knowing any better people continue to believe false information is factual.

Just today I can point four articles that is guilty of this.

Great news, but not always First


I love this app, and it provides all the important stories, however when i wake up, it never has the latest news.
It only updates the stories later in the day, and at that point I’ve already heard them on the radio.
Maybe some earlier bulletins?
Other than that, great 🙌🏾
