Fix your bugs. Bring the news

Im a student studying overseas and want an app to keep in touch with Malaysian progress. This is Not very useful. Has a tab for Tech but has no new content there. No news updates too. So, what's the point of downloading this app?

Crap App

Why am I paying you money to be subjected to so many ads? Worse still the ads have nothing to do with me and you can’t skip them until a certain time has passed, and then to make matters worse you need to hunt for the X button to close the crap ad. I am unsubscribing from this pitiful excuse of an app.

Please stop from forcing user to update. Every update has made the experience gone downhill. And now with the latest update you’re forcing user to “subscribe” while still injecting ads into your app. This is ridiculous. And by the way, the so called “Breaking News” alert is super annoying, it alerts news that’s not even breaking at all!
