Ratings and Reviews
Impossible to cancel
Quick and easy to sign up, but when you want to cancel they have made it impossible to do so. I’m on hold while doing this review. If you try and cancel online you have to fill out a form that requires even more personal information (address, phone numbers, ect) why on earth do they need more information to cancel than to sign up.
The whole business model is set up to as a scam.
Is subscription worth it?
Great access to all news around Australia. As a former Tasmanian who now lives in Queensland it is good to catchup on all the Tasmanian news as I still have family there. Very easy to read on the iPad and you can also download the paper in its printed format for us oldies.
Be careful using this app as they’ll get you to sign up for a “12 week” trial for $4 before slogging you $28 for the use of a rubbish app! Once more you’ll just start seeing your account being automatically charged without consenting to the payment.
