What’s New

Version 8.1.0

A shiny new update is what this is. Included in this one are some rather important bug fixes and clean up around the app. Also we are introducing the ability to delete your account directly from within the app. A word of caution, if you use your account with other Reach publications, deleting an account in one place, will delete it everywhere.

Not bad

It’s a pain having to login each time app is opened before you can post a comment on news report. Would be easier if could stay logged in or use Touch ID to login.

As stable as a giraffe on a trampoline

Please could you add the contents of this app to the Apple News app as well because, quite frankly, this app is about as stable as a giraffe on a trampoline.

When it comes to actually using it it constantly & consistently crashes whilst its either updating &/or whilst its being used, thus making it almost impossible at times to actually read it contents.

It either needs a major overhaul, to be scraped completely & started again &/or to have its contents also ported directly into the Apple news app under the topic “Bristol Live” so that its contents can at least be read within a more stable environment.

Comments link gone

Yes,comments sections can be awful, but if you did leave a comment you could see in the app if anyone had replied. Now you get an email notification (not especially wanted) with what usually is someone’s terrible reply, which then takes you to the website not the app. It’s hard to refind stories in the app. So that was a good feature and it’s a shame it’s been changed.

Developer Response ,

Hi, we'd like to apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Unfortunately, this feature was removed not because we wanted but because our new comment provider didn't support this feature.

We're working closely with them to bring this feature back, so please bear with us in the meantime.

In regards to the emails with replies, you can unsubscribe to those on your own email provider, is normally at the top or at the bottom of the email.

If you need anything else please let us know at so we can help you better.
