Really pleased they have finally released an app, been waiting for so long. Would have given a 5 star rating but missing out my area which isn’t helpful if you’re searching for local news. I guess in time to come the app will have updates and bug fixes as it is their first.

You try to put a comment on & when you’ve finished you go to enter it & the majority of what you’ve written doesn’t appear, it stops halfway through sentences so you have to delete it & try try try again until you give up. Recently there’s a pop up that says you e used words they don’t allow but don’t say what they are, I recently tried to say “ selfish people full of their own self importance who don’t believe laws, rules, guidelines apply to them & think they are being clever, well they’re not” & this wouldn’t get past the “word censor” yet other comments have really insulting comments posted no problem. More than once a banner headline has come onto my tablet from this site & yet when you go to look at the full story, it’s not there, sometimes for several hours or never. This really is an awful site, the only reason I keep it is because it does have quite a bit of local news hidden amongst stupid surveys

Utter rubbish

First, every time you open the app, all you get is football news and kids news. You have to repeatedly opt to see the topics that might interest you. Why can’t the app remember user’s preferences?
Second, the content is SO poor it isn’t worth reading - articles based on trip advisor reviews, incorrect information presented as fact, etc - clearly not a single journalist works for the paper. A recent example was a personal story about a journalist on the paper moving from Notts to Leicester 😂 TOP CLASS REPORTING 😂
Third, the writing is appalling. Good spelling, punctuation and grammar Are clearly not job requirements. Nor are proofreading skills.
