Manchester Evening News App

Would be useful if it worked!!! Outdated articles often left on for days. News notifications.. when you click on them the app opens, only to find a picture and the headline but no article!!! Then you try and find it within the app and it cannot be found, until hours later. Not great, there have been several updates recently but this bug hasn’t been addressed. Could be so much better if the glitches were ironed out and articles were updated regularly throughout the day.

Poor standard of journalism from some writers

This app is OK if you are able to put up with articles written by young and babbling indecipherable journalists. I need to get to the facts and in concise and clear language when a news story is being presented....and unfortunately, many are very poor from some writers I could mention. Sport and in particular football is bombarded with mind numbing articles about insignificant goings on with individuals at their clubs. Many of them are speculative and ‘way off the mark’ in terms of the real truth. Subsequently, the integrity of this ‘News’ paper constantly takes a battering from its readers. I suppose though the articles are free to read at there’s little to have a real gripe about until we are made to pay !

Decent but not great

I use this app most days to try and keep up to date on all things local in and around Manchester.
There are good stories which relate to things to do with kids and the best eating / dining places in Manchester and they also advise you how to get decent discounts on a lot of things too. This is really helpful.

However the traffic updates are never up to date and there have been times the app is reporting heavy traffic on certain routes but when you travel it the traffic has gone.
This needs a more up-to the minute feel to it.
The general opinion is that it’s quite good but could do with some more meat on the bone to stories that are most important such as high profile court cases, prolific criminals, traffic news, sports news.

Overall worth having.
