Great for instant news & traffic updates

Very pleased with this - you can tailor it for your area and interests and it works without loads of adverts and pop ups spoiling the story.
My one criticism is local sport other than Argyle. Get the speedway, rugby & basketball on there please.

Herald done good. For once.

Plymouth’s local paper has long since needed to take a long hard look at itself; and consider its future. The new app is one way they have thought of this and come good. Clean,fast, easy interface and most importantly; no advertising which is where they went wrong on their website.
Well done herald. Very good app. Now all you need to do is sort out your journalism and editing and you will be half way to recovery.👍🏻👍🏻

Some nice changes but in general this is awful, difficult to navigate to different pages other than the four headers on the home screen, for instance if you want sport then unless there is a story in the news there is no link to go to those pages. Useless

Developer Response ,

Hi there, thank you for your feedback. As it happens you can access any topic you like from the Discover tab. Simply tap the category name and view the stories. Better still, you can tap the plus icon and add it to your navigation along with the 4 you already have in My News. Regards, The Reach PLC Apps Team
