Overall I think sky news is an excellent news feed and I congratulate sky, and I would like to think it’s unbiased too, but just as a btw thought & example - I find it astonishing that for all those hundreds of thousands who enjoyed being furloughed on full pay for extended periods, who have had a tremendous financial & quality of life & health advantage, for which the other half of the country never had or will ever have the opportunity for, but more significantly, to my recollection it has never even been mentioned once in the media or political narrative , as a huge injustice, which is therefore conveniently been ignored, rather than any attempt to at least acknowledge & somehow redress/compensate those of us who had to carry everyone else. So my point is- has this narrative ever existed or just suppressed, & therefore the down trodden consequently oppressed, by the global establishments of money & power, but perhaps facilitated by the media? What’s missing is a forum for all narratives, not just what’s politically convenient. Well - you asked for my thoughts. Enjoy 👍

Filter option ?

1. It’s a bit to graphics heavy. Streamline it.
2. Put a filter/ignore option on for Pete’s sake. The Top Stories section which is the default is absolutely full of the Queens death with not a single story that isn’t related to her passing. I mean come on … I am a supporter of the monarchy but this is just ridiculous, the entire page, 29 news stories and 11 video sections, is about the Queen. Are there no other more important top news stories in the entire world for the last few days? Nothing ? People dying, wars, medical breakthroughs ? How about a bit of balance here! We need to be able to ignore topics so it filters them out of Top News so we’re getting a balanced view. Even World News section has the top 5 stories about the Queen before you get to an important story, North Korea’s decision to pre-emptively strike is far more news worthy. Realistically, as it stands today, World News should be Top News, with one or two stories about the Queen, and ALL the other 27 Queen stories should be put in a dedicated Monarchy/Queens passing section.

Don’t get me wrong, I am absolutely a supporter of the monarchy, always have been, always will be, but this is overkill. It’s way too much. It’s on tv, it’s in the papers, it’s across all the news apps, wind it in, it’s not right to flood this across the default story section on your app.

Up to date news and gossip 24/7

What I appreciate about Sky News items is the length of each item that are not too long. Also, for further reading on a particular news story, there are easy to use highlighted links taking me to similar topics. This is especially the case for Brexit, World News and Politics. Also the short videos bring the news stories to life on my iPhone and iPad.

Sky News is so much more interesting and engaging than any other news app and their reporters get right to the scene of a natural disaster, for example, when others sit in the safety of their studio. An example is Yemen and Syria where their foreign correspondents are literally with the soldiers on the front line. This makes their reporting credible which is a value I think has been lost to other mediocre news sources.

Sky News app is easy to use too with so much choice that I could spend hours and hours reading different news stories. This is good providing a breadth and depth to the headline stories of day. If like me you like credible and accurate news then Sky News app is for you.
