We would like to say we are back with a bang for this release, but for most of you, this is just a mere maintenance release that fixes some bugs, and has some behind-the-scenes updates… you know, the yawn-inducing stuff. However, for those of you who love a full-screen image, then we have an all-new gallery experience just for you! Galleries now offer thumbnails of upcoming images, and have more gesture controls, among other cool things for you to enjoy while you pinch and zoom!
Ratings and Reviews
Great app, keeps me up to date with local issues, as well as breaking news.
One criticism, older stories need to be removed quicker, as it can get a bit confusing after a few days as to whether it’s a new or old story. Otherwise spot on. It’s a 5 from me.
The app has gone from busy but interesting to sparse and unfinished. Content remains interesting enough but the user experience has gone downhill. Poor navigation is not helped by the fact that the tabs on the top of the screen are limited to four (three of which are variants of news and have a great deal of overlap). Sport is reduced to just a single tab - no ability to tap on Stoke City, Port Vale or even a Top Sports Stores tab. A weird approach to digital design, in which minimalism (or simple laziness) takes precedence over helping the user. Feels like it was done by somebody who has never used a news app. (Did you bring in a design agency? That might explain it.)
I hoped that the redesign would be tweaked over the past weeks, but that hasn’t happened. Nor has the new look proved any better after weeks of using it.
Anyway, all is not lost. A revamp, with better structure, improved navigation and more helpful layout could turn this around. Get working on it! (Please.)
Developer Response ,
Hi there, you can edit your tabbed navigation by adding any topic you like from the Discover View, this includes tabs for Stoke City and Port Vale, among many others. Tap the Discover Tab at the bottom of the screen, then tap the plus button next to any topic you want to see in your tabbed navigation. Or simply view that topic by tapping its name. There are many new features in the app, including Tag navigation, simply tap any Tag at the top of any article, to view more related content. We hope you will reconsider your review.

When I first downloaded a few months ago I was impressed with the local news and information available. This hasn’t changed, I use it most days! What has changed however and I know this may seem a little trivial, but the comments have been inaccessible for a number of weeks, it’s nice to view others thoughts on some of the subjects and to also voice my own so I hope this gets sorted soon.
