OK - but …. Often out of date or the news links fail

Mostly works ok but on a lot of occasions when clicking on a story link it frustratingly leads to a completely different story.
Today for example when clicking on any one of the Edinburgh story links, the story that opens is about photoshopping on the Queen’s photos which has absolutely nothing to do with the initial story clicked.

The news stories are also often slow to update and you often find that the area/regional news sections remain populated with old stories for several days after the event, which lets STV news down and doesn’t make the app a go to source for Scottish news.

Has potential

Update: Contacted by developers who took suggestions on board. Can now click region heading and even set a favourite region 👍 Many thanks 😊

Still no ability to go directly to regional sections. There should be the ability to customise the sections and have a default region which opens first. Clicking on region headings at the top of the story should open the region but you have to find a story from a region and go into it before you can then get a hyperlink for a region - not intuitive

Developer Response ,

Thanks for taking the time to leave a constructive review - we really appreciate it. We have taken your feedback onboard and have made the region labels clickable and you can now select your preferred region from within the settings to show in the top menu bar.

A fantastic improvement on the previous app

It’s such a good uplift that any critique in the new version feels unfair. That being said, I think you need a footer on your news articles. They currently just stop and it feels undefined. Other than that 👏👏
