Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely rubbish app...would have given 0 starts if it was possible.
The App keeps forcing you to signup, it won’t even let you read the free stories even for those it keeps pushing you to sign up...deleting it now!
Shame it used to be such a good website to browse and read articles, if they needed to charge they should have put smalls fees not the ridiculous amount they asking + if some articles are free the app should let you read them not keep opening a pop up window where you have to sign up and can’t close it.
Sad news now subscription only
I have been using this app for 8 years
Its a very basic sponge for news in sweden.
However the articles are pretty much basic things- not in depth articles. Junk news really.
Fine without subscription - but utterly pointless for 49 euro per year. Im happy to subscribe to apps that give me a lot - im also happy to contribute to the guardian uk for example..
But the quality of the news on the local is just about at a level of a free paper like the metro.. just translated into english. See you later - local!
This used to be a great app for a quick glance at the news in various countries. Everything is behind a paywall now; would have gladly donated (even if it were compulsory, of an amount of my choosing).
Alas, another reader gone...
