普段から英語を勉強している側からするとNHK WORLD JAPANはリスニング力を鍛えるのに凄くいいと思う^_^。NewsだけでなくLiveやon demandもあるから全然飽きることなく見れる。

Needs some serious improvements!

I am very appreciative that there is a resource for accessing Japanese news in other languages (specifically English). The latest update has made some good improvements. However, there is still room for improvement.
1. The app needs to include a wider range of news stories, not just the “Top Stories” (i.e. sports, entertainment, local news, etc.)
2. Needs to include a search function.
3. Needs to have a “bookmark” function added.
4. Needs to include email sharing of stories. It has sharing to SNS, but not email.
5. The link within the AppStore to “app support” just takes you to the instructions and features of the NHK website news. It has nothing to do with the app itself.

Lack of contents.

Should have more contents and tabs for broader audience. Only 4 tabs which isn’t enough. Back stories should be placed in archive away from main page. Also, someone else mentioned this but the bottom right tab keeps popping up which is quite annoying. English translations? I give it 70%.
