番組が見つけにくいです

番組自体はとてもいいと思います!

ただ、レビューで既にご指摘がありますが、私も以前の方が番組が探しやすいと思います。サムネイルが大きすぎるため、無駄にスクロールする箇所が多いです。

使いやすさの方も考慮いただけたら幸いです。

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.

なんでニュースがデフォルトなの?

かなり使いにくくなりました。なんでライブ配信やオンデマンドの番組がデフォルト表示じゃないの?ニュース見たけりゃWebで見ます。頼むからせめて自分でアプリ起動時の画面をライブかオンデマンドに設定できるようにしてくれ。昔に比べてどんどん使いにくくなってます。改悪がすごいですね。
