Good but could be great

As far as news and information curation apps go it’s not bad. It’s easy to use, and good use of sectional partitioning for articles on the mobile app (which is all that I use). But to be great it needs to have its users more front of mind. It seems obsessed with getting our eyeballs on to the adverts; be they videos that auto play for 15 secs before you can watch a ‘news’ related video, or a pop up ad. I wish it didn’t play me the same ad multiple times. 2 tops; but when I’m scrolling through articles and those articles include videos, the constant pushing of the same video to me is infuriating; not to mention I am forced to watch it. Why can’t you just give me an opt out of video ads for a fee. I’d happily pay $40 a year to not be assaulted by video ads. Lastly it is really clear the bias towards whether an article allows viewer comments. So many of the controversial political topics or opinion pieces written by people with a clear bias don’t allow for debate through comments. Every article should allow comments. But I’m nitpicking. I use Stuff daily so it passes the toothbrush test as a mobile app.

Great concept, poor attention to detail

This app suffers the same problems as the website. There are so many little things that the developers have no done that make this app a waste of time... I liken the experience of using this app to a real world scenario where you are sitting at the tab”d reading the paper, but while you are reading page 3 some-one shuffles in pages from last Sunday’s paper and worse moves something from page 1 that you have read to page 4. It is eternally frustrating. 1) you have to open an article before you can bookmark it (you should be able to flick through the main page and mark articles of interest without opening them as you go (which is how the phone app works). 2). Articles persist in the main page days or weeks after you have read them - with no marker or indicator that they have been read. Worse still they reappear with a different title - so you open it only to find it is an article you read over a week ago. 3). Random rearranging of home screen. The home screen sometimes is rearranged, so when you return after reading an article - you have to start perusing the main page again just to find where you were up to. 4) articles do not have a date or time, some not even on the article, but ideally this should be on the main page.

C'mon stuff make the app stand out.

Issues

I use the app daily, what annoys me is if I exit out of app for some reason like check a txt, then back into app within a short time, the app has to reload so I then have to try and find the story I was halfway reading. Gets annoying. Never use to be this way,

Also I agree with other review, they pick and choose what story allows comments. So you end up going to the Facebook page, to add a comment, but I guess that’s their plan, the ads are annoying. ESP when you get to the video, and it’s not a video but photos. Why?

And a lot of the story’s news articles are always one sided, being a news site you need to be neutral, allow both sides
