Ratings and Reviews
This is a great app if you want to learn about Apple news
I happen to like this app because I am able to get official Apple news and rumors. I also look at articles within this application. I hope they keep up the great work. Also, if you are a voiceover user as I am, the articles are very accessible and easy to read. You can double tap on an article or articles you wish to read with voiceover and everything is right to you. I hope they keep this up and great work within the app and behind the scenes.
9 to 5 Mac
I will be focusing my review on the free version of this application. The 9 to 5 Mac is a solid Apple News application in terms of design but I find it to a bit lacking in detail as well as content. To start off with the positive the interface is simple to use with a smooth scroll down experience and a high quality background to read articles from. At the end of articles is You Tube related content and the ability to read more site featured content with a link to the website. Users can modify the interface theme and keep it light, make it dark or choose the automatic which I guess is based on the time period it is being used. The drawbacks include articles not being able to be saved to read later as well as the app not having a filter for commentary opinion pieces nor product sale pages separate from the daily news/rumor content. To read opinion pieces exclusively users have to go out of the app to the website. To me 9 to 5 Mac works best as a compliment to Apple News sources such as Apple Insider and iMore since they tend to give a more detailed analysis of the industry in whole while 9 to 5 keeps you up to date on what is happening and rumors on what could be coming down the line.
Good start. It would be great if you would add a payment model to get rid of ads. Also, adding 9to5Google and 9to5Toys within the app instead of popping out to Safari would be nice. Of course you've already told us you are working on split screen, etc. keep up the good work!
Update: you really need to work on page/story loading speeds. The app appears to be a thin wrapper for a Safari web view and should be much faster.
