Keeping it simple, you're not.
The newsfeed on their mobile website is 100% better and more efficient for users than the app. On the mobile website newsfeed headline text is emphasized by using a white background and bold black text. This design provides for quick and easy browsing, reading, and identifying keywords relevant to a user. On the app, overuse of graphics and decorative font in place of the white/black makes browsing the newsfeed a much slower, distractive, and inefficient process. Selling the steak, rather than the sizzle, is much better for long term business. In this case, the steak is the news. The sizzle is the graphics.
Good content. 1 extremely annoying flaw
Tons of good content. Definitely recommend the app. BUT, trying to read through articles is difficult. The hyperlinks activate crazy fast! Trying to scroll down on my phone it always acts like I’m clicking on links and forwards me off to something else. Even with the slightest of swipes. End up hitting the back button 4-5+ times just to get back to and finish the article. Good product, but sometimes it’s annoying enough I just close it and move on.
Notifications not working
Update: the tweets section is not loading
It's a relief that the startup crash bug was fixed. But now notifications no longer get pushed from BenZinga, even the notifications tab within the app doesn't get updated with current notifications.
I like the news section, and to easily see how the different sectors are doing today, the notifications are really helpful for just spur of the moment big news.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
