Ratings and Reviews
I love the new layout, but there is just one problem.
My iPad doesn’t get push notifications despite me setting that up and I have the same app on my iPhone and it DOES give me push notifications, which, I have set up.
I guess my advice is: please bring back push notifications for iPad.
Nice app, pleasing to view. Lots of news groups have these things, why use this one? Living in the USA I find myself more and more disdainful of the inept, highly opinionated and barefaced biases found on all the major (and lesser!) news sources here and western countries in general. They all have pretty apps too. I’m still in the first few days of trying this CGTN, hoping to find less opinions and just the facts. I can form my own opinions. So far it’s going ok. The opinion articles are clearly labeled as such in the headline. The live TV feature works well. So far my personal jury is still out as to whether or not CGTN will deliver the news in the manner I’m seeking but I’m giving them a good try and hoping for the best. Best of luck to them and thanks for their hard work.
Update after using a while...
Seeing many of the usual biases on USA reports. They parrot U.S. msm sources. Noticed the last story read was actually an AP story. I must assume the reports on China are similarly slanted. Deleted from device.
Excellent World-Wide Selection of Topics
I’m extremely pleased with your focused selections and coverage. Every country has its own biases, but your presentations appear to be fair and wide-ranging. I’m looking forward to future articles.
