Nice application

Good application to get clean news. You can watch live news as well as live audio news. Only thing is that this application shuts down when listening live audio news and phone gets locked. Developers please upgrade app to run application in background while listening live audio news. Also request to please put LOK SABHA AND RAJYA SABHA TV. This will make it complete app.

Abomination of an app

This app is an insult to whoever was responsible in creating and releasing this app.

How can such a horrendous app be released to the App Store?

Please hire a design firm that designs to app that's useful and also looks good. Read up Apple's human interface guidelines.

I hope the app gives options to set language preferences.

Too much Hindi imposition. Have a filter that lets users select which language posts they want to see. Also, support languages other than English and Hindi.

Get rid of that stupid DD logo animation in the top corner. It's a relic of the 90's web design to have animating logo/text
