New version tv screen works but not intuitive

I had to read the reviews here to figure out what was going on with the app in my iPad, here is my review.
A. Screen appears small in landscape mode, the image is zoomed, and there is no little square with arrow to seize up the image. I thought that DW had decided to get rid of it.
B. The solution is to turn the iPad to portrait mode and then: touch the tv image to widen it, only then you can turn back to portrait mode and watch the news.
Please put the square by the image so we can enhance it without turning. I can imagine many people had the same trouble.
Content: 5 stars, 10 if compared to tv news in the US.

No Picture in Picture or closed captioning

I watch a lot of DW app on my iPad. I want to give this app 4 stars but I can’t. There’s no support for Picture in Picture. When I exit out of this app, I cannot use this app while in conjunction with another app. There are other news streaming apps, and safari that allows for this function. So I cannot look things up at the same time while I’m listening/watching the news at the same time. In addition to this, the lack of close captioning is alarming for a network of this size. No close captioning available when selected, same happened when I used to use the Apple TV app. I’m hard of hearing but it’s difficult to keep up sometime. I’m very grateful for the ability to rewind live as many times as I need to, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to keep up on both iPad app or Apple TV app. Please DW fix these these options.

Like your news but you need to update your App

I like reading DW at anytime I have, it’s trusted source for me or at least more reliable than others. But you need to upgrade your phone apps in the meaning that make it more easier to navigate menu, more touch supports, and bring us dark mode (I can only read well in dark mode)

Updated: you guys really to add “Dark mode” for better reading. I’m in dark mode all the time from computer and phone.
