Although good European and French news coverage - poor use of screen space

Other than delivering the news, the next most important feature for an app is efficient use of screen space. Phones don’t have a lot of room to read so it’s important for application developers to do everything they can to reduce the size of fixed buttons and banners and use pull-down menus for navigation. Not everyone is a bonehead snap-chatting millennial stuck in portrait mode.

In the news thread mode, the “watch live” play button takes 20% of the screen space. After considering the wasted space elsewhere I feel like I’m reading with a screen the size of a ‘90s flip phone.

Needs Improvement

I use this app often but it needs a design revamp. It’s clunky and cramped. The videos don’t play in the background when you minimize the app. You also cannot play the videos in the background while looking at something else inside the app.

Also: PLEASE update the news thread so it doesn’t snap back to the top of the thread every time you exit an article. So incredibly frustrating and annoying.

Great news feed. Terrible app

France 24 provides up to the hour news about France and Europe. It often has in depth stories about relatively under reported topics, notably African issues.

The app and streaming are poorer quality than the content. The live video feed is often interrupted or fails completely. Some of this is intentional — the channel stops feeding live video to display a static splash page. A lot of it is just bad UX design.

Others have noted that the app quality is poor and it has remained this way despite complaints — a typical Gallic shrug to viewers from this otherwise useful news source.
