Ratings and Reviews
Keeps me abreast of news and events without getting under my skin in simple language . I believe a fist to market with a hands off hands on approach to reading / shuffling through NEWS. Nicely done!
Specific and to the point . Gives adequate timely information leaving the reader to decide to dive further in depth on that news bit /subject. At first downloaded the app for fun sake but use it more that I thought I would .
May I recommend to add an extra photo where possible please?
Good job guys ...keep it up!
News updates are quick, headings are sometime ambiguous and interface need improvisation.
I think more simplified words should be embedded in description of the news, since main idea of the app is too make concise and to the point current happenings. Most of the times heading and description also are ambiguous which prompts one to read full article and then spent time to get the basic idea which feels back to square one as oppose to the purpose of app.
The interface should include features like list of all news so one could jump to that news directly instead of swiping all the way to the required news. Also, left app swipe and clicking on link below for the full access of article is same which is waste of a feature.
Useless updates = unoptimised mess
With no notifications on, the app is on only when I'm using it. And it takes no more than a minute to start heating the iPhone! I've 11 and se2, facing issue on both, running iOS 14.
It could be due to the ads always loading up, but it eats battery like I'm playing some heavy game. And hence the heating. If 5 minutes later i switch to another up, i find out that my apps are loading up again, implying that it also eats too much RAM. For such a simple app, this isn't at all someone would expect.
I'm writing this review because i was just reminded by iOS that I've not used inshorts in a long time and might wanna remove it. I used to use it all the time, and here we are now.
Hoping soon for an update, or delete this app I'll have to.
