Ratings and Reviews
Needs notification settings for types of news
News notifications are helpful but too many can be really annoying and distracting. Other news apps let you toggle which types of news are worth receiving notifications for. Like sports, regional, politics, arts, etc. I’m not a sports person and in April 2018 all these commonwealth games notifications are really working my nerves. Five stars when this improvement is rolled out!
When it works it's 5 stars
Super frustrating - recent updates are causing the app to crash at random
Good app. Lots of choices to listen to what you want, from news bulletins to podcasts. It’s the quickest way to listen to RNZ live.
Load times are a bit long though.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
