Good news source, amateurish app
Roll Call is a great way to track news about the U.S. Congress and other branches of federal government. But the app looks and feels like the result of a high school coding assignment. Headlines and captions are routinely truncated, with no way to get the missing text. The top story is promoted with an annoying popup that frequently contains a picture and NO text. (I have yet to see it display a complete headline.) Photos and graphics are dumped into articles without scaling, so you only see about 10% of the whole thing. This might be amusing if the app had been designed as a guessing game. But in a news app — where the unscaled images mean lots of scrolling to get to the rest of the article — it's the opposite of amusing. Stick to the website.
Good News Source When it’s Not Closing Down
App freezes when opening up. Deleting, then reinstalling does not help. I noticed that this app’s last update was 4 years ago. Why was the last update 4 years ago? Someone’s fallen asleep at the wheel. Good bye!
