Scrolling issues on new app version

Overall your new app looks great. Every so often, when opening an article, it only scrolls down to a certain point and then no further.
I’m running latest iOS.

I also like to listen to music or listen to podcasts while scrolling through the news or social media. Your app does not allow for that. Every time a video add comes along, it stops the sound. You would greatly improve user experience if you change that. I do understand that ads are part of the package, but most other platforms have video ads that do not interrupt music or podcasts.

IOS frustrating video glitch

Thanks for listening!! I updated a few days ago and the annoying video autoplay was gone... But then stepped in the “interaction freeze” which required a force quit and restart to solve...

I’ve just updated again and this seems to be solved now...

If I can make a suggestion though,
Please bring in the “spinning wheel” to show something is being loaded... from selecting the article to actual display on some articles takes between 5-10 seconds..

It would be nice to show that something is happening while you wait for a blank screen to pop up with what it is you want to see!!

I’m upping this to 3 stars for the effort you guys put in.

Once fixed I’ll test and take it up again to 5 stars!!


I run a iPhone X and I’m really frustrated...
Please please please solve the video glitch!!!

When an article is opened and there is a video linked in the article body or the advertising block then the video panel automatically opens up and try as you like you cannot close it.

Sometimes if you turn the phone landscape then it will close and take you back to the article!

This is most annoying because most of the time I have to force quit the app and restart it then go back to the article with the hope that I can actually get to read the article!

Maybe it is just me

Maybe my app is not probably set up. But all I see is scroll lists of news and it is just not what I am used to and have liked. For instance, I used to be able to go to the Sport page and was able to click on it and find my way to see which fixtures the Proteas would play next. Now I have no idea how to do that. It is really frustrating and not esthetically pleasing as well. What was the reasoning behind changing it. At least it is still acceptable on my PC in my browser but I hate the experience on my iPad. And what made you think we that have iPads like portrait mode more? I am older and need to see a bigger page and use my bigger keyboard. I misstype with a smaller keyboard and that is why I need landscape and that is why I use an iPad. I would not even consider it on my cellphone. Unfortunately, we are not all teenagers and our requirements are different. This is my personal opinion but I am sure there are others that feel the same.
