On my Nexus 7 I have categories for Oscar Pistorius and for the 2016 elections. Was this app never updated to remove those? I often get an alert fire breaking news, but when I click on it, the app opens to the page I was reading last! Often I can't find the "breaking story".

L70%

Why is this app taking about 90mb in 15 min? It never used to do that! I've been a supporter of this app for years and now suddenly you are charging me huge amount to use it. Feel like deleting it now. I'm very disappointed........

News articles are reasonable. Good app if you're abroad and want to follow news. If you live in SA though, less trouble to go and buy the newspaper or go investigate the news yourself than to wait for the app to stop crashing

This app drained 150 mbs in a couple of minutes yesterday. (I was not watching videos) I couldn't believe it. If you concerned about rapid data drain keep an eye on this dodgy app

70%
by ####:

While the app is called News24 it is often filled with opinion piece articles rather than news. It is probably one of the ills of the digital epoch we live in but these pieces are often biased and advertise for particular political parties, reflect the opinion of who knows who, which aims to "lead the witness" rather than portray news accurately without favour, or more suited for an app called Entertainment24

Y70%
by Y####:

It sapped over 600megs of my data in 2 days! No videos. 75% was in the background apparently. Ridiculous.

M70%
by M####:

App used >1gb background data since the recent update (mid may 2017) . Absolutely ridiculous. Disabled until further notice.

70%
by ####:

App keeps on freezing and having errors and hence it has to close. Happens almost every time I use it even after updating it

70%
by ####:

236mb background data in 10 days... How??? Would make sense if I open the app and all articles are available for offline reading... They're not... Deleted. Will use the mobile website.

J70%
by J####:

Please support older versions of Android better - I am so over reading about Oscar Pretorius and long gone local elections!

Z70%
