Crashes all the time and not optimized for tablet use, totally useless
I installed the app for quick news coverage. This is not the case when I use the app.
Still cant play videos on my Huawei p8..... Why?? Plays other videos.
The overall layout is poor and slow, the color scheme is good tho.The toolbar should parallelax up with the scrolling as it doesn't work sometimes, ads should be as items in your list view or recylerview don't know which one your using but you can generate more ad revenue from that.
Well done to the TVNZ graphics team I really love the look of the app now.
I feel the app is better than previous, streaming works but i have a newer phone which no doubt helped. One issue now though is scrolling back up the news feeds seems to fail quite often like touchscreen not responding, but can't for the life of me replicate anywhere else in phone, any clues?
Latest version (Sep 16) is a step backwards as it now freezes every 2 minutes while watching news live. Just pauses for 10 seconds and then carries on from where it left off. Was adequate before and now isn't.
Surely there is enough news that 75% of the content doesn't need to be sports. Please add a sports column that keeps the sports out of the news column, then everyone can be happy. It would be easy to have an option to set your default news feed from "News" to "Sport", if you are so inclined.
News part is OK. But weather seems to only be for Auckland with regionals as an after thought. I doesn't pick out location to give feature local to me.
I cannot find a way to turn off News update notifications on from this app. Have I missed something?
Doesn't seem to support Google cast. Was hoping to stream news to the TV while overseas.
News we can rely on
Best app ever
Allow the notifications to be turned off. Also allow notifications for selected topics. Stock of rugby. Rugby is not news, nobody cares about it. Stop the spam. Video doesn't work on Nexus 5X and 7. Current version of app. Cleared cache and reinstalls. These are the devices it should be designed for.
All videos stream fine (HTC One Android 4.4.3) . But do we really need a 15 sec advert video beforehand on every single news video. That's ridiculous.
App is okay, stable, works fine. I'd pay to get rid of the banner ads. The let down is the news itself. Too brief, too few details lot of raw footage with little to no context. Might be quick news but with so little detail its hardly worth it.
One down fall, the sports highlights are not long enough, they are only 16secs long some 20sec long, please put the full highlights as do other news apps, but overall great app!!
App worked well in the past but video stopped working and still no good even after reinstalling. Shame as it was a great app. Partner has the same problem. Please fix as it was good.
I have an S4 with 5.0.1 doesn't work, ads do then blank screen. Have Samsung Tab A 5.0.2 same thing. How come you say it works but doesn't. Don't you read the feedback? The update has resolved the issue. Thanks.
Even with two tabs (News or Sports)at the top of the screen to choose from, I still counted 26 sports items in my 'News' feed this morning. What is up with that? What is the point of making us feel like we have a choice, when clearly we dont.
Have a galaxy s6 and can't get videos to play.
No good if you can't play through the tv
Can barely get 30 seconds before the live stream stalls..
Would really like to see support for casting to devices like chrome cast.
Every clip starts with a 15 second ad. Now??? Seriously.....
Is it possible to turn off the breaking news notifications??
Breakfast use to work but this week nothing...no live stream
Live news just freezes
Updated player fixed it,thnx. ☺
No way to turn off notifications. Please fix
But no Chromecast support?
Only live streaming works no other videos stream! Good idea to get that working ae idiots..Update: I'm serious I can't watch the videos this can't be up to date?down to 1 star you've had long enough
