Unable to read Newspaper Editions Money was deducted from my account yesterday but I am unable to read the newspaper editions. I get a 401 error, saying it is unable to check in. Please help! It was a good app before I encountered this problem.

Subscriber - Disappointing Service Still not working on Tab 2, Ice Cream Sandwich. Developers have asked to update android system as it seems that the app is not compatible with ICS!

lwazi sondezi

Good app destryed by latest updates Keeps saying loading......

Shane Fowler

Useless It doesn't work. I see the headlines but when i try to read the articles i just get the advert to subscribe and then it stops working. I have sent the error reports.

Stefan Le Jeune

Can't stop recurring billing. Don't subscribe as there does not seem to be a way of stopping recurring billing. Some months they double deduct too. No support from emails. Will have to cancel credit card?

Rodemire Tarazone

Payment Options I have a Google Play voucher. I can't seem to use it to pay for a subscription. Can this be made available?

Lee Catterson

A bit like buying the morning paper and reading yesterday's news?? I don't get the need for this. There is so much free news on the net which is updated almost live, this app is not. Probably nice for some who don't care about up to the minute news. Thanks but no thanks.

George Rushby

Very Slick App My news dashboard has never been so sexy. Great Job

Nadiem Abrahams

Njabulo Khuzwayo

Its sounds interesting but ngzoke ngibone ngiphawule kahle after free trial.

Byron Bothman

Useless Keeps wanting money, news is free, what kind. Interface is kak as well. Shitty app. Come again.

Simoné Van Zyl

Absolutely Loving It! Brilliant, user-friendly, fast, excellent support team and access to all of the best publications! Works great on Jelly Bean.

Subscriber Current editions are not being displayed. Showing editions from 10 days ago and updates are not working - please fix

June Julyan

Does not work I have been paying for this app now for about 4 months with no access. I reported it got some suggestions but then no response when these did not work. I want my money back and a working app. I object to paying for no service

Kennedy Mudzuli

Five stars Simply the best!

Needs one thing Please include a "share" option for thev "live" section (I couldn't see it) so we can share articles. This would also boost your app's reputation via social media. Win win scenario ??

It's the most pathetic user interface I've come across. The older version was much better. I uninstalled as the desktop version is more suited for a filtered UI The older version was much better. I uninstalled as the desktop version is more suited for a filtered UI. Developers should use their brain to enhance the IOL experience instead of downgrading it

Schalk Maartens

Updated apps does not work at all I used to love IOL's app but both old and new one is not working anymore. If you click on a link it takes you to a whole different story and is no user friendly anymore

Murray Hoppe

Terrible - Very Buggy Each time you scroll down it refreshes and pulls u back to the article at the top. So frustrating!

Ian Marais

It's great to have all the news at my fingertips!

Johan Mynhardt

Really sleek! It was a good app before, now it simply rocks with a smooth UI and great user experience.

Patience Moyo

App is not working now I'm subscribed but getting authentication failure error 401. Help please.

Johannes Hannes

This is a great app for news and more

Disappointed once Again as a Subscriber Email support and still no satisfactory response to the issue. Fifth day and still they do not seem to be concerned about their subscribers. PDF version download is no longer available since the last upgrade. Please fix the issue, as I am paying and not able to use the app in the way I would prefer. After Six days the pdf downloads are once again available. Inconvenienced for almost a week as I could not make use of the app as previously.

Arno Cloete

PDF Downloads gone Why are the PDF downloads no longer available. I am paying for a service I am not getting!

Sanelisiwe Funani

Pdf version Why are pdf Downloads not available on my profile while my account is paid and up to date?

Sanelisiwe Funani

Since yesterday (07/07/2016), the classifieds section has not been available for download on all newspapers. Why has it not been available?

Antwan Tablet HB

Subscriber Updated to latest version, no joy with updating content. Un-installed, re-installed, content updates seem faster now. Remember to check on this issue for future updates

Gita Raposo

IOL Dailies and weeklies should be separated for quicker selection. Flagship of group should be listed at top. Otherwise a real great app.

Kamlesh Ranchhod

Miles beyond News24 Doesn't refresh quickly. No times and dates below headlines so you don't know whether you are reading a story from last night or last week. Not user friendly at all. Content is great, but work needs to be done on the app layout and presentation

Clinton Bosch

Great app, use it every day

Antwan Tablet HB

Subscriber Version 3.2 Build 3020099 Once again, after upgrade, there are issues - PDF download starts and does not complete downloading. Update - Day 3 and still PDF does not complete downloading. This seems to be happening only on the Tab. Pay the subscription and you may not have full access for up to a week after an upgrade. Samsung Tab4 7.0 SM-T231

Johan Mynhardt

A minor irritation When going back from an edition (not the home news feed) it takes you *all* the way back to the menu, so you need to go to the title list again.


Not a single newspaper loaded Saturday 3 September

Arno Cloete

Subscription and PDF Downloads not accessable For the while month of July I have had no access to Pdf's!!!!!!!! This is my third complaint. And now to top it all, I am suddenly not subscribed anymore! This app has gone from good to bad to useless.

Way better than news24 Best SA news app. Can pick your favourite titles like The star, tonight, personal finance.
