Needs to have dates on items I love the idea and the news but no dates on the news items makes it pretty difficult to like.

Sam Cached

Constant crashes Used to be good, now just crashes.

Sharelle Gale

Crashes constantly!!


Crashes constantly Weather it just closes or freezes while scrolling this app is unusable.

Joshua Gleeson

Crashes constantly

Maxine Holmes

Disappointed Not happy site closes when you try open story. . Disappointed;

Old News A news app needs to keep up with breaking local news. I can go to The Advocate web site or Google and see more recent news. Keep Up.

Rohan Hawkins

Good but needs work Pretty disappointed that there is no access to classifieds for job hunting purposes.

Ben Phillips

Didn't tell me which advocate... This is not the new zealand northern advocate. Also it has too many ads. And is threatening to not be free in the near future. Any of which on their own are a deal breaker. Uninstalled

Re-review After the latest update, the app STILL crashes most times upon opening. Rather than attempting to add new features, how about a debug and test on existing features?

Jason Shipton

Please fix App crashes as soon as you try to open a story.

A Google User

Crashes constantly This app didn't actually manage to load any data. Needs some serious testing, debugging and performance work as I'm on a brand new galaxy s3, I can't imagine people are having much fun on older devices.

A Google User

Samsung galaxy s2 Not even worth one star! Terrible app. Cant even open story without it forceclosing.

A Google User

Poor Takes forever to load, there is no way to tell which day the article refers to, text size is not adjustable, some pages only load the heading, poor.

A Google User

Rubbish. Crashes, takes forever to update,blank pages.

A Google User

Frustrated HTC Desire Even after update app force closes when you select a news story or topic

A Google User

Same as Frustrated HTC Desire App force closes whenever it is opened, does not update, extremely unreliable. May as well buy the paper or check Facebook as that is more up to date.

A Google User

Frustrating the moment it opens it takes an age to load (in this time i could have gone to the corner store and purchased the paper) then it hangs without recovery when i open an article. Even with the update it is unreliable.

A Google User

Half way there... Frequent FC, takes forever to update, please remember Android phones have a menu button, no need for 'iPhone' on screen menu buttons. No advantages currently over mobile site

A Google User

Terrible This is a slow app, never updates to new news , i am going to uninstall, i wanted local news but not 2 day old news.

A Google User

Crap This app has to many bugs, poor effort.

A Google User

Not good enough This app takes forever to load. It's quicker to go to the website.

A Google User

Great app So far so good everything seems to be functioning well

A Google User

FC on open Despite multiple tries. FC's on downloading data at launch. Will check back in after update. Galaxy Note ICS/4.04

A Google User

Sal. Samsung g2 All good so far. Looks great, works fine

A Google User

Happy Tasmanian Good stuff, even though it took 9 months to release after you released the iphone app!!

A Google User

Yay it's finally here:) So far so good, little slow on the downloading but that could just be my sh** phone

Rob Chelsea Ellisdon

Crap Keeps on crashing

A Google User

Crap Crashes all the time

Needs to have dates on items I love the idea and the news but no dates on the news items makes it pretty difficult to like. Also does not seem to work on Android Marshmallow.

Brian Gillespie

Good app. Stories current and much slicker than web browsing.


no thanks tried it - nope

Ruth Streets

No longer happy It use to be a great app until it stopped doing the National News months ago, keeps saying failed to update. Re installed twice over the months and never made any difference. Now the old news stays at the top and is feeling like it only gets news added as a last thort. Sorry but im no longer a fan of this app and will un install. Will just stick to advocate bookmark on my home screen n access it through the internet site.

Andy Brockbank

Rubbish The hard copy paper is crap and the app is just as good. Constantly fails to open correctly. No longer has space on any of my devices. Get more accurate news from the local gossip.
