Sick of it freezing! I usually love this app but for weeks now it constantly freezes, won't let me scroll through stories and won't let me open some stories. It's the only app doing this on my phone. Can you please fix this problem.

Greg Miller

Terrible Freezes on a story and can't be scrolled. Keeps crashing regularly. This kind of thing happened to apps when Android arrived on the scene but things should be better now. The only app I have that still regularly crashes. No shareability either.

Geoffrey Shaw

S5? Don't bother I loved this app on my S2, could not fault it. Since moving to the S5, it is rubbish. Now I can't even get through one article before it crashes. Very, very, disappointing. I have uninstalled the app as it is truly that useless.

Grant Anthony

Stops working everytime. Well done. Great app.

Michael Clarke

Does not work with latest android update

Ian Scanlon

Crashes all the time Works on my galaxy s3, but can only read 1 or 2 articles on galaxy note 8 before it crashes. Won't scroll through articles properly, it seems to only want to display 2-3 articles when scrolling. Was contemplating the paid version, but even that doesn't seem to want to download the sample file & now it won't update national news articles :-(

Russell Harris

Useless Would like to try it once it works. Can't get through one article as it constantly freezes.

A Google User

Doesn't work on new Phone - S5 Freezes constantly on my samsung S5. Can't use at all :-(

Andrew Muir

Frustrating Unusable, crashes every 5 seconds

andrew weatherstone

Crashes Crashes often. App will only display some articles. Most do not load.

Edward Bycroft

Used to be good The app used to work on my s3 and still does just upgraded to the s5 and now it freezes the phone each time i download please fix this issue

A Carter

Garbage app Constant freezing and stories that scroll barely halfway through before locking up

Dale Mitchell

Waste of time Freezes up every time its opened.

Garnett Cosgriff

Still learning its hard for old dogs

Connor Boyd

Unbelievable This app has very shady permissions like accessing your camera when you aren't around and others. As well as a huge battery and data drain. WORST APP EVER.

Tim Holmes

Terrible The android version of this app is just truly garbage, the iPhone version s**ts all over it. Tiny thumbnails in the photos section is a joke especially. I'll leave the content review for word of mouth...

Krystal Patterson

High data Thanks soooo much for using 3.6gb of my data today....can not get that back at all and I know it was from this app.

Hilton Goodsir

It just blew 700mb This was good. I used it this morning to look at an article and all of a sudden my data just blew out of control. Uninstall. Now I have to pay money to avoid excess data charges.

Brendan Small

Crashes all the time Good app when it works... It crashes all the time and locks up my phone.

Matt Williams

Huge Data Usage!! Caution do not install! This app used 812MB of my data in about 1 minute of usage. Thanks Newcastle Herald. Are you going to pay my excess data charges? Not to mention the repeated force closures. Uninstall. Never to use again. Very unhappy.

Ingrid Wall

A great app and free on Android! Bug fixes have now made this a great app

A Google User

No data from the server?? Will not load. Worked fine before update. Uninstalling until fixed.

A Google User

No server I didnt update. It was working well but now tells me no server. Updated but still crashed

A Google User

L Does not work even after installing twice. Please fix.

A Google User

Still not working So the crash issue is fixed but now it says they can't download from the server! Please fix.

A Google User

And I thought it was me... My Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.2 was constantly crashing using this app. So glad to see it's not just me. This app has a very low maturity, so maybe not good idea to be running competitions solely via this option! #myway

A Google User

Junk. This app is junk, does not load.

A Google User

Fail Not worth the frustration, crashes repeatedly, can't find server

A Google User

Shame Worked great, until yesterday. Won't load at all.

A Google User

A Google User

Samsung galaxy 2 Cant open keeps crashing the phone even after re install.

A Google User

Easy to use Had no problems navigating around the app. One of the easier news apps around.

A Google User

Classifieds? Either I can't find the classifieds or they're not in the app.

A Google User

Crashes constantly Crashes every time I try to add a photo to the my hunter my way competition

A Google User

App stopped Every time I open it it stops, look forward to when it works

A Google User

Stevo Freezes often and force close all the time

A Google User

Hope it improves Installed on Nexus One and app crashed after about 5 min. Link in main news to a video didn't link to a video. There isn't any option to comment on stories or provide feedback.

A Google User

Simple Crashes often...limted content...

Simon O'Rourke

Garbage Don't bother. Hasn't been working for months, no one at The Herald seems to care nor does anyone respond to any feedback.

Ian Scanlon

Useless - cant read articles Update - The app installs ok on a Galaxy S6, but will now only display 1 full article (pictures & text), after that you only get pictures - Don't waste your time downloading

Jen Lovett

This app is terrible When you tap on a news item, the app tries to resize the article and makes it too wide to view. It's a clunky awful app that I will delete immediately

Geoffrey Madden

Doesnt work Doesn't work very often and news stories aren't very up to date.

Gavin Carstairs

Pathetic I thought they may have fixed this app in the 6 months since i uninstalled. Nope. Terrible. Text in articles grows to unreadable size. Sluggish and slow. Awful app. Uninstall again

Geoffrey Madden

Doesnt work Doesn't work very often and news stories aren't very up to date. Worst app for media there is.

Christopher Sullivan

Full of bugs Can't read articles. The text constantly scrolls across and down the screen on galaxy note 4.
