The app does nothing but slow the iPhone to a crawl an eventual lock it. Perfectly useless. Deleted. Figure out a way ads can be used before the app disintegrates. Sorry to say it’s be delete contact me when it’s bed upgraded. This used to be a great app to get headlines worldwide. It had the fastest Push Notifications. Now it’s extremely frustrating to use and I no longer get Push Notifications. The barrage of ads make the app jumpy. It freezes or scrolls backwards. Ads load, pictures may load. The story may be there for a second and then vanishes. Comments take to long to load if the do. The longer you’re on the app the worse it gets until it freezes completely. You need to cut back on the ads to make the app functional. As it is they use up all the bandwidth so there’s nothing left for the articles. It’s been updated several times and seems to get worse with each update. Please fix it or remove it until it’s usable. Right now it’s complete trash.
A nice working app. I didn’t have the same issues as some other reviewers. If you subscribe on the webpage (not the app) you get a month free trial which I’m grateful for as some of the commentary I heard after the atrocious El Paso shooting were unacceptable. An i24NEWS desk person inaccurately described what our President has said in the past about the Mexican people. They I pay careful attention to daily news and rest assured you can get the very same wrong 24 hour streaming info for free from the very slick and well made CBS app. I am so disappointed in i24NEWS, I had my hopes up they would be a cut above. The 24 hour stream features s Spanish speaking hour that had some interesting bits on South America. Sadly this news service is not for me, that’s why the 3-star rating. Well worth a try though as it might suit you.
I thought it was my phone until I read the reviews. Maybe this App is ready for a miniscule group of people that have the newest phones with cutting edge processing. Or maybe this App requires 5G. I am okay with the notifications, but the App is not worth my time freezing, waiting for the news following all the ads. Here is my comment from another reviewer. It outlined everything above but in great detail back in June!! 100% my issue. Very happy I didn't need to spend time. Again, this review made every single point--better than I could have. The App is atrocious--fire the developer--crowd source from India--do something before you lose more viewers and advertisers!
The app delivers fast breaking news. It’s not limited to Israel but also domestic headlines. You get a lot of alerts. The bad: when paying for the Live access, it comes and goes. You are locked out having to reach out and reset your password. Account is handled through Cleeng which has the worst possible customer service. They (Cleeng) can never be reached. You receive a “server is down “ message when reaching out to them. Stick with the regular I24NEWS app which is free but, stay clear of paying for the all access.
It’s the only news that matters. All that is happening in the Middle East has being played out time and time again though your own history. I pray that God is on your side this time and you heed His requirements that He ask of you.
Were it just for the content of the headlines and news I would rate this app with five stars. However, the app has a lot of bugs, which make scrolling through and reading articles sometimes very hard, or sometimes impossible, due to too many pop-ups
I24NEWS recently upgraded their app. I believe it was done by a school kid who has no user experience. The upgrade should be seamless and not require such effort to simply start the app and watch the news. Nothing works and there is no help or customer support. Canceling the subscription is all that is left to do and save some money.
I subscribe to i24 live stream, but the news on the app is too cluttered with ads. Sure you want to bring in more money, but you’re taking away the allure of your focus: clear and concise news from Israel and around the world.
I am having constant difficulties to get the service of I24news most of the time I am getting a black screen ! I like their platform I like the transparency of the News I have them on my TV as well but the Laptop impossible and problems on my IPhone go figure !
It goes into loops and there is no way for the user to stop it. You show videos, that end and freeze. Again, no way for the user to delete them and move on to another subject. Worst News app due to completely incompetent programming I have yet seen. Shut down and reprogram.
I installed the i24 app hoping to be kept up to date with Israel related news. Instead of getting real news alerts I have been receiving spam into a newly created “breaking news” mail box. Do not use this app unless you want to increase your spam!
I love the app, but the live video does not have any audio with it. I can switch over to the website and watch it live there and there is no problem. Just inside the app. iPhone 5s - with 7.1.2 I hope you guys can get this fixed.
WISH YOU WERE ABLE TO WATCH I24NEWS THROUGH YOUR TV PROVIDER ON THIS APP LIKE ALL THE OTHER NEWS CHANNEL AND TV APPS BECAUSE I24NEWS REALLY IS A GREAT INFORMATIVE CHANNEL BUT IM ON THE GO TO MUCH TO SIT AND WATCH AT HOME BUT ID LOVE TO WATCH ON MY IPHONE AND IPAD.....
I am an Arab, and here is my 2 cents on this international news channel from an Israel point of view; politically and personally I am as left as they get, and lay blame on Israeli hawks for apartheid policies against the Palestinians, nevertheless I do welcome this channel to also give an Israeli perspective to an Arab audience in our language, Arabic. I do pray that the Jews and Arabs understand they are one big family, and it's enough fighting for sand and dirt. Also hoping not to hear so much propaganda that kept our people apart for decades be kept to a minimum on this channel. Dear Jews we don't want to push you into the sea, we know you love our hummus, so can't we just get along? ~Love from a Babylonian
I rated the previous interface with 1 star because I could not give it a zero. This new interface without an opening advertisement is 5 stars. Also, the addition of a Washington DC site with reports from there show the attempt to be a credible news organization. If they work at fair and balanced reporting, they could compete with Fox News in a few years. Some of the reporting especially about the U.S. election was extremely biased mocking Trump and pushing Hillary as the only real choice. Reporting needs to be fair and balanced.
The i24news app which operated on smart phones and tablets will not run video in the background. This means that when using the app you are unable to do any other functions on your device which is particularly not suited for ipad and tablet users that are used to using their device for multiple functions at once. On a regular computer browser the video can continue running while other tabs are open or the computer. Is running other functions, but not on any of the mobile devices.
This is just a channel for leftist, anti-zionist, propaganda.
I've tried to use i24news (English) to keep up with "Operation: Protective Edge". I was just amazed at the amount of ultra left, self hating Jews, that they are putting on camera. I've watched for 7 days and i24news (English) has found every defeatist in Israel to put on camera and tell why they think "Operation: Protective Edge" will fail. The comments and ideas these left wing defeatists have are so far from reality it would be funny if they didn't really believe these things and have a platform like i24news (English) to spew them from. May Israel live forever in spite of these inside haters and detractors.
Excellent news and perspectives, but both the app and the online streaming versions have been greatly compromised by too many advertisements, and technical and navigational dysfunctions such as the online site not connecting after running the ads. I agree with the other reviews that the older version was far superior in just being able to access it. This unfortunate because i24 is one of the best balanced source of news and events from the Middle East.
I love this App and I love i24 as a new source, but I read my news on the subway, where is no internet connection. I do like the refreshed version of the App - much more current looking - but it seems that most of not all of the articles are now available online only. I don't get any news when in offline mode, essentially rendering the App useless. Can this be addressed please? Thank you!
This app works great on my iPhone, my iPad and my MacBook Pro. I love this news program, it is up to date and you will find out a lot of news that we don't get from the news media in the States. It comes to you in 3 languages. French, English and Arabic. Thank you!
I rarely use the app, but it has some of the best breaking news push notifications for MENA related events. App itself has a ton of adds and can be improved, but the notifications means I give it five stars.
Ads are an annoyance but it's the nature of business. At times when tweeting for example, when you want to put your comment the tweeting Windows just disappears. Once is ok, twice its already a pain and the no matter how much you try it just doesn't apply. New, they should be more instead of just standing idle.
I love i24 especially when it comes to Middle East reporting. I mainly use the reading version and it is always promote and right on time as news happens. I enjoy the Defense weekly roundup also. Thank you i24. Long live State of Israel
