Ja, wer kennt denn nicht die 20:00 Uhr Tagesschau?! For anyone, whether an Expat German, or an American, or non-German, who is trying to learn German, or learn something about the culture, the tagesschau is the famous German newscast. Yes, just like main stream, American media, they have gone all Wolk and left wing — as a moderate you cannot deny this, but it is still the well known and excepted source. Have you heard this crazy stuff they’re doing to the German language regarding gender norming? Well, they’re changing their whole language because of this insane sensitivity. But this will let you keep up with it all! And maybe we all come back to our senses, someday. The alternative China, and Russia take over the west! You’ve been warned!
English is my first language. I am studying German in a special Saturday school to improve my abilities with it. A main resource used in class is the 15 minute Tagesschau broadcast from Friday. With the app. I can watch the news from the Tagesschau to become very familiar with it. I can also find text versions of stories with unfamiliar vocabulary and learn it. If I watch through a Linux system I have the option of activating captions in German. Sometimes I would like to switch on captions on my iPad or iPhone, but I do not see a way to do it.
I wrote a review a few weeks ago about our problems with the updated app not connecting well to Airplay. Looks like you have fixed that and made some other changes to help the menus and choices be clearer. Thank you! We are back to our daily watching of Tagesschau 20:00 and Tagesthemen, and we really appreciate this easy access to good news coverage.
The Tagesschau app reports news in a factual manner (even though it tilts from the modest modern views a bit to the left). It does so in an easy to read, understand and sort through manner. It deserves 5 stars as it outshines the vast majority of other news cast.... most importantly, all articles are free, the way news and commentary needs to be ...
Great perspective on international and German news
I have a diverse background and my news sources are just as diverse. I use apps such as this one to sort through the spin to make informed decisions. This is a very good app and I especially enjoy the news in 100 second bursts, this allows me to then focus on stories that I have an interest in.
If you understand German this is a great way to get your news fix. However, since several months the app will start hanging after using it for a few days. The only way to fix it is to reboot the phone.
I’ve lived in Germany for a few years now, and this is simply refreshing when compared to American news channels. Here you can find clear cut facts & work on your German simultaneously. Two birds with one stone, oder zwei Fliege, eine Klappe:)
I peak in regularly on this news web sites as I feel it's more up to date and neutral than other sites in the US. Kind of sad to have to say such. But accuracy in reporting numbers and facts seems way better and speculative reporting is kept at bay. Good job. Keep its up!
Nobody needs the animation; it unnecessarily uses up disk space and crashes ALL THE TIME! I’d rather have a reliable app with still pics and text only rather than this imposter app trying to demonstrate motion for no reason. Please fix these issues ASAP. Also, please let me choose to exclude any sports news — don’t need that at all.
I concede the content and reporting is excellent. My complaint is that live stream in the app has not functioned for months. After reinstalling, deleting, and reinstalling the app, live stream still does not work. I have to go to the Tagesschau webpage to watch live stream.
I’m talking about the Apple TV app: after finally being fixed to actually work, it is impossible to see the 20 Uhr Tagesschau or the Tagesthemen. Really? That’s the point when not living in Germany, to see actual news. Please get this back to working for everything.
And use this app delivers is older than most other apps. For some unknown reason, any soccer games/tables are blinded out, which makes at least 30% of the video in viewable. I am German, I do love this news, but this app, watch from the United States, is completely useless. Also, the reviews are not public, until they have been reviewed. Now that changes this game completely. Non-objective reviews. Cabal app
I have an iPhone 6. I get to a point where the app freezes quite often (at least once a day). The app then has a blue screen when I restart it. At this point I have to restart my iPhone for it to work. Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn’t help. This issue happened with the latest update. Please fix!! The app used to be a lot more stable!
Every video starts with a black screen. Only by scrubbing forward to a point where it has to load will it finally show the picture. All that even after deleting and reinstalling the app. Please fix! Also, why can’t you add quick fast forward/reverse buttons like every video platform in the world has by now?
I am an American who uses the Tagesschau app daily to stay current on news in Europe and keep my German sharp. There are some long pauses while the next show queues, but overall this is a very good app.
The Tagesschau App stopped working on my Apple TV box a few days ago. Rebooting the box and reinstalling the Tagesschau App did not solve the issue. The Apple TV software is up to date (16.2.). All other apps on the Apple TV work.
The app's redesign is terrible. Too much whitespace forces the user to scroll more than necessary. Content continues to be great though: excellent unbiased news that aren't polluted with sensationalism.
I know that's a typical review title and everyone says that. But the Tagesschaus news is very straight and to the point. No ads, no interpretations. I highly suggest the Tagesschau for learners of German as well. On their desktop site, almost every video has subtitles. The app has a design that I wouldn't expect, but it does look very modern and is pretty easy to use.
As a German expat living in the US, I am extremely grateful for this app. It gives me access to high quality German domestic, European and international reporting in an easy to use app. Unlike most US media, the reporting does not already interpret events for me (like "Obama was mad", "Russia outraged about accusations" a.s.o., ad nauseum), but just reports on what happened, what was expressed in what form and in what context. It allows me to form my own opinion. This is one of my sources of trustworthy news. Had a number of app crashes in the previous version. Will see if the latest update today increases stability.
This app is very well designed. It is easy to navigate, and in particular it is easy to find relevant articles and videos. On an iPad 2 with iOS 5 I am finding no problems with the audio. I wish the video had somewhat higher quality, and also that it were easier to access a live tv feed. But these are minor complaints. Well done and thanks!
Very good app and user friendly layout. Convenient for very quickly getting the latest german news updates. The only thing I didnt like as much is that you can't highlight portions of text / copy paste anything from the app for some reason...
Great app, but do something about the tiny maps and inserts!
Update for 2.0 - minus 2 stars as now the design removes any quick overview of headlines and events, which was pretty good before. Almost useless now as a quick go to. Looks great, function is gone. Alternative now: n-tv Well designed and organized app. A pity that there is no way to magnify or open the complex but tiny maps and charts to actually be able to see the detail, as many of them are indecipherable in the portrait-only format of the app.
Watching the Tagesschau is always relieving. This is often the most objective and trustworthy source of information I have and this app gives me the opportunity to watch the news while cooking in an easy way.
I miss the old app. While the new is more fancy, it is also very unstable, lots of crashes. Vertical video have pixel video. It takes a lot longer to get a simple overview of all news. I guess all this change is to make the app less controversial with the court, now all is video, less text, or harder to find text. But also a lot harder to quickly browse need for you care about.
