    Good unbiased news, though not so brilliant for a UK and Ireland news service. I live in Ireland and it is very UK based. Understandable I guess, but...... There is no Sky Ireland news. They used to have a Sky Ireland news, but that went a long time ago. I am British, but don't ignore that little country on the doorstep. Realise there must be many fewer Irish subscribers. But we do pay money also, but nothing other than foreign news. Reopen Sky Ireland news? Sky news is free, but I pay for it..

    I'm pleased with the reliability and content of this news app. I've given up on the biased BBC news on the TV and internet and have turned to Sky as an alternative. The ads are a bit annoying especially as many of them are about funeral services in my area? So, four out of five stars it is!

    I use this capable app a lot to see what is happening in UK and beyond and have a lot of respect for Sky journalism in general. But the app has worn me down by serving targeted ads that offend me despite all my use of the tools provided to stop this happening. Reluctantly, I feel I must delete the app to use other sources of news instead.

    Simple, quick - a good overview of the news. I can quickly get a sense of the major news stories, and select those I want to read more about. I recommend this app, no crashes, no glitches so far.

    As an 80s child with a sensible head in my shoulders I find that Sky News covers none of the topics that I don't care for. My only gripe are the clickbait ads that are prevalent across every page, but I can at least recognise them easily and can tune them out.

    One of the better news apps I've used, keeps up to date frequently. There's a lot of junk news when you scroll down, but they keep it at the bottom which is appreciated.

    Nice app, works well, but the live ski news tab is not able to cast to chromecast, which is a pity. It would be lovely to have that functionality.

  8. guest-avatar

    better than the BBC although limited in content, hope it gets more substantial in content. Usually quicker to respond to breaking news. Could do with more serious analysis items but still probably the most useful news app

  9. guest-avatar

    This app was excellent a few years ago. Now they push notifications multiple times an hour with 'breaking news'. Had enough of it and deleted.

  10. guest-avatar

    Concise and user-friendly app. News comes in as often as you want updates. High contrast display allows en 4o save battery. Great app overall. 5*

  11. guest-avatar

    Fantastic app, notifications are informative and concise, however sometimes the interactive things do not load or work correctly, plus the suggested links at the bottom are often shady at best.

  12. guest-avatar

    Excellent articles and a great alternative to the BBC viewpoints, which can be suffocating.

  13. guest-avatar

    Topic navigation is easy. Simple layout. Fresh graphics. Notification of breaking news useful.

  14. guest-avatar

    Quick and informative, easy to use and always up to date. Best news app out there.

  15. guest-avatar

    Really like this app but for some reason I can't always open items that I'm interested in. Would love your advice to fix the problem
