  • Notifications need to persistent Nov 3, 2020

    By Brianistgod
    When I get multiple breaking news notifications and select one, the others disappear making me lose the other breaking news story. It would be superb to the user experience if notification was persistent until you clicked on it, rather than all disappearing after you click one notification

    App only works on wifi, does not load articles on a data plan, my work colleagues were discussing thia recently and all said the same, app on cell data plans even with LTE+ rarely work, only on wifi. Can you look into this issue, I have it on both phones and none work without wifi.

    When I click latest news and I want to read an article. It takes me to a safari page. It doesn't open on the app itself. I'm a bit peeved about that. Sometimes I get confused using the app. But it goes without saying that this app deserves 4 stars for just coming into the biz.

    I like the app but the Ui has to be updated and more user friendly,it needs an overhaul and also an option to enable dark mode would be nice.

    I look forward to reading Loop’s news from the various countries in the Caribbean. Never had a problem accessing or navigating the app. Thanks Loop for bring these local Caribbean new stories to the diaspora (and the world in general)!

    Please fix your Comment section with Discus! Im trying to comment on a particular article, but the comment section that pops up is obviously related to a completely different story. For example: I mah be reading an article about a little girl who died in an accident, then the comment section that pops up voa discus is about Vibz kartel prison sentence. Only reason I gave 3 stars.

    I really enjoy this app but it crashes so frequently that it becomes annoying. Using it on iPhone X and iPad Air (3rd gen), both utilizing iOS 13.3. I’d also like to see news with some detail. Sometimes the headline is better than the story. Otherwise, it keeps me in touch and that’s not bad.

    Have found the app to be very useful place to get regional news. I hope it gets to have Dominica as a choice of location soon.

    App does what it is meant to do, but it could be updated to be much more modern. Inspiration can be taken from other news apps to make this one more user friendly. Something simple as swiping to change news articles for example.

    Whenever I am reading stories the app scrolls back to the top of the page. This will happen every 10 seconds making it unusable . Also, is it intended for the app to be unresponsive when refreshing a page? I mean, when i the page is refreshing I can do nothing and the lighting on the page goes dim. Edit Months Later: The app is still horrible. It brings news and all, but it's extremely unstable. I get notifications that I'll spend some time reading and all of a sudden the app will just close.
  • Useless. Keeps crashing on IOS Apr 11, 2019

    By Trish Antoni
    Installed and uninstalled in less than5 minutes because I couldn’t even get the app open. Why send out mass texts with news then force people to use your app to view them and the app isn’t functional?
  • Apr 25, 2019

    By Alicia Webster
    It causes ads to pop up on my phone even though the app is closed. I wouldn't mind if it came up while I used the app but it comes up regardless and during inconvenient times. I tested this out twice by installing and reinstalling and confirmed that it was this app. I have uninstalled it and no longer have that issue. I would prefer the old ways when the link in the text directed me to a website rather than to the app or maybe you can provide both links via text.
  • Need to be fix Dec 7, 2019

    Side bar only shows settings and nothing else. Please fix, I have a Samsung J7 2015 I uninstalled and reinstalled several times to no avail. Edit: I meant when you open the app, and swipe from the left side to open the panel, it only shows settings. Only when you tap the icon on the top left, the other options then show. Note that this only happens when the app is freshly opened, and not in background to reopen.
  • Randomly shuts down Nov 7, 2020

    I have 11promax max and spontaneously randomly closes sometimes while open a news article while reading it. That need to get fixed.

    Whenever I open news report and have read some of its content, the app gliches and return to the beginning of the report. This is quite annoying. I am sure if others are experiencing this problem, they would share the same sentiments. Please update ASAP.
  • Too many bugs Jun 11, 2016

    By Steve & Dans
    I love what this app is intended to do, it's usually my go to on a morning to get the latest news updates incase I don't get time to read the local newspaper. But there are too many glitches, it's unreliable, for over two days now, anytime I try to open an article on my iPhone or iPad, the app closes, how useless, I see headlines but can't read stories, get your act together already...good idea but needs a lot of fixes

    By Lesly Veve DMC
    Great news app with local language! That's all I use to stay connected in Haiti. I am just surprised that there isn't a section for published jobs. That would have been a great plus since people in Haiti are already used to job offers being published in the newspaper.

    I love to read this app but I was wondering if you guys could do a loop news for Central America including; El Salvador, Guatemala,Honduras,Mexico and Belize and could you guys make it a bilingual app so that if the articles are in Spanish it could be translated to English ✊🤝😊

  • Not bad for the Caribbean Jun 11, 2015

    By Bob Taylor
    This is an ok app for Caribbean info but clearly not a world class app. Would this compete with any of the major news organizations? No. Yet Digicel is as big or bigger financially. I expected more from Digicel.

    Ur page takes way too long to load in comparison to other news apps like the Gleaner and the Observer apps. Also, your comments section often displays comments from other articles instead of the one being viewed. Otherwise, a good app.

  • Needs work Aug 20, 2015

    By Will1am124
    Although the news has is OK I wish I could copy the news so I could let my phone read it to me and also I wish the links actually worked,makes no sense to put a link when you can't copy it to paste it into a search engine or you can't even click on it.

    It covers a wide range of well written current affairs. A great news source. However, it has this annoying habit of jumping back to the top while I'm in the middle of reading a story and by the time I scroll back to where I was, it does it again. That's truly a nuisance.

  • Poor Quality Content Oct 28, 2015

    By The Oncoming Storm
    If Loop hopes to be taken seriously, the quality of the journalism will need to be significantly improved. Articles are rife with grammatical errors. Stories are not properly developed. In some cases, you are left wondering if the headline got mangled somehow, as the point isn't properly developed in the body of the article. I would rather pay for a newspaper than read free news that is of such poor quality.

  • Issues with Loop May 11, 2017

    By tarplex
    Issues I encountered with the app are as follows: • When you change the country the app crashes. • When you hit replay on a video, the video stops and buffers without continuous play. • Some characters are not displayed correctly. Also, white-spaces are sometimes omitted. • You have to open a story to see the date. • Sometimes the menu items disappear leaving only Settings. • The view take a long time to refresh.

    By Courtland Holder
    The app is great for news but you are unable to read uninterrupted. I suspect the advert at the bottom is causing a refresh. Uninstalling until fixed
