  • Scottish news and sport with video May 19, 2010

    By scott in texas
    Great being able to get news and sport info complete with video overseas. App has quit a few times on me and have reported it. Worth downloading though.
  • Good content! Jul 1, 2016

    The content is good, but the mechanics of the app are sometimes lofty and bothersome. If I swipe just a bit to the left or right accidentally the whole article refreshes and I die a little on the inside.

    App keeps crashing, tried reinstalling it but still not working properly. It has been ok for months, this is a recent problem. Had a response to my comment, an update will be released next week. Good to know, thanks.

    Very very poor app. Sadly after not working for the past 10 days or so, I installed the latest all singing and dancing new version. I have been patient however it is garbage. Open it and when I try to go back or exit it, it point blank refuses to play and has to be shut down in other ways. Would give it 0⃣ but that's not an option... Unfortunately

    Why was the sports section removed? It’s a strati always fact more people want sports news that current affair news.

    Although I have been using this app for many years it unfortunately developed a problem back in February where my keyboard pops up on the screen of my Galaxy S9 whenever I try to change news pages and I have to come completely out and go back in to read another page. I did notify you of this back in February and have uninstalled and reinstalled this app on several occasions to try and clear the problem but unfortunately to no avail; the problem is still there. Any suggestions please??????

    Had the old app for a few years never had any probs until recently when it started to crash. I have since downloaded the new app and it won't allow you to read any articles unless you agree to accept all cookies now there must be at least 100 vendors which might I add you are not allowed to deselect!! Very disappointed STV. At least the other news apps allow you to deny cookies....

    Crashes after startup every time. Update : I have updated the app as suggested and it initally didnt do anything at all. New splash screen. Then it just started doing exactly the same as the older version. As soon as the new app starts it closes straight away with a crash screen. I have unistalled and reinstalled from scratch but exactly the same.

    Had this app for years and was very happy with it until a couple of days ago when it stopped opening up. I have tried everything including uninstalling and reinstalling it clearing cache and data and restarting my phone but still the same. Very disappointed as I used it all the time.

    Nope not great app when opened you cant come out of it with back button you have to go to you opened apps and close or comd out of it from there. Font changes size depending on how important they think story is. Got to put in region everytime doesnt save your choice. Not the best app old version was much better. Needs bit of work to it.

    Had this app for well over a year now but in last couple of days as soon as you open it, it closes immediately. Tried uninstall and install a couple of times no joy. Anyway they took ages to update news, especially at weekends, really disappointed with its performance.

    Constantly closes a second or 2 after opening making the app totally unusable. Not the first time this has happened either. I thought this issue had been fixed months ago but it's come back again. Terrible app.

    RUBBISH. always crashing. Font size changes randomly throughout story. When you go to share a story it copys and pastes a different one. Avoid. *update* After stv's latest update it's STILL freezing and crashing after you look at one article. HOW HARD IS IT TO MAKE A BASIC APP???? you might as well not bother. Pathetic.

    This used to have really good app - till the developers meddled with it! The weather part in particular is awful - it even let me set my home town. I've apparently moved from Tayside to the Highlands despite me tapping location! PLEASE put it back to the way it was!

    This app has been running perfectly until very recently, now the app opens and then crashes immediately, Android 9 on Xperia XZ Premium, so the app is hardly taxing the hardware. Unistalled and then reinstalled keeps crashing someone please address what has changed and get the back up to it's usual 5 star rating 😥

    Past few days app will not load, keeps crashing and I have reported this, no response and no1 interested in fixing it, was good for local news although updating stories could be a few days behind, tried uninstalling and reinstalling so wouldn't waste your time, delete and be done
