Let us know how we can improve?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  2. Lead video should move when page is scrolled

    Lead video stays at top of feed when you scroll down the page- it also has only a headline and no sub copy. In trying to scroll past it it stays at top of page limiting the real estate for other content

  4. No 7news branding in sub sections

    In the current all 7news branding is maintained with category headings underneath- now it just says 'entertainment' (as an example) and I could be on any app

  5. Number counts on articles

    On each category it'd be nice to have the total number of articles in that category and what one you are currently on i.e. 4 of 15

    Would make it easier to know that there is plenty more articles in the category to swipe to.

    On the last article the next button still exists, previous button exists on first article, unneeded and makes it seem broken.

  9. Video carousel

    I find this really hard to control. I often swipe past the right point to play. It would be good if you swiped it locked the next video into place to make it easy to play

  12. Odd news

    For odd news I think you need to include the word "news" otherwise it seems a little odd (to excuse the pun)

  14. Viewer vote freezes the app

    When selecting viewer vote I get a message which says "rotate the device" but no matter what I do nothing happens. I cannot exit this screen either unless I shutdown and restart the app.

  15. Settings screen labels

    In settings the labels are as follows:

    Change settings
    Label

    I'm guessing it should be something else?

  16. Scrolling to bottom of videos

    If you scroll to the bottom of the videos list the very last video is cut off. You can only see half of the image.

    This could be because when you are in a category which has a featured video at the top, then when you go to the videos list the top of this list is offset by the size of the featured video section (ie there's a grey space above the first video)

  17. Featured video in a category fails to load.

    There's a large gap at the top of the category 'entertainment' which is where a featured video would go but it doesn't load so there's just a large dark blue space at the top.

    On finance it did load but it took a long time.

  19. ABC article attribution

    Need to confirm with legal (though caused an issue for multipass).

    We may need to have the provider attribution in an article. Also for abc articles, we can't have an ad breaking up the content ( ie no LREC in the middle of the content on a phone)

    I also love lamp

  20. Next and previous buttons on vide content pages

    The buttons are off screen on iPhone 5. You need to scroll down to see them below the ad.

    When you get to the last video content page (swipe all the way to the right) the next button still exists. It should be greyed out or removed.

    When you are on the first video content page, the previous button exists. Grey it out or remove.

    Double arrow indicates fast forward / rewind. Should it not be single arrow?
