    "Indian News: Everything"

    THE VERDICT

    DD News is a news reader application that presents news stories about India, everything you need to know about what's happening in the country. The application features stories about economy, culture, politics and social aspects, as well as a Live TV and some videos to increase engagement and get better details.

    THE PROS

    The design of the app is great: clean and professional, with every section being accessible and fast. Content is available in English, Hindi, Urdu and Sanskrit languages, so you don't need to worry about understanding each news.

    THE CONS´

    We couldn't watch the Live TV, so our experience with DD News wasn't as satisfying as we'd like it to be. However, besides this small problem, the app worked seamlessly and news stories were interesting and caught your attention.

    The news is standard and the app would be great if not for the absurd way ads are handled. Mobile adds should not have full page apps popping up with full audio on. They should manage to push in ads in the header and footer or even between 2 news items. Video ads should be on mute by default when they start. Ideally they should never autostart. We are teying to conserve our data when we want to read a newspaper article. Please fix modify the way you handle ads.. Other than that the app is really good with good balanced content but the intrusive ads are a nuisance.
