I like the design that fits to the modern UI. Doesn't take much time to load. All features are in one single app, fast and fluid. Waiting for another update. 😉

Live TV function doesn't work.

The Live TV is paused, and it won't get unstuck no matter what I do. Sometimes it works properly, but those times are few and far between. Also, there is no quick status on my lock screen. It was implied that there would be one in the settings for this app, but it doesn't happen. At least RFI works without issue.

Great source of French news

Finally, my two favorite news sources in one place: RFI and France 24. The app is well designed and works great. Video and audio streams work well. I was able to switch from English to French streams in preferences, using the settings charm. I would like to be able to leave it on in the background. I haven't found a setting for that. I'm not sure it's possible. I would also like to add certain features (emissions) to a favorites list, to make it easy to get back to them. Great app!

It's in English

If you want to hear the news in French, this is not the app for you. RFI has apps that allow live listening, this is not it

Great news app.

I use it mainly for streaming live news. I love their reporting. It's actual reporting of actual events, not pundits shouting or celebrity gossip for the braindead. The UI is nice, too.

It won't install on my Windows 10 laptop!

Not sure what the deal is, but the thing won't even install.
