MTP About Meet The Press
If you are a fan of the show, this genuinely has everything you could want from an app. The interactive features, such as the Trivia Clips questions or the Twitter feed is a great addition to the app, and gives the user a real sense of interaction.
Ease of Use/Interface
Probably couldn’t be easier. The headings at the top of the screen allow you to scroll through the various options, then you can scroll down the video list. The transitions are smooth and access to the content is fast and straightforward.
Meet The News is a Sunday morning show, so the content isn’t updated all the time as a typical news app does. However, I noted that updates occur every couple of days or so and new video’s added. Therefore, while you are not perhaps going to be checking this on a daily basis, a couple of checks every week will keep you connected with the content of the show. The push notifications will let you know when new information is released, for example who is to appear on next Sunday’s show.
