As a Russian, my opinion may be biased, but it is my opinion, regardless. This app gets a lot of hate for being a pure-Russian biased news station. I agree, that it can be a bit more understanding of Western perspective, but regardless of that, it is the perspective of Russia on the world. I have rarely seen a Western news agency write ANYTHING positive about Russian interests, and I rarely see RT do the same. In order to try and balance bias, I also listen to BBC and CNN to counter perspectives. Regardless, you will never see a news agency be centre opinionated. As for news, I really enjoy how Russia Today has very fast coverage on many events. I as well enjoy the set-up of the app, and that it does not eat up my computer's processing power.

Wikipedia this company, it's pure propaganda against the West, not once ever in it's history saying anything negative about glorious Putin. The app also crashed when I tried to initially open it.

Great app - tried most of features and everything seems to work well (so far). Big step up from iOS app - not sure why RT would not produce a better quality app for Apple devices.

good first version. I would work on Faster loading of layout+articles when launching the app(too slow right now). keep tweaking the layout.. you don't have to play by the Windows guidelines. Bit more effort! I would like to see Portrait mode as well as Push notifications added for breaking news Thanks!

I like the fact RT puts real news 'out there,' Doesn`t hide stuff , or as much as Main stream news . But my Norton AV picks up a 'Threat' - WS.Reputation.1 ( Google Analytics) . Nope , can`t have that , NO googled for me !

The "On Air" section is pretty nice especially because its free. But Please add a feature that lets us search videos. And if its possible please add a Larger archive of videos and news within their dedicated sections along with more sections too like a "Middle East" section or an "Africa" section. There are some performance issues too. Please fix that. thanks for making a good news app that keeps the media more balanced

Good app. You can watch live TV and primetime. Only downsides is that you can't search and find any RT videos like on the RT Google play app. On the play app, I could watch documentaries and tons of breaking the set episodes
