Is it good?

Zeno Media LLC has put efforts and engineered a sophisticated app. What makes it successful? It is very easy to use for such a solid news app with built-in features. Well, as a top-performing app with an overall rating of 4.56 I can only add what people who have tried it are saying.

It's a terrific idea that enables tech savvy young people like me to follow BBC Somali rather than do the old fashioned and outdated way. Waa app-ka kaliya oo iga maqnaa wuuna iga farxiyay. BBCda waa idaacada kaliya oo maanta la dhihi karo waa dhexdhexaad arimaha soomalida, waxaana ka shaqaeeya dad khirbad u leh wariyanimada. Runtii waxay ahayd BBCda mar hore inay samayso appkaan.
Masha Allaah waa ifarxad ina manta aan arko App ay ledahay BBCSomaali aad ayaan idinkugu mahd celinaya waan kufaraxsanahy waxaana rajaynaya in dad badan idunku diirsan doonan aniga aan kow ka ahy.mahdsanidin markale
