I think it would surface valuable information if the app had a line of text that said last updated [updatetime]. Like The NY Times or WSJ. Whenever the app updates it would change the timestamp. It takes away the anxiety of, “Am I viewing the latest info?”
I thought I had looked and double-checked again to see if there was a timestamp on this screen:
Looks like this is already implemented…
So I’ll modify my suggestion to have the timestamp be in a more visible place. Both the NY Times and WSJ mobile apps place the timestamp at the top of the screen, centered, when you open them.
Oh sorry you specifically meant in the app. But each site will show you in the topic list, as well.
The last visit line is a nice touch. I also think the “last updated” line in the app could be more visible and therefore more helpful. But I am glad it is already displayed.
