Font problem solved

I highly wish to get Unicode. But if you have problem with Zawgyi font, you need to scroll down to the end. You will see “ website “ tab under “ Social “. If you tab that one, it can bring to VOA website within App. That is completely Unicode. You can also choose other languages. Enjoy 😃

Unicode ရချင်ပါတယ် သို့သော်သင် Zawgyi စာလုံးပြဿနာရှိပါကအဆုံးသို့ scroll လုပ်ရန်လိုအပ်သည်။ "Social" အောက်ရှိ "website" tab ကိုတွေ့လိမ့်မည်။ VOA ဝက်ဘ်ဆိုက်သို့သယ်ဆောင်နိုင်သည်။ ဒါကလုံးဝ Unicode ဖြစ်ပါတယ်။ သင်သည်အခြားဘာသာစကားများကိုလည်းရွေးချယ်နိုင်သည်။ joy ခံစားပါ

Cannot Read Burmese Font.

Opened the app right after getting it from Appstore, I found one big dissapointment at once. All texts including news titles, body, app menu etc., are written with Zawgyi which clearly has been declared as a non-unicode conforming font.

While Myanmar is trying so hard on Unicode Migration, it's such a shame to see a very big news organization ignores the statement that government has been urged - "Every media and news agency must use unicode since October 1, 2019."

With a device fully working with myanmar unicode font, how could we possibly use this app and read all the news and articles in it?
I hope developers fix this soon.
