This was my favorite news app for over a decade. It's where I went to get my my unbiased us news. As others have stated, the major overhaul to this app has been overwhelmingly terrible. Articles are more difficult to find, the app constantly crashes, and the design layout is terrible. I don't want to change news apps, but I will unless they get rid of this new overhaul and go back to the old design soon.
