It's been months and several updates and I still can't save news articles. Ali I get after hitting the save button is that the article failed to save. I've had to email the article to myself in order to save it. Even after several updates, still unable to save news articles. Also, tried to get to the website u suggested, unable to even get to the website. It doesn't seem to exist. Feedback website still doesn't exist. Nice example of NOT reading the review.

I use this app every morning to get caught up on the news. I'm finally getting use to the new version, but I miss the old version, which I could watch gma much easier. The video news stories don't get updated on the weekend 😪 Also, please stop doing video news stories where it's all written caption and no one talking. I play the videos while I'm getting ready in the morning so I can listen to the news.

Aug 19 - Just downloaded/installed newest version. Installing was successful and the app does not crash as it did in previous versions (thanks guys). As for the adds in the videos it is no different than watching videos on my computer. I just turn off the sound and wait. May 3 - just uninstalled latest version - shuts down within 5 seconds of opening app. Not good, ABC News programmers :-(. Don't waste your time installing this app until it is fixed. Using Samsung S8 Android smartphone.
