Every video loads with an embedded ad first, wasting anything from 14-30 seconds of your life. You can't scroll away and read the article while the garbage is playing either as it auto pauses when you scroll offscreen. Do they need the ad revenue so badly? There are banners with ads all over your screen btw, so it's just pure greed. Probably necessary for the unnecessary anchors, throwing the story to field reporters, repeating the synopsis and playing an overly lenghty backstory.

Somehow I used nearly one gig of data in two days on this app. I don't watch videos because I don't want to watch a 15+ second ad for a ten second clip. Videos are set to not auto play and I just checked and they don't. But I'm guessing they are preloading so that defeats the purpose of it. I should be getting mostly text and static images. This app is using much more than my YouTube app.

App crashes and freezes a lot. Get way too many notifications, even after adjusting settings to only send breaking news alerts. Once you click on one of the notifications it will open the app to blank screen, hang there for a while, then crash. And the topics that are deemed "breaking news" in most cases aren't even news at all. UPDATE: Thanks for telling me to contact the app developer to give them feedback. This is an app review, and I'm giving feedback already, and the app sucks.
