I like the concept, but find the app hard to use. It is far too sensitive to touch. Everytime I'm reading an article & scrolling, I have to go very slowly, or it switches me to another page right or left. The ads also pop up far to frequently; I can't even get a couple of paragraphs read. 1/2/2022, Update: changed star rating from 3 to 1. I am uninstalling app. Easy too much of a hassle for my news.

Hello, Thank you for pointing out the sensitivity issue with article swiping. We recently issued an update to fix this problem. Please ensure that you've downloaded the latest version, and let us know if the problem continues.

I really like getting the meta info on the news, and it tends to focus on the major stories of the week rather than flooding you with a 24/7 news blast. My only quibble is a functional one- the articles only open in the app's built-in browser, which doesn't let you browse anywhere from the article you are looking at. It would be nice to have an option to open any news links in your phone's default browser. Otherwise, this is my favorite news app!

App presents good articles, but the ability to swipe left and right to view a different article makes it so you can't effectively scroll vertically. The side swiping is super sensitive. I try to scroll down to the next paragraph in the article and end up switching articles 3 times and loading several ads. It's made the app almost unusable.
