Decent app. Almost great. Reason for 4 instead of 5 stars: 1. Some notifications are dead links. They open the app but the article is not found. 2. Swiping through pictures is clunky. Sometimes the app will scroll up and down instead of moving to the next picture. It will also inadvertently click ads instead of going to the next picture. 3. Load time for articles is too long. Sometimes it's upwards of 10 seconds. 4. Clicking a notification results in the app opening with an article not found.

The reading experience leaves a bit to be desired. The worst is its progressive loading of content: it looks like an article just ends out of nowhere until you tap around in the blank space. Next is the frequent opening full webpages within the app instead of just the article content, but that has a tradeoff: won't use phone's dark mode, and I can't easily resize text, but the whole article loads, and I don't have to click around randomly without hitting an ad to get the next paragraph.
