Never works like it should and gives notifications for articles that it can't find. Constantly asks for reviews and has annoying ads that move under your dinner as you are tapping on something. If you are just browsing for news, it works pretty well, but they need to jettison all this extra stuff that doesn't work, or actually fix it.
Slow, clunky interface makes the app frustrating to use. It loads slowly. It freezes every so often. It also chokes when loading ad content. When scrolling through an artical, the app lags a few seconds behind your finger. When you click on an article it doesn't open right away. The app just sits there, frozen. Update: since upgrading to a note 8, the app works slightly better. However, it still lags by 1/2 - 1 sec when scrolling, closing an ad or clicking a link - and you can see the phone struggle more in some instances. Where the note 5 would freeze, the note 8 seems to power through. Still, though, notification links don't take you to an actual artical 50% of the time...a frustrating feature. This remains the No. 1 worst app on my phone with 2 stars.
well it's not the content that I'm complaining about. I'm happy with my subscription and the journalism they do. it's the crappy interface they have. it freezes up far too often and articles often won't load for no reason. until the clean up the interface, I'm scoring them low
App hangs on my s7 edge. When it does work, the terrible layout and clunky interface doesn't help the already weak reporting. Got my subscription rate reduced to 25cents / week after calling to cancel. Still overpriced. Needs a complete revamp.
Ads block articles. No way to move or close the asinine ads placed over text. And it is so slow and klunky. Tap on an article, wait a while. Hit the back button, wait a while.
Downgrading rating again. Price changed without notice. App logged me out permanently until I signed up for the $7.99 version. Previous cost was $4.99. Disappointing app. Can no longer access articles with valid subscription. Forced to start new subscription twice in six months.
