The content is good, and I love the presentation, but the app itself is not very well made, and the UX (user experience) is frustrating. Pull-to-refresh doesn't work, at times the back button doesn't work, you can sign in but not sign up, and it's a whopping 27 megabytes in size despite having almost no graphical assets that I can see. Axios has great content, but they need better developers.

Great news source, not much bias, some articles are meant to alarm people, but they're few and far between. Advertising is sketchy. Too many ads for Google (propaganda ads against anti-trust laws), sometimes overboard with Amazon ads. But, most articles are good information. I like that you can see how long, and how many words are in each article. I like the "go deeper" option. Once in awhile, while slowly scrolling, the app hiccups you, to the ad at the end of a paragraph/article.

In spite of developer saying on Aug 24 that the notification now takes you directly to the article, tapping an alert in notifications never NEVER takes you to the corresponding article, not even close. You have to search all over the app, throughout several sections to find the article. How basic is this? Fire the tech team, get another. Frustrating. Can't use it.

Hi Michael — In the latest app update we've added a new tab specifically to house your notifications. This should also ensure that alerts direct you to the corresponding article. If you're still experiencing bugs with the app you can contact us at email@example.com, thanks for reading Axios!
