Excellent app! I downloaded this when the pandemic started so I could keep up on statistics, local news, school information, and the governor's briefings. 6 months later I am still using this app for the same reasons. It also gives the option to turn on notifications for related articles.

What's new

If you’re holding your device in landscape when entering an article screen, the video will no longer automatically jump into full-screen mode. If you’re holding your phone or tablet in portrait orientation when you’re on an article, then you can still quickly launch video full-screen mode by rotating it to landscape. We also fixed some minor bugs.
