This app used to be good but it keeps getting worse all the time. Things like not being able to scroll if you touch the area of an ad are annoying, but now they have gone too far. It's fine that there are some articles for subscribers only... but when they send out a news alert, but you can't view it unless you subscribe, that is too much. Or they send out alerts on stories that were published hours ago. Etc. This app is no longer a useful source for news. Too bad they ruined it.

I thought the last update ruined the app, but I'm mistaken. Turns out another release came through and everything is fine as usual. App is working wonderful everything loads fast. All the articles are there... Absolutely nothing to complain about. Thanks freep! Keep up the good work!

The latest update released on March 2, 2022, Version 6.10, hangs on launch and eventually crashes. Behavior seen on multiple devices and with the same update for many of its companion apps for sister publications. So much for the subscription I had just purchased prior to this update... Even before this update, ads frequently hid or obscured content above, below or otherwise near the ads, necessitating creative scrolling in an attempt to reveal the content.
