This new update is not easy to navigate. Have to go through menu options to find section I want. Why can I not "star" favourites like in previous version. There are no easily accessible heading sections or tags. Have a look at irish times app, now that is easy to navigate.

Why the bloody hell do ap designers feel the need to completely change the design and functionality of how the ap works from time to time. Woke up this morning to browse the ap... And the layout is completely different. Pretty much cannot use the ap one handed anymore. Well done.

The new layout on the app is poor. Less easy to navigate. After 1 week of using the new layout I am going to cancel subscription. The old layout was easy to navigate
