Good news app, crappy ads ruin the experience. Terrible ads, good news.. As far as the news portion goes, it's pretty good for that with easy access and easy reading. However, the over-intrusive ads are a nightmare. Unskippable video ads before a news segment and (unforgivable..) unstoppable video ads after watching a video segment. The full screen interstitial ads that vary their close button, that's unforgivable as well. I wish I could root my phone to stop these intrusions.
I hate all the pop-up Ads. I hate all the pop-up Ads and I hate all the stupid Promoted Articles sections, especially in the centre of articles, please get rid of them. There's 327 1 star ratings, at least the majority think there's, something is obviously wrong with this app.
