Ads are in the wrong language (Chinese and Spanish in the Bay Area). Personalization is not that great, it still takes a lot of browsing to find the stories I care about. I also wish there were a wider selection of news sources. Update: Personalization got better, but the app (both on the phone and TV) became very slow. It often takes 30+ seconds for the next story to play. Also, the TV app now often freezes for a minute or two.

If only the app wouldn't be so buggy in Samsung split screen view (s10+), it would be perfect for those that like to have the news on in the background. In split screen view, the videos either don't play, turn black, or jump around. And if you get a video to work resizing or focusing off the window screws everything up again. As a standalone app, not too shabby. Unfortunately, that's not my use case.

Needlessly inefficient. Selection is pretty good, and I enjoy the ability to watch just the items I want. But I want to efficiently and permanently prune down lists of things to watch. If I watched an item on phone or tablet or roku, don't show that item on any device ever again. If I swipe away an item off a list, that means I don't want to watch it ever. But if I go to a different category, the swiped away item will be back. Even worse items from a couple days ago will often reappear.
