I love this app, it's my go to when I want to see the weather report or to find info on a news story or just to see what's happening in the world. It can be added to Roku as well as phones. It offers local news clips as well as nationally and then has entertainment, politics, editors choice, and more categories to scroll thru each story has a headline & is in video form which you can either watch or skip & I love being able to see different news stories on the same thing from more than 1 source

I love the app but it has a dark side. It is a data hoarder. I have it installed on my Nvidia Shield as my primary news source since I don't have cable. Recently just this year seems every 3 to 4 weeks I get a notification that my storage space is critically low & when I look into it, Haystack is up to a whopping 6.09 GB. And it's all in the data. The cache is only 38.32mb. Clearing the data brings it to 20.48kb I DO NOT like/ save videos so why is this happening NOW to a long time user???

Hi, Could you uninstall and install the latest version of the app from the App Store. This should help.

News variety is great. What is completely unacceptable is that it automatically plays a video, with very loud sound, every time you open the app. (And YES, I turned off the "Auto-play videos on start" option in settings. It STILL automatically plays the "My Headlines" videos with audio.)
