Glitchy. News is great, but multiple uninstalls. Great blend of news articles that are not from only one source, but the app is very slow and glitchy. I uninstall about once a month because it gets so frustrating to use. Right now it is showing up empty of all articles. Additionally, my local news app does a better job working when WiFi or wireless signal is weaker. I really feel like I haven't found another comparable news app that lets me get away from the poor technical design.
Updating my review to reflect my new device. I still enjoy the articles very much and the crashes and commenting seems to be working normally. My issue now is that each time I open an article it requests to know which application i want to open it with. Obviously I want this app to open it as that is where I am opening it from.
Network and offline reading issues Even on 3g network ..u articles get loaded slow ... Offline reading is another big time lie uR telling uR users ...
Crashing constantly! Had this app for over a year like many others and LOVED it, more recently (after last update) it has become unusable. Stories were taking forever to load, and now I can't open any story. What is going on???
Same tired old stories What's up? The stories posted are either very old or are seldom refreshed. Is everyone on vacation? For example, their report on the Holmes verdict was far from breaking. Some stories are around for what feels like months. Also, there are way too many distorted or misleading headlines. Seems like they are trolling for clicks.
Used to be better I'm not sure I'll keep this app much longer. The sections suddenly only contain 3 to 5 articles; many of the articles do not load within a reasonable time frame (some never load). I used to like this app but it seems to have too many obstacles at this point. Hopefully it will change.
