App is full of bugs - content is outstanding The articles are really really good, that's the reason all the subscribers are ready to pay so much. However, the App has too many bugs. The latest version is not able to load the articles, the home page simply keeps refreshing and reloading, and the only way to resolve is to reinstall the app. Please look into such issues and fix them too.

I absolutely love it..! Just few suggestions: When we read any article for the first time, the red bar below, increases. Once we read the whole article, the red bar shows full and is static. Now, if I try to read the article again, I never have an idea of how much of the article is still left. If possible, try to introduce a feature where the red bar shows full and static at the home page, but inside the article, it increases even if we have read it before. Also, introduce an inbuilt dictionary

So many bugs. Sometimes scrolling bugs out and keeps pushing you to the top of the screen. Sometimes it tries to load a story in webview and bugs out. Sometimes tapping a story simply crashes the all. Sometimes going back from a story crashes an app. Overall a horrible experience, and there isn't an available PWA either. Will have to resort the website.
