When I opened The Star app to read the news, why when I scrow the down the news items one by one, the images will vibrate. This is very irritating to the eyes. Using Samsung Phone. Is the app with a bug?

UI is a lot smoother now but they broke the deep linking feature that would open any article you clicked on in the app

News is mildly interesting... unusable without a subscription due to ads.
