Too many news hidden behind a paywall with the app, yet the same news opened with a web browser can be seen fully. Too many double 15 sec plus ads which appears randomly, and does nothing at all after (for example: unlocking a news paywall). The Star Malaysia also has a very bias reporting, misleading and sometimes deceptive usage of words, tags, and sudden narrative shifting, all to subconsciously alter your perception towards friend/foe propaganda.

The app was randomly popping up Lazada deals and it happens every 5 mins. Once I closed the lazada app, the Star app then refreshed automatically and brought me back to the top of the page. I had to scroll back to my previous read. Imagine this happening to you every 5 mins

This app is totally useless. I've been transferred to Lazada app every few seconds of scrolling and when I switch back to thestar app, I had to rescroll to where I was last seeing. Then the Lazada app will pop up again and I would have to go through the whole cycle. I am a monthly subsciber by the way. Please fix this.
