Massive battery drain when not in use. Anytime I'm done listening I close out the app and it just continues to suck battery down at a rate of 10% an hour. Uninstall the app battery works fine, use the app again battery disappears. This is when I am not using the app actively but used it earlier in the day. This is a major issue and needs to be fixed for this app to have any real usability. It's a shame because I really liked the "news in slow" app before they were combined to this.

It's good that news in a few languages (if you can understand them) are all included in the same app. Compared with news in slow french, there are no non-free contents included here. But there are less (free) contents included. Also, it doesn't allow selecting/copying text.

I did enjoy the app in general but there are 2 factors that forces me to give a low rating . 1) The slow speed cannot be changed which you can on many other apps. 2) There is no option to copy or paste words except the ones that the app itself has chosen to translate which makes it harder to comprehend the text.
