I have been reading daily star online using android app since the promotion of the app. But I have been facing serious problems in finding any news in the app for last couple of days. Each time I enter the app, it looks white/blank page. I treid in many ways to see the news in the app, but to no avail. As such, I have been downloading and uninstalling the app frequently and eventually I attemted through restarting my mobile phone. This time also, I couldn’t find out any solution to the problem.

1. Very bad UI. Always makes you feel like there is a lack of articles. 2. Very bad UX. If you press on "View More" there is often nothing _more_ to view. Just the same articles again. 3. You get to select you favorite topics, but the feature does not work. It shows you the same default topics, not your favorite ones. 4. Is nowhere near the excellent quality of its printed version. I'm criticising so that I can see it improve. I cannot compare this with other local nsppr apps cuz hvnt tried thm

This updated version is just making me disturbed. Even after strong internet connection it doesn’t working. It doesn’t exist the previously visited news to see. I'm unable to see all the categories and my favorite OP-ED column. I used to hear the news when i was busy. But in this updated version the speaker has gone away. Please fix it within short time otherwise it won't be worthy to me anymore.😔
