The Daily Star is a great newspaper but this application has some issues. 1. It should have contain the feature of copy and share to dictionary option of the words. And should have give the user a choice to press and open the link with Chrome option, so that they could save the content for future. 2. The application itself is very slow. After-all it only load texts and small size of picture, why takes time and uses such great amount of data? **

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.😔

This newly UI is nothing but a garbage. When i start it by pressing the app, it loads like a tortoise speed as if i had not connected any network. However, the previous one was far better from this newly updated version.
