Can't scroll through stories without it wanting to turn the page real quick and making me lose my spot every single time I scroll!!! It never fails!!! Also I have to video controls so if I miss something in the video I have to rewatch the entire thing just to hear a couple of words

This UPDATED app sucks ! When you access the app, neither of the backup arrows work. The ONLY way to get out, or close the app, is to go back to "desktop" screen. If you're in another app, and a "news" item pops up on the app, it interrupts the app you're in and neither of the backup arrows work. You have to go back to "desktop" screen to close the app which ALSO closes the app you were in when you were interrupted, so you have to start ALL over again. Gigantic, aggravating, PAIN in the ....
