Night mode needs work. The colour of the text changes but not that of hyperlinks which end up appearing royal blue on a black background which is very jarring to the eye. When switching to any other tab which is not Home on night mode doesn't work. Headline text appears black on a very dark background, absolutely unreadable and to top it the actual news snippet appears in white. 5 stars for the content.

The old app, despite its issues, was better. The new app, from a newspaper that claims to value morality and data privacy, won't allow access or sign-in if ad-blockers are used, even for premium subscribers. Additionally, tapping a notification often leads to the homepage, then the last read article, before finally showing the intended article—if it works at all. And they removed the notification history too. I provided this feedback during a voluntary survey call.

Update #2: Please provide multiple voice options or accents for audio narration of a news article. Updated review: Finally, the best app update arrived. Swiping horizontally almost resembles turning pages in the print edition. Good font, design, UX and native commenting platform (albeit the comments load very slowly). Supports dark mode. I have no complaints so far. This is a much polished update to the app. Kudos team!
