I want to subscribe. But your subscription rates are too high. Provide lower/ cheaper subscription rates without bundle/combo package. Many would avail cheaper, mobile-only subscription. Low-price high-volume pricing model. I am ready to pay whatever profit you get per user by displaying ads in mobile app. I can pay around 200 to 400 for annual subscription with minimal ads too.

I am using free version of Hindu. So obviously it is fair that I will get ads. I agreed. But when I am reading a particular page, for example if I read second paragraph , then it spring into first or third paragraph when those ads are changing. Which annoying while reading. Also the side-swipe option to jump from one article to another one, is too sensitive and it goes to another article accidentally even a small transverse movement , while scrolling. Please rectify it.

Please incorporate notification settings by type of news. Its very useful for someone who is only interested in receiving notifications of only limited type of articles and not the whole lot of those. Just like I would like to receive notification only for editorials/columns and opinion but I can't configure to receive only these type of articles. It's a very rudimentary feature for a news app in my opinion.
