I don't normally do this but each time I opt to then I do it for a good reason. I rated this app 1 * because they embed video tags on their web pages with auto-play attribute that doesn't allow the reader to successfully stop the video from playing, wasting mobile data in the process. This is very wicked. You are using JavaScript very wrongly. You should control the audio so that it can be stopped and please remove the auto-play attribute.

I'm new to this app, but with my experience so far... This app is simply the best news app i have ever downloaded. It is easy to navigate, they give legit news... Not others that give fake news, they give news in correct English, they don't consume much mb, they post news immediately as it's happening, all news are segmented according to their different categories. I love this app.

I think I made a very big mistake and wish I could undo what I just did. It's really been long the last time I updated this app. It was actually okey since then, only that I discovered that i could no longer open it's instagram link for viewing. I have finally decided to update it, and I now, the worst happened. I can no longer read properly like before. EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE BLANK. Why is this so? I am also seeing similar complains like mine. Please could you please respond to our complaints?
