Stop auto refreshing. Do it like a normal app or a web page, user prompted. Secondly, make you feedback popup prompt the keyboard, we can't leave feedback because the keyboard doesn't auto popup, we can't copy and paste because the app refreshes when you get back in to leave feedback. You can see why this might get frustrating yeah?

I would like to be ale to quickly flick back directly to my contributions, and read replies. As reported recently, I am unable to read saved items. Thanks for your email suggesting various fixes, I have tried most of them including uninstall, reinstall countless times butl no fix yet. Content is wonderful, but modern grammar is irritating. "The person that..." gets me to screaming point.

My high-end tablet is slower with this new version of the app. Also in landscape mode the bottom menu strip takes up so much screen space all I can see are two headlines at a time. Two menu strips at the same time is a bit excessive. And I can't access my saved stories. The previous app version was so much better.
