Worse than the website. No tabbed browsing. One at a time, then hit the back button. Then load the next story. **Even worse, auto starting videos with audio with no regard for where the person is or what else is going on on their device. Check phone for news update, better make sure you're somewhere where it's okay for audio to come screaming forth from your phone. And of course even if you're not in public somewhere, if you've got anything else going on the phone this will interrupt that too.

Original version worked great, but after latest update, when I attempt open and look at a story, all I get is a black screen saying "not connected to internet" when actually I am. Uninstalled it as in its present state it is unusable.

Buggy. App destabilized my tablet's UI when running. Content as advertised, but functionality seriously lacking. Uninstalled. Odd how WCIA's weather app works decently, but not this.
