Block function does not work. When you block someone, you still get notifications of their replies. What's the use in having a block function? This app sucks. When people reply, you can see it in your notifications but when you click on it, there's never anything there. Then the app shows that people haven't posted for weeks when they replied to uou a day ago. Tech support is useless. They say email them and they'll fix problems. You never hear from them. Deleting this app immediately

I am on several news platforms and have accounts with each one. I enjoy the "Opera Newsbreak" in particular because of the way the information is laid out. It's very convenient and I don't get lost where I am going with the article. I've also noticed and had a major problem with the articles themselves concerning the content. Some stories have no common sense applied to them and that's very frustrating as a reader that is critical of truth, context and content. Not with Opera Newsbreak!

Generally good, but suffers the same fate as most news aggregators - obtrusive ads. I don't mind watching ads, but don't take over my device to show me ads, and worse, don't play ads full volume when my phone is set to silent. One other baffling issue with the app is whenever I try to download articles, the app refuses saying 'no network found'. Last time I checked cell phone data constituted a valid network. I don't understand the requirement to only work on wifi. Baffling. Edit - Uninstalled
