I give it 4 out of 5 stars. It's got a nice layout that's easy to navigate. One thing that is a plus if the ability to download and read the news offline which I find especially helpful as sometimes I am in areas that has a week internet connection so this is helpful as I can download and read the news when I am in these areas. Thank you to the developers... It's above average in performance and definitely worth downloading.

I like the content but the way it's layed out on the screen I find to be rather messy and confusing.A bit generic. It would be nice if you had a dark mode theme for people like me who feel eye strain. Also for some odd reason at random times the app won't let me close it. It's really strange actually but just now I had it happen again, kept clicking every which way and finally I got it after I backed space a dozen times or something. Overall it needs some tweeking and maybe I'll come back.

Thanks for the suggestion! We've been playing around with some different ideas such as Dark Mode. I'll let our Product Team know you'd like to see this.

I consider this app unusable until the following bugs/functionality are fixed: #1 biggest issue is that the customization options DON'T DO ANYTHING. Each article has a small "X" in the lower right corner. Clicking it presents the user with two options: 'Report' the article, or 'Not Interested' in the article. Clicking 'Not Interested' allows you to choose specifically what you're not interested in - the domain or the category. This is a FANTASTIC feature - or would be if it worked! After selecting the domain of a ridiculous clickbait site I won't name here, it said I'd see fewer articles like this. Incorrect - refreshing the page multiple times along with repeatedly saying "Not Interested In This Domain!" doesn't reduce the articles from them, let alone eliminate them. POOR FORM, OPERA. #2 I find the 'Switch to Reader Mode' prompt extremely irritating. I disabled reader mode. That means I DON'T WANT IT. Yet every article I click thereafter shows the switch prompt as it loads. Again, poor form, Opera.
