This app is great...in the Apple Store. The Android version is a mess. Won't update, won't even load - keeps asking me to subscribe (after I already did), doesn't show a login option. It really is a great app on my iPad, but it either needs fixed on Android or completely pulled. Disappointed because my kids all have Android phones and we have only one iPad so they won't use the app as often for current events as I would like them to if it's not easily accessible.

Will not open. Crashes immediately on launch. I'm really disappointed because my son loves keeping up with the news this way. He had the subscription at school and it was a great conversation starter, but now I cannot open the app at all on my phone which is a very new model, and on my older model which I let my son use, he can open the app but there's no way to scroll through the stories. You just get a static half of a page.

I didnt realize I had an active annual subscription. I wasn't sent a renewal notice and they refuse to provide a refund for this product I'm no longer using. So shady!
