Yet another tech product that fails at it's primary function. No ability to full screen a video. If you play a video, then turn off the screen, then turn it on, to say rewind a bit, the video stops and the play button no longer works, there is no refresh, so you have to close the app. No closed captions. What are you doing with your millions of dollars that you harvest from creators? Hosting some files?

I used to like the app, but a recent update has made it so links are automatically shortened. This cuts off sentences mid-word, sometimes multiple times per post. This is completely unacceptable, and needs to be fixed immediately. If the author wanted to make the link shorter, they would have written their post that way. EDIT The issue with the links has been resolved!

Clean and tidy. It needs a feature to make it easier to share comics and pictures when you're not wanting to send the whole link (press and hold to save doesn't seem to work) but otherwise it's a great app. Also, the people at Substack are making an effort to be a decent company that promotes freedom without allowing the rampant chaos of some services that get.... hectic. I get most of my news from here now. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
