It would be very helpful if you could make the font size adjustable, the current size is too small for my eyes. Otherwise it's a good app, one of my go-to sources on current events in China. Thank you.

Big fan. High quality press. Just good humble opinion pieces that I find highly relatable as an expat in Shanghai that gives me an insight to modern life in China.

Great balanced news report about China. The world's second biggest economy that nobody really know about. A good read for those investing in China
