I used this as it doesn't use a lot of memory space... I think, I'm not very techy. But it freezes & crashes a lot. If you read a news piece then go back to comment or whatever then the page has refreshed and the thing you read or looked has gone. Its just boring tbh. No other apps I use do this. Using the full version had similar issues with vids not playing, or playing & not stopping even after the app was closed, data was turned off. Tedious, I had to shut the phone down to get it to quit.

It crashes sometimes, the screen goes flickering white and black, it's kinda scary. Also, I miss the non-lite feature of saving my feed scroll position, I wonder if it takes much more space to add that feature, but anyway that's not a big deal. On the other hand, I find the "home" button on top of the screen to be somehow annoying, it often makes me lose my feed position by accidentally pressing it. Maybe make it smaller. It's not that bad after all, but it could be better.

I think the lite version is very good. But there is still some area that need to be fix. First, when i push the menu button on the top left corner, the menu show up kinda slow, laggy. Then the second one is, when i scroll down someone's tweet quite long, then i push and see the tweet, but after push the back button, the position is back to the first tweet. I hope u can fix this. If the problem fix, it will be awesome.
