No longer honors screen rotation lock Before the last update when I turned off screen rotation it would hold in the locked position. Note it doesn't which makes how I read in bed unusable please return this very basic feature.
New update is horrible The latest update freezes my S4 when it loads the new ad "feature". Pages don't load correctly probably due to the new ad platform. Have to force quit to see the articles. We know you need to make money but you'll lose it if you force garbage on us before we even start reading and then ruin the experience with the ads.
Ads I have always loved this app, but I find recently you can't really play videos. I start the video, it plays for less than a second and an ad start playing. When the ad ends, it dumps back to the original story without playing any of the video I wanted to watch. Awful new development.
CRASHES App crashes. Can't go through the news without it freezing up. FIX it. We have to put up with ADS. At least make a stable app! There are ALOT of alternative news apps. S5 kitkat 4.4.4
App now auto-rotates even when rotation is locked After the latest update, the app will automatically rotate, even overriding the rotation lock, making it very difficult to read when lying down. Also, the notifications no longer show a USA Today logo and instead show a grey square in the notification bar. Finally, the stories I save for offline reading are sometimes overwritten within less than a half hour with unsaved headlines, so if I want to save articles for a flight using WiFi, I have to wait until just before I board as to avoid losing them all.
Have to keep uninstalling since it keeps running into errors and shutting down....I've never been able to download articles for offline reading on my Samsung s4, only on my Kindle. ....my phone activates the download but I can't access it anywhere
