I have been using this app for a few years and once considered it the best news app available. I would spend about 15 minutes a day browsing through the news stories. The app added an extremely annoying behavior about 6 months ago. After about 10 minutes scrolling through the headlines the screen refreshes for no apparent reason and you are placed at the beginning of the story list. To get back where you were you need to scroll past all the ads you've already seen.

The content and news alerts are great, but if you only have the free version, you quickly find out that many of the news alert notifications you receive are for articles that are only available for paying subscribers. Very annoying. I wish there was an option that would only send me alerts for articles I have access to. Also, every time you open the app, you're greeted with an ad for their subscription service, which isn't cheap. Ultimately, I've decided to delete the app for these reasons.

Used to be a great news app, updates however have ruined that for newer Android phones. I'm on Android 8 and I deal with constant freezes. Until the last few updates, I never had this problem before. I will see if the next update fixes the freeze issue. If not, I will be uninstalling the app and will not recommend this app to anyone I know.
