Recent update is hard to use. I will be looking for a way to delete the update. The previous version was more user friendly. Thank you for your response and interest in my opinion. I am learning how to use the updated app. It doesn't always work well when trying to retrieve a story. I was very comfortable with the older version. Updated on 7/30/19.

I jave used this app for over 4/5 years. Thus is the 2nd change to the app. I do not like this update. Old one was easier to use. The ads look like a news story if you not careful you may end up clicking on one. Will be uninstalling. Sorry fox5. 😔
