I have been using this app for around 4-5 years without a problem, but now, after the last update the (view more) tab no longer works, it's there but don't work, also when trying to read an article it jumps up and down you can't keep your eyes on it, the text is much larger and can't zoom in to make it smaller, the whole thing just really frustrating, I gave it a one star because you have to so you can leave a review

App was decent long ago, but with sharing problems. Now the app reloads itself constantly. You'll be in the middle of reading an article, perhaps you've looked away for a minute or two, only to have the app "automatically" redirect you back to the main feed. After which you are forced to go hunting for your article again if you want to finish it. Why do they put these kinds of irritating "features" into an app? To artificially raise numbers? Tempted to delete the app again. Perhaps I will.

App was great for a while, now it takes forever to load. If it does load, the stories are there but the pics aren't. Also constant duplicate stories, some that stay on the board for weeks. Not sure what has happened over the past few months but this app is going in the wrong direction. I am editing the review to add that while reading a story the words will just disappear after a few seconds of reading. The page refreshes but the words don't come back. Nothing has changed since the first review
