I'm not sure if this is an Upday bug or a Samsung UI6 bug, but either way.....for the past few weeks, whenever I click on my notifications to read something, it clears ALL of my Upday notifications. This is driving me crazy & I'm legit going to have to find a different news app.

Changing again my review because unfortunately, you have put back in place an incredibly invasive system for video-dvertisements which pop up on the screen after some news and you cannot escape from them during a while. The buttom to skip them, deliverately appears after a while and even after skiping the video the screen remains, and you need to leave again, so it takes ages to come back to read other news. It is faster closing the app and starting from scratch. If it persists, I wull uninstall

Since Google won't let me write the title of news story in The Intercept, which is very relevant for an app, which publishes news but based on this story, the integrity & freedom of editors in Upday is questionable. To simply put, editors in Upday are instructed to downplay some news and to prioritize certain news related to a certain region.
