This app was really good but suddenly it is not. Now there are "forced" notifications of news articles (which I could block) but this major new version of the app (unannounced) truncates articles at a particular number of lines so you can not read the whole article! The new version also starts playing audio by default which is really bad since often that is not appropriate. The developer feedback email address bounces and office 360 says it does not exist.

I was glad to find this app. It brought back memories of how I found VOA and others channe surfing on sw and mw. However, nostalgia won't make up for the lack of background playback! I can't put on some headphones, lock the screen and throw my phone into my pocket! I can't even navigate away from something I'm listening to browse other content! It seems this and some other functionality used to be in older versions. Please put them back! They are fundamental to a good media playback experience.

Very hard on the eyes. Low contrast text on the white background is really keeping me from gaining any desire to stay in the app when others are more comfortable to use.
