Ads are unbeatable intrusive.. Scroll is broken. Changing between portrait and landscape breaks sometimes. Images are badly cropped and low quality. Overall a terrible UI Launch screen appears even if the app has been reopened from running in the background.
The UX is bad. The advertisments are messing up the apps lifecycle with respect to switching between background and foreground. The design is dated and doesnt use material design.
App has excellent breakdown into different sections of the newspaper, which I find to be good. There are occasional full page ads, very especially on start-up, but they interfere little.
Although the articles are good, the app is difficult to use as it goes into landscape mode despite my phone's rotation being locked, and sometimes I cannot scroll so can only read first two paragraphs of an article. Shame, as the writing is better than rival apps.
A few months ago this was my go to app for news but now its nearly useless
This is a good app. People need to understand an app needs to be funded somehow - either a subscription, or advertising. The ads don't bother me, there's so much free content beyond.
