Works well, needs "Mark as Read" Love this app! The ads are not too intrusive and the stories preload making things super fast. You can set the update speed and many other settings. I wish I could mark as read though. The only way to mark as read is to open a story and sit there for a length of time. The best would be a swipe right to mark as read and make disappear in the unread only view. That would make it like Google now which would be awesome! No mark as read but an unread only view seems odd so one less star until that is fixed.
Needs a little more work The update and cleanup are good and I liked the layout and display, but I had two issues that caused me to uninstall it. My first was the text repeating in the summary and in the articles. It would repeat at least twice in the summary and 2-3 times in the article. My second issue was hyphenation and spacing; with two words put together without spacing or one word broken by a space.
Changing for the worse Stop with the Huff-Po style ignorance. Drudge used to be a revered serious news source. No mention of Cruz, putting a picture of Rubio looking like he's 3 ft tall, among other stupid lame stream antics it's looking like glib joke of a news source now.
Will Not Pay!!! The people who made this app think users are stupid (pop ups asking me me to buy subscription). All the article can be found online somewhere else, but try to sell you these articles after allowing you free access for a few days. I am not buying this s***! People know that this app is NOT free!
Wastes time This thing, even after the new update, often puts the wrong pictures and headlines together sometimes comically so I find myself heading to the website anyway. And what's with the update time settings? Sometimes drudge is updated minute to minute, the app should be as precise as well fix those things, ill probably keep using it. It's ok tho in a pinch.
Ads are a shame Ive been using this App ad free for more than a year now. I accidentaly updated the App and now get giant ads that greet me each time I start the app, and ads in between articles headlines as im scrolling. The article headlines have smaller text than before and are spaced further apart. Im very upset with the new changes. I love having access to the articles, but with this flood of annoyances I find myself avoiding the bother of using the app. :(
