Good start-update to 5 stars They fixed the scrolling problem. Now it's pretty much perfect. Thanks! // Everything is pretty good here, except that the scroll for next article feature should be horizontal, not vertical. You barely get to the bottom of the text before it launches you to the next article. It's very frustrating. Fix that and five stars.
A few annoyances Scrolling is broken in article view (but weirdly works normally on the home page screen). When I swipe it only goes down a few lines at a time no matter how fast I swipe. Also, I'd like to have the navigation between articles be a side swipe and not a scroll down. Side swipe is the standard for UI - I haven't seen scroll down to change pages in any other app (because it's not a good thing). Otherwise a good app and I use it daily.
Streaming stops I was so excited to hear I could stream MPRNews with this app! Sadly, regardless of whether I'm streaming using my data service (full bars) or wireless, the streaming cuts out after 5 minutes or so. Every time, no exceptions. I use this app primarily to listen on my bus commute, so it's quite frustrating. I may as well delete it.
Needs work Application needs direct links to browser based articles and/or comment ability. The way the ads pop up after scrolling is very annoying. I would like to see a way to turn off ads if you are a contributing member. I also don't like the way it jumps back to the top of the news last when you back out of an article, it should stay where it was when you clicked on an article.
I am only disliking it now I love this app! But it is continually exiting on its own. I don't know what's going on and it's making me upset. If this changes then I will change my review of this app.
Great features, some bugs Lots of awesome features, but: weather doesn't load and app occasionally closes for no apparent reason. Also, audio stream pauses when I take a picture, which is really weird.
• Weather forecast made more accessible from the home screen
• Added some tension between stories so you don't accidentally advance to the next story
• Added auto-refresh so your stories are always up to date
• Added fallback alarm clock alert when connectivity is lost
• Added Push Notifications option to the Settings screen
