I will probably delete this app it is awful and useless on Android operating systems. It takes 2 or 3 attempts to open the app successfully, articles only partially load with media missing it's utter garbage and leaves an incredibly negative experience for the user. Easily one of the worst news apps on the play store.

Half of the links don't do anything or don't do what they're suppose to do. For example, the menu icon link does nothing and the "Continue Reading" button/link simply takes me back to the top of the page and never links me to the rest of the article, read down to the "Continue Reading" button, click it, back at the top of the page, read the same thing again down to the button, click it, repeat.

I usually have to open, close, and open the app again for stories to load. Recently, it's stating that the app needs to be updated, but in the Android store, it states it's updated.
