Very bad, there's an add by Mozzart Sports Betting that has hijacked reading of articles, once you open an article to read, the add pop's up and covers the entire page hence you can't read anything and it doesn't have the option of closing it, you end up not reading anything you intended to hence closing the entire App

I raised my concern in April last year(2022) and you are responding to it now, over 1 year later!! I pay for subscription so as not to be seeing ad's on this app yet I still see them. I've just cancelled the subscription, but are still in force until later this year. Kindly check why ad's are still appearing when they should not.

We are sorry for this, but to continue work on this free app we need revenue from Ads. If you don't want to see the Ads you can purchase the Pro version. Thanks for your understanding!
