    I wish they'd fix the share to Facebook because it only saves to Facebook now which sucks for sharing!

    I prefer receiving the Freep digitally, but this app has a big flaw. It is constantly sending you new alerts. There is a setting in the app to disable certain types of news notifications, but it doesn't work. I shut them all off and I was still getting push notifications. Seriously frustrating.

    I want to get breaking news alerts, but I don't need notices for every article published (an exaggeration, but honestly this is what it feels like sometimes; I don't need three alerts in one day about Matt Stafford's finger - I don't even have the sports notification option turned on). Developers: can you try to limit the breaking news events, or provide an option to limit them to major news only? I want to stay informed and connected but there are just too many breaking news notifications.

    This is not free press it is owned by mass media and is extremely biased against Trump
