    Constantly crashes, very laggy when not frozen/crashing. Did they even test this before releasing?

    This is a nice looking and very readable app. There are a couple of problems that make it a 2 star. First , it won't load on to my Kindle Fire, at least not easily . Second , it crashes every time I use it on my Samsung Galaxy tab 4 that I bought , in part , because it wasn't available for the Kindle Fire. Foolish me.

    Can't read more than five articles without lockup. Bummer

    Since update, freezes up when reading articles. Not worth the new look if you can't get through an article without killing app several times.
