    This app has been showing the wrong pictures with articles since its inception. Instead of fixing that, the developers just keep trying to add more "features" like inline ads. Now it seems they have broken the app's ability to return to the first tab after the app has been closed for some time. I do not want to scroll back through 10-15 tabs every morning to read new articles. Before they consider

    Was a good source for a tidbit of the news. A little light in content, but advertisements/offers are now being placed amongst the news stories. Going to delete and stay more with my local news.
