    Never trust this site. All they want to do is straddle the fence to gain more traffic. I used to use them but they have become CNN. Too afraid to be an actual fact checker. No credibility left anymore.

    I love this app. However, I just loaded it on a high resolution display Nexus 5 and the text size is verrrry small. I wish the developer would provide a Text size option to increase the text size for high resolution displays. It's hard to read now with these old eyes.
