    Freezes on a story and can't be scrolled. Keeps crashing regularly. Can't share stories to Facebook, Twitter, etc.

    This app has very shady permissions like accessing your camera when you aren't around and others. As well as a huge battery and data drain. WORST APP EVER.

    It ran in the background and used over 3gb of data, had to uninstall it to make it stop. It used to crash all the time before this, the developers of the app are useless Morons.

    The android version of this app is just truly garbage, the iPhone version s**ts all over it. Tiny thumbnails in the photos section is a joke especially. I'll leave the content review for word of mouth...

    Caution do not install! This app used 812MB of my data in about 1 minute of usage. Thanks Newcastle Herald. Are you going to pay my excess data charges? Not to mention the repeated force closures. Uninstall. Never to use again. Very unhappy.
