    Latest version is dreadfully slow to load. Launch app and old content is there. Doesn't seem to autorefresh upon launch. Refreshing content *always* causes a black screen and unresponsive app warning - this is on a modern phone. Serious threading/blocking issues.

    Soon painfully sloooooow & laggy since last update. Worked fine before & is there really a need for popular & editors choice? Latest news is fine. Hardly worth using now. Shame it used to be grand. Nexus 7.
