    Refreshes content so so so slowly, constantly crashes and often won't open at all requiring a reinstall to fix. The content is really enjoyable though... if you can actually get to read it.

    App always force closes and at the moment will not refresh the content at all, before and after updating. They badly need to moderate the comments better, often very abusive exchanges there and a lot of trolling. I did email them about it as well. The app is so buggy I'm starting to wonder is it causing my tablet&phone to lag. Both devices New.
