A phone restart after moving the app may be required in some cases.

Crashes while typing a comment, then won't come back until killed in task manager and cache cleared.. This happens repeatedly.. Really destroys the experience. Also, when particularly hateful or vile offensive comments are posted there's no guarantee they'll be removed, the moderation of comments seems unduly lax.
Wont open after new update
Can you please explain how the location permission improves the display of animated GIFs?
Crashes my Sony phone since most recent update - will only load a black screen and eventually crashes phone altogether.
This app is using sometimes up to 30% of my battery while running in the background. Push notifications are off. Please sort it out so I don't need to uninstall.
Please can you add the following features: allow user to "save" news items to a "favourites" list. Allow user to "follow" items. Allow user to list their own comments. Please stop the app using so much battery and allow the app to be permanently stopped without automatically restarting.
