    Never loads all the articles only the last five hours or so then skips to articles from yesterday. Very annoying to have half a days news not showing up.

    App wouldn't stay open, they told me what to do and it's sorted now. Good job.

    Simply doesn't work after this update. Great app if it stayed open for more than 2 seconds

    It's quite good, better than most, sometimes I'm alerted on headline news and sometimes, even days, im not informed, but overall I'm pleased with this app.
