Needs a widget
Really great app. It just really needs a widget.
Works and looks great on my phone but the same can't be said for my tablet. Come on, let's have a decent tablet landscape implementation. Please.
It loads fast, even on my slow connection. Even the videos. Luv the visual and how it's easy to navigate.
I like the content. But chose the setting for news alerts notification... You get given editorial choice... Not alerts
It's very well designed with an excellent looking front end and thus far I've not come across any functionality issues.
The best $1.04usd @month that I have ever spent!! *Be sure to follow the editors on Twitter!
