    This app would be good if it actually worked. Constantly crashes on articles, it's not my phone as I have a galaxy s5.

    Very slow on Android. Freezes often. A pity because their news is reasonably good ( as far as Western propaganda goes.)

    No update has managed to solve this. Get some new devs onto it.
