    Fine to use except for the You Tube link which appears on some pages almost filling the article

    The YouTube links that obscure some pages are really degrading the apps usefulness. Can you give us the option to hide the links?

    You tube link is OK on some pages but then takes up entire page on another section. Please put it right as you end up losing out on some updates. Otherwise, magazine and features are excellent.
