    I used to love the Independent app. It now freezes/hangs on a story. Only way to get out of a story is by using the home button on my Samsung A7 2017. When you go back in to the app, the story is still there and frozen/stuck. It only corrects itself after prolonged inactivity (circa 15-20 mins) . Was a good app until Halloween. Too many ads was another problem in the past 6 months.

    Use to be good now some news items refuse to close, cannot return to main page and cannot select a new item or exit the app. Have to force close app to access other apps. Was good but not anymore

    This app make my phone very unstable. After uninstall it, it was better. (Samsung galaxy s5). Some lag when you scroll the page, not really fluid. However the design was good.
