    Good overall, but often the whole article won't load. You can scroll down somewhat but unless there's an ad at the bottom of the page you often get stopped short. This has been a problem on and off (possibly related to different releases / updates?) for at least a year.

    Notification hell in this new version. Not every story is worthy of a push. Only way to shut it off is to block it in Android. The feedback in the app is broken too. Sadly this type of thing is why local papers are dying.

    Can't turn off notifications... Really annoying!

    The latest update for "bug fixes" caused bugs for me, for the first time. Tapping a notification no longer directs you to the story; it just opens the app. I'm not able to scroll down far enough to read the entire article, either.

    App kept pushing notifications all of a sudden and I couldn't find where to turn them off in settings!
