    It seems as though either the Californian isn't writing any news for a few days or there isn't anything to report about. The same articles pop-up that are two to three days old.

    We should be able to comment, like, and dislike stories. There are articles that are pure propaganda.

    I tried installing 3 times on my Samsung Note 8 tablet and on my Galaxy S4 phone. The display is totally unusable for news and weather.
