    Decent app, but I wish it could be read more like a newspaper. I read books like they are printed all the time. Why not a paper?

    I wanted to do research away from a pc and there is no search feature which is a big dissapointment that greatly limits the usefulness for me.

    I contacted the Star about the search function and they said to log in to their website via my browser. Defeats the usefulness having an app. I'll save the space in my phone and uninstall.

    Videos start automatically instead of going to start page as before. If I want a video I'll ask for a video. Not good.

    This new version does not send out breaking news updates. I am a subscriber to the VC Star and still nothing.
