Needs more user controls I would appreciate if SmartNews didn't direct you to pay walls, login walls, and dubious "news" sources such as breitbart. I'd like to be able to ban outlets that I don't regard as legitimate journalists.

Great app The smart view is awesome and frequently preferable to the real view. It'd be nice to have the option to view without pictures.
