Crashes too often to be useful. Radio stations were easier to find on previous version.

Hardly Any New News VERY LITTLE NEW CONTENT from one day to the next. Seems like most attention is given to promoting political opinions rather than balanced reporting of news. Resources should be spent on gathering news and reporting it rarher than placing interpretations on events.

Has page loading issues Frequently in this version of the app, the content fails to load. The only fix is to back out of the story & then select it again. Has anyone else had any dramas?

Great app to read and hear news and radio on demand The only issue is that often it doesn't open and I need to first remove it from list of active apps before opening again.
