Why do you require my photos/media/files? Absolutely no reason except fraud!

Now just generic BBC news titles About one third of articles don't download the article name, it just says BBC news and in the description the country of origin...

Summary unavailable This app has gone to crap. It used to be good. Now the headline usually only says summary not available. It also loves to post news stories several years old. I will be uninstalling soon.

"summary unavailable" 1/2 of the stories! The old issue was that it had tons of very old news, years old. NOW the issue is that about 1/2 of the stories say "Summary Unavailable" so you have absolutely no idea what the story is about! I have found myself using this app less and less and less..
