User reviews of Phys.org Science News
(forgive the formatting... the bullet list just didn't happen) A good start, but some usability issues: * the app needs a category or other means to show new articles (for those who don't want to use the widget) * when going back from article view, the app needs to remember where the user was on the article list level; it starts at the top every time... a real pain when you're browsing a screen or two down * thumbnail pics in article list level would like nice, but are not essential

Poor For starters, the app doesn't get updates during the weekend which makes no sense. Not only that but I paid for this. Also I have several science apps that are free to download, but yet I find all the articles that are in the free apps on this paid app. So what's the benefits of this one when the free ones have the exact same articles oh and they update even during the weekend

This app use to be good but recently there has been a bunch of hippie anti oil and gas "science" on there. They need different editors that don't bash the energy industry

Font size With the extremely large font size it is mostly funny. Not usable atm.

Text is huge on note even at small setting. No pictures outside of articles.
