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

GREAT site, poor app. The site is is one of the best science news sources on the web, but the app is poorly designed, the font sizes are huge, and the interface is suited purely for phones, not tablets.

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
