Where are the sub catogeries Still no improvement I see. Re-uninstall. Sub categories have now gone. Where's the section about skiing? Bring back the old app. Poor on many levels

Worst app ever I hate this app so much I wish it was a person and I could slash his face a broken bottle.

If no news is good news Then this app excels at delivering good news. Launching app forces download of new content that isn't displayed. All I get is the Independent header & white space. They should look at how Al Jazeera, Guardian, BBC, CBC, Bangkok Post, Huffington Post and other news apps are designed & built.

Notifications Love the paper but app uninstalled purely due to the maddening & constant notifications "new content available" & others.
