HOMESCREEN WIDGET???!!! Where is it? Perhaps the developers need to look at (say) The Guardian app or the BBC NEWS app... Both of THOSE are obviously aware that a scrollable WIDGET on the homescreen put the stories and headlines within easy reach of users... It's not enough just to be politically unbiased, people don't always have time to go to the app to check new stories when a few swipes across homescreens can show them recent headlines from several news sources in a matter of seconds... SCROLLABLE, CUSTOMISABLE WIDGET PLEASE!!

Constantly crashing Good articles, but unfortunately I can only read 2 or 3 before the app crashes. Samsung S4

Confused Outstanding newspaper but a pretty confused app. The biggest issue is that there is no way to customise the app or reorder news sections. Print news is a take it or leave it, one size fits all experience. Digital news readers do not have to be the same.
