Eats battery in background Keeps running in background and using more battery than any other app and I'm not even using the widget. Better get fixed soon or I'm uninstalling.

Problems galore .....I've edited this to warn others that this news site is full of anonymous trolls given free reign to insult, demean and libel normal users. It's gone beyond a joke, every topic contains 99% fake Twitter accounts and the accompanying abuse. Uninstalling until I hear distilled media plan on cleaning it up.

Great source, but major battery issue Probably my favourite general news app. But I had to delete it as I found out it used an insane amount of battery on my device. It was always at the top of the usage list. If this is solved in the near future then that'd be great, but for now, it's staying off my phone. Pity.

Can't do anything on this. Be quicker driving to the store. Keeps saying page error or page doesn't exist
