Off the scale privacy issues New permissions excuse are rubbish. You don't need to know the name of the Wi-Fi I'm connected to for GIFs or videos and if you want to localise the news give us a drop down menu. One of the most invasive apps I've ever installed. Accesses your phone ID/number, your phone company ID, your SMS/MMS message settings, your WiFi configuration - and that's just some of the permissions.

.... Changes Why do you need my gps location ?? Uninstalled for that reason. Reply seen below .. Some of your users are outside ireland, and wish to keep up with news back home, local weather/news settings are fairly useless when overseas

"All the News, Nothing but the News" As I put it, which I believe is was once, a news ccommendate for a news network or a regular network news time slot.I'm going to enjoy and follow thru the app's set up. And most of all, I'm,"Freeky Geeky", put on "stand by" or a "fill'n," saying, 'So long to this 'cruel, cruel world."
