What's New in Version 2.8
• Added Closed Captioning support for some videos

• Bug fixes
Ok content; app is crap.
Sometimes the app goes unresponsive. Others, I have to click 'more articles' four to six times for it to load only a single article. Sometimes loading more articles only loads multiple duplicates of exporting articles.
Crashes when you click 'other' in settings.
In the middle of every article there is some sort of weird out of place description. For instance, one article has 'CBS' at the top of every fourth paragraph. Another just randomly says '19 photos' and another says 'play video politics.' They seem to be meta tag descriptions, but in these articles there are no photos or videos.
Now some articles are rendering with text so big it goes off the screen. Rebooting etc doesn't work. Lowering my rating to the lowest possible.
I have been using this app for a while and i find it very useful for reading accurate articles about the right information that I need to know daily! The problem is, is that the videos are like they don't even exist! When I click on a video, the page just goes blank and I just have to NOT watch the video! Please fix the videos and then I'll be happier than I was when I got the app!
Video is broken
If you just want to read article this is a good app. However with the latest update the broke the video capability. You can watch one video with no problem, but then at the end of the video the screen goes black and the application is completely locked up unless you uninstall and reinstall the app or turn off your phone and then restart it.
CBS come on don't you test your applications? This is an a obvious bug that happens all the time.
