Good app with sneaky ads
The app itself is great, however while you are scrolling through stories an ad will automatically try to open itself up in safari, I close it before it has a chance to fully load but it is annoying and sneaky. And I'm not even near an advertisement while I'm scrolling so it's totally an in app problem that if its not fixed I'll delete it with no remorse.
When scrolling through stories the app constantly tries to open the Internet browser in order to load advertisements. This creates a horrible user experience that I would not recommend to anyone. It's one thing to exit out of a pop up ad but it's another thing to constantly have to switch between the Safari browser and the news app.
Not a good format to get the headlines
Who needs giant photos of stories? The layout doesn't allow you to scan the headlines. I have to scroll and scroll and scroll and scroll to see the headlines. And then it freezes up often. It would be great to see the major headlines on ONE page.
