I have chosen this to be my main source of the news.
Cannot activate push notifications
Push notifications still can't be activated: clicking 'Disabled' does nothing to enable the alerts. This is poor quality assurance from whoever is signing off on this app.
News is good, app is subpar
64-but support but still no 6 and 6 plus... Seriously?!?
This app is seriously slipping behind other flagship news apps
