What's New in Version 3.4.1
- Fixed crash for some users on iOS6.
The app works well and delivers what you would expect, my only problem is the first few sections are almost always identical. 'Top Stories', 'Just In', and 'Most Popular', tend to be fairly similar in terms of the listed stories. Out of those three the most popular section has the most, albeit slight, variation.
I would recommend this for your primary news app.
Best new app around. I like the different sections and the news being up to date. My go-to news.
Don't count on this app!
If you you want to keep up to date with occurring events you may as well look out of the window and look for yourself .
