What's New in Version 3.1.1
Fixes several bugs, including Push Notifications not opening related stories, Tweets in stories failing to load, and a random crash on stories.
Captions on Photos
The app is working better as of late, however, when looking at photos the text explaining the photo disappears too quickly - I can't read it in time and have to tap photo to get text back up. It's very annoying. Why not have the text stay on the screen and only disappear when the reader taps the screen?
Please please bring back Weather!
App is good but why did you get rid of weather!
Another wasted effort. Crashes,freezes,worse than the Global App, and that is at the bottom of the technical cesspool . Too bad they do not let you give it minus five stars
