Toxic app

Regularly refuses to load first time, takes at least a minute to load content when it does start working then crashes and leaves your phone in limbo. Phone hangs even after app is force closed- something badly wrong here. Oh and the ads are nearly always full screen and impossible to minimise, what started off a good app had turned into a bloated mess

Freezes all the time

Great fan of the journalism. Shame don't get chance to read much of it!
Within attempt to read articles it freezers by 3rd or 4th on most occasions. Also loading takes long time. Please he this fixed. Can't be that difficult. There are many similar apps out there that work correctly

Intrusive ads

The app had seemingly improved somewhat but now the same annoying 'Away Holidays' ad pops up without any user interaction upon opening _every_ article and there is no way of closing the ad without going back to the main page. Don't know if this is a bug or a clumsy way of artificially increasing ad impressions. Please fix!
