A little buggy!

On iPhone 7 and iPad 6th gen, I have observed a few bugs.
When clicking on "Headlines", the top bar which says Latest, Indian, Business, etc. fails to load the names correctly 4 out of 5 times.
And whenever it is not able to retrieve the proper names for the tags it labels almost all the tags as "Latest".
This problem has been there for almost a month now and hasn't been resolved even after multiple updates and reinstalled on both the devices mentioned above.

Good UI. Poor memory management

The UI is good for the Google News app. But the memory management is extremely poor. Say, I am using the app and reading an article and suddenly i receive a text and I click the notification to reply to the text. When I get back to the app, the app has to be refreshed and the article that I was reading gets lost. It is very frustrating as now I am unable to find the article. Please google male good use of the resources. Fix this immediately!

Awesome Design/ Improvements to be made

The UI is beautiful and scrolling is smooth.


>Add Option to switch off/on local headlines in the For You tab. Some users are not interested in politics and the headlines are always talking about it. It always covers the top news for briefing in the For You tab. It even takes up all the space in the widget and so my personalised news is never shown in the widget
