I would uninstall then reinstall to be updated with the news but for two days now nothing happened. Please help I like this app thanks


Not all the time but often the screen comes out blank or paper white whenever refresh was pressed. Best way is to just let it refresh automatically every morning. When screen becomes white, you're dead. Only way is to reinstall the app, but this sometimes doesn't work either, so 'hit & miss'. Being a Filipino-made app, I doubt if this will flaw will ever be attended to.

It Crashes

When I am opening this app lately it crashes when it downloads for latest news. This helps me a lot before to keep me up to date with the latest news.

When are you fixing this?!
