New App is Not a Great Experience

The new app has been very frustrating. It’s hard to hold in one hand and navigate with the left thumb because it doesn’t always respond as expected. It will swipe to a next article or do something that doesn’t feel like it matches the input. But beyond that, one of the most frustrating things is to get a new notification about a news story, follow to the app from the notification, only to arrive at a blank white screen with nothing but the back arrow navigation. I wait for something to load, and it doesn’t. I use the back button since it’s the only option, and the page is nothing more than a blank white page with a forward navigation button. I ultimately have to quit the app, relaunch it, and just try to find the article manually. Two thumbs down for the “improvements” of the new app. Using iOS iPhone X.


Navigation issues on iPad...

I tend to hold my iPad with my left hand in landscape mode and I don’t always want to scroll with my right hand in the middle of the display... most of the time I want to use my left thumb to scroll through an article that I’m reading. This is impossible with this new app. The navigation area of an article has such large left and right margins that it makes it impossible to navigate with my left thumb while holding my iPad... otherwise, I like the search and targeting News features. I find those very useful. If you could fix the navigation issue, I’d give more stars. I see where people have complained about ads... those are part of the experience in any free content... so they are to be expected. It would be nice to allow us to skip an Ad after so many seconds. Thanks for reading this review.
