The app shuts off the music I'm listening to automatically if I scroll over a video.

GriffinDog

So for a while the problem with the video and my music that I described below went away, and I thought the app was fixed so I started using I regularly again. But the problem is back. Grrrr. Will again find another replacement if this is not corrected.

-------
With the latest update, it's too difficult to see stories and to know what section you're in. The worst part is the videos that start playing automatically. I listen to music while reading the news and the auto video shuts my music off. Very annoying!!! This used to be my go to news app, will be searching for a replacement.

Latest update invasive with ads.

Drweniki

The current incarnation has invasive video ads mid article that auto play with the sound ON! The sound doesn’t turn off even when you click on the mute link or if the sound link is already muted. The videos play even if you have auto play toggled off in the settings. So you are forced to watch the whole video, with the sound on, even if you are only reading the article. So everyone around you, in the library, in the coffee shop, in bed still asleep next to you early in morning are all disturbed by the sound of these annoying ads.

Very impressed with the ease of finding news resources. Categories allow me to focus on topics that interest me in the order of interest and skip irrelevant topics.
Concise news at ones's fingertips---up to the minute news. I also like the feature that tells me when I last viewed news topic so I don't waste time re-reading. Photos are Sharp, even beautiful!
Great Ap
