What's New in Version 4.3.0
Too buggy and the annoying ad almost gave me a seizure
App crashes or just doesn't work too often. Today it has some sort of ad designed to look like a media player that flashes so intensely I had to shut the app down. Thought I was going to have a seizure. Not only that, but their real news stories constantly direct you to links that are bogus news or ads. Not much point in a news app that gives you more crap than news. Unfortunately they all seem to be the same.
Works but has issues
Links not updated often. Can get more up to date news by turning on TV. Expect some links to not respond. Don't click on video unless you're just dying to see it. You'll first have to endure a 30 sec ad with all controls disabled and no way to stop or skip it. Annoying banner ad at bottom will lock phone up with no way out. Do not try this app.
Could be way better
I HATE the flashing ads at the bottom, annoying and make me want to delete the app. Also, I really think there could be more stories on the home screen. I like the layout and 2 line story teasers.
