What's New in Version 5.1.4
Breaking news needs to be redefined. Because apparently everything is breaking news. I'd like breaking news as only important, need to know news and not some random fact. Looks like a lot said but just that is the only issue. Everything else in the app is awesome!
Best News App
I've had the app for five years and I never had a problem. I just got an Apple Watch and it has the News app for it and it is equally as good. However, it would be nice if it had 3D Touch shortcuts.
Warning, DO NOT Download app
Ad videos play by themselves, even over news videos after putting up with ads. They even play by themselves after shutting down app and over other apps, games, etc. Only way to stop ad videos playing playing by themselves and over other apps is to DELETE this app. Had this app for years but lately this problem kept recurring so finally had to get rid of it.
