Better than a few months ago


This app was horrible before Christmas 2011 but it seems that someone listened to all the horrible reviews and fixed everything. Great app now that it is fixed.



Half the time it doesn't open to the correct story...when opening from a notification. Makes you wait on ads to open anything. Sometimes the story isn't on the app till hours after the notification. Could be great if they fixed it but as of right now it's so terrible I don't even bother trying to open it. Also why do they need my location when I'm reading a story?

Needs work


Often opens with incorrect story. Way, way , way too many ads both in a story and pop upd while trying to read a story or go through a slideshow. Main issue is all the alerts and rarely are they local and you don't know this until you open the alert and fund out it was several states away.
