Fixed by latest update

This app was so sluggish (30 sec from opening to being able to read a story) that I had demoted it from #2 (after my local news app) to #5 of my news apps. I was on the verge of deleting it this week but then I did the most recent update and it works great again. All the difference in the world.

Bring back the peacock!!

I use to love this app!! Now not so much..
Locks up, won't load news, can't watch videos, also when it doesn't crash and you actually click in article to read you actually have to click again then wait for that to load (sometimes it loads sometimes it doesn't) if I clicked on article obviously I want to read it. Don't ask me again, "click here to read article)!!!
Vey frustrating. Moved to the bottom of my news feed list. I only open it now to see if it's been fixed.


Night and day difference after last update. Main thread no longer locks up!
