■ The POLITICO app will dynamically deliver additional News, Blogs, or other feeds in the future, without requiring an app update. Make sure you have the notifications switch turned on in your Settings app for POLITICO, in order to be notified when new changes occur.
■ POLITICO’s articles, videos and photos update several times every day. The app will automatically check for changes several times every hour and intelligently download only those changes that are different from the last downloaded content.
■ All downloaded article content is intelligently cached for offline reading when a network is not convenient. You can use the “AUTO UPDATE” flags in the Sections menu to control what and how much content we automatically download.

What's New in Version 4.0.10
• Fixed the issue where the content feed was not updating on start or refresh
• Fixed the issue where notifications opened to a blank screen
News app. Doesn't refresh the news.
Drag down to refresh? Doesn't work. You have to double-click the Home button, swipe up on the app and completely kill/restart it for it to refresh the news. Refreshing content on a news app is a pretty fundamental feature, and this one failed.
Good content, when it works
Every two or three days the app actually works. The rest of the time it just displays a message "Loading" or "Updating". They said they fixed this with their last update. It's worked once since.
Nice App, Great for Quick Fix of Politics
Easy way to periodically check in on the Roller Derby that is DC politics. Not having the refresh issues others are reporting. Was running it today on home network and Sprint LTE and content rolling in regularly and without delay. And Politico is content-rich at a time when many of us are (perhaps excessively) refreshing our news feeds to watch the latest episode of The Madness of King Donald.
