Good but buggy

I like the app and I was using it daily. Unfortunately it has many bugs two of the ones that really annoys me are.

1- It will ballon in size last time It was at 7gb. I have to delete and reinstall the app to bring the size down.

2- the share sheet will vanish after a couple of seconds so if you try to edit the default before tweeting it will crash the share sheet before you finish.

This has been my favorite news app, but....

I open SmartNews first thing every morning and throughout the day to get news from sources I respect. I like the feature to choose tabs to customize. But all of a sudden there are advertisements scattered through the news stories. Most annoying. I would happily pay for a ad free version.

Excellent and Simple News App

My favorite news app that I check everyday for national, world, and local news. Love the "Smart" feature for reading news and the variety of news sources. Truly smart algorithm as well. Junk doesn't get by it
