    Great app, one thing to look at is that videos don't play correctly

    I just love Converge. Altough, it has one annoying thing : When i scroll down while reading an article, the title bar drops-down and it suddenly covers the article. I think that it's way too nig and it really chops my head ..

    Fantastically well designed app. Bit annoying since last update. When your reading an article and scroll back up the page a bit, the headline keeps dropping down and getting in the way.

    Update: Reduced from five star to one star. What's the point in a news app that doesn't connect 95% of the time? Your lucky to be able to load an article whatsoever. FIX IT! Good but doesn't always load the story, you have to go to the website. Also doesn't always load new articles.

    Text in articles becomes blur in seconds after loading. Please fix it.
