    Gas all the right features but a few bugs. The updates settings keep reverting to no updates. Text on some stories is too small and runs off the screen.

    Cannot read articles on a Nokia Lumia (windows 7). Font size is ridiculously small and cannot zoom.

    Unbelievably biased stories. Fast and lose with the facts. Definitely have a slant. Read with caution. Get other sources before you trust anything on this site/app. Not news. Mostly propaganda.
