    App does what it's intended to do... not too much on the toasts though... I'm getting at least 8 of them per headline.

    Please fix the notifications. I like them its only that I get 4 of the same notifications in a row.
  • by Vincent 10/21/2014
    I get like 20 notifications for one story. Please fix. It's annoying.

    I could deal with the small text if sentence weren't cut off

    The app is still good, but I'm getting six notifications for every breaking news alert. I'll add more stars when this is fixed.
