    The text is unreadable in this app.
  • by Curt 4/23/2014
    Text is not formatted correctly: no word wrap and a tiny font. As a result, the app is almost useless.
  • by Alex 4/23/2014
    Font is very small but still hood information

    This app sucks. I'm not able to read the whole right side of any article. It cuts off 3 or 4 words each line.
  • by Dwane 4/21/2014
    This is way better than it was before
  • by Alexander 4/20/2014
    How do they keep making the same mistake and formatting the articles so that they are unreadable? Is the programmer in first or second grade?
  • by Brad 4/20/2014
    I can't read the articles. The words get cut off on the right. Word-wrap is not happening.
