    Love how easy to pick up and read these articles. Short sweet and perfect for when I ride the bus!

    Is Newser assaulting users' privacy by taking unauthorized screenshots? There's a white flash every now and then. If they are, it is not written in the privacy provision.

    Content is great. Ads are intrusive and easily hit as previously mentioned. App force closes constantly when viewing comments on an article. Almost unusable now seeing as I can't do the one enjoyable thing this app offers. Watching all the libs argue with themselves in the comments.

    Sometimes there are periods that the app will launch but fail to load stories. It just says loading. Restarting the phone or app is futile. I have to uninstall and reinstall the app to make it work. It also just shuts down on its own randomly

    Well done.

    I had to lower my rating for this app after seeing how many of mine and others comments have been removed. You can't have an intelligent conversation with other parties when the original comment has been flagged by a single person that disagrees with your point of view. Mods need to look before deleting to see if the comment is offensive or simply a different view of the article.

    While I did think this was a decent news app, they will remove your comments on news stories for no clear reason. You try to be a part of the conversation and you get selectively cut out. If you like speaking your mind on news topics then this is not the right place to go
