    New wise, they tend to get it before anyone else most of the time, but I cannot post comments because the app crashes everytime I try to login.

    Great app for viewing Verge articles. Runs really smooth and loads up quickly. One issue I've run into is that it kicks me out every time I try to log in, so I can't add comments.
