Redesign needs a redesign

I’ll echo what some other people have said about the redesign... it really reduced the information density and makes it hard to browse quickly and easily. I’ll leave it to UI theorists to delve into the why of it, but let’s just say they should have paid some folks to take a look at that, or at least offer some settings to rectify the issue.

App has always been a little barebones and feature-free, but this took most of the utility out of it for me. I don’t have time to scroll through full-page pictures of Trump when what I really want to do is read stories. Unsubscribed from the magazine and uninstalling the app.

Redesign just so-so

The home page redesign just doesn’t cut it for me. Too much white space and relatively big images which leads to a lot of scrolling to figure out the content. A more concise design and at a glance overview would have been better. To me there was nothing wrong with the old home page design.
I also would like a separate “dark mode on/off” setting within the app so that it is possible to set the mode independently of the general settings. I prefer to read black on white no matter what time of day but would like to keep the rest of my apps set to the general setting and not always switch back and forth.

Background Audio Stops

New update is ok...interface will take some getting used to. My frustration is that background audio is not working properly on my device post update. Audio plays for a minute or two then stops if the screen goes dark or if I switch apps. I like to listen in the car on short commutes...not working.
