Fix this app, please.

Newsbar is great for what it is. However, it would be a much better program if I didn't have to play "babysitter" across multiple apple devices. I use iCloud for multiple cross-functional programs and Newsbar is the only program I have issues with. That is, if I view/read a Newsbar article on one device, then that action should be represented across all iCloud connected devices. Sometimes it works great while other times it does not. Please fix this. Thanks!

New problems

As someone else is complaining, I find myself rereading on different devices. I don’t recall that happening before.

More distressingly, I’m getting push notifications (but no actual news items) from NewsBar on my iPhone, claiming to be ads from local prostitutes.

The app is compromised

I have been using this app for some time now. Recently, my Notification Center is being bombarded with porn spam messages. I manually check all my feeds on a computer and they are clean. I have tried reaching out to the developer and no response; the developer is MIA. I’m going to park this app for an updated one. This review is intended to warn others that the app is outdated and may have been compromised.
