Please stop from forcing user to update. Every update has made the experience gone downhill. And now with the latest update you’re forcing user to “subscribe” while still injecting ads into your app. This is ridiculous. And by the way, the so called “Breaking News” alert is super annoying, it alerts news that’s not even breaking at all!
