App needs major improvements

Please look at the New Zealand Herald App for some inspiration on how newspapers should be on apps.
The setting out of the menu on the bottom is annoying as when scrolling up, I accidentally hit the podcast then I can’t find the article I was reading - there is no option from this point to swipe from left to right to return to the article.
The spelling is poor with some articles
I pay for this subscription - digital and paper delivery - the digital version could be improved by miles.
Take a leaf out of NZ Herald app - the ease of transition between stories and top stories is by far superior to the Herald Sun app.
Also your FAQ states the wrong instructions for giving feedback using the menu (3 horizontal lines) I clicked on that and there was no ‘feedback’ option.
I’m sure you guys can do better than the state it is right now.

Dud App - Always Crashes

Regular bug issues with this app. Constantly freezes upon opening and requires complete iPhone restart to get it working again. This happens multiple times per week and I’m actually paying a subscription for this dud product. Have deleted the app and re-installed and still the same issue. Also happens on my wife’s phone and apparently reading these reviews appears to be a widespread issue with no resolution in sight. If I could cancel my subscription I would.

Some moderators need more open minded

It would be nice some of the moderators could see out side the box and other see although commenters opinions may differ with their views and beliefs it may have a point.........

instead of being so fast to hit the reject button when they don’t like what they are reading or the points made. As it sadly showing that they have closed themselves to their own views and beliefs and that is sad.

As some comment were being written a philosophical way or having quotes or information the user want to comparing information with other commenters and with other comparing the varying news sources that it describing the same situation in a lot different ways.

There’s no need for them to feel threaten peoples’s by opposing views
