Not user friendly and very clunky

I like the idea of Headlines section, but my main reason for using app is being able to choose my Topics. But it is clunky and difficult to manage.
Easy to select Topics for my view, impossible to unselect or review chosen topics easily.
About to delete app and go back to browser. Such a waste of a good idea.

It’s a bit clickbait in titles

I don’t like how it’s a gossipy and clickbaity, I want the facts, not sensualise facts. The corona virus coverage in particular, rounding up numbers of those infected i.e almost 300 infections.. well it’s not 300 it’s 297, I want actual facts not rounding up. Yes it will quickly surpass 300 in fact it has now gone past 300 but not at the time of reporting! Also the coverage of Hamish Blake’s joke about pasta brands and making a article about it as if it’s actually serious news worth reporting. Also the clear constant racist attacks on Megan and Harry, It’s a shame cause this nonsense is why I’ll delete the app which otherwise is a good app.
Just realised Rupert Murdoch associated everything is explained, delete.

Right idea but doesn’t work properly

Great look to the app. Have problems in the “Just In” section, click on a story and it will not load, all I get is the spinning wheel of death. In the “My News” section, I need to pull down to refresh all the time for it to work properly. Have tried everything to make this app work but am over it. Back to the mobile browser version. Works better.
