Mostly nice, but one persistent annoyance

The app looks nice, and the content is excellent. However, reading long articles is challenging, because the app won’t remember where I am if I don’t finish reading an article in one sitting. It’s like reading the paper magazine, but with someone who closes the magazine and takes out your bookmark every time you put the issue down. Why can’t the app just resume in the state that it was in before switching? (It does behave like this if the switch is brief, but will revert to the home page or a blank screen with longer breaks.)

It would be great to have an iPhone/iPad widget, showing the latest stories.

No Search Functionality?

Amazing stories it’s my go to news/editorial source but does the app really not have any search functionality??? Maybe I’m missing something but I couldn’t find it anywhere
