Launch screen - dark mode

Edit: this has been fixed with the latest update. Thanks for implementing.

Biggest issue for me with this app is that the launch screen is blinding white, when the phone is set to dark mode. I wish this was fixed, because it’s jarring to use at night time when you tap on a notification and the app reloads.

Best News App Going

This has to be the best app going for local news and news in general. I’m not a paid writer for these people but have to say this App gives the latest updates to your phone with out holding back. Download it and get up to date coverage. Fantastic service and great news at the touch of a button, your a fool not to honestly.

App shuts my phone down when launched

I think this is a great app but every time I launch it on my phone it turns my phone off! It’s fine on my iPad so that is where it will get its most use.
