Decent News App but needs Home button

Overall a fairly decent news app focusing on Ireland news, and easy to navigate between categories including weather forecasts.
However it needs a Home button at the top of the App. The reason being is that you can advance to the top 5 news stories at the end of each news article, but you can only get back to the home page by flipping back through each news article you’ve read.
A bit of a rookie error really for the app developers.

One small problem...

I like the new look of the app and it’s easy to navigate however I was disappointed that the update didn’t fix a problem I’ve been having for quite a while now. If I click into an image, I can’t go back to the story but instead have to close down and reopen the app. So many of the images are worth a closer look but it is quite tiresome to have to continually shut down and reopen.
I’m using the most up to date version of iOS.

Great source of news ... but

can you please make the blue underline text links work similar to the adverts or main story link. When scrolling down a story I inadvertently hit on the link while attempting to drag the rest of the story up and I’m segued to a different view. This behaviour is different to the link to advertisements and selecting stories from the main screen.
