Fixed - News tab not working on iPad Air2 since April

The hanging problem on iPad Air2 is solved! Just uninstall and then reinstall the app. Simples. Description of bug below:
Other tabs work fine but News tab hangs indefinitely. Have followed each update since April and none fix this.
No issues with my iPhone

Worse than b4

The new app is totally Micky mouse compared to the previous one. It's like it was designed by a 12 year-old for 12 year-olds. What I like about the previous version was the way you could scroll accross the different streams and get a total overview of the news in a matter of a minute or two.

Now its like trying to read the Beano, or the Dandy. It's all pictures !

That was a few yrs ago. Nov 2018 update ... I just applied it. Now whenever I go to open the app it keeps offering the update I already applied. Can't use it at all now.

Persistent Bugs

The app itself is quite good but it has some major bugs which persist even after several updates

Sound on videos played within the app will not play if your phone is on silent. I only found the workaround (switching off silent mode) after reading reviews here.

On iPhone X, when a video opens to full screen, it is impossible to close the video without force quitting the app
