Issue with Weekly Quiz

Ever since this upgrade was launched, especially in iPhones, whenever the weekly quiz is opened, the app opens Safari and it simply stays there. We cannot go back to the app. When the back icon is clicked, the app simply cycles a couple of times and stays in the browser. I am not able to get back to the main app. The only remedy is to remove and reinstall the entire app. Please update the app.

Unhappy with the recent bugs.

Hi. Have been using this app for quite some time now and really liked the interface and its ease of use. #opinion I found the news to be unbiased and fair. However, recently have been facing some issues with the app. The app jus shuts down after 10 seconds of use. It’s been going on since two weeks now. Please help resolve the issue. Loved the app by the way but if this issue continues, will have to move on.
