It would be great if the news feed don’t reset and go to the top every time the phone screen turns off. I would scroll down the feed and then maybe need to tend to something and would shut my phone and then when I open the app again it’s gone back to the top and I have to scroll down and go through it again. It’s pretty annoying. Sometimes I wouldn’t even bother because it would take time to scroll back down.

Subscription not effective

Articles are easy to read on the app but some require a subscription. But even after subscribing, my subscription is not effective and I have haphazard access to the restricted articles. This is very annoying as I’ve already committed to a subscription. Please fix it.

Unable to read news articles

It’s very annoying when half of most of the news article are grayed off to prevent full reading just because we do not agree in paying the subscription. During this trying times, The Star Paper should be helping the community by providing complimentary news read. We are partly saving the green environment by not purchasing hard copy newspaper through reading online.
Please reconsider to waive the subscription fee until the economy revives and return to normal.
