Google ads blocking text

I am a long time reader of the magazine and have been using the app regularly to get my dose of science. Since one of the latest updates and the introduction of google ads at the base of each page it has been difficult to read the end of an article. I understand the need to subsidise content by permitting advertising but I am tempted to go back to print just to avoid this.

Good app but 3 annoying things

The app is mostly good however it has a few major problems I am surprised went through QA. Could you please fix!!!
1. When you open the app back up it does not return you to what you were last reading meaning you need to navigate back to the issue you were reading which is time consuming and also difficult
2. When you click on a link in an article it should take you to the article in the app so you can read the full article. What actually happens is it opens an in-app browser which shows you the article unauthenticated so that you can’t read it!
3. Even with a subscription they have started to show ads. These often block the content.
