Awesome app and great interface

This app is great, sleek to use with an easy interface. I like how practical it is and how the information is to the point without annoying you with ads and shiny things lol!

The articles are purely factual and don’t push a political agenda or demean individuals which I like, but the interface can use some work as well as the editing on the articles and BNA daily
