Some areas need work

I’m not sure if this is an actual iOS app or if it may be a PWA, but the scroll on each news article is absolutely annoying. When I swipe to scroll, it scrolls the content of the single news item row instead of the list. Really need to fix this.

Needs some work

Good content. Audio won’t play in the background for me. It stops playing when my screen times out making it hard to listen while driving.
