Update goes a long ways but little glitches remain

This app use to be unbearable when scrolling through the news. At the bottom of the feed it would load news and then jump randomly to a spot. I would have to scrolling up several pages to find where i left off. Not any more!

It still glitches a little when scrolling through but nothing like it use too. Glad they figured it out.

Helpful app

This app is easy to use and keeps me up-to-date in the latest happenings according to my preferences. There are lots of features, menus and sub-menus so it can get a bit confusing but with enough time and effort this app does its job.
