This is a widget, not a full app. It may look like it's not working. You need to add it to Notification Center. The app icon is the place where settings are adjusted. This should be more clear in the app description.

News cycles as it suggests in NotCenter. Should permit multiple line entry so the whole headline can be read on iPhone; must are truncated, sometimes to the point of not being able to figure out what they say.
