Bad reporting

Your reporting on the Covid relief bill, which is anything but that was so one sided!😡
Why did u not talk about how it going to bail out California and other states that have not managed their budgets like Arkansas has. Nor did u talk about the billions that’s being sent over seas or used for abortions. “We the people” are not being told the truth buy u the news media. Y’all ran Trump into the ground and treated him awful. Why will u not tell the truth? why are covering up for politicians that are stealing from the American people? What happened to the reporters who help keep the politicians accountable regardless of what party they represented?

Loud- cannot mute

This app, even when your phone is silenced, will not mute. It plays advertisements very loudly automatically when literally every sound on your phone is turned off. This renders the app useless because: cannot use in a room with people (business meeting), cannot use in bed at night (wakes up the roommate), cannot use in class, etc.

I have ceased using this app for this reason. I literally have no other app that overrides my silenced phone.

Dear developer: play your advertisement. You need the funds, I get it. But put the ad on auto mute, or at least make it such that if your phone is silenced the ad is silenced.
