One suggestion

Great resource but I would like to make one suggestion: make the “save” feature available whenever you view an article. As it stands now if there is an article I’d like to save (after clicking on the link on the homepage for example) I have to go to search then News filter, type in the article name, then click on the article, and then the share icon in the top right hand corner is available to save to favorites. And if there’s a link in the article itself you have to repeat the whole process. It’s very time consuming so please change this feature. Thank you!

Breast cancer treatment disparities among white women vs women of color

As an elderly lay and white woman this was informative. As was also a caretaker of my adoptive grandson with autism severe IDD as well as seizure disorder for 25 years. He had some severe aggressive behaviors. I ignored my own medical needs. Had Medicaid and fairly recently got belated Medicare at age 72. I’m thankful. However I’m now being treated for breast cancer. East diagnosed in early September 2022, finally got lumpectomies in December then full mastectomies end of December. Am on two meds for HRpositive/ HR 2 negative. It’s extremely difficult to navigate who to call on the medical team. Leaving messages still doesn’t help. Amazing. I know the staff is busy. Treatments seem like I’m on a convayor ( spelling)belt . The waiting…while clock is ticking in the pay parking lot . Rooms are crowded still and worry about what disease I’m about to pick up. I’m no longer employable so it’s money to spend that I don’t have. These are my concerns as an elderly woman . Your informative research helps me realize I’m not alone.
Thank you for all you do.

Warning: Do not download - full of ads

Note: Hold-touch on this review to thumb up if you find it helpful. Otherwise, the app will not change.
(I will re-post this review with every update that doesn’t change the ads.)

I’ve been using this app likely longer than most of its active current developers. I used to recommend it to others in training. However, recently, the ads have become an insult and an attack on the users. Right now, if you click on a notification for an article, automatically an ad from industry will pop up, which cannot be closed and obstructs the entire article. And when you try to close it, the entire article closes. With the poor search function, you cannot even get search for the article to get back to it. this is not to mention, but other ads when you look at a drug are engineered to pop up exactly where you are about to press. For example, if you open the drug reference, they know you want to click on dosing, and they engineered enough seconds for the ad to pop up exactly when you are about to click on the link, so that you click on the ad automatically opening the ad. This is nothing but an attack on the user.

If it had a paid ad-free option, it would be worth it. But currently, with its current trajectory toward ads that are more intrusive than spam website, do not use it. You are better off going with a paid alternative.
