New Update Scrolling
I dislike the newest update which stacks all the stories. This creates a frustrating scrolling experience as you inadvertently click and open a story while scrolling. At least add a scroll column or bar
New format not user friendly
The new format does not allow you to advance to the next story without first returning to the “main” screen, requires too much scrolling, and opens stories when you’re just trying to scroll (like if you tap just wrong you open a story instead of advancing the scroll...So. Frustrating.). Also, the left/right arrows at the bottom of every story don’t usually go left or right (back/forth?) - why are they even there? Maybe make them appear only if they lead somewhere.
Bottom line, I think the app’s previous format was WAY better and easier to navigate.
MPR Rocks! But this app is basic.
MPR you went backwards on this version. One feature change I like is the access to photos and graphs to enlarge and view them close up. The bad: I can longer save or bookmark a story, the settings don’t exist..takes you off app to read about MPR, can’t change the font size unless I change it for my whole phone, and the overall look of the main page is odd. Not sure why there is a slightly larger photo and then smaller font for the article title, this is not helpful.
I am looking forward to the next version.
