Could use some work

I love the app, don’t get me wrong - always have something phenomenal as the notifications. I’m always checking it, truly amazing. The only issue I’m having with as a subscriber is checking my favorites. The app closes when I do so. If that was fixed it would definitely be a 4-5* in my eyes!

Need to to fix bug with favorited articles

Let me start by saying this is my favorite app. It’s the only news I care to read since it isn’t loaded with political garbage and propaganda. However, every time I go to favorited articles I cannot scroll through the list to see the more recent articles I’ve favorited. The app crashes EVERY single time without fail. Not sure if it’s a scheme to make people pay for the full app but I’m very disappointed in the developers. Fix this simple bug and I would gladly rate 5/5 stars.

Just one thing....

I find this app to be stupendous with one somewhat sizable flaw: every time I go and click on “favorites” to see the articles that were my favorites, I’m kicked out of the app. It’s very irritating. Still an excellent app overall though.
