Updates don’t accumulate in stacks

This app requires you to check in every day. Sorry but I can’t make that commitment. The updates in your stacks do not accumulate waiting for you to find the time to review them. Instead, you log on after a few weeks and find only 2-3 articles waiting in your stack. Clearly if you miss a day they disappear from your stack. I suggest they accumulate. You can also add a setting that they stay in your stack for a defined period before dropping off so that the stack doesn’t become unmanageable
