App doesn’t work well

Keeps moving between mobile format and regular format. The content is fine but the site needs to be fixed. This does not work well with my iPad. Also when articles are listed, they often require that I subscribe to the underlying publication. That defeats the purpose of this site. Finally ads are increasing and becoming an issue with the ability to read an article.

The App seems mostly to be focused on the 2016 election.
I have zero interest in the 2016 election.
Hello! It is 2020! Why is there anything about 2016.
Who cares!
The 2020 info is clumsy to access, such as in the list of Battleground states, it takes forever to click on individual states in the drop down list, as the ads have to load. Way too frustrating to bother with, as there are much better sites.
I just don’t get all of the 2016 data being featured and why 2016 has precedence. Makes no sense.
Again, it is 2020, not 2016.
I wanted the comment directly to them, but there is no mechanism to do so. They have no interest in receiving feedback. Hey with all of their resources they choose to have such a crappie app.
I look at the polls home Trump vs. Biden averages.
Anything requiring a click isn’t worth the frustration of the interminable time it takes the stupid ads to finish.
Other than the average Trump Biden it is mostly useless less you have the patience to wait on the ads.
I don’t. I have never, nor will I ever click on any ad or sponsored link, and always close ads I can close, but never say why because it doesn’t matter, as I don’t care what ads Google shows me as I have zero interest in ads, and close them immediately anyway.

Great Articles - Poorly Executed Display

Love the articles but there now appears to be fewer of them. The app seems to be “improving” itself into oblivion. The format is terrible, as it now roams and moves around with a mind of its own, making it difficult to actually read the articles. The old version was so much simpler and much better at both number of articles and format - I could look at all the articles available and make my own choices as to what to read. Please return to what made your app so great. I don’t need you to separate everything under banners - i can read and make my own observations and see what the news of the day is. Please fix the format issues so we can actually see and use the otherwise excellent content.
