Better than Fox News

A lot of fake science news pervades the app. that isn't really the apps fault so I can't blame it too much except it would be nice if "fluff" wasn't the only real option for designating that. Just like I wish it had reactions other than "troubling", "incredible", and "insightful". The frequent posters of fluff should certainly have some kind of discredit for their future postings.

Also the app is quite censored in terms of the comment section which annoys me but I guess it restricts trolling and ad hominem to some extent.

I'm critical and there are many possible improvements but overall this is my favorite quick access to scientific articles detailed and summarized

Used to be the best!!

Used to absolutely love this app!! Was my daily source for informative and intelligent science based information. Lately unfortunately that has changed a lot. Not only is the app BLASTED with annoying and irrelevant ads and click baits that give it a very cheap and superficial feel. I understand developers need ads to cover costs, but at this level it makes it feel like the app is just using science info crawled from other sources to get some ad revenue.

Also like others have said in reviews there’s a lot of bots or fake accounts that immediately flag ANY science news about climate as Fluff! Doesn’t seem like those are actual opinion because they are super fast to flag every single post about climate. Seems like a joke and looses more credibility. Especially for a science app…

Hoping it goes back to be the way it was as a more serious and relevant source for scientific information.
