App appears abandoned

This app seems to have been abandoned.
It’s a beautifully designed news feed type app, with top-quality analysis and graphics. Sadly, it doesn’t seem like they’re adding content anymore. Sign-in doesn’t work, unsure what extras that would unlock anyway.

Cannot Register

I am a CAC holder and have yet to find a way to register for an account. I emailed the help line that I found via Google search in an article about this app and received an automated reply. How are we supposed to create an account? Other than this issue, the public content is fantastic.

Decent app, but you can only really access main content if you have "government approval". IMO it's a bit unfair but eh, I like the design. 2/5 would not recommend.

P.S.- add in an 8-bit game to satisfy your bored customers
