Average News without headache

And by "headache", I mean the migraine that I get from listening to the worst news group in the history of morning shows! Nasally dumb female that stumbles on her words (how did she pass a voice test?). And the most annoying, goofy and dorky looking weather guy with no speech abilities... He mispronounces 1 out of every 5 words! This morning news team is like the "Home for Broken Toys!"
This app keeps me from having to look at or listen to these imbeciles... So.., 3 star app. Worth it.

Not current

I just opened it on Sunday 10 pm. The headlines were all from Wednesday. Four day old news has no possible value to me.

Rarely loads -crashes often

When the app does not crash, it is set up well with good icons. However, 75% of the time, it crashes before it even opens.
