4/5 stars

Thanks for the update!! One more suggestion...

:
This is the first review I've ever written. The app has always worked great and I truly appreciate the ability to read current, reliable news from a trusted international network. My only real problem with the app was how easy it was to accidentally swipe to the next page while scrolling down. Thanks for fixing the problem with this update, makes me realize that developers really do take into account the reviews and inspires me to start writing more.

On that note: It would be great if there was a way to search for older articles. It would make it easier for the user to get up to speed on any events he/she may not have background knowledge of.

3/5 stars

Better, but still needs work.

:
On an iPhone 4, it takes about a minute to load as it refreshes content. During this time it is unusable. After the initial load, it works very well. It is a great news app, but still needs a bit of work to clean up the initial loading.

4/5 stars

Different experience

:
Although I have just downloaded the app and lightly browsed the news, I have not experienced any crashes to date on my iP4 running, 4.2.1. I can't explain why others are having crashes on startup.
