I kinda feel like half the people reviewing this didn't actually try to use the app. Maybe it works on different models of phones, but I can't seem to get stories to load at all. Realm bummer, guys.

Since videos are the number one entertainment for me in this I can only give it 2 stars since videos hadn't worked in years.

Ads in the live tile is dirty marketing. I bet they're not even Onion ads, so they don't get their deserved revenue. Besides that, previews for articles don't show up until you've already read and exited the article.

Horrible. Rarely connects or stays connected even with WiFi, much less on 4G.

Loads headlines, videos etc. Then promptly they all disappear immediately after loading. Does not function at all do not waste your time.

Doesn't display article text, and frequently denies that I have a connection to the internet when I do.
