v2.1 We had to make some additional performance enhancements for image loading and other fixes. This version should perform much better than v2.0. v2.0 - Loading time performance improvements - Allow local news lookup by city name - New audio alert for push notifications - Bug fixes
4.1.2 (Aug, 2014)-
This version is a small update that added support for the Amazon Fire phone along with some minor performance improvements.
The new interface is smooth and intuitive. (Galaxy Nexus vzn). I use this app every weekday to keep up with what's going on in the world. The content is good, and you can customize the front page to your tastes. I'm happy they added g+ sharing, too. The big long-running stories feature is also handy for discovering articles I might have missed.
The ap itself is great. I try to use it twice a day. The only problem that I have is that it will often automatically reboot my phone when I select a story. It doesn't happen all of the time bu more than 45% of the time. Very frustrating.
