Search function ?

Why the hell isn’t there a search function?

Infuriating app I regret getting

1
Aside from every third piece being a bizarre profile of a random bartender as if he was some kind of celebrity, or a review of some cocktail recipe or liquor label, most of the good content is "inside" and requires an additional subscription charge. Worse, the app has SO many (and such obnoxious) ads and pop-ups that the app crashes my phone nearly every time. The app also wont run if you have pop-up blockers running.

Fixed article sidebar

2
There is no option to hide the sidebar that has the list of article in it. As a result, you can not read articles in fullscreen. Nearly half of the screen is devoted to this sidebar. It’s extremely obnoxious.

iPad App Lacks Full Content!

1
Unlike the iPhone, the iPad version only gives you Top Stories & Cheat Sheet. Not acceptable! And then, even with a paid subscription, you still get ads.

Subscription signup page “Unsecure”, some links don’t work

4
I got this so I could read Betsey Woodruff Swan and other great political investigative journalists. Paid for $1/mo/30 days. But cannot manage topics due to unlinked links today. If you fix this, I’ll renew & update review. So far, not as much fun as I thought w cheat sheets, etc. due to links!

Love the content but

Dear god the ads! I’m a paid subscriber and I enjoy listening to music while reading and your ads consistently take over my device while scrolling an article. It’s frustrating

Ads

Ads, ads, ads. Took only one look to get my fill!

Beware of Subscription Slamming!

1
I had been a user of the free version of this app for some time and I do like it. However, they are CONSTANTLY trying to get me to upgrade to the paying service and I have no interest at all. Now they have gone too far. Some how they are Subscription Slamming their free version users. Don't know how it is happening but I can tell you that I have NO interest in the paid service and somehow I find a $34.99 charge on my iTunes account for a yearly subscription to it. Beware!

Ads are ridiculous

1
Gosh I can’t even listen to a track because the annoying ads stop all music. Also annoying to have every other story be an article on something they wanna sell
By Samxt21

Ads with sub?

4
Reporting is top notch, app seems fine, but am I supposed to be seeing advertisements when I’m logged in and I have a subscription?
