Device(s) App Was Tested On:
All the features are accessible, accept for the list of search results on the search screen. However, it's perfectly possible to use the app without this feature, as its main purpose is listening in background and letting it pick interesting news and audio for you. I'm sure search will be fixed in future, as when this app was originally released, no buttons were labelled, and the slide out information could not be accessed. I emailed the developer, and this was fixed within a month.
I love this app! It's the only personalized news app I have found that is smart enough to use my location to give me Canadian focused news. All the other apps I've tried give me exclusively US news.
