There appear to be a number of issues with this app, but you can still browse and read news stories.
The issues that I've noticed so far are:
The menu button on the home screen of the app opens a submenu - you need to tap on the top third of the screen for VoiceOver to find it.
When browsing the list of categories to add or remove them from your home screen, VoiceOver does not read their selection status.
When viewing a list of stories double-tapping on the button labelled 'Tags' causes the app to crash. This does not happen when VoiceOver is disabled.
When viewing a news story the menu cotton again opens a submenu where you have to tap on it for VoiceOver to find it. From this menu, the Related Stories button takes you to a page that VoiceOver does not read.
If you can tolerate these problems, the rest of the app seems to be usable.
