Fails to retrieve new articles, video blanks out
For several months now, and after several updates, I still have to kill the app almost daily from the iPad multitasking pane and relaunch it to get news articles which have been published since the last time I used the app. I have tried deleting the app and reinstalling it. Recently the video has started going all black on stories after the first one played and I again have to kill the app from the multitasking pane to clear this new symptom. I use iOS 5 and don't believe that is the problem since the symptoms have been occurring for several months now. My iPad is a 2nd generation model MC769LL wifi only. I use the app daily and other than this annoyance the app is awesome and worthy of five stars. It works flawlessly on my iPhone 3GS.

Audio only
In full screen, I turn down volume when segments were switching and then only audio came out, video was black.

Looks nice but does not load videos
The new app looks great but it just does not work. The video streaming is choppy if you ever get it to load. Other services stream with ease on same device on the same network so I assume this is an issue with the app and their network.

Great app
Thank you for getting rid of the comments. It was more spam than anything. But you really need to keep the video volume consistent across the board. I have to turn my volume up a lot for some and then the next video blares very loud. Frustrating indeed. Other than that, it's a wonderful app. UPDATE: Please fire your audio guy/girl. Some sound tinny now. Get it together.

WAS my favorite News App
Now I feel like deleting it and going back to CNN. Was it the latest update? Dunno, but now the screen goes black as I am streaming through news clips. To reset it, nothing works except for restarting my IPad altogether. Bleh.
