  4. News feed is showing only Lifestyle news

    When configured in Greece/Greek language, news feed only shows Lifestyle news. When Lifestyle category is disabled and all other categories remain enabled, news feed shows absolutely nothing.

  6. A lot of repetition in the news feed.

    Hi,

    I don't know how the algorithm searches but it appears to show the same or very similar stories from different news sources. Some of them have exactly the same title and even appear next to each other in the feed.

    more customisation options (up/down voting stories?) would be very useful.

    thanks

  10. les sites actualités ne s'ouvrent pas

    Dans le flux d'actualités lorsqu'on clique sur un article, la page commence à s'ouvrir et se bloque. Si je clique en haut à droite sur les 3 petits points puis "ouvrir dans le navigateur par défaut, ça marche.

  15. News feed shows old news

    The launcher News tab currently shows 3-4 day old news. There are more recent items in between the outdated ones, but not many.

    Perhaps the feed should be reverse chronologically sorted.

  16. News email says "connect to a network and try again"

    On the Your Feed page, then News, select an article, then select email icon; always get the message "connect to a network and try again". Get this for any article I try.

  17. News story blank

    When I click on a news story, launcher navigates to the url and displays the story. At random points, the screen is blanked... The window looses all the text. Scrolling does not bring it back. I have to nav backwards to the news story list, re navigate to the story. Now I can read it until it decides to blank out again. Very frustrating.
