Guys, the app keeps logging me out and I am forced to sign in daily. Please fix. It's also a little laggy but that may be just me.

The ken is my everyday cup of coffee in the morning. Something which I can never give up ! Truly a mind-blowing job by the team. Maybe a search option will be useful to to navigate. Anyway, great job guys!

The content is quite good, but the app keeps giving issues. The biggest issue is I have to login every time to view the content. Please help fix.

I'm a big fan of the content since the beginning and you guys are doing a great job! Some design feedback on the new app shared below: 1. The dumb list of ~300 articles is almost impossible to navigate. The thumbnails in the list are too large and thus have made the list very long. Also read and unread articles basically look the same there (the red line indicating '% of article consumed' doesn't help much). Why isn't there a filter here to remove read articles here. 2. The weekly digest is a better place to keep track of unread articles. But even here, read and unread articles get the same visual treatment. 3. Thumbnails are too big throughout the app. Info should be more densely packed, for easier browsing. 3. Ideally, the filter to remove read articles should apply throughout the app and for all sections) 4. Topics is also a great way to manage articles you haven't read. Maybe this could be the first tab in the app. 5. Search has a small bug at the moment. Works great otherwise. 6. The scrolling is not smooth at all. For some reason can't scroll down to the end of the article in one quick vertical swipe. This is quite frustrating, tbh. Hope the above feedback is not discouraging (that's not the intention at all). The app design language and theme works really well, overall. And the articles are very easy to read. Thanks and keep it up!
