As a new member I am not sure how the old site acted long ago but when I did access it there seemed to be a smoothness to it. I also realize all new apps have a period where bugs must be worked out. Thus I have refrained from comment until invited.
It seems the site is slower now and buffering quite a bit. When an article is selected it does a short reverse buffer then does a long buffer clockwise. The tab itself flickers and then when you select read on one page the articles jump about a bit and then settle but the tab itself continues to flicker and buffer. The tab continues to buffer and flicker even after the article displays on one page. I have tried access on two different computers in two seperate location which have differing net service providers with the same results. Also when you go to correct errors in this message box sometime deletions are duplicated. Also having trouble signing in I think due to a long time waiting for the system to complete its loading. If I wait a minute or two before hitting the tab for entering my name and password it seems to work ok. Just too slow all the way around. I have been going to the home page from the net to read most articles instead of accessing from the new app because it is easier to use. Squirt some oil on the new app please.

as for me, I preferred the old site, before restructuring. Now it seems to much on one page, confusing..
but then,may be it is better for others.. using various apps.. so, go ahead with you think,feel is best.
Obviously you put a lot of work into improvements -though some friends may not see improvements as such. Most important is the content!! best wishes, christel

You can actually use the Android app with no issues onAmazon fire. Using it myself for this post... App or site FYI.

Hi Steve. No there is not an app for Kindle Fire yet. However since there is for Android, maybe the app works for Kindle Fire too??
