    I used to love this app. On my Touch and iPhone it gives me loads of topics for news, from Technology news to local news.

    But, in iPad version I only get 4 Topics - top stories, world uk, sport.

    Wheres all the choices and options gone? It should be a better fuller experience on the iPad, not a cut short version. There's nothing in the general settings tab.

    Am I missing something here?

    Double check that you haven't turned off any feeds. In the top bar in the app, there is an "EDIT" button. It will bring up all the available story feeds. If you still can't bring up more than 4, you may want to do a hard reboot (old down top button and home button until the iPad reboots) and then reinstall the app.

    I can't find this edit button. And I've done several full boots since it's installation

    Ok. Still can't find an edit button, but I do get these options appear in landscape mode. Trouble is, I rarely use landscape. And as soon as I go back to portrait they disappear again.

    All solved.

    The edit button is also only in landscape mode. Done all my edits in landscape mode and all works well in portrait now.

    Thank you. Looks like I need to learn my apps better :p

    Damn, you scared me then, I thought they had messed with one of my favourite news apps. I had to check to see if you were right! Don't do that!
