The app opens to a advertisement page but does not allow access to the site after that.

As others have noted, the app displays the PopSci logo in the upper left of an otherwise blank screen.

I have this app installed on my machine, and the articles are great. **BUT**, NONE of the videos will play. So I gave it three stars. Then I remembered why I wanted to watch the videos. Reason: Articles are too short and certainly don't have enough information for me to be satisfied at the end of the article. Most of the articles leave me feeling as if I am not getting enough of the story to warrant sharing it with others. Certainly not enough to recommend the Pop-Sci app. Now we're down to two stars. NBC's video works, but NBC sucks. Why can't you put your "tech" guys on it ASAP. Now, down to one star. ADS that block the usability of the app. The only way I can get anything o look like it will work is to quarter-screen it. Looks like the science reporters need some science class for their scientists.
