Hourly News inserts no ads into the app, but some of the sources place them in their news streams. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to remove those ads.
Like every app, download speeds are greatly affected by your connection (edge, 3G, 4G, LTE or WiFi). Edge downloads might take a little longer, 3G and 4G are faster, LTE is even faster still and WiFi is blazing fast to download the news updates in Hourly News.
