Engadget Android App broken?

Hey guys! First of all: Thank you for your incredible work on keepin' us up to date!
But unfortunately I can't get my daily dose of news on the new Android App. After first launch it listed the current articles and never updated ever since. Reinstalled it: same scenario. It might have something to do with the dates of the articles. They're all dated Jan. 1st 1970. My Android device has the correct date and time.
Please fix this or give me a hint how to circumvent the problem.
Thank you!

I've had the same issue for a while. I just received an update for the app and it's still there: all articles are dated 1/1/70 and no newer articles load unless clearing app data through the applications manager.

Same here. Russian locale. All new articles come as 1/1/1970 after the latest update. The application became useless.

It's working fine for me here in the US - new articles appear and dates are all correct on both my devices (HTC One with 4.4 and Nexus 7 2013 with 4.4.2)

On the German Play Store I got the impression that I am not the only one with this problem. Maybe a regional issue?
