It's not bad It's a pretty good application. What would make it better is if the UI was simplified, as it is it's a bit confusing how to get around. I really wish I could just access the full evening news broadcast and not have to pick individual stories. On the plus side the chromecast support is great, good job.
Miss the previous version Do not like the update. I miss night mode, which was easier on the eyes in low light situations. This used to be my favorite news app. Now it is rarely used. The simplicity was one of its greatest benefits, allowing me to quietly catch up on the news. Now, not so much.
Garbage, Too Video Oriented I hate the new version of this app. Why read when you can watch? Because I choose to read and don't want to watch. If I am somewhere private, I don't want to listen to a video, I want the option to read.
What a mess after this update, lost Chromecast Support completely! Updated this app and it was a strong downfall, notifications turned on and it lost Chromecast Support, what a way to ruin a news app, thanks for nothing! UPDATE 9/27: Still missing chromecast support, bring back the old version of this app.
No Cast Icon I loved this app because it gave me access to local news every morning, but since the update the cast icon has disappeared making it impossible to watch the news in the morning!!! I'm so frustrated, what is the issue?!?!?!!!
Problems-A-Plenty Since the update, this app has had the prevalent problem of not linking headlines with the correct article... Today for instance, every article but maybe 2 are all going towards this one, boring, story... Of course it's not ABC's fault it's my devices fault.
