Some features do not work This app, as it was written, works well, as long as you only want to read the snippets provided and do not care to read the whole story. Many snippets contain non-working "click here" links that contain no links. The links that do work take you out of the app to a browser, and I have just hit a pay-to-read roadblock that I will not fund.
Good, except for ads Great news app. Good to see local interests and business highlighted. Really annoying that almost every ad covers the text of a story. I don't mind ads, but don't let them cover the text, that's amateur programing and contradictory to the purpose of the app.
Only get part of the story Advertising covers and blocks entire paragraphs. Report it for blocking the page and it says they'll look into it, while still blocking the page. Why wouldn't I go somewhere else where I can at least read the entire article?
B Jones This is an ok app. It would be better if it did not have so many advertisements. When I open this app I am looking for news. Not someone who wish to sell me something. The many advertisements are annoying.
Ads overlay stories Instead of simply moving the texts of the news stories down to make room for the ads, they plop the ads right down on the story text. What kind of amateur foolishness is this?
Pretty good It's a wonderful news app. Nice layout, easy to follow and use. The only issue I have is even with no push notifications checked, I still get them, for whatever reason. It's distracting.
We love your feedback and are making updates based on it!
- Big updates with advertising: if there are ads, they will load faster for you and the experience will be better! If an ad spot is empty, it will disappear.
- Services in the background have been updated to provide a more rich Sports (SportsDay) and Entertainment (GuideLive) experience. We also made lists and stories load faster across the app.
Keep an eye out for future updates as we add exciting new features throughout the year!
