Please fix this horrible app! Once this was a decent app for local news. Now not so much. It's really a challenge to get past the top headlines and into other stories without having to open and close the app several times. Next, why do the stories start with no sound, instantly close and then an ad appears and then the story starts again? I can understand showing ads but the ads should simply load first, then show the story. This latest version of the app has several bugs!

The app is horrible. I so want it to work because KGW traditionally has a good weather forecast. The app takes forever to load...it sometimes crashes... I get alerts about a particular headline, but clicking the alert takes me to a page of unrelated headlines. It's the clumsiest user interface. I keep it only because I'm not running out of space on my phone. The moment that happens, this app will be the first to go.

You guys need to fix your app! I've been using the KGW app for a couple of years now and it usually works fine but for the last several days (for me at least since I'm back to getting up at 5:30 am) the screen has randomly just gone black but the LIVE box is still inthe corner. It's very frustrating because I uninstalled and reinstalled the app hoping that would fix the problem but no dice. I don't want to have to switch news stations to one that will actually work but I will.
