The last words of most paragraphs are cutoff & don't show up anywhere, making the paragraph or sentence meaningless or worse yet potentially misleading! This may be a software issue with possibly the insertion of ads incorrectly overlapping the last line of the paragraph the culprit. That should be a simple fix, in the meantime I'm not interested in using your app as I'm not getting the complete & accurate written post. I can't imagine why it's not fixed long ago, doesn't anyone at KGW read?

Seem to have lost the ability to view in list mode. Now I only see two headlines at a time. Things keep getting worse, videos are inconsistent at playing, however the 15 - 30 second ad (which is always the same one) seems to play every time. Five years later, and I still feel the same way. Hard to see the headlines, images are annoying, notifications don't take me to the stories. Time for a different app. Shame really, used to be the best one.

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!
