Most of the stories I see are 1-2 minute videos. I usually prefer a written story anyway, but the mandatory 15/30 second, no skippable ad, really doesn't make it feel worth it. On top of that, when a notification is more than an hour old, tapping on it will open the app but NOT take me to the story. I usually can't find the story I'm looking for based on the notification.

Video Orientation - The only issue I have with this is with the live video. It has great video quality BUT when it rotates out back to landscape the screen goes white out with only the kens5 header showing. I can still hear the audio though. I just have to go back to the main screen and start the live video again. Overall this is a great app.

I don't like it. I can't find the radar like before for Del Rio, Hondo, Helotes, etc. I'm going to uninstall. Hard to navigate. I get notifications of news on my phone,I click on it, then I don't see anything about the notification. The app takes a long time to load. You have to see a screen that has Good Morning, Afternoon, Evening, takes about 35 seconds before the news. It wasn't that way before you changed App.
