Now its very messy!!! It had its issues in the past, but now you can't watch live without constantly touching the screen to keep it from turning off, all the articles are mixed in with adds, you keep thinking you got to the end, but its another add. Then all of a sudden the articles end, but it appears to be an add, the CONSTANT pop up videos taking up half the screen is annoying too.

This Fox 8 Cleveland app used to be a great app. Over the past few months (Not sure exactly when) the app has declined in usability. I will click on a story to read and after a few seconds of reading the story will just go away. The print will disappear and the background will remain; however, it will just be a white screen. Sometimes you can fix this by go out of the story and then back in 3 or 4 times but that's not a good user experience in my opinion.

Annoying app! Jumpy and jerky when you go to the article you want to read. Then you get a bar to continue reading, which is also jumping around. Then when you finally get to the rest of the article, the screen goes white. WTH. Ready to uninstall and get a different Cleveland station. Update 11/11/20. Your app still sucks. Some stories open to a white blank page. I'm done! Going elsewhere. Would rate you zero stars if I could. YOUR APP SUCKS!!!
