This app isn't even usable anymore. Click a headline, usually you are stuck on the fox 8 screen. If it does end up loading after a minute, most of the time it's only the first few sentences of the story and then everything is blank. It's only been the last few months this has been happening.

I have deleted and reinstalled this App numerous times over the past couple of weeks. When attempting to go "Live," an ad plays(with no audio), and then the App freezes. Please fix this problem already! Fox did display the QR code for this new App during news broadcasts for a short period but, I see that they no longer do this.

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.
