The news items are usually timely, concise and relevant. But I am regularly aggravated by the loss of the last line of print of many paragraphs. Similarly, misuse or simple misspelling of words, such as affect and effect, is disappointing in professional news media. Better editing is needed. WLTX is my favorite local news app, and I really hate to see these "ragged edges" detract from otherwise good reporting.

I scrolled down looking at the latest news reports, and I am constantly sent back to news I wasn't interested in. Then after every 30 seconds or so, I am sent to the very top and I have to scroll all the way down to I was. Just to have the feed go all the way to the top after 30 seconds. What a waste of time and WLTX frustrating me. I'll get the news the old fashioned way... i will watch television. Uninstalling this now. UPDATE-it is easier on Roku Streaming.

Latest version is extremely sluggish and difficult to navigate. I don't mind the ads, but in this version of the app, they pop up at random while you are trying to scroll down to another section to select. As a result, you often select something other than what you intended. This version is nice to look at almost impossible to navigate. I would rather use the old version.
