New redesign is TERRIBLE. Too much screen real estate taken up with what some UI person THINKS looks good but just wastes space trying to be pretty, and if you don't want to follow topics, you can't get rid of that idiot banner. It's not as bad as KVUEs, but it's almost there and light years worse than the prior version. Ugly, slow and annoying.

This app is horrible, the previous kxan weather app was displaying blank screens and now I know why. I don't understand why after working so hard to fix all the previous app bugs they go and redesign this app completely introducing a ton of new headaches and more bugs to fix. I'm going to uninstall this hot mess as soon as I send this review, this is ridiculous. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Previously I could see weather radar, hourly forecast, 7-day at the press of a button, not anymore!

I recently became a part of Duck Duck Go's tracking blocker test and the KXAN app stopped working because of it. Turns out, KXAN is so focused on acting as a surveillance asset for anywhere between five and a dozen companies, that it fails to provide news if you stop them. Some of their employers will take every bit of data they can off your phone. Even before this sad finding the app was losing function as anything but an ad purveyor.
