Why is it that everytime I watch the news/weather and a random advertisement pops up right in the middle? I think I've seen more advertisements than the news/weather, itself, on this app. I would have better luck recording this stuff on a VHS tape than relying on this app. I understand advertisements during the breaks but for it to pop up during the news/weather. That ain't good at all. 👎

This app is great and informative. However, in my experience, three things could use a tune up..... 1.The video screen does not rotate to view in portrait mode. 2. The obituary section should continue where a person left off after selecting a certain obituary. It's annoying that you have to start from the beginning of the leading obituary. 3. The video play takes way too long to play. Think about the update guys and thank you.

This app used to work and still does on my iPhone. Just loads and screen is grayed out and doesn't respond on my Samsung Galaxy smartphone. I even restarted the phone and reinstalled the app no fix. I will have to find another source for my news.
