The many updates they've done to this app over the years have been confounding. Each time there was some new annoyance. However, the last few updates went relatively smoothly until the latest update. Now half my articles only show me the first two paragraphs so I can't finish reading them. I've tried everything to correct this including uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing works. I prefer woodtv8 for my local news but might have to finally go to a different provider.

Like the app. But now there are some articles that have half blank pages. Tried deleting app and reinstalling. Same. UPDATE I emailed someone over 2 months ago about this issue. I was told that they are working on it. Obviously we still have the same issue. I again emailed someone yesterday. Have not heard back. This has been my go to app. I deleted it yesterday. Maybe some day, it will be fixed. And I can download it again. Right now, it's not worth the frustration. 0 stars

SLUGGISH AND BOGGY. AND NOW IT WON'T LOAD WHEN I OPEN IT!! I preferred it back before it was upgraded to the new version. At least you could move it to the SD card storage to conserve internal storage space. It's sluggish, boggy, not very smooth. Hard on the device processor. And now, the content won't load when you go to open the app. All I get is an error message saying my device doesn't have an internet connection, even if I switch from the LTE cellular network to wifi, and tap RELOAD.
