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.

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

This new app is horrible. I get home late and like to check the weather and I can't even read the weather description like I used to. I have to play the video and my husband is sleeping in bed and I can't do that anymore. The old app worked great and radar was spot on.Hard to navigate and the radar works when it wants too. Hate it. Going to download a different news app. Plus the colors are dark and depressing.

What's new

If you’re holding your device in landscape when entering an article screen, the video will no longer automatically jump into full-screen mode. If you’re holding your phone or tablet in portrait orientation when you’re on an article, then you can still quickly launch video full-screen mode by rotating it to landscape. We also fixed some minor bugs.
