I really don't understand why, when I open the app, it runs you through a numerous commercials/ads only to put you on standby to wait... for the next set of Advertisements. My thoughts are that if I'm trying to watch the news from 11:00p on the previous day, that it should be pretty seamless, besides ads of course.

Vastly inferior to the previous version. Does not allow direct and simple download. Can only view by opening old app, clicking on "upgrade" which takes you to Google Play (android) where you then select "open" which takes you right back where you started (old app home page with "upgrade" option) - only now there is a menu icon in the upper right corner which leads to a tedious process of locating stories. No more "Top Stories" header. The number of steps is ridiculous. Fix it, please!

App freezes within a minute of opening every time I use it. Never had this problem until the last update. If it can't be fixed, I'll be happy to switch to WJAR's app instead.
