This is like a throwback app-- and that is not good... It glitches, is poorly designed, irritating to navigate, inconsistent to failed video playbacks constantly. So, throwback in the sense that when apps did this, this one does this now-- trouble is, we're ten years into the game. Go back to the drawing board, this version is not practical, useful or functional.

I enjoy reading about my neighborhood as well as surrounding neighborhoods. It feels more personal.

As of the last month, when attempting to use app, receive a banner stating that I am not connected to wi.fi (but I am), finally it will let me veiw sone of the news, but not all. It freezes and drops connection. I really am disappointed because this used to be my go to apo for All my news in the DVM. Will there be an upgrade of this app in the future?
