Nice idea...terrible execution. It's helpful when it opens.....and that's not often. I have to uninstal and reinstall to open once....then, do it all over over again to open again. Once inside, the stories are easy to find and laid out in an organized manner. It's beneficial to have news about our area in a convenient place. If the "bugginess" of the app gets fixed, it would be 5 stars.

Wish I could finish an article. Since downloading it, I have opened the app many times, just to close it before anything was displayed, because I ran out of time waiting for it to load. Very laggy. Then, when I do get the article up, I get ½ way through it, and the screen goes blank. And if it is not the #1 story, good luck finding it again. Think I'll just stick with their website. Uninstalling now.

I'm guessing there was was update recently. The icon for the app changed and the look inside is a little different but the app is empty. All I see is a white screen. The navigation pain doesn't list any information. The home page is always blank. May have to delete this app for good if this isn't corrected. I uninstalled the app and downloaded it a second time; the issue continues to persist. Ever since the update, I am unable to get any news articles through the app. No morw local news I guess.
