Commercials are ruining the app I really do like having this app to watch the news in the morning while I'm getting ready for work. I understand the need for having a short commercial play before the live feed kicks in, but I have had documentary length ads start to play. I had to back out and click through 6 times this morning before I got one that was less than 20 minutes long with no option to skip the ad. The longest one was 45 min. What is the logic behind watching a 20 minute commercial in order to get to see a 30 minute news cast?
My only complaint is still breaking news alerts. When I click on a breaking news alert the news is not yet in the app. The link goes nowhere. Please either make the alerts more descriptive until the article materializes or sync the alert to the actual article before sending alert.
Alerts are way too loud. Many are unnecessary. An alert should only be an emergency that affects a large majority of people in the area, not just a neighborhood. Nor should an alert be a news item that can be read on line, unless it is truly a life-shattering event for an enormous amount of people. This version has removed the loud alerts and doesn't send as many unimportant ones.
I deleted this app for the purpose of trying to get it working properly. The breaking news stopped sending me alerts, Amber alerts not reported, and the video player, kept sending error noticed when i wanted to watch a story. Other than that, since I do not watch television, it keeps me up to date.
Very good Comparatively speaking, it's the best you will get in Charleston. News 2 would be better but malfunctions constantly. Ads are terrible but no worse than the rest
Great! Love this app. The only complaint that I would have is that when you click on the breaking news link in the notification bar it sometimes doesn't take me to the actual story
