This app is terrible! Every article I click on, it opens for a few seconds then it disappears and the screen is white. I've uninstalled then reinstalled, updated it and have tried it on different devices. Same thing each time. I have to go to the website to read thr articles because the app is totally useless. If I could give it zero stars and still be able to post this review, I would.

You're videos do not play in the app. When you copy the link into browsers on the phone, your video provider has some funky codec or something that also fails to play. Quick note for the app developers from a fellow developer, test your app in multiple scenarios and mediums. Fix the darn videos when half the app are stories with videos.

This app is awful. Most of the time you get 2 paragraphs in a story and the rest is white screen. I have a newer phone so no tech excuses. No problems with all the other local news apps.
