App was great for a while, now it takes forever to load. If it does load, the stories are there but the pics aren't. Also constant duplicate stories, some that stay on the board for weeks. Not sure what has happened over the past few months but this app is going in the wrong direction. I am editing the review to add that while reading a story the words will just disappear after a few seconds of reading. The page refreshes but the words don't come back. Nothing has changed since the first review

The app has been updated with a whole new look. I hate it. It's more reliable to open the story that the notification shows but he way the ads display is maddening! You have the option of viewing the story or reading it. If you choose to read, as you scroll down, the video keeps opening over the text. It should stay closed once you close it. I've had to re-close up to 8 times. Most of the time it's the news story but it's preceded by an ad. The app is easy to use but I hate the way it works now.

It WAS a great app for a long time. Now it's awful. No matter how many times I save my notification settings it won't send me any until I manually open the app then it won't send me anything once I close the app. It began to run very slow. Now it won't even open. Did they stop maintenance on the app?? This was my favorite news app. Now it's not worth the download. I guess I'll just use the WFMY app and the WXII app. Those work great and send me all the notifications.
