App layout is good. But when I open the app all the past new article updates pop up in the middle of the screen and take me away from the page I was reading and takes me to an article I didn't want to read or open myself. When I click on an alert notification it takes me to the home page and not the alert I clicked on.
I've installed the app on two separate occasions and have immediately shut off notifications. On both occasions the app turns notifications back on. I love the website but I will be uninstalling the app for the final time.
Updated my rating from a 1 to a 4. The login issue was fixed and the app runs much smoother now for us Android users
Spinning circle is ridiculous. Just fetch the article data when I'm on Wi-Fi and cache it. There should be no need to reload it every time my screen times out. It's mostly text with a few photos/gifs. There's no reason it should take as long as it does to load an article. Notifications seem to FINALLY be fixed.
UPDATE: With the update from last summer, the app usually works fine. Still few bugs to work out, but those are mostly convenience issues rather than critical flaws. Content is best in Pittsburgh. App is a dumpster fire. Frequent crashes, very slow, some menu options don't work (sp. selecting which teams to receive info on). Mine currently refuses to load, continues to get an error screen. I'm just accessing it on my mobile browser as of now.
We LOVE this app, and this site! If you are a Steelers or Penguins fan, a Pirates fan (if such a creature still exists), a follower of any of the Pittsburgh area college teams, or just a loyal Yinzer, this app is a must! You won't regret it.
Our biggest update yet! With this one, we're proud to offer our first live player for the new DK Sports Radio venture. On the radio page, simply tap the play button and hear the latest programming from our entire staff, headed by morning host Matt Gajtka. We also still offer the full complement of podcasts culled from this programming, so you can choose what you want to hear.
