Too many ads. I know they've gotta make money somehow, but still. Open a story, gotta watch an unskippable 30sec ad first. Another video halfway down, gotta watch another ad first. Tornado warning and sirens, click here to see a live weather report? Hope the tornado is more than 30 seconds from your house, because you've got to watch an ad first (yes, this actually happened).

What happened?! This app was great, but all articles were not showing up on the page so I updated it and now it's a big mess. The first sentence is there, but then you get the continuing loading circle (of course waiting on a stupid ad to load!!) You already have the ads on the main page, overloading your articles with them so the page doesn't load is obnoxious advertising. Really annoying to not be able to read the rest of the article because you have to wait on even more ads. Tacky

This updated version is terrible, and not nearly as user-friendly as the previous. The navigation is really sloppy, and certain sections are difficult to find handily. Not to mention the design is pretty sloppy/unappealing. I've deleted it, and will stick with another station's news app.
