Fix the Weather.
This is a great application for the most part. But where it struggles is the weather, every time I click to read 'Full Forecast' for a in depth look of the weather, it only loads half of the actual description of the forecast, which forces the user to have to refresh the weather again, for only the same issue to occur. This occurs on ALL my Apple devices. It's highly annoying and has me diverting to other Applications to read the weather.
Fix it please or beta test your application with iOS users prior to submission. I hate to say it, but NBC26 has you beat in the weather department.
Annoying interface and add display
First of all, it's a good news app, the content is up to date and reliable. With that said, the interface is very hostile:
Apart from the adds all over the app, the pop-up adds are very annoying and distasteful, I know they want to bate you to click on them but that just seems to shady
The way the navigation buttons hides and appears only at the top or bottom of the articles is also a poor decision in my eyes, doe at provide de user with the flexibility, I feel railed and trapped.
Did I mention the annoying adds?You get the picture...
I personally only use this app for the notification alerts, don't like to visit the news articles due to these issues, I use the NBC 26 app when I want a pleasant reading experience... Please fix!!
Great news app with one major flaw...
...it STILL needs to be updated to support iPhone 6(s)/6(s) Plus!
