Ratings and Reviews
Like the local news, hate the amount of 'fluff' content
I will preface that I understand the fluff lifestyle articles featured on this app (and the website) generates revenue for them. But for me, the format in which they feature these click bait pieces drives me crazy. Regular ads I can tolerate, but the "lifestyle" slide-show articles mixed within the local / proper news feels disorganized and tabloid-y. To be fair, this is not the only news app or website that populates non-news 'sponsored content' articles into it's proper news feed and, as mentioned earlier, I understand it's income and keeps the app free. But it's a format that increasingly 1) doesn't work for me, 2) tests my patience and 3) makes my visits to apps and websites like this very short.
Rarely a problem
Love this app. Only issue I have is, when I get a notification about a news story or weather alert, if I don’t click on the notification immediately, and just open the app to find it myself, I can’t always find it.
Love getting the news quickly
But like others have stated, if you don’t open the headline as soon as it comes across the feed, it is difficult (if not impossible) to find the actual story. But other than that. Love it.
