Too many notifications
I've had this app for a few years now and have always liked it as it gives me breaking news updates. When I hear that ping I know it's some kind of breaking news and urgent. Well now 6abc is sending notifications about tuning in to see the weather or some random news story. It's a bit much. I know how to turn a TV on and watch the news. I don't need you sending me notifications to watch the weather report. I wish they would pull back on these notifications as it's just too much and I'm ready to delete the app.
Newest Update Bad
Every time I go to open the app it crashes the first time. It takes at least two taps to get it to open. I also find there are times there are supposed to be photos or video for which there is supposed to be a link but I see none. I really love 6ABC and I wish they would get their stuff together on this app. I suggest two new employees: a release tester and a proof reader. Some of the mistakes in the text should be easily caught by just reading through what is to be published.
Horrible! Too many ads!!
Basically 6abc has placed more ads into their app then actual content! If you click a link from Twitter to bring you to a news story, you can't finish a headline without it prompting you to the App Store to buy some BS game. You have officially sold out 6abc, you used to be my favorite news media source in Philadelphia. I'll go somewhere where I can read the news. Not an advertisement. Don't download!
