What's New in Version 4.3.0
Too buggy and the annoying ad almost gave me a seizure
App crashes or just doesn't work too often. Today it has some sort of ad designed to look like a media player that flashes so intensely I had to shut the app down. Thought I was going to have a seizure. Not only that, but their real news stories constantly direct you to links that are bogus news or ads. Not much point in a news app that gives you more crap than news. Unfortunately they all seem to be the same.
Too Many Old Stories
As large as Houston is, as diversified, and as cosmopolitan, this App contains very little useful news about the city, the county, or the state. It seems as if this station is "going along to get along". The news stories lack depth and hang around way too long taking up space for possible news with impact.
The is App is going to the "cloud" where it belongs.
For supposedly being a professional news outlet, in the 4th largest city in the United States, I have read better Mom and Pop county
Great app except....
Great way to read the local news and breaking stories. Only complaint is the red banner at the top of the screen. It's constantly moving but the headlines don't change.
It is so irritating that I quit using the app. When they get rid of it, I'll be back.
