Update fixes nothing
So, finally we get a long-overdue update that fixes exactly none of the issues with this app. Still no support for iPhone 6/6+, still uses an iOS 6-style UI, still randomly crashes and freezes, the toolbar, "breaking news" and ads still take up roughly a third of the screen when trying to read articles. You're much better off just going to the ABC7 website. At least that way you'll get content that isn't zoomed and blurry, and it won't crash constantly.
Text size is huge
I've used this for awhile. I think there used to be an option to change the font size at the bottom but now that's covered by ads and there's no way to make the text smaller. I'm stuck with a huge font once I open a story
Uses too much resource.
Once this starts, it continues to use resources until the next time you power cycle. It is my biggest could user.
