What's New in Version 3.0.2
iOS 8 compatibility updates
Form Over Function
Clunky navigation, too many ads that get in the way. Social media sharing from this app rarely works even if the app is allowed to use a Twitter and Facebook apps.
Stories are slow to update, breaking news alerts rarely are displayed.
I really like this app and use it daily. It keeps my informed about everything and weather is ALWAYS accurate.
More commercials than news!
EVERY news video is preceded by a mandatory 30 second commercial! First you get an alert about a headline, which is great, but when you go to learn more about it, they force you to watch a commercial first. There is no way around it unless you cancel after the commercial starts.
