Bad alerts full of unlabeled ads

If you just want the headline alerts, ok. But so often if you don't click on them within 5 minutes the story is no longer there or you scroll endlessly looking for the story. But you can be sure that the bought stories that CNN huffington post and the others have are all at the top and easy to find. What good is this "local" news

Furthermore why are items god enough to send headline alerts about but can’t be found on the site. This is a crummy - to give it a good name- and poorly executed app!!

It's a good quick source of news

Although I wish I could get to full articles more easily from the alerts, I love everything else about this app and the news information. The alerts are quick and timely even when I am traveling in and out of the country. The news feed is a good mix of local, national, and worldly news too. Keep up the good work ABC7CHICAGO!

Descent but could be better

News updates are handy especially when I travel constantly. But seriously, I have to watch a STUPID 30 second commercial ever single time I want to see a video?? C’mon enough with the greed.
And how about hiring someone to update this app on the weekends or after 10pm. Nothing much is added except useless filler.
Overall this site is better than all the others, but I hate the ADS!
