I really liked the previous version of this app. This version, however, is more like a swift kick to the nuts. The stories refuse to update or load properly. Additionally, it is now impossible to narrow down the stories that are appropriate to your area. I actually LIVE in Huntsville. Tuscaloosa is in for a chilly evening? Don't care. Someone got arrested in Mobile, you say? Fantastic! Don't care. Road construction is expected to cause traffic delays in Scant City? Thanks for the heads up. I will be sure not to travel to Scant FREAKING City this week. Also, I am glad to see a story from 2 weeks ago is still on the "Top Stories" page. I would have hated to have missed it. Did you farm out this app update out to the Obamacare site developers? Was this a Junior High class project? If I could sue the developers for punitive damages and mental anguish, I would. However, I doubt the lawsuit would make it on the "Latest News" page. In short, please bring back the previous version.

Not up to standards

To say this app represents a new 'digital' company, this is an awful representation. The stories on this app aren't up-to-date and they are lacking in information. Today I went to TOP STORIES and one of the 4 top stories was about the name of an orangutan. Seriously? Who picks the content of this site? The most recent stories aren't updated for hours and hours. Since we don't have a daily paper but three days a week shouldn't this mobile app provide as much info as possible??? Every time I try to get info on recent stories, it's usually the same story from that morning. No updates, no follow up. Only the first three or four stories are recent; the rest are 2-3 days old. Sad and truly a waste of time. It's an old format and it's not useful.



This app used be a fairly decent app. Despite the massive spelling errors and grammatical errors throughout its articles. Now, with the update, there are no articles to view or read. When I go to business or living or any other section other than news, there no articles. NO ARTICLES. The only articles available for reading are he most recent news articles and some sports articles. Even under the sports tab, there are no articles. It is time to return to the old app, scratch this new app, and start over. BYW the interface is not becoming in the new app. It is too much like Windows 8, which isn't user friendly. Please let us all know when the new app is released.
