This USED to be an ok app for getting Alaskan themed news, but lately it has been worse than abysmal. Click on a story and the app launches you into the browser with a broken link. You cannot view stories in the app or even launched from the app, so why bother? Not auto rotate for landscape viewing. On the off chance you do get a story to load in the app, don't bother going back to the home screen because it's just be gibberish and won't reload or allow you to scroll down for more stories. This app needs to be pulled.
I appreciate that this source is still free, that said it's simply terrible to use. First off there is no landscape view, why? Second the UI is awful. Some stories open into a Safari window some, open without the accompanying photos and there's no way to increase the font sizes. Please give us an update that makes this app usable.
I agree 100% with the Awful review
