Customer Reviews

Not updated enough

4/6/17 update. The same stories are sometimes there for 3 days. Lots of typos, and it seems like the person writing the stories is an adolescent. Also, why can't we swipe left to the next story instead of having to go back to the list of stories every time we read one? It is less convenient to us but seemingly adds extra clicks to their website.

Update: even glitchier and more frustrating

Another update: fewer stories, more ads. They don't have metro section anymore, having replaced it with 'weather wisdom'. If they take out most of the local news, there are better news apps out there.

App Is Faster

Just tried it and it's clear it does load faster. Still, not as quickly as I'd have expected. Once it's open though it moves very quickly so a good update overall.

Swing and miss

Preferred older version, this takes too long to load. Tired of seeing Affleck and Brady (both of whom I admire) on unnecessary splash page. Seems like 70% of articles are AP, I want to read local writers. News
