What's New in Version 3.5.1
Too Many Comercials
The one before the episode starts was annoying but bearable and to a degree understandable. Anywhere from 5 to 16 consecutive ads between sections of the same episode are completely ridiculous and uncalled for. I love your shows, and reporting, but come on 16 commercials even at 8 seconds each? How is that necessary? Specially on a day-after broadcast of the evening news. 1 star until you cut down on the commercials. Still completely overrun by commercials. How are 11 ads necessary before Anthony Mason tells me the episode is over. Seriously cut down on the intercutting ads. 1 or 2 short ads are fine. But sitting through eleven of them, seriously that's just offensive.
Great, live news and journalism that is also real
I think this is a solid app for live news top class journalistic coverage that is always up to date and current. Authentic, high quality journalism enabled by simple and effective digital technology at its finest. I would highly recommend incorporating this one into whatever regular cycle of news sources, apps, etc. you rely upon. Also great on Apple TV!
Timeline is wacky
I like the constant news reporting. That is very nice. The problem I have with this app is the moving timeline below. When you are moving the time line headlines below looking at the different news stories, it will move back to the beginning making it very difficult to select a story to watch. This is very annoying. You can barely select a story to watch. It takes me three or four tries to actually select it. Please fix this.
