Ratings and Reviews
Noisy Ads waking spouse action news app better
This is a follow up to an earlier review. The app still has instant loud pop up ads that randomly appear. Considering many people enjoy reading the news peacefully in bed or at other times these loud ads don’t seem appropriate. Certainly far cry from the traditional enjoyment of a newspaper anyway. I’ve found a temporary solution on the iPhone of double clicking the home button and swiping up to quickly close the app. Then I wait hoping my wife doesn’t wake up from the loud but brief noise the ad made :-/
PS I know they need revenue but since Chico ER targets a Chico audience couldn’t they just add sponsored articles like the action news now app does. There they have a private dining ad for Chico restaurants etc.. and Chico area targeted ads may appeal to local businesses.
I've had to delete and re-install this app multiple times. It works for a week or two then, out of nowhere, when you click on an article it takes you to a Press+ account sign in page. Sometimes I can just hit cancel to read the article, but most times it spits me back out to where I have to click on the article again. I will have to repeat the process about 3-4 times before it actually lets me read the article. I would give up on this app except it's my only access to local news. Please fix this glitch.
Good when it works
This app is kind of hit or miss. When it loads properly, I appreciate having it and the ads aren't overly annoying. But sometimes I experience a problem where it doesn't load new content and I'm looking at 1 day old info.
I'm glad to have the app and it's not terrible. Just not great either.
I wish the Opinion section was at the top not the bottom. Also wish I could search.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
