Clickbait notifications and reloading made me delete it

I installed this app to stay up-to-date on local news. As time went on the news articles pushed to my phone became increasingly clickbait-y. Having articles state "local police hunt for whatever" instead of "Pocatello police hunt for whatever" serve only to get people into the app and not to inform. This is especially worrisome when the notification potentially impacts me greatly. To be able to tell at a glance that a wildfire rages in my county vs if a wildfire rages in a local county is of huge importance. One informs me right away that my family is in danger.

And whenever I was in the app, any tiny thing would cause it to reload. Pop ups, checking notifications, etc all would trigger the app to frustratingly reload.


Keeps me updated on ID news

I don't live in Idaho anymore but I have family and friends that do. I like to stay informed on what has and is going on there and this news app helps me do just that. I enjoy ALL of the articles in fact we found out we had money owed to us thanks to the report on 'Lost Money in Idaho'. Thanks East Idaho News!!!
