What's New in Version 1.3.21
Used to Love it...
This was my "go to" app for news since it launched. Lately, however, it's been getting more and more annoying.
One glitch Fox News doesn't seem to be ever interested in fixing is that when I get notified of breaking news stories, the article is never actually posted in the app. I get a notification, and can't read about it!
The other major annoyance is the series of in-screen ads with either a cockroach or snake crawling across the screen. It's a form of Chinese torture, beginning as a small distraction, then escalating to a hair-pulling frenzy.
I've actually reached my breaking point. Other news sites offer more articles with less intrusive ads. If something isn't improved by the next upgrade, I'll delete this app.
Was there an update to make it better?
So I just clicked the live feed video and it required me to log on to our cable system which I did but then told me log on failed (no surprise since that's what it always does with TWC- it usually takes 10-15 tries to log on to their failed app, but that's another story) but now I'm completely locked out from even trying again. So while Fox News tells me I failed, I think that they are the ones who failed! I think maybe I preferred the previous rendition, at least I got to hear 30 seconds before it got interrupted by cutting out for a few seconds... Oh geez!
More annoying than informative
Horrible interface. Articles at too hard to find within categories. Buttons are too small and clustered to click the right one the first time without using a stylus, and you end up clicking thru multiple wrong pages before you actually click the link you want. Sends notification alerts for breaking stories but when you launch the app, they're nowhere to be found.
