Accurate terrible reviews since 8/8/16
UPDATE 2 months later and an app update: it's actually worse since updating the app! It now crashes on the main news page EVERY time. I think I am just done with this app and will delete it and not reinstall. Absolutely horrible app development and maintenance. If I could give this a zero star, I would. Please don't waste your time installing this app. It does not work. I wonder how the advertising people think they invested in a good advertising vehicle??
Update 1 month later: nothing has changed from my initial post below. I even emailed them to make sure they know. They wrote back and said they were aware and I should uninstall and reinstall. I did that and it is still the same. Oh well, hopefully there will be a fix so we can use it again. Unusable as is now.
All reviews (which are negative) are accurate since 8/8/16. This latest release is absolutely horrible. It is slow, freezes when you try to scroll and crashes every single time the app is in use. As of now, this app is unusable. I tried to contact them trough the app, but guess what happened? You guessed it, crashed 3 times in a row, so I'm hoping they check these reviews and get it fixed.
I used to love this
Fox8 is my go to for news. I don't need all the adds clogging up my news articles. I also don't want pop up videos in my news, forcing me to watch something I don't want to see. Now there are videos built into the news feed I'm trying to read, blaring out the sound forcing me to scramble to close it before it wakes the baby! All of these adds and videos slow the app down and most of the time are the reason the app crashes making it impossible to read the article.
I would like to think that my voice would be heard here. But they will say the adds pay for the app. With so many adds and videos being forced upon me. It doesn't just pay for the app, it makes me not want to use it.
Terrible! Crashes all of the time! Too many ads!
There are so many ads that it really disrupts reading the articles, not to mention l, it also crashes the app constantly. I have had this app for many years now but since they changed it and started adding a lot of ads, it crashes all of the time. I can't even scroll through the top stories without it crashing on me. I understand that ads are necessary for income purposes, but when you can't find the last part of an article because there are too many ads in the way, that means there are too many ads.
