What's New in Version 3.2.1
Older versions were better
Top and bottom banner ads eat up lots of space on my iPhone. Since they usually are displaying the same thing, how about picking just one or the other.
Amount of video available has been drastically reduced (though that might not be due to the app). I used to use this app every day to get my central Oregon news. Now I go primarily to the Bend Bulletin website and only check this app every week or two.
Still getting worse
The giant pictures make it hard to filter through which articles I want to read and I really can't stand the new sidebar - liked it better before the big changes: simple, easy to read. Also there are never really a lot of updates or new stories. Obviously the people in charge of the app find it more important to complicate the readers' ability to use it than to include more interesting stories. Hate it. Probably going to switch to a different news app.
Pictures and headlines way too large; local news is not local
This is a very difficult app since the change in graphic layout. It is not easy to scan for the news items. Furthermore, where has the local news gone? If the app does not become more coherent, I will delete it as it no longer is user friendly.
