Customer Reviews

Everything is just too big!

...and I'm viewing on an iPhone 6. The top story (forecast at the moment) takes up 50% of the screen. The red bar at the top for breaking news, etc. is always there. Sure, you can close it, but as soon as you open the app again, it reappears; it doesn't automatically disappear while scrolling the headlines either. Plus advertisement at the bottom, only 1.5 headlines are actually visible when launching the app! The app is set to use my system text size settings, and it's as low as it can go. Bigger is not always better, I can't even begin to imagine what this app looks like on an iPhone 4 or 5!

Not Trustworthy Predatory Advertising Scams

The new advertising ribbon at the bottom of each page is made to look like your Facebook notification bar. They stooped to the level of making a red notification flashing on the inbox icon, hoping to trick unsuspecting users into thinking they have a Facebook message. When the ribbon is clicked on you are taken to the advertiser. This is terrible marketing for a large news source who is supposed to be representing the peoples news. Can you really trust their news stories? Or are they more concerned about preying on unsuspecting users to get advertising clicks? This is some low class Scam!


The only good thing about this app is the weather and traffic condition notifications in the morning. Other than that, they send at least 6 notifications throughout the day. Not everything is breaking news! Videos rarely load. Not worth it. I would rather watch the news on TV.
