What's New in Version 6.5
You asked and we listened.
- You can now get weather for your current location, even if you're out of market.
- The "More" tab has been changed to the "Sections" tab, and we've added more sections based on your feedback.
- We also polished the article layout on tablet for an improved reading experience.
Thanks for updating and keep letting us know what features you want to see.
Could be better
If you download this app, watch where you swipe with your finger because you WILL accidentally touch one of the countless, giant-sized ads, which begins a time-wasting process of launching Safari, you getting the ad page to stop loading, closing that tab in Safari so it doesn't keep loading every time, closing Safari, and switching back to read your news stories.
Also, there are lots of spelling and grammatical errors in news reports, which makes me question credibility and competency to write and present news stories. Unprofessional, but that's the landscape of all news media web content these days.
Update: I deleted this app after I could no longer control when the ads would launch in Safari. They would just... pop up... Randomly and frequently. Sorry Channel 7, I like Action News but this app is awful.
Good app but could be great
Would be nice if I could zoom in on pictures to get a better look at them. Without this one small but useful feature I will give it two stars instead of five!
Still not there...
This is not the news app you are looking for, move along... Maybe next version will be a return to greatness. Don't hold your breath though.
