Please stop sending out “alerts/breaking news” every morning before 6:00am. It may get be our day off, or we may not get up that early every morning. I do like to get alerts when it is important...... but I do NOT like for my phone to awaken me at 5:45 am, to find out misquotes are taking over region 8. Please continue to send us alerts if important, but please don’t send out “stuff” every morning just because. Please respect our chance to sleep in late occasionally with out being woke up by silly information.
Yes, we could silence our phones, but some of us choose not to just Incase there is a true emergency in our region 8!!
Thank you

New App

This new app is terrible. Loaded w/full size ads & pop-up ads. Then when u scroll thru the headlines of each story, it’ll repeat itself.
I use it mainly @ nite on lunch break @ work. The AT&T signal is poor here. The weather app is so busy w/HD quality, the Radar rarely loads?
Also, I’ve tried 2 find push-alerts 8-10hrs later, & not bn able 2 find the article? W/o having 2 go thru the push-alert itself.

Update news daily

Why keep the same crap up for a week? Can hear more news at the coffee shop for real! The weather app is getting better but loads slowly
Y’all could have a old news page for people that like reading stuff over again but have the new stuff first
Thank you for reading before deleting
