Pop ups

I have used this app for years now and it just keeps getting worse. Cluttered interface that is unorganized. The worst part however is the full screen pop up ads every 5 seconds. I see the ads inline I don’t need them in my face full screen. Very intrusive and off putting. It actually makes me want to consume the advertised product less because now I have associated it with inconvenience and nuisance. Uninstalling the app and finding a new local app maybe WHO.

Too much extraneous junk to be useful.

I use MyRadar for weather now.

Too much going on in this app (that is there to get revenue for Hearst) than I’m willing to put up with.
30-second videos to see article/video that would take me 5 seconds to read.
Vuz is worthless to me. I only want local news in this app, lined up titles for easy selection.
When the ad videos started, I closed app, force closed it, forgot about this day.
I suggest you simplify it, returning to the pre-Vuz format.

The kicker: “This app may use your location even when not open, which can decrease device battery life”


The ads just keep playing full screen on my phone. Can’t even scroll for a second without an ad playing. Very frustrating.
