Stories not in chronological order

Good app, the news alerts on my phone finally bring this market’s news media into the 21st century. My one complaint is that the stories on the app are not listed in chronological order. A story from two days ago may be listed ahead of a “Breaking News” story from an hour ago. To find the most current stories, you have to scroll through all of them to make sure you find them. Otherwise, the app is the best one for this local market.

Gone so wrong

As a committed KESQ/CBS 2 viewer, love always liked the app. But in the last couple months or so it’s gotten horrible. The ad for there own app is local news first, ya right! You open the open and it’s national and world news. Also you have English and Spanish mixed on the app, which makes it a pain. After opening app you can select my news I guess for local, wrong again. But I guess we’ll have deal with due to newscast are going the same way. Disappointing, I’ve had to down load the other stations app just so I can see what’s going on in the valley.


Lesson in not how to run a news app

First of all, living in the valley you only get news from one side no matter who you get it from. This news app defiantly does not stray far from that. If it’s not their opinionated take on events then it’s a CNN article. Which does a disservice to be fair and impartial.

Next, the news stories are jumbled messes of English and Spanish versions. Why they wouldn’t have a specific section for any language they decide to write a story in is beyond me.
