OK app ... Has issues with notifications
The recent update to not make notifications go away is awful. There's no way to clear the notification without reading every single one. And heaven forbid you don't have that notification on your screen anymore to pull up.
I had to turn off notifications off.
Also, too many notifications. You get several notifications of "breaking news" all about the same thing within 30 minutes or an hour.
I would love a way to customize the notifications I receive. And to clear them if I don't want to read them.
And while we're on the topic of notifications, when watching the live feed, a notification pops up stopping the live feed and I have to watch the ad again to start up the live feed. Notifications shouldn't pop up when in the app already.
Fix the over-notifying and the being unable to clear and the app is fine.
News alert counter
The only problem I am having with this app and have been having this issue for the last week or so. Is the news alert counter which is currently at 99 and counting. How do I get the counter to disappear and return back to zero how do I delete the news alerts before I just would open the app and the news alerts would disappear back to zero and no red dot would be there.
Seriously? Not possible to erase unread alert count?
Does KRON really expect every news alert that they send to be read? I will read the news alerts that are of interest to me and ignore the others. But those news alerts that I do not read increment the counter, you know, that little red dot with the number in it. Extremely annoying! 😩
