Bad app


News west 9 is a west Texas based app that should be centered about west Texas news and it’s not. The app never works. I would suggest not using this app

App has gotten worse and worse with time


This app used to be a place to go to get good local news updates for the Midland and Odessa TX areas. Now it is full of all the worlds sadness Nd not very much local news. Very wasted time trying to see what going on I. Our area. Just like our government can not focus on what we need or what is going locally, have to worry about world wide junk we have absolutely no influence in and cannot fix. I hate all the sadness around the world, but I do not want to see it on my local channel. Change your focus back to West Texas and SE NewMexico and not maths world BS.

Liked the old app better


The old app worked just fine, but this new revamped app is awful. The design is prettier, but it's now loaded with a iAd bar at the bottom and it will randomly pop up a full screen ad. I rated it only two stars because all it still does is provide news, albeit in a less effective way than what it used to.

Bottom line: new app is spam ridden, old app was perfect.
