What's New in Version 2.8.4
What's new in this version?
-- We squashed a lot of bugs! Fixes for push notifications and advertising glitches.

-- Improved advertising spacing! We know people weren't crazy about the paragaph-ad-paragraph-ad issue. Our bad. That's gone!
Stupid, ridiculous, wife waking adds
Well this was one of my favorite news apps that I would read in bed before I would go to sleep. But now because you're trying to make every dime that you can in any annoying way you have the automatically starting audio adds that I don't even see a video but the sound starts and wakes my wife. So then I have to hurry up and close the app and then reopen it so you're really not accomplishing anything because I'm not going to listen to your ad because of the sound. Rant over. Well I waited a couple weeks and it's only gotten worse so I'm done. I'm deleting your app.
Update: Ads even worse!
With all the full screen ads in the app and the inability to dismiss them most of the time, I can ALMOST read a full story without an irritating full screen pop-up. The app itself is fine otherwise, but wow - ease up on the ads a bit or please offer a paid version. The latest ad feature is multiple back to back. Good luck reading anything except the ad.
Update is horrible
I’ve been a subscriber to your E-edition for a couple years. Prior to that I subscribed to your print edition. This app update is simply the least functional app I’ve ever used. If you didn’t publish the only newspaper in this region, I’d not think twice about deleting and never opening again. Thankfully your competitor on the digital media front still has a user friendly app. Simply terrible.
