Still Terrible

(Terrible after a further update. Navigation remains slow, 75-90% of the content is ads, it's difficult to scroll through, still bloated and not useful. Crashes less often, but freezes frequently. App Support is absent--the link above goes to their mobile content site. Apple should reconsider whether this app meets their standards. The below still applies.)

This used to be a pretty nice app. Now it's bloated with controls and clunky navigation and ads everywhere--so many it's hard to read the news.

Text in articles can be tiny, no reader view either. Buttons are small enough that slight variations can load a different page or ad.

Also freezes and crashes. Too bad I can't give a zero--some apps should be discontinued by Apple if they work this poorly. Note: it uses a disk cache in settings, presumably to store some of its bulk so it can load faster.

TU wants subscribers, but this app makes me not want to read the TU at all. If Plus works through the app, the paid experience won't be any better.

Clunky and lacks functionality, accessibility

This app behaves more like a mobile website than an app. It looks sleek but functionality and accessibility leave much to be desired. Articles have no preview so you have to decide whether to click based on headlines that aren't descriptive enough. Load time on articles is very slow as well, even on high speed wi-fi. The old app was ancient but at least it worked.

Go Elsewhere for your Local News

I used to me a multi-time a day user of this app. Since the update, I rarely use it. Ads clog the screen, prompts and links don't work, and information is disorganized. For a news app, there are way too many ads and promoted stories, while are really ads disguised as news stories. My recommendation- go elsewhere for your local news. for iPhone
