Flashing "You've Won!!!!!" adds
Update: Over-the-top advertising finally won out. App permanently deleted.
Flashing "You've Won!!!!!" adds greatly take away from what has been up to now my go-to app for news. Not anymore. I believe the quality of an organization, or news network, can be very much judged by the quality of allowed advertising. This Web site is going downhill very quickly. Let's hope management wakes up and realizes the need to retain quality in both news and advertising content.
I absolutely loved this app when it first came out. Now it's annoying because everytime you watch a video you have to watch a ad and the app crashes and u gotta watch the same ad again for every single video. Ad's need to be removed completely. The links does not always work. The picture posting are not always selectable.
Be ready to get annoyed!!!
I love the app! I love that I am up to date! Here's what I absolutely hate you can't set a time for when to send an alert. I mean I get alerts at 3 am in the morning sometimes! Today I got one at 6am! If there's a way to set a function so I'm not alerted between a certain time frame that would be great....because the alert woke me up this morning I only give it two stars! FYI the alerts aren't even an emergency 9 out of the 10 times!
