What's New in Version 4.3.2
New Advertisements Make This App Worthless
I have used this app for almost a year now. The older version of this app was user friendly with easy navigation. Advertisements have always been embedded between articles, which is fine, I understand they do generate money. However, for some reason WDBJ7 has decided a more barbaric form of advertising was needed. The new advertisements will hostilely take over your screen while just scrolling through an article or clicking on another. Again, I understand advertisements are needed for funding, which is why I wouldn't mind one or two pop-up's, however these advertisements force themselves on your screen in a steady stream. In just one article I've had to deal with three advertisements popping up. Furthermore, once the advertisement has taken over closing out of it requires the most steady of hands because the "X" to close it is miniature. One wrong touch of your finger and you're taken to a website, a further waste of time. These abominations have absolutely destroyed the usefulness of this app. Until WDBJ7 has fixed this problem I would not recommend getting this app unless you enjoy advertisements assaulting you with useless, neon-colored deals every few minutes.
Ads after 7/14 updates
I use to love this app, until I updated it today 7/14.
After I did the update I kept getting ads. Every story I try to read a ad pop-up, switch to another story and another ad.
I got tired of trying to read the stories without ads, so I deleted it.
I go through Google now to read the stories on channel 7 news.
Wbdj7 does a wonderful job getting out news an weather
I really en joy this station an the way they execute and stay on top of the weather sports an news I rate 5 star keep the good work Russell Boones mill
