Ratings and Reviews
As described in other reviews, the interface isn’t nearly as slick and intuitive as it could be. But the big problem, in my view, is with push notifications. Just because you *can* send your users a news alert doesn’t mean you *should*. I appreciate the occasional alert related to a specific local traffic or weather event or to a significant breaking news story. But please don’t use push notifications to remind me to watch your impending newscast, or to tease some inane story, or to announce that Jeopardy is starting a half-hour early to accommodate special Olympics coverage. It’s obnoxious, and each extraneous alert brings me a little closer to deleting the app. Please exercise a little restraint.
Don't put more money in this. It can't be salvaged. Unorganized, can't find anything, just awful.
Ch 7 isn't perfect, but they have the idea. They just let you scroll through news titles, and you can cover a lot of news fast. THATS the goal. Speed. Even your television station is losing viewership because of taking too long to deliver stories, and mindless interviews no one cares about. "5 on 2" is a ridiculous idea."
Ch7 does one big thing wrong - they mix national stories into local stories and u don't realize you've clicked on Atlanta news til it's too late. Otherwise good app.
Simplify, feed news fast, and people will return. Even B Davis takes too long.
It's too busy and not as easy to find different departments. Also, in the weather section, I liked reading what the meteorologist had to say as they were informative about when the rain would arrive or when the cold front was coming through, etc. I found that to be helpful.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
