Ads constantly interrupt
This is such an annoying app. I can call up a story, start reading, and suddenly someone starts talking in an ad. I have to read with no volume to avoid that. And then when I want to read the next story, I have to deal with another ad. Extremely frustrating. Not worth the effort.
If you want local Florida news forget this app. Only National Enquirer type stories reported here.
