We also improved overall app performance. Keep that feedback coming to email@example.com
I found it annoying that the display won't rotate, but I could live with that. The ads, however, make it essentially useless. Showing me the same ad every time I go to a new story does not incline me to buy that product. It so disrupts the experience that I give up and get the news and weather from other sources. Add to that all the ads embedded in the text, and the alert badges that don't lead to whatever the alert was about. I'll only use it in an emergency. Fortunately other media outlets aren't so greedy.
Among The Worst
First of all, ads, ads,ads! Not only that, but the same ad over and over again. Open a story...get an ad. Open another story...get the same ad! Ridiculous and boring! I make a point NOT to shop the advertisers. Also, in what I call the index the same headline is listed back to back. There is no additional info, just the same story! Apparently, no one proofreads anything. This is among the worst apps I've ever used! Must find another news source. Amateurs trying to be professionals.
I wish there was an audio only option to listening to the news. The video stream is too slow or takes up too much data and I'd like to just listen to the audio as I'm doing things around the house. Audio only option is availablewith many news shows.
