I had an older version for the longest time which was neat and clean to use. Was my go-to news app when the other two stations tried to get too fancy.
Recently there is now an annoying pop-up ad after every time I read one news article. This week it is Cathedral High School. It is so bothersome and frequent I am changing news apps and will never donate to or support Cathedral HS.
Breaking news has never worked. I get news alerts all the time and go to the app to get more detail - nothing is there. Someone is sleeping on the job. And now with WISH only being local news they should be on top of things. Goodbye WISH news app. It was nice knowing you.
This app isn't worth pressing the download button. The app is very limited In navigation or search. Many news stories are nowhere to be seen. Just several days ago a body was discovered within two blocks of my job, out of concern I thought I should find out any info or resolution. Can't find it.
More so it's just flat and uninformative
