The app seems to focus on certain types of news and doesn’t show a broad spectrum across the Columbia area. Also, I don’t like the fact that you can’t filter what notifications you would like. My phone is constantly notifying me of every little thing from puppies being born to major weather alerts. The weather alerts I want...the puppies, not so much. You don’t want to turn them off because you might miss something that’s actually important. I tried to reach out via feedback to the developers a week or so before leaving a review, but I found that they don’t respond or even acknowledge receipt of feedback. I just moved here so I hope I can find another news app. I do not recommend this one unless you constantly want notifications.

Like but......


Editing is awful. Recently, there was one story that the headline was the exact opposite of the story. Misspelled words, incorrect grammar, sentences that don't make sense, and other errors. My Junior High School paper had better editing. Sometimes when news is slow a really trivial story pops up and I would just rather not be notified.

Just for the record, when you are talking about you and somebody else, correct grammar is ------ and me or I. Not me and ------- a number of newscasters have this problem and how can children be expected to use good grammar when newscasters don't.

Good, Informative news app


Notifications are a little frequent, but clear and concise. It tells you The Who, what when, and where of incidents both national & local. I would have to agree that new alerts seem to be on the negative side - violence, criminal activity, etc. if you put on a do not disturb, will the alerts not during those times? Sometimes we need a break.
