What's New in Version 5.7.55
Picture-in-picture is back on iPad. Thanks for being patient while we fixed that up for you.
We also improved overall app performance. Keep that feedback coming to email@example.com
I have been using this app for a while, and it does offer timely news items when I want them. But, the "time consumption price of use" seems high:
(1) it seems every video is preceded by a 30 second ad. EVERY. VIDEO. This is extraordinarily painful, and I always watch the one video I want, then leave because one ad is enough. (There is never a "skip ad" option - one must endure, and often it's the same ad, over and over again.)
(2) The most frequent alerts are car accidents in southern Maine, and I find that interruptive for no reason - I turned that feature off in a hurry.
(3) MAINE is not a news-generating state, so they fill the app with what I call junk videos (still with the 30 sec ads).
So, it's only OK.
Awesome! My go to app for local news and weather!
