What's New in Version 1.8.2475
Various bug fixes.
Ad popup and touch timing
I had been using the app for a while and liked it. But recently it has become more difficult to use. At startup the frame populates with the news and appears to complete, then allows article selection. I touch the article of interest but due the the delay in the AD presentation my touch target is not what I expect and it takes me to a different article - this includes the more button. I then go back and touch the article again to be sure to take great care with the touch timing in anticipation of an AD pop-up. I do this dance/game forward and backward until I get the article I want. It's becoming very difficult to use with a reasonable level of comfort - I now avoid using the app.
Have been using this app for approximately two years to read the news. That's about all it's good for. I agree with other reviewers re: the ads are very annoying. It news articles offer suggestions to click on links to look at other websites or videos, but the links are not available, so IMHO should not be included in the app article. The traffic interface is worthless.
Push notifications of local occurrences are awesome. Direct alerts of traffic problem areas, and hazards are extremely helpful. Had this app over a year and it is apart of my daily routine. I can also share on my social medias.👍👏
