The app is just ok. Too often, I get a push notification about a breaking news story, and when I tap on it, the story isn't there yet.
But more often - and the thing that bothers me most about this app - I get notifications for "breaking news" stories that are NOT breaking. They're barely news.
Suggestion: give people options re: push notifications and let them choose whether they want breaking news, sports news, etc. I only want actual breaking news. I don't need a notification when the Steelers win or lose. (besides, what self-respecting Pittsburgher isn't watching the game anyway??)
Waaaay too many LONG ads, weather and news is not updated frequently enough, the alerts go out before they have the whole story. Some of the alerts are unimportant in my view. They take away the print version so you have to watch the video and therefore the ads. I understand ads are how you make your money but this is ridiculously excessive. Very controlling. Let us always have the option to skip the video and just read the transcript . I just downloaded KDKA's app so I'll see if it's any better.
Using the app on my iPhone when I see the announcement I can't always look right away. When I open the app I expect to be able to find the article that had been announced. Apparently the announcement comes through on the iPhone before it ends up on the home page of the app, and unless I use the announcement to open the app, often times I can't find things on the app.
