slow and too many ads


The app is horrible. There’s is a forced ad as soon as you open the app, and it stays for way to long. If you close out of the app and return immediately, you still have to sit through the ad and not see anything. Not only that, there’s also ads within the app. Choose one way to advertise, preferably ads within the app. The app is so obnoxious to use. You’re way better of using CBS6.

Won’t open properly


This app hasn’t worked since the latest iOS update. I’ve deleted and reloaded it a couple of times and it works once. After that, it shows the ad and then closes itself as soon as the news page shows. Very annoying!



App will no longer open with latest iPhone update. Has never been a decent app. Too many ads, a horrible lack of grammar from the writers, and it’s slow.
