ADS/SPAM DISGUISED AS NEWS IS ANNOYING

As a cord cutter, I rarely watch live TV anymore and rely on apps like these for my local news. What bothers me is the placement of all of the ads on each page that are made to look like news articles. What is worse is that most are straight-up dishonest, spam or inappropriate. For example, one ad said “New Affordable Housing in Midland is Turning Heads”. You click on it and not only does it have nothing to do with Midland, it had even less to do with affordable housing. It was a spam link page that took you to other spam link pages. Most ads have scantly clad women or other non-family friendly content. I think the ad provider is “Outbrain”. Consider real local ads that matter to us and not just spammy crap that makes y’all look like you fell for a Nigerian Phone scam from a shady developer that just threw your RSS feed in a spam bot template. PLEASE, use your own app and PLEASE be honest and recognize that the crap ads and spam on each page do not represent your news station in a positive light. I would be embarrassed.

Notification settings don't work

I like this app, however, I am very close to deleting due to UNWANTED notifications. My settings for "notifications" are set to receive "Breaking News" and "Weather Alerts" ONLY, but I am still getting "Happening Today" notifications. I require VITAL information ONLY, not the annoyance of looking at my watch only to see a "Happening Today" notice. So what's up with giving the illusion of allowing personalized configuration of notification preferences????

My perspective

I actually like your app. It is simple and direct. I do at times find the story may have been posted without using a tool for spellcheck etc., to find mistakes. The biggest frustration I see is your lack of ability for comments to be posted about a story, Your agency is timely with stories and events, but you fail at engaging in the feedback of your community. Please consider adding this option.

4 Stars, only due to the lack of comments available and grammar is atrocious.
