Newest articles should be first

Update: Now when I open the news app when I first wake up, I am startled by a loud ad! Why loud ads when opening the app!!?? I READ the news QUIETLY in bed in the morning & at night so as not to wake my sleeping dear. Is there a paid app available WITHOUT ADS?

I hate having to scroll through yesterday’s news to find the newest articles!!! Why aren’t the newest articles posted first, on top of the old, then let the oldest articles fall off the bottom after a certain time? This morning, I had to scroll past 12 old articles from yesterday to find 5 current articles posted this morning. The newest should be first so that once I get down to the older articles from yesterday I can stop scrolling. Finding this morning’s news shouldn’t be a treasure hunt. I’m growing weary of trying use this app for local news...

Annoying App Well Behind The Curve

I use this app to check the weather and local news stories. It's good for reading any story in BCS. But don't be looking to watch videos because it's one of the most frustrating experiences ever. Halfway through the annoying ad to watch the morning weather video and you tilt you phone to watch wide screen (like all other apps) and the whole app reloads, and you have to start the same ad over again! Overall it's a buggy app that needs some attention. Compared to other news/weather apps this one is behind the curve!
