I like it but...

Local now is absolutely wonderful! I do have one suggestion, it would be really awesome if we could pick what slides is are favorites so next time we open the app we can get those slides instead of watching slides that we don’t care for! I do appreciate the time and effort you guys have been putting in this app! Keep it up!

Quick AM news bites

I love this app! I always put it on my fire stick while getting ready for work in the morning. I really enjoy that it provides local news based on my location, and that it gives you a mixed variety of news clips to help you get the day started. I would like to suggest a feature where we could choose which categories we would like the app to focus on. For example: I would love to see more national news and tech news, and less cooking clips. Hopefully there could be a feature that includes this. Maybe add a voting feature for each of the clips and have the app remember what type of news you like and learn from those clips to then show more of the same after some time. Overall the app is great and I highly recommend. I would definitely pay $1-3 per month to remove ads.

Great app....but...

Love the app, but it sometimes reboots constantly on my much so that at times its just not worth it and I turn it off. I know you have to get your ads in there, but when you put an ad in for a movie...which should really be in the show biz/entertainment section...and the ad is several minutes long plus the additional time for the rebooting, and the fact that you show this ad at the beginning of every section you have is super annoying and makes me want to turn it off.
I really wish it worked better, as I love watching this app on the rare occasions that it works right.
