Jim from St. Charles ,


Grew up in Michigan, MSU grad and big fan. My wife and I plan to retire in Michigan in a couple of years. Like MLive for the variety of stories they cover, there’s something for everyone.
Writing skill levels are inconsistent, but I understand how difficult it is to have editors read every single clip that is posted.
Comment section is great, now that the mute feature is there. Would like to get feedback on why comments might get flagged, especially if I send an email requesting that feedback. Just because another flags a comment doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with that comment. Some moderators are trigger happy and need guidelines.
Please link a screen name with an email address. Too many people stealing screen names and throwing out trashy comments acting as another. Needs to stop.

Overall, a great idea, good product. Wish Illinois had ILive.

Problems, problems

A generally good app; a nice collection of local stories that matter. There are two fairly glaring problems with the app, though: (1) the search function is broken and yields zero hits no matter what topic or thing you search for. (2) Lacks the ability to turn off or filter topics you would rather not clutter your news feed with. I don’t really pay much attention to sports, but this time of year (mid-December), almost all of the news on the home page is sports related; it would be nice to be able to turn off news on subjects or topics that don’t matter to the reader.

Video Ads Take Over my Phone

I can’t read the news and listen to music at the same time because your video ads pause my music every time I scroll past one (even though they’re muted by default). Go ahead and display your ads, but they shouldn’t be controlling my phone.

Also, most of the in-article links to other articles don’t display as a link in the iPhone app. They just look like regular text and it’s not clickable. So as I’m reading articles I’m constantly reading what look like odd short paragraphs that don’t make sense but they’re really links to other articles (that don’t work). It’s been like this months. Fix it or stop putting links in the middle of articles.
