Ratings and Reviews
Notification links rarely work
Technically the app works far better then it did ever did. Crashes, freezes and refusing to open all appear to have been fixed over the years.
I don’t open the app unless I get a Notification of a story that may interest me. If you don’t open the link soon after it arrives the app opens to another story after an annoying ad. Then you have to search around and see if you can find a link. It’s really not worth the effort as it’s the same stories you can find in the Patch or Newsday.
Thumbs down for new “pushed” ads
I use the news 12 app each morning with my coffee to get my news however recent”updates” now having ads auto open 10-20 seconds I to trying to read an artiste working my last nerve. I understand the premium s reason for such advertising but if I’m interested in the ad, I will click on it. It doesn’t need to auto open and be shoved in my face. What you get instead when this happen is a frustrated and annoyed viewer who starts to think of where else she may get her AM news where this doesn’t happen. Seriously consider disabling this obnoxious new feature.
Love the app, am hoping for iPhone X support.
Love the app, have been using it for a long time, and I especially appreciate today’s newest app update. Am hoping at this point that the developers add support for the new iPhone X, so that the app fills the screen entirely (I’ll email the developers and ask them if they can add this enhancement). Otherwise, it’s a great app and it keeps me updated on important events going on in the area 😊
