This so called “ Somerset “ Live app is unbelievably disappointing!! Embellished stories, irrelevant out of county news ,& a mind twisting amount of annoying Ads. Traffic news is it’s only redeeming feature.

Adverts app

Mostly adverts, some interesting story's with several adds breaking up paragraphs which degrades the overall quality of the app and the writers content.
Accept ads are needed to keep it free but its ads over content, driving the outcome that is a money maker not a serious news/information outlet
If you want local news would look for the local press rather than this ad lead app. Now deleted from my phone!

It’s not great…

There are a couple of things that bug me about this app:
1) the amount of ads in the content. Ok I get it that they have to receive revenue but sometimes between every rotten paragraph?
2) this annoys me the most. I receive a notification. I tap it. It opens the app and then opens Safari and shows me the story in Safari. Why bother with the app?

May delete it…
