Local News

I like seeing the local and national news on this app. I do have one thing that really bothers me though. I can be reading an article and it will just drop the end of the story. It happens ALL the time. That is frustrating. I’m glad I can stay up with what is going on in our area even though I may not see the end of the article.

Like the local news, hate the amount of 'fluff' content

I will preface that I understand the fluff lifestyle articles featured on this app (and the website) generates revenue for them. But for me, the format in which they feature these click bait pieces drives me crazy. Regular ads I can tolerate, but the "lifestyle" slide-show articles mixed within the local / proper news feels disorganized and tabloid-y. To be fair, this is not the only news app or website that populates non-news 'sponsored content' articles into it's proper news feed and, as mentioned earlier, I understand it's income and keeps the app free. But it's a format that increasingly 1) doesn't work for me, 2) tests my patience and 3) makes my visits to apps and websites like this very short.

Incomplete articles/sentences

For some unknown and annoying reasons, a sentence will stop midway especially if there is an advertisement you have to scroll past. Many times the whole final section(s) of the article will be cut off. It makes trying to read any news on this app frustrating. I no longer try 90% of the time and just read the headlines. The other 10% of the time, I try in hopes that they have finally read their own articles on the app and figured out this is an issue. But since I am writing this today - nope!
