Gave it 5 stars until latest update.

I loved this app until a few days ago, when it was updated. Now, the Share feature seems to have utterly disappeared. Some of us use Share to add an article to Notes, so we can return to it; other times, we just want to share something with friends. Now, we can’t seem to do either. Also, when I tried to access App Support, the app opened to the article I had just read, instead of taking me to App Support. That’s why I’m writing a review. I haven’t tried reinstalling the app yet, as I’m still catching up on two days’ worth of notifications. Once that is done, I’ll try reinstalling. If that works, I’ll update this review. Update: I reinstalled the app, and “Share” still doesn’t appear in the articles. Bummer! Also, App Support still sends me to whatever I just read. Another bummer! App updated again; now Newsfeed nearly inaccessible, as images seem to hide titles of articles. Share is supposedly back; but, if you bring an article up, Share disappears again. App wasn’t broken two weeks ago, but the “fixes” since then _have broken it. If you don’t need to Share something or access Newsfeed, it’s still great!

Fast forward several years. For the record, I am running the latest iOS on my iPhone. The “Share” function worked, as did “Watch”, and all of the other features for most of this time. The app was much better until a few days ago, and now we have the same situation that faced another reviewer about six years ago: namely, when I open a notification from ABC3340, I am now taken to the website rather than to the app; and, if I hit “Return to ABC3340” on the status bar, I have to scroll through a long list of articles until I hopefully find the one that was the subject of the notification. In other words, while I thankfully receive notifications for the app, I am no longer taken to the article when I open the notification. Please fix! The app wasn’t broken until after the most recent update. As for trying to get app support:that situation is unchanged. If on the info page for the app in App Store, you click App Support, and are taken to anything but app support.

New Updated App

I do not like it. It is much harder to use. The previous one was much easier. I do not have tv in my house so I relied on watching news cast on my phone and I have not been able to watch a newscast since it was updated

It’s alright

I got this app mostly for the live weather broadcast when we have bad storms. I wish I could customize the notifications I receive. It seems like I am getting a notification every 30 minutes and it’s excessive. Probably 90% of the notifications I couldn’t care less about. The interface is also clunky and sometimes difficult to navigate
