Too many notifications

Nice news source but no way to limit the amount of notifications sent. I don’t need half a dozen updates on a breaking story especially when no new info is being added. Doesn’t allow mobile watching of news programs or weather. Weather is forecast only.
Wish they were more objective in reporting.

Low quality news source

I’ve had the app for about a year and tried to give it a chance. Most of my news comes from national sources, but I want to have a local source to offer updates on smaller scale news.

Stories change infrequently on this app. We’re still seeing in late October the exact same stories about high profile murder that happened in mid-August, with no updates. Before that it was the exact same report of accusations against the city manager, without any new news for weeks.

Writing quality is quite poor, as well. Today I looked for an update on yesterday’s storms and saw an article about damage “across Missouri,” per the headline. Turns out it was a short mention of one location, an out-of-context paragraph describing leafless tree limbs and a structure in its side, and a statement that crews had no information to offer about the damage. I’m still wondering about the impact of yesterday’s storms across the state, or even in the region.

I’ll be getting my local news elsewhere and deleting this app.

Does great job for breaking news notifications

Great for getting notified for local breaking news. Doesn't overdo it like some news apps do, doesn't send notifications for less important things.

Don't really use it much otherwise but I'm sure that it's fine if you want to read local stories too.

It does frequently ask me to write an app review, so I'm hoping this will stop those. If not, I might knock it down a star.
