Please create a sports app
The news updates are fine but I hate the sports updates, polls and notifications. I’ve tried to turn them off but they keep coming. UGH
Updating previous review
This app is actually terrible. Aside from not being able to disable the sports notifications, the sequence of news is awful. When trying to find news that’s not considered a “top story,” it’s nearly impossible. For example, when news broke about a missing child, the entire Top Stories page was full of repeat articles and information with no real updates and there was no way to pull the news about other important things happening in the area simultaneously (shootings, accidents, school lockdowns). I love watching Actions News Jax on TV, but this news app is a poor attempt at keeping the public up to date on local news. It would be nice if a search bar were integrated into the app. Additionally, grammatical errors and typos are extremely common in their articles. The design of the app is also very choppy. Major updating is needed.
I turned on Apple TV this morning and was surprised to see the difference with the action news Jax app. Way easier on the eyes. The options on the screen are easier to navigate and it just looks more clean. I like being able to watch the news while scanning through any news stories that I may want to get to, now. Great job, guys!
