What’s New

Version 41.5.0

The news is important; that's why we work to make it easier to access in our app.

-This latest build brings you larger, more legible text on articles and a design change to our video player that makes the mute and closed caption icons easier to tap.

-Videos from the top of our article pages will shrink down and stick to the top of the screen as you pass them so you can keep an eye on the visual part of the story while you scan the page. Prefer to focus on the text? Just swipe the video up and away to close.

-Just some backend performance work this time around to make sure your experience stays smooth.

We've also fixed a handful of bugs.

Poor navigability

Of all the apps I have downloaded, this one is the hardest to navigate. If you initiate a “notification”, it is almost impossible to locate the story. You have hidden the story somewhere deep inside of endless channels of the app. For example, your notification says “Click” to see Coach Saban give his weekly news conference. When you click, it takes to a screen with advertisements, then two options, News or Live. Click Live, and you get a blank screen, Click News, and you get this endless web of titled options that goes in different directions, none of which is the story you initially started to look for.
All other local news apps, have easily navigable News Apps. When you get a Notification about news happening or story, you can click on the Notification, and it immediately takes you to the story, or video, or live stream. Why can’t yours do the same thing? In this day of incredible technology, endless Web services, and fierce competition, it just seems to me, you of all people should be a leader in them News and Entertainment Apps. Yet, you are dead last in the App category.
Good luck with that!
