It was fine before, but now…

I liked the app fine before, but now almost every story is a video. I don’t want a video, I want to read the story! If I wanted to watch a video, I would turn on the news.

Husker spam

I have this app because I want local news alerts. I mean, what else am I supposed to do? Buy a paper that comes out tomorrow morning? Actually sit in front of terrestrial television at a prescribed time? Use the competitors clone app (that curiously has the exact same notifications)? So, I'm stuck with this, although I do consider relegating local news to word of mouth again.

What's my problem? You couldn't pay me to care about Husker sports. It's fine if you really care, but I don't. Yet, probably two-thirds of channel 8's notifications are about Husker sports. Instead of the convenience of near real-time local news, I find myself constantly batting away every trivial thing that happens in Husker Nation.

Seriously, if you introduce a settings toggle to turn off the onslaught, I'll edit my review to five stars.

Not thinking like a user

I had to delete the app. I’m not waiting through a 30 second ad to read something that takes 20 seconds. And I hate that it constantly goes back to an old story before going to the story list after reading a story from notifications, sometimes before even going to the story I clicked in notifications! And the news is often written by someone who apparently knows less about it than I do, like they are just trying to come up with things they think people will click. Apparently the app is so bad that it won’t let you create a nickname, so you can’t post, if you’ve written a bad review.
