App not working properly after update

I updated the app a few days ago, and now, when I click on a headline in my notifications, the story doesn’t open in the app. It just goes to the main newsfeed page. Then, when I try to open a story on the newsfeed page, it doesn’t always open, just kind of buffers, and I have to close and open again. This is very inconvenient and frustrating. This is my go-to news app and I never had this problem before. Please fix ASAP!

No news, just noise

I’ve had this app for a while attempting to stay current with local news. But the app consistently fails at accomplishing that. Periodically, the app will generate an alert about something happening in the region. But if you click the alert to open the app and read more, there isn’t more to read. The article will claim it is a “developing story” (or similar) and provide no more info than was contained in the alert. I think they are just trying to get their advertisements in front of more eyes.

When I have used the app to read local news, articles are very shallow in content and “reporters” rarely ask questions that should be answered. Rather, they talk a little bit about what is happening, but never seek or provide substance.

Apparently this “news” group is all about selling ads and fitting coverage into their on-air schedule with far less attention being spent on actually getting information to the region they cover.

I’ll keep the app on my device so that I get alerts about what is happening locally, but for details about those alerts, you’ll need a different source (and app).

Love the local new but the app needs work.

I enjoy reading the local news articles that app displays, but the poor scrolling makes my want to close the app instantly.
