New Ads Crash Phone & LOUD

I don’t know what kind of new update or advertising content has been used but I get MORE loud, sudden, unable to close ads on this app than any other one on my phone. Be it the “Congrats Google User” bogus, the “your phone has a virus” pop op, or a sudden video playing somewhere in the background that makes my phone freeze until I close the app completely.

Thousands of ways to get local news other than dealing with crappy apps. Your website is now more user friendly and convenient.

Smurfy time ,


New update?? I love Fox 8 for my news but this app it terrible. When I open a story I want to read I have to another button to open the story after I already opened the story. They call it continue reading but I just opened it. It is the most inconvenient thing and over half the time it’s the reason the app freezes and I can not open the story I wanted to read after opening the story I wanted to read. I was hoping with this new update the developers would have fixed the bugs and issues with the app but I can not see any changes. More features? Great. Fix the ones you have. If it’s too much data that is slowing or causing to freeze try to not repeat the same stories over and over. It would free up data and make the app run smoother.

Love it when it works

This app is my buddy when I am getting ready for work, but it is the most frustrating app ever. It is constantly stopping on its constantly have to keep hitting the play button. I counted at least 30 times one morning. It will also shut down on its own and of course you have to endure the commercials every time you start back up. If there was another Cleveland station I would watch, I would, just so I wouldn’t have to start my day so annoyed. Please fix this!!!!
