Why would you take away accessibility

If there’s one thing I really liked about this app it was that I could highlight a paragraph or two of the article and I could choose from multiple options such as “copy”, “look up” and “speak” using my iPhone.
This allowed me to have the article read to me in a monotone voice while I worked on other things. The recent update however, took this accessibility option out. Why? It was one of the best functions of the entire app. I would appreciate if it was re-added in the next update And would certainly allow me to give us up at five.

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.

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.
