First turn to MSP News

The story last Sunday about the troubled Motor Vehicle license registration program was detailed and eyeopening.
Keep up the good work.
Darryl Schaumburg St Paul, Mn
Your story on MN childcare fraud, was right on and embarrassing to State officials. Guv Dayton had 1 staff person devoted to looking for anti Muslim stuff in the media. They thought your story could be damaging to emerging DFL influence in the Muslim community. The IG who was suspended was active in slowing down “bad” info that was perceived as helping your accounts. Nobles refused to be muzzled but still toned down his report DS/STP

Why is app suddenly freezing?

I have used your Fox 9 news app for years without issue. The last couple of weeks when I touch the icon, I get a blue screen with a spinning circle, and no matter how long I wait, it never connects. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app a half dozen times. When I do, it will always connect immediately after reinstalling, and sometimes for a time or two after, but then it will sit and spin again. I have no other apps that do this, including your weather app which still works great. This problem has become annoying so I am uninstalling the app indefinitely and will get my news elsewhere. Perhaps I’ll reinstall it again in a month or two and see if anything has been changed/fixed.

Live video server error

I downloaded this to mainly watch the news live. The thing is when I tap on the video to watch the news the app gives me a message about there being a server error then it exits.

Note that I can still go to the fox 9 website and watch the video there and it worked fine but the reason I got this app is so it would be easier to access.

Not sure why stuff just can't work like it's supposed to. Not sure if app developers just want you to download their apps versus using the web so they can harvest your personal info from your device and force feed you ads.
