Huge opening ad

This is much better than the previous version, but the ad that pops up over the whole screen immediately on opening is too much. Do you really need a 5 second ad in addition to all of the ads in there regular news feed? I will be deleting and reading local news from a different source. Latest version is a huge battery drain. Reading two stories makes by battery drop 20%.
Edit: the return of the ad on the splash screen has done it. I have deleted and switched to a different local news provider who still had plenty of ads in their app but are not nearly as intrusive.

Worst App I've Ever Used

Your "new" v3 version doesn't work on my older iPad. Used to, at least your old versions worked, not now. But those ads of yours still work in the app of course.

The newest version of the weather app hasn't worked on my iPad for some time but the news did. So much for using any of your lame apps. How a good station can have such lame apps is beyond me.

For those of you like me who dont have one of the newest iPads, the KOLR old version still works.

*** Update - After trying to download the new version again the app asked if I wanted to download the last compatible version and I did. It still initially would only show ads. After opening it and closing 3 or 4 times it *finally* started showing up with stories as before.

This is the worst app on my iPad and that I've ever used. Lucky for them KY3 is a decent station or I would never use it. I'd give it a zero if I could.

Forced into ad while monitoring tornado warning?

I was in the middle of reading a TORNADO WARNING for a neighboring county, and as I am reading what counties are going to be in the path of the storm, and trying to determine my family's risk of being caught in its path, an ad popped up, and took over my screen telling me that I had just won a $500 Walmart gift card, and it would not let me go back to the tornado warning. I had to quickly switch to a different weather source to finish reviewing the warning. Considering the nature of the storm, I am highly disappointed that this happened, and this is something that should be fixed quickly!
