Not bad

Apps can be a pain setting up but this one didn’t seem too bad. Layout seems good; fairly intuitive. Seems responsive. Ads seem about right for a free app.

Geez, really?

Can’t even put my email address in to get started on the new and supposedly improved app. I guess I’ll watch the other news apps instead. And now they want money to stop the dumb ads.
Ok, when in dark mode, we can’t see the words for email or password. Also couldn’t see words for the updates if you wanted them or not. Once I got out of the dark mode in my iPad settings, I could see everything. They need to fix this.

Horrible Update

Back when it was the Fox 17 app you could use it to, oh, I don’t know , read the news. But now the pages don’t load half the time and even worse - the live video / news simulcasts are always predicated by the same 30 second long ad, and you have a 75% chance of the video or audio not working - and if you restart to fix that, another same 30 second ad!

Just a crappy job all around.
