Needs another update!

This was once the best local news app. Not sure what you did but now there’s constant problems. You brought back the back button but it still goes back to the top and you need to scroll to where you were. And now it crashes continually. I guess I need to use the other local news apps.

Once the best, now a joke

For years, this used to be my favorite news app. Good local news, and national news push notifications that sometimes came before national news apps. Now every notification is vague clickbait trying to get you to open it and make their daily active user stats better. If nothing changes I will soon delete this app for a conpetitor. I am very frustrated with this app’s push notification quality and now firmly do not recommend it.

Video is no longer full screen

I mainly use this app to watch the morning live news feed. After the latest update the video is no longer full screen on my iPad. Plus, I can longer minimize the app and keep the small floating video. Despite a few nuances, this app used to be a great way for me to catch the news when I wasn’t near my tv.
