App layout needs to rotate

I would be great if the app layout rotated when a tablet was being used in landscape mode.

Update: if I could write a fair review, this app would be in negative numbers by now. All day it’s sent me election update notices and when I click on them the app opens to a page that shows a play arrow and says “we’ll be right back” OR it just sits there showing the play button. Worse than useless because you could forget it, but it bugs you with notifications and then won’t play what you clicked.

hate this app. You get an alert, that you want to read, yet when you click on it you just land on their "front page." What you clicked on is almost never included in the stories that are there. SOMETIMES, you can search and find the story, but most often, it's just not there. I end up googling it and reading it on another local news agency's site.

Needs a lot of improvement!! Notifications bring you to a entirely different story at times. Once your in a specific article the back button/ arrow is an absolute nuances to engage back into the main page, make it bigger so we don’t have to tap it a hundred times!!! Whoever writes the reports into the app should definitely use spell check and editing before sending it off. Just makes your organization look bad with misspellings, especially for a news organization!! Don’t fire anyone, just fix it!!
