App works ok but notifications are messed up

I like the app for getting notifications of breaking news. However, I am close to deleting the app because I keep getting notifications of news stories that are of no interest to me and are certainly not "breaking" news. I couldn't care less who's playing in a football game! When I get so many dumb notifications, I don't pay attention when I get ones I might care about. Either change the setting options so users can choose which kind of "breaking" news they get notifications for, or stop classifying sports as breaking news. Users should get to choose if they want notifications regarding things like sports, political, world news, local news only, celebrity news, religious etc.

Updates are great

I originally rated this app poorly because the pop up ads seemed to interrupt reading randomly, usually mid-sentence. I downloaded and tried it again, though, and noticed that now the ads either appear at the bottom or pop up between news articles. This is a welcome change. Thanks to the developers for addressing the reading interruptions. I look forward to using this app to keep up with the news.

Do your own reporting

It would be nice if East Idaho News could do their own reporting instead of just regurgitating news stories from national news sources that do not represent Idaho values.
