The best local news app for the central coast, but...

There are only two local news apps for the Monterey-Salinas market, and only one worth the download. This is the one. My only complaint is that even though weather data is supplied by Weather Underground, it does not let you select a local weather station from the large community of weather providers in local neighborhoods, only major stations like airports and civic centers. Add that functionality and this app will deserve five stars.

This App Should be Removed

The past few weeks all of the breaking news has been driving a lot of people to news apps. This is one I had for my local news and recently they have turned up their in app ads. Until 2-3 days ago. The ads were not only aggressive but they were straight up phishing. Like a webpage that looked like google (using their marks) but was just trying to get people information.

This is completely unacceptable for a reputable news source. Apple needs to remove this application until any and all predatory advertising is removed for good.
