Great app that just needs a few minor tweaks

I'm really enjoying the Knox News app. A few suggested improvements include fewer ads (since I am a paying subscriber), fewer "subscribe" links in articles for those who already subscribe, and using the swipe gesture to return to the previous screen after opening a 'deep link' or other popup. Great content though!

Opting out of tracking and targeted ads

Is not available to be changed anywhere within the app.

I went to the website and was greeted with a huge mess. Go to this website to do this. Download the app choices app… Go to opt-out tool… blah blah. Ridiculous. This is clearly done to make it so people cannot easily say NO.

Do the right thing. Please. Allow us to block ads and targeting. Otherwise, I’ll be a subscriber and reader you lose. More importantly, Southerners value their space and privacy. You violate that by not allowing us to opt out in the app and on the news website.

Knox News

I love the local news and updates locally. I don't like the way you omit some political parties and their opinions. I do check the obituaries every day and Usually work the number puzzle.
