Prior Version was Better

The prior version had a much better interface. It had more and better choices of articles and used space more efficiently. Sure, it was a little clunky, but now, there is so little information, and so much wasted space. I'd love to be a part of a testing, feedback, or focus group for future releases.

Hot mess

This app is such a mess. Ads pop up and the swipe up to dismiss is almost the same gesture as closing the app on iPhone, so 9 times out of 10 I accidentally close it. Video ads start running immediately so you can’t just read the article and see the picture related to the article (today it was a girl doing bridge pose instead of the suspect police are asking public to look for). Articles lack punctuation, spelling and capitalization errors are everywhere. It’s fine for just seeing the notification blurbs that come up, but don’t bother clicking them, it’s all downhill from there.

Again With the Noisy Interruptions

Below is the review I wrote a while back. Deleted the app. They fixed that idiocy, but now in the middle of reading a story a commercial’s soundtrack started playing and could not be quickly stopped. Deleted the app again

The news this app provides is not bad, but EVERY time you open the app it shows an ad which must be closed before the app can be used, and EVERY time you change pages the same (shrill) video of a KOIN spokesmodel encouraging water conservation plays. Every page change? Really? This is a very poor user experience
