I watch the 11AM news on this app because my home state is Minnesota (Twin Cities Area) and I’m out of state frequently. It is the best Twin City news app I’ve tried but I have just a few problems with it. If you try to stream, you must immediately expand the window after you touch the arrow to play otherwise it won’t expand to the full screen even after 10 seconds. The other issue is it sometimes stops during the news cast and you have to go trough the starting process all over again. Other than these issues, I love it!
Well, the malicious banner ad pop ups stopped. So that is good. And I guess at least adding the little “ad” logo on the ads makes it better, even if every ad is still clickbait crap. I know ads pay for the app, but I still hate seeing a “news” app littered with misleading clickbait links every couple of stories.
“Related stories” is totally broken. Not sure how stories about Trump/Omar or other politics are “related” to a car crash. Seems “related” means “political stories to rile you up”.
Besides that, and more of a general thing than just the app, please hire writers that can use proper grammar and please hire real editors. The number of paragraphs cut off short, typos and examples of poor writing is embarrassing for a “news” outlet. Don’t worry, Kare 11 is just as bad. Makes me ignore half the local news. Being first out with stories should not come before being accurate and actually proof reading the content.
Ratings for new format
Do not like the new format. It is really difficult to track the current, up to date weather. It keeps old information so you think your looking at current until you look more closely & then realize it’s hours sometimes days old. The watch & warnings are the same way. Very very disappointed. I’m keeping this app but I’m going to try other local stations app.🙁
