Missing the previous version

The previous version of this app was my only internet based news source. I would check it multiple times daily and enjoyed the notifications that periodically popped on screen. Now I find most of the news stories are kept on the app for days and aside from local and political news, there is very little to choose from. Of the current version, I do like that all available stories are displayed in a list. The previous version displayed a list of 11 stories and the remaining 19 had to be swiped one from another to be assessed. I hope they keep most of the new format but get back the previous content.

Wow, done with this app. First it was adds popping up with every page, now it crashes when you try and open the weather! Doesn't anyone who works there try their own stuff to make sure it works? Pure junk, plus, stop publishing CNN opinion stories as if they are real news.

Update: well, it was good for awhile. When it was updated, I tried again. It was working for for me to get my news, now back to political hit pieces via cnn. Can’t we just have news? Who cares what the First Lady wears? And how she is awful at choosing outfits compared to last First Lady? Come on, just news please. If I wanted cnn I would just download their app. Be creative and focus on Bend, and just report what happens. Come together and stand out as a news source that unites instead of choosing sides with obvious bias from those who work at z21. Its deleted from my platform once more. I hope that some one is reading and can be an adult who is ok with listing and learning from all people, not those who just agree with the beat of the cnn drum.

Too much video

This is my local news app but since the last release most of the mainline news stories are actually video segment underneath a headline. Unfortunately there is rarely and indicator from main news feed that content is video based. If you like to read/scan news this is not the app for you.
