Annoying constant sports updates

I wish there was a way to turn off JUST notifications for sports news. The constant frequency of sports notifications is so annoying. I like getting updates for breaking news—international, national and local, but I don’t consider every single Badger or Packer Bit of Gossip worthy of having my phone ding me many times a day. But if I turn off notifications, I won’t hear of the important happenings near Madison or in Wisconsin. Dilemma.

Login and remove ads is priceless

The ability to login and remove ads is huge and wonderful. For those who complain about video ads, get a digital subscription, and you won't have to deal with them. No ads at all!

Can’t find search function

I’m a paying subscriber to the print version of the paper and like to check the digital one sometimes for convenience. I recently noticed that the app doesn’t show a search function, which seems like a serious omission for a news app. I did report it to their dev team and got a nice response, so it should be addressed.
