Good info

Nice to have the app

Not a fan of this app. The way the articles are arranged is very unattractive and annoying to navigate. Also, where is the search option to find a particular article in the app? Where is the ‘contact us’ option in the app? I would have just sent an email about this instead of leaving a public review but I couldn’t find a link in the app to do so. Seems like a ‘contact us’ option would also be a good idea to receive local news tips from the community....

Terribly written app

Local news content is fine but heads are cut off in pictures, almost impossible to read as the app Jumps around. This is also the only app I have ever used that after paying a subscription I continue to get pop up adds. Two stars is being generous. Please rewrite the software at least.
