The app works every time—no glitches. No annoying pop-up ads (just one, bottom screen, and it's local! not for candy crush, etc...). Runs very smooth... full articles... Super organized and user-friendly. Plus, articles stay up for a while. So, if you missed yesterday's headline, you can scroll around and usually still find it posted. Great job, OA!

Opening App Store

I can’t get through an article without a forced opening of the App Store to some junk app I wouldn’t install like CBS News or Yahoo Mail. I refuse to use apps that do or allow this. Especially when you already have ads on the bottom.

Violating the human privacy and health laws of Hippa !

I was written about in the newspaper and not in a flattering way a good more than 70% of it was incorrect and also do not ask for my permission to be publishing anything about my private personal health so with that I say I understand that sometimes there are public records but sometimes or not think about how much you want your health information publicized to the public for years on end I still have rights I am a human being regardless of being incarcerated or not it is stated innocent until proven guilty he and a bunch of that that was posted I was still innocent and been proven guilty at that moment and then of course the other charges were dismissed if in fact they were true why did the judge dismissed them so then they must not be true as for my health that is my vital record to have on and sign paperwork to allow it to be published and I didn't give consent to that as a violation of my rights as a citizen of the United States this is a form of me just been informed of this information of arbitration with Odessa American and their affiliates.
