Less adds, but notifications fwd to website not app.

Ever since the website re-work it has had a ridiculous number of adds. This pushed me to the app which has a more reasonable number and provides for a better reading experience.

That said, for some reason the app notifications send me to the story on the website rather that the story on the app. This is annoying and anti intuitive. I expect and world prefer to read the story in the app. That is the point of the app after all right?

“Can’t connect.”

Coronavirus is in its early stages here do I want to be able to our local news from somewhere other than the tv. I JUST signed up for the 6 month digital subscription special and was led to this app “for subscribers only.” I now understand why this app has HORRIBLE reviews. The only “section” that displays something other than “Can’t connect” is the obituary tab. My wireless service is not the issue here. And, yes - it did allow me to log in and showed it was indeed my account. This is the quickest I’ve downloaded and then deleted an app. Absolutely USELESS.
