Love it

Best app around between the other media. I love to see local breaking news notifications days before the papers publish them.

Good App

Good App. Nicer to use then the website with all the ads.

Non-considerate “news” company is a news company just like all the rest. They have lost their desire to be a informational platform. Instead they will publish anything to get clicks and make a quick buck.

Instead of being a new company meant to help the community, they would rather publish stories of accidents with photos and no content. has forgotten that people pilot vehicles. When an an accident happens people are affected to vehicles. Maybe hold back on making a quick buck and instead provide information that helps the community It’s not just all about the clicks.
