Great App!

I absolutely love the app, I have never had any issues with the app. It is wonderful to get the news updates and always know what is going on in the Tampa Bay Area. I love the weather notifications that I receive. I travel a lot and no matter where I am in the U.S., I always know what the weather is at home, lightning strikes, rain, etc. Great job!

Crashes every time on my iPhone XS

The latest updates to this app are terrible. Why do people INSIST on messing up a good thing. BRING BACK THE SWIPE LEFT-RIGHT. It was so good. The new format of up-down scrolling is awful. Plus way too many ads. But these aren’t the worst things about it. Basically, you can’t even use the app. It constantly crashes on my iPhone XS. I open the app, then have to close an advertisement they shove down your throat, of course. Then, finally get to an article and start to read it, then the app crashes and goes back to my iPhone XS desktop. This inconsistency started about a month ago. I have used this app for years with no problem. They obviously messed with something they shouldn’t have messed with.

This app has a very high rating only because it was so good for so long that it gathered up a lot of 5 stars. But this high, average long-term rating is not representative of what people think of it now. You have to read the recent reviews.

Road to Memories

I enjoy reading news from all the Tampa area, I had family in that area for 47 years. Although they are not with me any longer I still have wonderful memories of my times there, almost like my second home. Your app is a way for me to be there in a way. Even though the news is not always great I find good news items. Thanks for allowing me to "return" to old places, new changes, beautiful pictures and special memories. PW
