Ratings and ReviewsSee All
This app at one point was good. Now it’s just plain dreadful. You’ll have stories in Latest News and then you'll repeat the same article in the Local News, and if the story makes National News you’ll repeat the whole story again. There’s no reason to repeat the story more then once.
Another thing when you click on the article to read, it’ll load and the size is super small no matter what you have the settings set at under Look & Feel size. I’ll give it another month or so.
Fixes just change what is broken!
The programmers did a fix sometime back that required a somewhat long press to open a category. Too long, and the press did not work. Too short, and the press did not work. It took some time, but it was possible to learn how long to press.
OK, so they fixed that one, but you could not go back to the story list. The back feature took you back to the category list, and you had to scroll through the stories to find where you were to select the next story you wanted to read.
OK, this fix restores the capability to go back to the story list, which is now blank, until you attempt to scroll that list, at which time, you are taken back to the top of the list, once again having to scroll through the stories to find where you were.
This fix is no fix.
Through the myriad of these errors (and others) I have not commented. However, this parade of bugs tells me that the authors are not bothering to test their software before foisting it on us.
(Note: This comment is from someone who used to write software for a living.)
Crashes far too frequently
This app is pretty terrible to be honest(except in the seldom instances that it does want to work properly), if I wanna check the app for local news? Crash. If I just get a notification for a news story and wanna check it immediately? Crash. Ceased reading up on news for a quick second to multitask another app but plan to return? Crash. Crash. I’m crashing! I’m crashing! Good lord they really need to adjust the amount of bugs in this app. Due to these minor mishaps that can easily be fixed it causes the app as a whole to be virtually unusable. I’m better off just watching my local news on television than trying to make sense of this apps complete incompetence.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
