Do not like new app.

Please change back to old format.

I do not like having to listen to an advertisement. I would just prefer to read the article.

The advertisements are too loud. Is there a way the volume can be cut back. I prefer it not be any louder than what my volume is set at on my phone.

App functions well but strong liberal bias and more opinion than fact presented in articles

I use this app for a quick view of local news and the app itself functions better than most of the other local news station, which is the reason for 2 stars instead of one. However the obvious liberal bias presented as fact makes it difficult for me to even read the articles. Additionally when I have emailed pointing out inconsistencies in their reporting and asking for the other side to be presented, I have been completely ignored. As the American public, we have allowed news stations to spin factual news and subtly influence at least two generations. Our family is educating our children to notice these biases. I strongly urge everyone who watches and reads the news to be on high alert to how these writers, reporters, and editors are many times not presenting fact but opinion.

Generally great.

Wish traffic info was available. Ads jump over the night time silence and wake up my husband. Don’t mind the ads and usually look at them unless there is sound at night. Then I have to skin the whole story. I do like the weather and radar being available first. When I want weather fast I come here. And I like the more local news separate from the national. Apparently I’ve done the survey before as it won’t accept any of my four usual nicknames. Well, it just rejected 2manynicknames.
