Ratings and Reviews
What happened to the recorded live NEWS?
I used to love the ability to stream the news when it was convenient to my schedule. Even with the weird crashes and the fact that I’d have to start the app twice every time I watch on my kindle fire tv, I didn’t really care as long as I could get the news when I needed the news. Now if I don’t watch during a live news hour, all I get is streaming high school football information. I will be switching to one of the other network news apps for the greater Pittsburgh area. Was fun while it lasted.
Writing and print
There is always a news story that I want to read and when you open it up, the print is super small. You can’t make it bigger and it is to small to read.
There are also a lot of grammar errors In the news articles or missing or extra words.
Too many notifications
You guys send way too many, not at all important notifications. Most things aren’t breaking news, but you wouldn’t know by reading your notifications. I don’t need a push notification letting me know your AM news is on early due to snow (and 1-3” at that!), or what story is next at 5. If I wanted to watch tv, I wouldn’t need your app. I’ll get my news somewhere else.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
