Bad formatting of some stories
Some of the stories do not format properly for my iPhone screen. About 1/3 of the text is not visible on the left edge. Don’t remember having that problem in the past. Maybe a bad update?
I’m actually grateful for whatever issue they’re experiencing with the ads right now (no longer player in between breaks, just says “pardon the interruption, we’ll be right back”) because they’re so ridiculously repetitive. The same 4 real estate, auto sale, legal aid, and Grady/credit union bank commercial plays over and over again. It’s very annoying. Other than that, the actual live news streams okay. Ads are out of control and all over the place. I get it’s a free app, but come on. I’d much rather watch it on TV due the poor construction of the app.
Several issues I've noticed.
There are far too many notifications. So many that I've simple turned them all off.
Second issue I've noticed is that you can't email issues to them from the app unless you use Apple mail. For those of us that use another email client, the app just errors and tells us to setup at least one email address. Be smart enough to launch other email apps, or simply put the message form within the app itself, bypassing our local mail client entirely.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
