Won’t download.

I have a current iphone OS and this app will not download. Something seriously wrong with it. It finally downloaded after 4 tries.
Hope that’s not a bad sign.

Video Irritant

The app works well and the content is good. My complaint is that every time you play a video news article it plays a commercial “for the WSYX ABC app”. The same app that I’m watching the news on. E v e r y single video article leads with their own app advertisement. Every one! I understand the need to have commercials, but really? The same add for the app I’m using...on every video. Even the big network apps give you a break from commercials after you’ve seen a few. Way too irritating to keep watching. BTW ABC 6 Columbus is my favorite news station. I just wish they would modify their app.

Too many commercials

There are too many commercials that prevent this app from being worthwhile. I tried to get past the aggravation, but I eventually just deleted the app altogether. It’s a bummer because I decided to go without cable, so I have no way of getting local news except for watching their live newsfeeds and it’s just not worth the trouble.
