New App Not Good ,

Newly updated app is not as good

The newly updated version is not as good as the other. Titles are not as bold AND way too many Ads!!! If your fingers accidentally touch one, it pops into a commercial! The Allen and Allen ads are awful to click out of!!!! The tiny X in the corner doesn’t always respond and when it does, switches over to web commercial! I have been forced to se it several times before I can get to the news!!!!!! Downloaded your app for the purpose of reading the news! You won’t let me!!!

New Version is Terrible

Yesterday when I opened my NBC12 app, it contained a statement that a new version of the app was available, in that the current version that I was viewing would no longer contain updated new stories. It directed me to download the new version of the app. So I did. The new version is nothing short of terrible. It is extremely cluttered, filled with ads and annoying pop ups, and a ridiculously oversized default font. Several times now, I have inadvertently opened and I merely trying to scroll among different stories. And, curiously, several of the news stories appear TWICE. This new version of the app is a huge step BACKWARDS. If if significant improvements are not made to the NBC 12 app, I will likely delete it and instead download one of the other Richmond news station apps. They cannot be any worse. I truly do not understand what NBC12 was thinking when it thought this new version was an improvement. Very frustrating.

Latest Update

I use channel 12 as my only go to for news and weather. BUT this latest update and changes that were made are terrible. The format of your app is not user friendly. I don’t want to spend all day getting to the info I want. You send me a notification of some thing happening now, click on note and does not take me to the article of the notification. Please, please do a better update or I will have to find another app for local happenings.
