So Much Promise... Terrible Interface.
FOX 17 has the BEST push notifications of any western Michigan news app. I am very impressed with how the people behind the scenes break the "important" news accurately, promptly and respectfully. With that being said, if you try to access the app, it glitches, freezes and runs so many ads you can't read the information. I don't want to, but I have to get my info from other sources because of this. Too much hard work is being done by the FOX 17 employees to have it ruined by some incompetent iPhone app programmer. Someone needs to fix the problem... i.e. hire someone who can actually make a working app.

Annoying ads
Worst ad implementation EVER! Almost makes app unusable. I'm getting all of my local news from Wood TV and MLive now.

Was a good app but now...
I used to love this app, however the updated version is full of so many ads and bugs its useless. I refuse to be bombarded with advertisements. Too much! There are so many and so oddly placed and full of video advertisement that you can't even read the news. Please fix bugs and reduce ads.

Terrible update
It was usable but now very slow and video tries to play in front of things. Will not let me scroll text. Dual menu confusing. Start over so I can get the news please. Only thing that works well is my banners.

Are you kidding me
The new app had promise... But now every time you want to read a story you have to wait for a advertisement to get done before you can read it.... Really Fox 17.... Come on!!!

Want to like it: but, no.
We're avid Fox17 news viewers and were excited for this app to provide news updates while we're about. Unfortunately, this app is just painful to use. Even on wifi it's incredibly slow. I can understand the need for ads but they are so cumbersome and obnoxious it's nearly impossible to ignore them. I'll likely keep it to get up to date weather info but unless performance improves dramatically I won't bother trying to get any news from it.
