This is a great app for local news. The issues with crashing from older reviews have been resolved and I don’t have any trouble with them. I would have given the app a 4 or 5 star rating just a couple of weeks ago but within the last few weeks ads have appeared everywhere. I understand that you need to make money on a free app and ads are acceptable for this. But you’ve crossed the line into disrespect when you’ve replaced a person’s obituary picture with a local realtor’s smiling face. Bad form ClarksvilleNow.
Leans left but they try and do their best to be balanced. They partner with Dash10 media so they even have video from serious accidents in town. In a nutshell a good source of local news for the 5th largest town in TN (180k) and 147th largest in the US. We have no major networks here and all is out of Nashville so this is the best we can get.
When you get a notification of a news article, it is NEVER immediately available on the app, it redirects you to a website. That website works about 10% of the time when I try to read the article. They definitely need to fix their website and update they’re articles on the app in a timely manner!
This app really helps me keep up to date with the most current things happening in Clarksville and Montgomery County. If I hear something is happening in our City it’s the first place I go to find out more!
I think I’d rate this higher if the ads Didn’t obscure text from the stories. I haven’t found a way to get rid of the ads and see what was being hidden underneath. I’m losing pertinent info to the story
It crashes too many times. When it does open up (after four or five times of crashing), it has great content. However, even the content can be upgraded or changed to reflect the current news going on in the city, county or region. I feel the developers created this app and then failed to upkeep with the maintenance. If you're one of the few who have no problems with it, then consider yourself lucky! If not, then you're better off waiting until you can get to a computer to log onto the Leaf Chronicle!!
I've never written a review, but had to on this one. I downloaded the app to stay informed about Clarksville since I have no television. I can't even open the app. It always says "Content Loading" and after a minute if this it closes out. Keep trying to open it, but nothing. Will be deleting this app.
This app wouldn't be half bad if it wasn't geared towards the happenings of FT Campbell and little of Clarksville. Also thus app crashes about 4 times before you can actually use it. Hey if you want to dedicated an app to Campbell create one
For some reason it only has articles regarding stuff going on with Ft. Campbell... No articles are listed under the local section. Not really worth the download as it would be less of a hassle and gain access to more stories by using safari to go to their page...
