This app is my go-to for news specific to NoVa. I rely on it for COVID stats and other important updates. That said, recently they started using a pop up ad that you have to cancel or swipe to get to the stories. Not cool! Remove the ads and it’s a 5 Star app. With the ad, it’s a 2 Star. It’s 2021! Everyone knows pop up ads are shady. I understand the need for ad revenue, but not that way. It’s really the lowest form of advertising.
Since this update, there is a Purina advertisement that constantly pops up a video of a dog and blocks all content on the site. You can’t read anything without it constantly forcing itself across the entire screen. Beware!! Loved the app before this :(
If you live in PWC you should get this app. It works really well for a local newspaper app. I just expected it to have problems, but it doesn't from what I've seen. And it's free! Very nice Now they updated the software and made it even better! Seriously, everyone in Price William County should get this. They do a great job with HS sports and upcoming events as well as local news.
It's interface is top notch and it surpasses any other PWC news app in the market. I use this app every morning and recommend it to everyone I know. I've been using the Insidenova app for sometime now. Glad to have this app available again, it is a far superior product.
Always updating me on the information I need, when I need it. 100% worth downloading this App for more than just news. I love how I can always come here for the news in MY community and always find all the important stories that could impact my life. Thanks inside Nova!!
The app is useful for quick access but there is far too much advertising, most of it decidedly low class. If you really want to see something, you are probably better off using "Reader View" in Safari. The app is clearly based on similar Web coding used by other small news sources, and it comes with the sacrifices to the advertising that makes it affordable for the news organization to use it.
The only thing worse than this app is their mobile site. The site would work fine on my iPhone but no, there's a mobile site and a stupid app both of which it make it impossible to find or read the article I came to the site to read in the first place. Just fire all your mobile people and let people access the regular site without any interruption.
App is friendly enough, but, content is always far behind the current edition. Also, editorials and other op-ed are almost never available. The site needs to do much better at being as complete as its print version.
Downloaded the latest Rev & the photos still don't display. After adding stories, it would be nice if someone would scan through the app and correct the bad links. This is an ongoing issue on at least 5 iPhones that I know of. Also stories over 2 months old should be Deleated.
Daily only a few stories are added. Living in this area I see a whole lot more than what is reported here. They often will add a sentence or two to an existing story and pretend like it's been updated. Not great but could be worse
It looks good. It makes navigation easier. BUT it lacks real PWC news. Sports results at the HS level are limited and 2-3 days after the fact. Inside NOVA needs to look at the other electronic newspapers. It's not about the flash. It's about the news.
Why is this dumb app in the popular near you section when it doesn't even have one review. This is it's first review and I give it one star for sucking. I actually want to see what's popular around us and all I get is inside nova.
