Keeping up with the metroplex

I wrote this months ago and thought I had posted it then, but found I had not. My opinion of this app has not changed. It is great, easy to use, and still has excellent videos, alerts, remote footage, etc. I am sorry I failed to post this at that time: After living in Arlington for 10 years, we moved back to Wichita Falls. As we still have family in the DFW area, when severe weather broke out right above our grand-daughter’s apartment, I went right to live feed of the area on the local NBC app. Felt much better after watching the live feed for awhile and put the app on my phone. Thanks to this great, clear app, we have peace of mind as we check it quite often, especially when something’s amiss in her area. Up til now, we’ve never had any issues when using this app and commend them for the live feed, esp the good quality of the video within minutes of the severe tornado in the past year that caused quite a lot of destruction. Their chopper’s fly-overs while checking the destruction in the days following was always very clear and commend their chopper pilot for the steady flying.

This app is almost perfect but not quite

I love the idea behind this app but the execution is just not there. You can’t do anything without the live stream of NBC freaking out! I wanted to adjust my screens light so I pulled down the utilities menu on my phone. When I slid up it sent me straight back to the home page of the app. I went back to watch the stream and it came up with a service error, which always happens. I refresh it and it normally will work but it’s more than just trying to adjust something and the app reopening. I like to rotate and expand my videos but it is so fidgety!! There is no place to rotate the screen or zoom in/ out, therefore you can’t see the titles on news broadcasts, almost all of the time. It is so frustrating that I can’t manually press a rotation button. I’m left with it broadcasted tiny on the upper part of my screen because even when it does rotate to be bigger it almost always will go back to its small size on the upper half of my phone, even when in a horizontal position. Oh and when it falls flat on a surface it does the same thing. As I have said previously, the idea is great but the little errors get super frustrating and the videos don’t load 80% of the time... I’ll still keep this app but with a little frustration. It could all be due to maybe a new update needed or something.

Staff and news coverage

This is the only news channel we watch every a.m every evening we have watched it for years. I like everyone on the news. After a.m news we never miss the today show either. Some anchors left some retired and some passed still miss them. Really miss Cathy Gifford. The staff keeps the news interesting and informs you of many things. Love how the today show always brings new things like training the puppy until it leaves for a forever home. Will continue with channel 5 when you have the best why change?
Thank you to all staff for all you do to keep the news interesting and us well informed.

I also have the app on my phone and if I am away from home I go the app I love it
Only thing I would like changed is to be able to make comments but, for whatever reason it always says this site is not available.
