Had app for years, real nice would like better weather interactive radar

I appreciate the alerts. I like hearing about what’s going on and we talk about the updates at work. I would like more traffic updates. I would also like a better weather interface when I’m watching for tornadoes. The Hattiesburg news station app has a much easier to read weather interface. The weather interface is the only reason I subtracted a Star.

News on the Go

I like being able to get the major headlines and any breaking news as it happens and The Severe Weather Alerts. I don’t like how some stories lead you to a page that’s 98% dragging you from Ad to A to be anke to read the story. That should be stopped. I know ads pay the bills and are very necessary but some of the stories linked on your website have Malicious links in them. And if your not careful scrolling quickly you’ll hit those scare tactic pop ups made to fool simpler minds into purchasing something. But all in all if you stay on local events only your ok.

It is ok, but there are issues

Reading the stories and watching the accompanying videos are fine, but I do not like the haphazard layout of the news page. Since I don’t have a television, I watch on my iPhone or iPad. However, it often takes more than 5 minutes for the Live broadcasts to begin, and sometimes, they never connect. Too many times a reporter gets cutoff in the middle of a story, an anchor will be giving a story that has another story playing on top of it, video stops and repeats what was just said, or it just stops playing altogether. I do like the notifications throughout the day.
