Great App

I don't like the annoying ads that blink off and on while I try to read the news, and I cannot put my precise location into the weather section. They are saying their regular weather app will no longer be updated, so even though it allows me to put my precise location, this app does not allow it yet, in the weather section. Tornados don't just hit Fayetteville, in general. So, I would like to have the app allow me to use my location on the radar, and not just use the city of Fayetteville, AR.

I am so disappointed with the new app. I have all the news notifications turned off yet I’m still getting them. The weather map will not mark my location even though I have location “on when using app”. It will only work with the location on “always”. I really liked the separate weather app. It was quicker to get to, and more relevant for me than what I’m seeing on this new app. Sorry. Channel 5 is still our primary news and weather station, but I’m don’t like this new app.
