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.

We are a retired military family who moved to the area back in 2004 at which we’ve been hooked on 5NEWS. We tried watching other news casts but end up going back to 5 news. You all are an awesome group of people who know what they are talking about. Thank you for all that you do for this area.


Bring back weather app

5 news will always be our favorite go to for local news, but I don’t like the weather app being discontinued! The radar on the new app has plenty of flaws that I won’t list here, it will be extremely frustrating to those who aren’t tech savvy or just want to check the radar. The radar on the weather app was great and very user friendly! I evened used it while my husband was working in the Florida Keys and it was extremely accurate! Please consider bringing it back!!!
