What’s New

Version 41.5.0

The news is important; that's why we work to make it easier to access in our app.

-This latest build brings you larger, more legible text on articles and a design change to our video player that makes the mute and closed caption icons easier to tap.

-Videos from the top of our article pages will shrink down and stick to the top of the screen as you pass them so you can keep an eye on the visual part of the story while you scan the page. Prefer to focus on the text? Just swipe the video up and away to close.

-Just some backend performance work this time around to make sure your experience stays smooth.

We've also fixed a handful of bugs.

So far so good. You listened to your reviewers. Enjoying the ability to read the article as well as watching the video, allowing the user that make the choice. I love the fact that you've reduced the advertisements and placed them in the lower portion of the page, no more intrusive pop ups in the middle of the articles while I'm reading. These adds were so annoying almost to the point of stopping me from using the app. to obtain my news. It looks like you've done your homework and retained the important features, removed the annoying ones and added the correct number of fixes and updates. Now if you can make minor refinements over time along with a few intuitive updates to remain current we'll have a positive award winning app. Congratulations

Response to GINNEC , ACCUSING WHTM OF BEing too liberal .

It depends on how we define liberal. I mainly watch WHTM for my local news and givE WHTM credit for its balance balance its direction down the centrist lane.

Being critical of Trump has become a necessity , as his ego is too unstable to handle the job. Trump’s incompetence and refusal to face the reality that this pandemic is a crisis deserves much press coverage.

Trump’s mismanagement of the pandemic is the most newsworthy event since 911. Even though I’m a democrat I wish that trump had succeeded because we all could’ve benefitted if Trump had succeeded .

Need to have streaming

Since I am blocked by the greed war between your owners and Directv. It would be great if I could stream my otherwise favorite news cast. I’m having to go to another local channel in the meantime. Would rather be watching your broadcast.
