By far the best Iowa news app

I have apps from Des Moines news sites and Waterloo/CF/CR and this app is the best by far. It is easy to navigate; the layout is clear and not cluttered with all sorts of extras; you can read the articles rather than watch if you choose which is great when you can’t listen to an audio. They also report more news! If I hear about something happening via social media and want to check it out, a few of the news stations do not have it, but WeAreIowa will. Thanks for a great app!

I watch very little news because of the political spin on Everything. I would rather read it and can quickly move on when I see something stupid trying to make us feel like the present administration in DC even deserves to be there. When the news shows Biden trying to make a point without a prompter or 2 weeks of rehearsal I will watch again. No one has anything bad to say about how the disastrous border policy. Unfortunately the news is a leftist tool and no longer trusted

Love it!

The app works great now. I love the fact that I can get news updates and weather forecasts when I want them. The watch function is a cool feature I’ve used several times as well. I’m glad I can watch your news and weather with the app, so I never miss the news or forecast if I can’t watch on my home tv.
