News worthy

I love Fox 5. All of your crew seem genuinely like friends who enjoy working together. If not true, they are good actors. I love the Alerts I get when something is need to know.. The Live feeds are good, but the App has some bugs about it. It tends to repeat when going into and coming out of commercials. I don't have cable or an a ten a for my smart tv. But I always keep Fox 5 App in my iPad and this is the only way I can catch local news since cutting the cable.

Love Fox 5 but not the app

I have used the app for years to watch the news while getting ready in the morning; however, it has been giving me a great deal of trouble. I have had various issues in the past with its functionality, but for the past two weeks, it has gotten much worse. The app keeps shutting down just after it starts streaming. Earlier, it wouldn’t play most of the videos, but they seem to be working today, which made me think the streaming issue would also have been resolved. Nope! For some reason, the app works just fine on my husband’s much older iPad which even has less memory. My iPad and the app have all been updated, so I don’t know the cause. If someone could help me solve the problem, I would greatly appreciate it.

Great app

The app has a lot of delays in the past. Since they updated it I have no problems with it now. I moved to Florida a few years ago and I love being able to see all of the unique teams of reporters. The news teams give a fresh and diverse look at the local and national news story’s with a flair of personalities. Here in Tampa , it the same old non energetic, boring ,blond hair newscasters giving the “Only in Florida Type Stories. “ Feels just like being at home in the DMV using the Fox 5 app. Please add the smartcast technology to it so I can put on the big screen.
