5 news

I love all the coverage and choice. I can read or listen to the reports I want to read. It is fast and great coverage. Local state national and international stories of the most important news. It’s good stuff right at my fingertips. I do not have to weight until 5:00 pm for the news.

Resets App Often


Why does this app reset every time you leave the app (while reading an article without closing the app) to look at something else like a text or anything else? Then after switching back to the Fox5 app you have to wait for the app to reset and go find the article you were reading? If you can find it because often that article cannot be found! Arrrgggg And what good is the Developer Website link in the App Store do if it does not go to the developers? It only takes you to the Fox5 news website?
