Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
• A new weather radar map from our weather provider is in this app update, as our weather provider will discontinue the old radar map in the near future.
Please be sure to update to this version of our app to ensure your weather radar map continues to display radar in the future.
To upgrade the new radar map, we had to update the app's code base to support the latest iOS operating system versions. As a result, it's possible there could be some older iOS devices that may have trouble running this updated app.

Current weather forecast and video
I wish this app would be current with the written forecast AND the video forecast updating. When you click on the weather tab, you still get Bill Meck’s forecast from the night before, rather than Tom’s more current forecast. Same thing on the weekends, with Jill. So I search on Facebook for their pages to get the up to date forecast, text and video. Other networks in Lexington can get this right. Why not Lex 18?
The app this replaced was much better and to add insult to injury they now ask you to subscribe, if you wish to eliminate the advertising. LEX18 has been my go to news source for a long time because their app was superior to both 27 and 36. This “upgrade” puts them on par with the others. If they must ask for subscriptions, fine, but they should do it on the previous app. This was a move in the wrong direction.
Pauses audio when opened.
Opening the app pauses any audio currently playing. I’m uninstalling but will follow the release notes for updates to see when usability is improved.
