Brings News to me Instantly to my iPhone Lock Screen

I frequently travel especially to New York City and downloaded this app to keep tabs on daily weather report, traffic, road closures and local news. Since then, I kept the app even back at my hometown In Hawaii because it sends important news directly to my iPhone lock screen and just swipe right from the lock screen to view the article easily. Now I’m vacationing in Japan and I immediately heard of news back in U.S. The app is easy to use, just download it and allow notification when it prompt you at setup. You can have news you can use and be aware of what’s happening in the world. It only does push notification on top stories so it’s not too much notification. Thank you for the app, keep up the good work!

This is a good app, but one bug I’ve noticed with it is that the badge number on the app icon keeps increasing each time I get a notification even though I’ve already cleared the alerts in the alerts section within the app. So for example, if in a day I get 3 notifications the app would display a badge with the number 3 and I’d go and clear out the alerts in the app and the badge number would disappear but then when another notification comes in, the badge would display the number 4 instead of 1. So it acts like I still haven’t cleared out the alerts even though I did.

UPDATE: Latest update to the app fixes the inaccurate badge bug.

BREAKING NEWS: it’s a great app!

When I worked in the corporate world, I only watched NBC to get my day started, because I could relate to their anchors the most — they felt like “my tribe”, with the same sense of humor as me. Although I left the corporate world a long time ago and no longer watch the news (it’s too depressing), I still want to know when important events happen that could affect me and my family. Enter the NBC 4 NY app and its Breaking News feature....

Although when the COVID pandemic started, they overused that functionality, because when the new cases *doubled* (which made it sound very dramatic) from 4 to 8, for example, I have to admit I was a little annoyed. If the cases doubled from 400 to 800 overnight, THAT would’ve been “breaking news.”

I give the app four stars, because it keeps me informed, and I like that the news is separated by type. It’s much better than going to WNBC’s mobile website. Some articles, however, take too long to load. Sometimes, there is only a video available — I understand that this is a news station’s app, but I prefer to read my news (it “registers” better with me), so having a transcript available for every video would be nice.

Thank you for being there for me all these years!
