Easy to keep up with what’s going on

I’d always used the app to get more info on the news and weather (great to pull up the map with your home area marked and see what’s coming). Also good for checking out weather other areas. But, recently when I was without cable service for several days, it showed its value in another way. I kept up via streaming newscasts, etc. My first experience, but won’t be the last! Also like responding to your occasional polls on various topics. The app makes it so easy to stay in touch.

Big problems & facebook login???

For some bizzarre reason i cant figure out the app asked me to allow
it to use my location to login to Facebook!!! I repeatedly have said no to this but it keeps coming back on to my screen over the news & weather stories i am trying to read.
I know these people who made the app are able to get on to Facebook in other ways so they really do need to check security for this! Its been going on for months now & i'm so mad about this i had to post this. Please NBCUNI fix this app!!! There are too many problems & bugs & glitches with it. i like it & i dont want to have to ditch it but i will delete it if this "allow NBC4 to login to Facebook allow or cancel?" continues i will delete the entire app!
Besides it takes up too much space!
There should be a different weather NBC4 weather app anyway! Its the weather thats the best part of the app! Also please update the location & timing too because rain & snow is always at my location long before it shows up on the tv & the App! Please fix all this!! Thanks!! Otherwise still a great app but get rid of news stories that are from 2011 & a long time back. Archive that stuff offline please. Thanks!

Love the alerts but now scroll freezes and app crashes

This app is my go-to for local DMV news. It’s great for breaking news alerts. For the past couple of months though the app has been freezing while I’m mid-article and won’t let me scroll up or down. Always have to go back to home page and start the article over and try to keep the scroll in motion to prevent it from freezing. As of today now the app is also crashing, though maybe that could be because of increased demand on the eve of the presidential election. Lots of duplicate articles, not all of which have text, some only have video which I don’t want when I’m reading in bed at night and don’t want to wake my spouse. Sometimes really old articles from several years ago randomly appear in the feed as if they’re new.
