Ratings and Reviews
I really was only interested in the weather part of this App since I used the old NECN Weather App and they discontinued it. I like how your can have the weather open automatically when you launch the App. The weather portion of the App is very well done. The News section on my IPad is rather annoying, if you click on a story then return to the main news feed it takes you to the top of the news feed, not where you left off so you have to scroll down to get back to where you left off. And the Sports section is formatted differently than the News, also doesn’t seem to include sports schedules for the different teams. All in all a decent App, especially the weather part.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the review!
Where is “Set your start screen?”
Just downloaded the app. Had read reviews here, where the developer wrote that you can set your start screen so the app “feels like a weather app,” however, clicking on the NECN on the top left does NOT bring up a menu that lists that as an option (on ios- iPhone). Am I missing something, or has that feature been taken away? Hoping it’s the former, as I liked the older weather app; it’s the main reason I downloaded this news app. If there’s no option anymore to set your home screen, making it necessary to wade through a lot of other items just to navigate to what I really want to see, then I question whether I have use for it. Have read the FAQ for the answer to this question and could not find an answer. Might anyone please help?
Grey background is great!
After the last update I saw that the map background was grey. I didn’t like it! I learned I couldn’t change it back, so I thought to give it time.
I now find the contrast of the grey much better than the previous color!
The addition of the smart radar and the playback showing the moving radar works so much better than before! I’m sure I’ll find other improvements as I use it more and more. Thanks!
