Easy to use!

During a thunderstorm tonight, I went to a competitor’s new app for the radar. An old habit I guess. Forget being able to utilize it! Their app has been nothing but a headache to use since they launched it. Thus, I landed on KIVI’s app. I am so glad KIVI has kept it simple and made their app easy to use! The radar was immediately right there at my fingertips when I needed it. I don’t want a fancy app with pretty pictures. I want an app that allows me to smoothly scroll through the news items, not get dizzy from the main page moving up and down every time you press on a news item. And, I want an app that is easy to navigate with regard to the weather. KIVI’s app is exactly what I want. Great job have developed a great app and have a new fan!

Quick News

I like to receive the news as it happens or if there is a wreck on the freeway it’s great to know ahead of time. I like that 6 on Your Side is there to help the communities. Thanks good job 👍

App shuts down

Never had any complaints and the app worked great until a few weeks ago. Now whenever I try to open it, it opens to setting up notifications and then shuts down. I still receive the banner notifications just fine. Please fix the bug so I can get the news. Thanks!
