Great app - easy to navigate!!

Being a new user to this app, I was highly impressed with the effective and easy-to-use interface.
Highly recommend to keep up with News happening in major cities!



THANK YOU! Finally a much needed, long overdue update. I had assumed this app had just been forgotten about. I can’t tell you how great it is to be able to watch In The Papers and get my local NY1 News — especially when I have to travel for work. It’s the single reason I have kept paying for a Spectrum Cable subscription and was ready to just let it go and use streaming services instead.
One bit of feedback... I’m surprised it wasn’t designed as being “dark mode.” Hmm. Especially on an iPad screen there’s just way too much white space. It’s an odd choice. So, please at least add the option for a dark mode toggle. With more and more OLED displays and overall majority of iOS users opting for Dark Mode, it just makes the most sense.

Great improvement

The updated Spectrum app is great. Good variety, relevant, easy to read. Current weather at the top of the screen & time allocation to each story are super helpful. I don’t usually leave reviews but thought this update was worth it.
