Great News

I have been watching live 5 news all of my life. Live 5 is always accurate as well as on time. Live news always has the interest of the low country community at hand. Thanks

Not that positive feedback

The app is buggy. Crashed until I reinstalled it. After update. At least it must be a communication from the development team about the update. That might be easily detected if tested, which does not seem to happened.
Video- it was mentioned in several comments- you can and perhaps must make full screen when you flip the device. You may use the libraries and methods that already there.
Adds - beyond ridiculous. You play the adds content then throwing another picture add after which the video content is not played. The user must play the video again and watch another add preceded the video content.
No feedback/comments available. Is that how good quality product being delivered?
Understanding that the developer does its best.. maybe it worth to find someone qualified to do the work? Maybe it worth to rethink the marketing model? There are standards in app design and development. This is 2019. You are representing the city.

Mixed feelings! ,

Live5 News

This at first was an awesome it is getting bogged down with unnecessary ads and duplicated stories. Also the stories have a lot of misspelled words and are hardly updated once posted. Another difference is the reporting of news on the weekend seems to be non existent or very vague and again there are a lot of editing errors or the stories never get updated although they say “Stay tuned for updates”. Live5 News used to be my favorite until the quality off the app went down. I hope they correct these issues.
