So much better than 22 News app!

I really only use the app to keep up with local weather here in Western Mass and for the past 4-5 years I only knew about the 22 news which is terrible if you want to be informed about the weather! Every weather report is short, minimal information and choppy overall. I’m so happy I found this app because I can watch the weather every 2-3 days and be prepared for what’s coming. Every weather report is clear and very detailed, which ai absolutely love! Plus covers a few days in advanced which helps for when I don’t have time to check the weather.

My New Favorite

I use the app to watch live Morning broadcasts while getting ready for work. I used to be a faithful 22 watcher. No more. The app is far less glitchy and it keeps getting better. And the newscasters have great chemistry. They seem like really nice, caring people - very personable. Good morning Western Mass! 😃

Notifications now OFF...

I love the app, but I really wish there was a way to specify what type of alerts/notifications I receive.... I don’t need a “Football kicks off today” or “there could be something in your kitchen making you sick, watch tonight at 11 for the whole story”... I do want the breaking news alerts (emergency, weather, safety situations, etc...). But the programmers really need to calm down with the “anything and everything” for notifications.
