Great Local News Source

June 2018: This app has finally arrived. It works smoothly and seems to be quite stable. The interface is clean, uncluttered, and intuitive. There are a number of ads, of course, but they are not overwhelming or overly intrusive. This is a great source for local news and important developments such as the weather and school closings.

January 2017: I haven't reviewed this app for three years now, but my previous comment stands. I don't find it as bad as some others, and I do find it a good source of information for local news. Weather reports in school closings are vital information for me. However, this latest update has crashed it. It opens and locks on the screen that says "fetching articles".

Jan 2014: Latest update is causing crashes. Can't use the weather button at all as it crashes the app.

After some very bad versions, this app finally works well. The UI is clear and works smoothly. Navigation is very good.

All in all this is now pretty decent app and good for local news, weather, and school closings.

The Whole Press Conference

I am grateful you carry the President’s Press Conferences but am greatly disturbed and upset that you apparently refuse to carry it all. You show part of it and in recent conferences have cut out doctors or other government leaders who are giving us needed information. I am not sure if you have decided whether or not that it is all relevant, but that should be for us to decide. We need the office of the Presidency supported and not undermined. We need to hear what our leaders are doing or not able to do. When you cut away from our leaders then your newscasters try to say what has just been said. In a coronavirus pandemic an hour a night or what is needed is part of your purpose in serving the community and nation. I turn to other channels to get more until they cut off the conference. Saying we can go search for the rest somewhere else does not cut it fo me. Please consider these comments seriously.

Video Auto Play

Excellent app. for news, school closures and more. It seems the most recent update has added video auto play to news stories. It was startling. Be aware that there is a very clear setting that allows you to disable auto play.
