Thank you

Thank you for your accurate reporting. You have staff who are professional, caring and keep me well informed. Have sense of humor and even in this unsettled time you have done an excellent job keeping us informed without terrorizing us more. Thank you. I listen to news when it is on and programs. Keep up the great work. Stay safe and be well. Sue Reiffenstein

New format is terrible

New format is clumsy and a huge step backwards in my opinion. But the worst is the weather! We used to have the wonderful lightning track local Doppler and now it’s a basic live view like everyone else! And all the other locations are gone. Sure you can have 5 at the top now (I think I had 20 before saved) but you can only see the current day and even that you can’t see much of. 10 day forecasts are gone as well. And the alerts are gone or at least I can’t find them. I still get notifications that a storm warning is in effect for one of my old saved locations but when I click the notification it just takes me to the main page on the app?! What the heck? Biggest downgrade I’ve ever seen for any app, ever.

Frustrating App

I think the content and the folks at channel 9 news are great. With that said, this app is frustrating to use. You have to enable audio on every video you watch. In order to go back to search videos you need to hit a very small button to minimize the video first, however, the button is typically right next to an advertisement which opens up in your web browser taking you away from the app. As a user, I just want to click on a video and have it play, sound included. After watching a video, go back to the list with one click and play another video. It should be that simple. I hope this app gets fixed and becomes usable again.
