Very good app

Very good app, timely news and weather updates. Only issue I have is when you click on a story from your cell phone Home Screen, the other alerts disappear. Wish the other alerts would remain like the way the CNN app performs. That way you can pick a story but go back later for the others. Once you’re in the app, it’s difficult to find the other stories.

The old Weather App was excellent - 5 stars for that but it’s being scrapped. The weather on the current site is terrible. It can be pouring rain but nothing shows on the map. I can’t get it to “remember” my chosen area no matter how many times I set it. Don’t even think about using it if you are in a hurry.
The traffic part of the app is completely useless. I can be stuck sitting in traffic on 52 for twenty minutes and it shows nothing! NEVER count on it for traffic.
The news arrangements make no sense. The stories are all over the place when it comes to organizing content. Often stories stay up for several days when you know that plenty of other stories could & should replace them.
If you like ads and have plenty of time to sit through them to get to where you need to go, maybe you won’t mind using this.

Sometimes quite frustrating

The biggest reason that I use the WXII app is for weather. Frequently the weather video is many hours if not days behind, especially on the weekend. I would think that once the weather had been aired at the different times during the day, the recording could be posted fairly quickly. Many times I check it around 1:00 or 2:00 PM and the 6:00 AM video is still on. Or checking the weather mid-morning on Saturday or Sunday it may still be the Friday night forecast.
I do appreciate the weather alerts, though.
Thanks for your hard work!
