News not Program Info

I can only give this app a 2 star rating. The news itself is great. And the app, while a bit laggy and clunky at times, is better than what you’d expect for a local news app. However, the real reason for the low rating is that there is no way to turn off the program alerts. Sending me breaking news alerts is fine and exactly what I signed up for. But pushing an alert for figure skating finals or for the live version of some ridiculous holiday movie is VERY ANNOYING! Please consider changing this.

Simple app for everyday people

Up to date news. Important info for those tech savvy. easy to use for older people. More disabled options needed. Accessory is important... I didn’t try everything to see if it was accessory compatible. I’m dyslexic and I can read it but I do worry about the others who can’t. 4/5 only because I didn’t see it but it’s not a big deal, because figuring out disability is hard.

Great Local App

The local, and national news are great and are delivered quickly. However, the weather portion of it is a plus. Every time there’s a chance of rain or it’s raining close by we are notified, also we can have a live and predicted forecast which gives us more credibility and information.
