Was good, starting to go downhill
(For the current version in early 2016, it has become a tacky unprofessional app getting pop up ads and ones that won't go away. I may have to just start viewing the mobile site on the ad block plus phone web browser.)
The app works pretty good features are nice. A future improvement that would be nice to be able to choose what type of notifications you get sent. It also would be nice if we had the live viper radar instead of weather underground, but it works good too I guess. It is nice being able to move around and zoom in & out on the radar.
Also, it would be nice to see the part come back where you could submit picture and video reports to the news station. If they do being it back, if they would be able to make the submissions without having to have e-mail set up on the device so that it would just send through the app.

The ads are distracting. I realize they have to be there, but to cover the story right in the middle of reading it, you then have to stop, delete the ad and start reading again. The update is great I appreciate knowing what's going on when I don't have a chance to watch the news sometimes. Now, to your weather app, could you please make the Viper radar colors a little different, when you show moisture coming into the area it would be easier to see if the moisture was a darker color, it looks washed out the way it is now.
Poor choice adding the pop up ads
Too many news outlets are resorting to pop up ads that interrupt reading and require the user to close the pop up. I have reached such a point of frustration with this that I now simply close the site altogether (or in this case, delete the app). If the developers of this app release an inexpensive, paid version without pop up ads, I might download it. If they opt for scrolling ads at the bottom, no problem. Interrupt my reading, though, and your app isn't worth my time. I hope this is one trend that news outlets will turn away from quickly.
