Rarely a problem


Love this app. Only issue I have is, when I get a notification about a news story or weather alert, if I don’t click on the notification immediately, and just open the app to find it myself, I can’t always find it.

Was the best now the worst!

Before some of the last iOS upgrades I always use 40/29 news app (when I wanted news) and the 40/29 weather app (when I wanted weather) I started getting alerts that the weather app was going away, so I updated bad mistake. The new 40/29 News/weather app is the worst app ever! what happened to all the weather features? Very disappointing. Will be deleting the new app shortly unless they improve soon.

Great news and weather


This is a great way to get the latest news. Also they have the best weather radar!
