What's New in Version 4.8
New fix for live video bar crash, plus all previous fixes for weather bookmarks, time stamps and comments.
Needs filter for alerts badly
They have push notifications down. The app alerts you several times a day for every little thing. EVERY morning I get between 5 and 10 "alerts" for slow traffic or an accident on a highway over an hour away from me, well after I'm already at work.
There is a button under settings to configure push notifications. This button pops up a message telling you to go to your device settings to configure notifications. Ok. That's entirely not useful. The competitor (5 News) app allows me to choose the alerts I want to receive. (Traffic, breaking news, sports, weather, etc). This one feature alone has me considering deleting this app. I have no need for traffic updates. I don't want them. It is not breaking news that traffic is slow on I49. It's become a joke when the alert comes in to try to guess where the accident is before we look at the phone. I hardly even bother to look at them now.
Give us the option to filter the alerts that come in. That or I'll find a different service that does...oh there is one already.
Great app! With best local weather and news
Great app with lots of local news and love the weather! The radar is easy to view. Really good mix of local news, entertainment and viral content. Comes with push notifications for traffic which are helpful if u live in this area or drive I540. The best app in the marke!
Previous apps that I've had for local weather, not in this area had poor graphics, like the radar was a picture that was updated every 30 minutes, but 40/29 has a great app with great graphics and it has everything you need to know to be a in the know Arkansan.
