What's New in Version 3.0.2
iOS 8 compatibility updates
Overblown coverage of storms
I might have received about 100 notifications for yesterday's storms. They are all the same too. Live update now, video update now, digital update now. New updated snow totals. On and on its unreal how many useless notifications they send.
Usually great for just local news. Turn off during a snowstorm. Unless you want an update every 30 mins that tells you the same thing over and over again.
This stuff is going to their heads. Relax action news.
Almost every time I open this app and watch a news video, the app crashes, to make matters worse, I have to watch the commercial that's ahead of the video AGAIN ! Just tried to open the app 3 x and won't even open. I just bought the iPhone 6 and I had the same problem with my iPhone 5s, so it's not my phone. Very frustrating app and it's the only one that I have problems with, so it's not my carrier either.
Notifications working in iOS 8!
The updated fixed the problem with missing notifications. Thanks a lot.
