What's New in Version 4.9.3
The latest is always the greatest!
You can now get push notifications that open up the article directly! No more trying to find that article in the app.
We've also added a Notification Center which is where all pushed stories are in case you missed them.
We also redesigned the front page to have the extended forecast right on the front screen.
There are also some design improvements that just make the app better.
Send us suggestions and feedback as we want to make it the best news app for you!
The app appears fine. 8 News has a distorted view of what constitutes "breaking news." Power outages, school lockdowns, 9/11...THAT is breaking news. Puppies being raffled, bond elections, identifying an officer in the latest OIS...MGM HOSTING THE MAYWEATHER FIGHT...not breaking news!!! Deleting app..."breaking news" notifications are relentless & about topics not worthy of the distinction. 5pm broadcast yes, but not "stop what you're doing-this is important RIGHT NOW" information. Horrible journalism! I don't need a "breaking news" alert on every story you are working on.
For a news station that says they are on it 24/7 they seem to take the weekends and holidays off, and leave top stories on for a week sometimes. Seems like instead of 8 News Now they should call it 8 News when we feel like it. There is a newscast everyday so there are people working on bringing the news to the public, except on this app.
Where's the weekend news?
This app is my go to one for Las Vegas local news...except on the weekends! There RARELY is any update on the news after Friday evening's live broadcast until late Sunday afternoon. What a shame that this has not been remedied yet!
