What's New in Version 5.1.0
We’ve heard your feedback and are happy to release a new version of the app that brings back landscape mode for iPad users along with many other new features and bug fixes.
-Tilt your iPad in any direction you’d like and the app will work.
-You can now watch the video forecast via a link on the weather page and tap into a more extensive collection of maps and weather images.
-Sign up for push alerts based on the topics that interest you
-Push notifications now reliably open directly to stories (when applicable)
-The main menu is now swipeable - making for fast and easy access to content in the app.
-Resolved a bug that made the interactive radar not load full-screen on the iPad.
-Many other bug fixes you won’t see, but that make the app work better and faster.
This is a good news app for the on-the go person. The platform could be improved, but overall it's satisfactory.
Push notifications turning to spam
The notification that started my review was "FBI searching for someone flashing a laser pointer at an airplane." This is like spam. This does not deserve a push notification.
In much need of improvement
The new app is terrible. Full of bugs and advertisements. Old app was much better. I use the app to quickly find out what's happening and now I'm bombarded with videos and ads.
