Keeps closing

About a week ago this app would shut down when I opened an article. I tried restarting my phone but it still happened. I just deleted the app and will now reinstall it. Hope this fixes the problem.

Only the commercials work!!!

This app is useless. I wanted the weather report re: a winter storm warning and after enduring two commercials which streamed flawlessly, the weather report on the storm wouldn’t stream. This is a repeated problem. So, out of sheer frustration I deleted the app. Channel 5 News is an online joke. When they decide to enter the 21st century for real I might come back because I do like their TV news. But their online app is pure crap and not worth it.

Like to keep up with local news

I am currently out of town, so getting the news from home is easy on this app... The only thing I have missed is a live feed. I assume I just haven't found it yet, but please review it for that ability. Make it easy to find.
