What's New

Version 6.17

Version 6.17:
• Peek and Pop: The Top Stories list in the app's home screen is now enabled with Apple's Peek and Pop technology, which lets users 'peek' (or preview) app content, and press a little deeper to 'pop' into related features in the app. With Peek and Pop, you can quickly Save a story to your device or Share it with friends.

• 3D Touch: The app's icon is now enabled with 3D Touch, an Apple technology that senses how deeply you press the display in iPhone 6S and later iPhone models. By 3D touching the app icon on your iPhone, you can go directly to the app's Top Stories, Weather and Search sections right from the home screen of your iPhone.

• We moved Video from the bottom navigation bar to the top of the app's home screen, so you can browse Top Stories by text or video.

• Additional bug fixes and performance improvements.

Love this app!

Jack's Nana

I have a couple local news apps downloaded and this is definitely my go to app. By far the easiest to use and read, and they are usually first with breaking news.



I gave it a 3 rating because until recently the news didn't get updated and would be the same or not even carry some of the top stories. Lately it is doing much better and seems to update more even on weekends.

Room for Improvement

This app gives current weather for my location within Omaha metro, which was main concern. But their presentations on news is not always current. Don't like the layout, too scattered.
