Great for Cord-Cutters

It’s a great way to get a local snapshot in a few mins as I have breakfast or prepare for bed. My wife is enjoying it too. While the content can be improved in volume and other ways the reason I gave it 5 stars is, I LOVE that the news is given as facts without opinions.

I would like to see a bit more interactivity as it grows. By this I mean, it would be great to be able to select suburban areas outside of the metropolitan locations for news and weather. I would also like to have a larger variety of news sans opinions, which I feel is the biggest asset here.

Keep it up.

Local Now app is awesome!

This app is nice to have whenever I want to check on the weather along with local and national news. One of the best things to have as a cord cutter. Also, it gives you The Weather Channel whenever there is severe weather coverage which works perfectly since I was able to gets updates on Hurricane Michael (the app will tell you if there is live feed available with a bell below the screen). Definitely the best app I have used on my iPhone ever!

Was nice, but

I don’t use this app for my city, but to stream the Weather Channel. My “local” is a city that I visit maybe once a year. This app is useless to me. Bring back live stream and I’ll change my rating.
