App is Great

I use to watch channel 5 news everyday for years now I can’t, so I’ve been using this app for awhile for weather and local information and love it. I don’t need to spend much time finding out update information and I always consult it for the current weather. I’ve even watched the live streaming and was content with it. So all in all it’s great !!

Needs improvements

It’s the only game in town here in Vermont. So it should work flawlessly (the app crashes from time to time), and the news bulletins should be relevant. Im not interested in being alerted on “feel-good” stories. I’m also not interested in being alerted on news that’s happened 3 or more days ago and has already been aired on WPTZ-TV. Please don’t use the notifications as an advertising gimmick!

Old weather app was better.

All I use the app for is weather. The old one that is “going away” is better. This one is difficult to use and hard to see. Who puts white text over white clouds? The icons depicting what the weather will be hour by hour are horrible. It’s too bad, I really liked the old one and used it all the time. Maybe if they actually read the reviews and fixed some of the problems it would be tolerable.
