So Useful!


I love this app! Not only does it keep me updated with the weather (which is a huge factor of me using the app) but it helps keep me in the loop with the local news and it is great to get notifications during the day as the news breaks.
The forecast is great and the S-band radar is wonderful. I have been following their weather forecasting now due to the major upgrade with the S Band! Great App!!

Cannot Mute


Once you get to the NBC 5 program it’s ok unless you mistakenly tap on the app again. Then you have to go back through the entire commercial again that plays from the beginning every time you initiate opening the App. The mute indicator will not work on the advertising commercials which is annoying when you are trying to get the news and be quiet early in the morning. Since this started awhile back I seldom use the app anymore.

App Review


Love the app! Great weather reporting, love the way the app let’s me set up what type of news I want to view first and let’s me view on my front screen of phone. I love quick reporting of AMBER ALERTS as well. Love the quick response of all of the above. Overall set up of app gets a 5 Star rating for how user friendly it is. Hats Off And A Big Thank You From The Vickery Family!
